To appear normal on black-and-white TV, actors in the 1940's wore black lipstick and green make-up.
60 minutes was in the Nielsen top 10 for 23 straight seasons, a TV record.
Actors who came VERY close to working on TV series: Gene Hackman almost got the father's role for the Brady Brunch.

In Bewitched, two child actresses were considered for Tabitha toddler days- these were Helen Hunt and Jodie Foster.
In Three's Company, Billy Crystal auditioned for the part landed by John Ritter. The role made Ritter a big star.

Here is some news from December 9th to now:
Gatestone: "Firebombing Jewish Children in Sweden" This occurred last Saturday night in Gothenburg, Sweden, where a synagogue was the target and 30 kids and teens were attending an activity. Media either played down the attack or denied it. When the first fire bomb hit, the teens and kids were quickly rushed into the building's cellar, by guards." (Armed guards have become a fixture at European synagogues these days.) ALSO- "Bangladesh: Runaway Muslim Persecution of Hindus" Story by Moshin Habib. This is an opinion piece- "If you want to root out a Hindu family from its ancestral home in Bangladesh, just accuse one of its members of insulting the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. You will find thousands of Muslims rushing to burn the Hindu family's whole neighborhood down, without hesitation or evidence.
Patriot Powered News: "UN Pushing For $65 Million to Teach Palestinians to Fight Israel", American Center for Law and Justice, a long advocate for America's top Middle-east ally, is asking the US Ambassador to the United Nations to fight a plan to turn over $65 Million to the Palestinians to teach them to fight Israel in the courts. UN Officials said they would pay the Palestinian Authority to wage lawful warfare against the State of Israel.

ALSO- Israel now plans to build 6,000 new homes in East Jerusalem, following Trump's announcement.
ALSO- Magnitude 6.0 earthquake jolts Southeast Iran on 12/1 (I still believe these are underground nuke tests). A 6.6 earthquake hit Micronesia on 12/8. Then a 5.5 earthquake hits India's northern state on 12/7. Japan is hit by a 5.2 quake on 12/6.

That's all the news right now. If you're asking why I keep an eye on the world's earthquakes and my answer is, I am watching what God is doing around our globe. I used such action in my "Fire & Ice"Series. Now waiting to be edited in the new year. Yes, I believe some of these quakes could be caused by underground nuke testing. I believe this to be true for the Iran area quakes. I believe Iran is violating our nuclear deal... you now the one where we gave them billions of dollars not to soil their hands with nuclear technology. I mean these people hate us, why should they keep their word on a non-Muslim country. They laugh at us and sent their missile technology to North Korea, but with War possible between the US and North Korea, they're back to doing their own work.
I am not a nut or a survivalist freak, but I do read a lot of news sights that keep an eye on our country's ways and means in taking care of its citizens in the event of a nuclear war. I am not satisfied with our current ability to handle our country's population, especially those in the lower income bracket. But, don't fret over our country's leaders, it is all laid out for them to be alive when the missiles STOP flying. They've planned well for that time- they had to be, or the United States will not stand as it is now or possibly for another 50-years. I also believe that after the nukes stop, the religious wars will begin and it will be a cruel action. And maybe sometime in the future for our great-grandchildren the Two Witnesses will arrive in Jerusalem. If it's sooner, hey that's great.
I've read a lot of historical/religious (non-fiction) books in how after every great war in the modern era the survivors predicted the Lord's return. Some thought it would happen after the American Civil War. But millions predicted World War One was for sure the time, but no Witnesses. World War Two was a much larger war and actually was a worldwide war. The new Christians of China who survived such a dreadful and deplorable action by the Japanese troops were ready, for they seriously believe that after what they went through, the Lord had to be coming to rescue them. Again, no Two Witnesses. Word of God says the Two Witnesses will appear and remain untouchable for 1240 days. That's basically three and a half years, but again in Jerusalem. No show. A lot of Chinese returned to their former religions and I was told that the people of Nanjing, also spelled Nanking, that the Baptist Missionaries were no longer welcome. Test of faith in a major way after you read what happened to the people- 170 plus thousands murdered and raped in a a single three-day weekend. Satan really reigned over that one.
Well, we've had Korea, Vietnam and now the desert wars. So, will it be a nuclear war that will soon welcome in the Two Witnesses? Only the Father knows and we tend to guess a lot.
That's it for today. God Bless you all, BILL
