I just now heard on the news that Michael Jackson was found dead. I'm looking into it.

Wow Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcet both died today! May they both r.i.p.
I was a fan of both way back in the old days of the early 80s.

Here's the Michael Jackson story.

Regardless of what anyone feels about him, it's unexpected.

~Oh my God.........this is awful. I told Todd that this must've been what it felt like for my step-mom (whom I adore) when Elvis died. I just can't believe it. I just watched on VH1 the Jackson 5 Story........my heart goes out to his family & 3 beautiful children.

Michael Jackson passing is the main news story. Happened about 2:30 pm pdt. He was 50. same age as my husband. My heart goes out the members of his family.

Also to the family of Farrah Fawcett. She also passed away this morning, due to cancer. She was 62.
Don't take life too seriously, no one ever gets out alive.

The passing of Micheal Jackson is indeed a tragedy. It makes me very sad about Farrah Fawcett too. Two major icons from when I was a child are gone. It makes me feel old.

I hate to say it, because I thought they were both good people, but at least they are now completely free of the paparazzi, fame leaches, and gossip seekers. I hope they are at peace now.
Who owns the land? Only the land knows. We mortals are passersby, and our lives are but a brief moment in the great span of time and space. We are born, we live out our lives, and most of us do the best we can with it, but the wind is forever, and the rivers flow forever to the sea, and all the seasons of the weathers will come and go after we are gone. But the Earth endures, the Earth is eternal" - Earl Hamner

TV pitchman Billy Mays found dead at his home
Posted Image

Billy Mays, the loud, fast-talking pitchman who epitomized the infomercial spokesman, died Saturday at his home in Tampa. Mays, who would have turned 51 on July 20, was found by his wife. Police do not suspect foul play.
However, Mays was aboard Saturday's U.S. Airways Flight 1241 flying from Philadelphia, which suffered a rough landing when its front tire blew out. He told a Tampa TV station that he was struck in the head during the incident. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Dressed in a trademark blue shirt and khaki pants, the husky, bearded Mays had been among the best-known infomercial hucksters on TV for more than two decades, pitching cleaning products, wonder tools and other "as seen on TV" items that eventually made their way into retail stores.

Mays began his sales career selling portable washing machines on the Atlantic City boardwalk after graduating from high school in 1977, beginning a career that would take him across the country, where he pitched products at state fairs, conventions and home and garden shows.

It was at a Pittsburgh home show in 1993 that Mays would jumpstart his career. There, he met Max Appel, founder of Orange Glo cleaning products. Mays began promoting OxiClean and other Orange Glo products on the Home Shopping Network, and sales took off. Mays continued to hawk OxiClean after the company was sold to consumer products giant Dwight and Church. But his showmanship lent itself to scores of other infomercial products that provided the blue-collar Mays a lavish lifestyle.

Another sad note. Actor/Comedian Fred Travalena has also passed yesterday June 28, 2009. He has been battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma for the past several years. He was 66 years of age.

Here's his website http://www.fredtrava...om/index01.html

Wow, we are just losing celebrities left and right lately. I really liked Fred Travalena. I always thought he was a better impressionist than Rich Little, and that is saying something!!
