If a comedian can make you laugh, and make you love them, and stay out of the media controversy mill... they are worth noting as they pass. Don't know if anybody had any grievances with Tim Conway, but I didn't.

An unrivaled comedic genius. Most of todays comedians lack any of the imagination, creativity and talent that this man shared with our generation. :(
Sad news and tremendous loss. RIP Tim.

I asked my 8 year old grand niece what she likes to watch on the tube and she looked at me with a blank stare. What do they teach kids in school now anyway?

Now that I know chickens can lay blue eggs, white and brown ones are boring.

Woke up thinking about the expression, "Goody two shoes" so I looked up its origin. This led to the term, "Goody goody gumdrops" which made me wonder why expressions die out. Then I saw the expression, "By gog jolly custard" and realized that so many expressions come from England and they are really weird over there, so of course they die out.
