What Was His Real Name?

Most everybody who read comics in the 1950s and 1960s will remember Charles Atlas, the guy who wouldn't take sand in his face.

Angelo Siciliano was his birth name, by the way.  And they still sell exercise programs for 97-pound weaklings.

My problem is, I'm a 197-pound weakling!

This ad is from Superboy 86, cover-dated January, 1961.

Speaking of the Ending of Watchmen . . .

This image was generated on a Commodore 64 graphics program and was intended at the time to be a possible front page for the New Frontiersman that was never printed, because New York instead had bodies beyond our wildest imaginings.

What do you think?

Welcome to Kylie

If you put Julie and Kyle together, what do you get?

KYLIE, of course!

Kylie Jean Kramer, our second grandchild, was born on Friday at 2:30PM.  She was 21 inches long and 8lb, 6oz.

Yes, she's a big one, especially considering that Julie is about 5 foot three and about 105 lbs, normally.

Jazra is happy to be a big sister, and for right now our feelings are both tired and thankful.
