I haven't had any trouble getting on here, for which I'm very thankful since I still can't get to the Mile (no one else can either) I'm having withdrawal symptoms here it's getting bad. :lol:

I am able to access his blog no problem, but when I click the link to the message board it takes quite a long time to load. And the other day it froze. It works eventually, just longer to load than it used to.

Ok- Dana. You must tell me where "Trouble right here in River City" comes from.

We were watching Mystery Science Theater 3000 and someone in the awful movie said "we've got trouble...." and Mike said "right here in River City!" Lol.

I looked online but found too many varying hits.....

Call me dense but I hadn't heard this before I saw you saying it here.... :oops: So now I wanna know!

Thanks-

Trouble Right Here in River City has been around for ages and was a song in The Music Man. I'm not sure if that is where it originated, or if it was used in the song as a saying from some earlier time.

I'm not really smart in one thing, but I have a head filled with trivia and trivial things.

:) Thanks, Dana. Nothing wrong with knowing lots of stuff....it'll keep you from getting Alzheimer's (or as Denny Crane would call it- the Mad Cow.)

That was great- I've never seen The Music Man....looks like I'd enjoy it. :)

And to think.....I wanted one of those corrupting pool tables for our basement! :o

Well, the musical, even though set in a quaint time period, is even more obnoxious now. I've never watched The Music Man all the way through because it was too dorky even for me.

Really?

The only musical I've loved is, well, you know- Sweeney Todd.

I'm betting no one gets murdered in any way, shape, or form in the Music Man, eh? Or turned into a food product...

too dorky, DJ? watch your phraseology. ron makes me watch it about once a year or so. i always groan, but can't make myself stop. little ron howard is SO adorable! it's pre-opie time even, i think.

river city is a fictional town in iowa, and it was filmed in iowa.
