You don’t need to a psychic to know whatever story line they come up with there are be a lot of people who will hate it. But if I could get through Kevin robbing banks in a Chipmunk outfit– the tedious who killed Diana Jenkins murder mystery, the whole revolving door of who is Jill really related to and the hell that was Daisy and her twin and still watch I guess I be up for anything.

And before anyone says anything– yes I drink Koolaid– lemon flavor– LOL.

I personally don’t care for these type of storylines. Too many cast members not being utilized without bringing on more.

She kinda looks like Mariah. And also resembles the last Heather.
Anyway, I usually think they should stop with so many new characters,
but I do think this could be interesting.

Well, it could be interesting. I was a big fan of Madame Delphina myself.
I don’t believe in psychics, but I admit to using the Magic 8 ball from time to time.

Dear Eight Ball, will Pratt improve Y&R? (Shaking 8 Ball) “Don’t count on it.”

Caroll Spinney, Legendary Sesame Street Puppeteer Behind Big Bird And Oscar The Grouch, Dead At 85

More sorrowful news on Sunday.  Caroll Spinney, the legendary puppeteer behind beloved Sesame Street characters Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch,died today,  at the age 85 at his home in Connecticut.  Spinney has been suffering from dystonia for quite some time.

For the body of his life’s work, Spinney received many significant honors.  He was the recipient of four Daytime Emmy awards, as well as the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006, the Library of Congress’ Living Legend Award, two Grammy awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Sesame Street workshop put on this press release upon his passing: “Caroll was an artistic genius whose kind and loving view of the world helped shape and define Sesame Street from its earliest days in 1969 through five decades, and his legacy here at Sesame Workshop and in the cultural firmament will be unending. His enormous talent and outsized heart were perfectly suited to playing the larger-than-life yellow bird who brought joy to generations of children and countless fans of all ages around the world, and his lovably cantankerous grouch gave us all permission to be cranky once in a while.

Welcomed to Sesame Street by Jim Henson, Caroll thrived under a mentorship that led to a decades-long great friendship. Caroll’s unparalleled career saw Big Bird visit China with Bob Hope, dance with the Rockettes, be celebrated with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a U.S. postage stamp, and named a “Living Legend” by the Library of Congress. A favorite highlight for Caroll was conducting symphony orchestras and performing with them across the United States, Australia, and China, allowing him to personally connect with families everywhere through the music of Sesame Street. Caroll Spinney gave something truly special to the world. With deepest admiration, Sesame Workshop is proud to carry his memory – and his beloved characters – into the future. Our hearts go out to Caroll’s beloved wife, Debra, and all of his children and grandchildren.
