A longstanding bit of British political black humor has it that "Guy Fawkes is the last man to have entered Parliament with honest intentions."

The Parliament of Canada is seated in Ottawa, Ontario, and Ontario is 415,600 square miles in size. That makes Ontario almost twice the size of Texas (268,600 sq mi) and significantly smaller than Alaska (665,400 sq mi).

Irish tenor Colm Wilkinsonm who sang the role of Che on the original concept album of Evita, and originated the role of Jean Valjean in the West End and Broadway productions of Les Miserables, relocated his family to Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1989, when he was offered the title role in the original Toronto production of The Phantom of the Opera playing at the Pantages Theatre (now Ed Mirvish Theatre). He has lived in Toronto ever since, and became a Canadian citizen in the early 2000s.

I saw Colm Wilkinson perform in Les Miserables in London in late 1985, and he was nothing short of awesome. He turned 75 on June 5 of this year.

The original French version of the musical Les Miserables premiered in Paris in 1980. The English-language adaptation ran in London from October 1985 to July 2019, making it the longest-running musical in the West End. It is also the second longest-running musical in the world after the original Off-Broadway run of The Fantasticks.

The British synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys first recorded their song West End Girls in late 1983 or early 1984, working with American producer Bobby Orlando. The original version was a minor dance hit, but after Pet Shop Boys cut their ties with Orlando in 1985, the duo re-recorded the song with producer Stephen Hague; the second recording became a #1 hit in both the US and the UK.

The three colors of the Orlando, Florida city flag are white, blue and yellow, depicting the Linton E. Allen Memorial Fountain. It was adopted just two years ago.

Orlando, Oklahoma is a small town (Pop. 201) in the north-central part of the state and about 50 miles north of Oklahoma City. It used to be called Cherokee, but the name was changed to Orlando when a post office was opened in 1889. Passenger train service through Orlando ceased after World War II ended, and construction of I-35 caused the town to lose most of its commercial highway traffic after 1964. Orlando is 3 miles west of I-35.

Although incumbent President Lyndon Baines Johnson, Democrat of Texas, overwhelmingly won election in his own right in 1964 (having succeeded to office upon the death of President John F. Kennedy the year before), that election marked the beginning of the crumbling of the "Solid South" in Democratic presidential politics, as Sen. Barry Goldwater, Republican of Arizona, carried Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina in addition to his home state.

Cher's hit song Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves, written by Bob Stone, contains themes of racism, statutory rape, teenage pregnancy and single mother hood. It starts with a 16 year old girl describing her life on the road with her mother and father, where her father picks up a boy just south of Mobile, Alabama and giving him a ride to Memphis, Tennessee. It ends with the boy and girl's child describing her life on the road with her mother and grandfather.

Even though she is 73 years old, Cher continues to perform. She recently announced that she will continue her current tour in 2020, performing in over 20 locations next Spring.

Cher's name contains only one of the vowels, an E. Bono Vox uses only the O, Adam Ant the A, Will Smith the I.

But damned if I can find a singer whose name contains only the U vowel.

Irish singer Bono's acutal name is Paul David Hewson. His stage name (originally Bono Vox, now usually simply Bono) is a play on the Latin term "Bonavox," meaning "good voice," which was the name of a hearing-aid store in Dublin.

"Bona nox! bist a rechta Ox," K. 561, is a song by Mozart in canon for four voices and with phrases for "good night" in Latin, Italian, French, English and German. It is often sung in expurgated versions, especially changing the last lines, in German:

scheiß ins Bett daß' kracht;
gute Nacht, schlaf fei g'sund
und reck' den Arsch zum Mund,


which translate as
Shit in your bed and make it burst;
Good night, sleep tight,
And stick your ass to your mouth.

Here's the Chorus Viennensis singing the unexpurgated version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVG2VDc6rD8

Curry refers a variety of dishes originating in the Indian subcontinent that use a complex combination of spices or herbs. Curry is believed to have originated in the Southern states of India, where leaves from the curry tree were used as one of the spices. Typically, the spices used may include turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger, and chili.

In British English, the term "ginger" is often used in reference to redheads; the term is seen by some as disparaging or insulting. Other terms which are sometimes used for red hair are "carrot top" and "carrot head," and, in Australia, "Blue/Bluey," "rufus," and "ranga" (an insulting term, short for "orangutan").

Actress Tina Louise, who played Ginger on Gilligan's Island, was born in 1934. She was 20 years old when she started playing the role of Ginger. She took the role after Jayne Mansfield turned it down, and she played it from 1964 to 1967. She did later work, including in the movie The Stepford Wives (1975) when she was 41. The web records her measurements as 35-22-36.

Tina Louise was 30 years old when she started on Gilligan's Island. She always complained that the show ruined her career, but she found plenty of work after the series ended.

I saw Tim Curry live in Sheridan's The School for Scandal in late 1985 in London, and he was awesome.

In play:

Ohio Gov. John Gilligan, a Democrat, served only a single term, 1971-75. His daughter, Kathleen Sebelius, later served as Governor of Kansas and United States Secretary of Health and Human Services. Gilligan and Sebelius are the only father and daughter ever to have both been elected American governors

Jayne Mansfield turned down the role of Ginger Grant. A couple speculated reasons for this are...

1. The role was clearly based on Marilyn Monroe, and Jayne did not like the comparison.
2. Her sexuality could not be constrained by TV.

Marilyn Monroe was to have done a nude scene in the unfinished Something's Gotta Give, but she died during production. A cobbled together version of the movie can be found online. The movie was later remade as Move Over Darling, with Doris Day. Obviously, no nude scene in this one.

Like Jayne Mansfield, Marilyn Monroe was also 5' 5" tall. Judy Garland was 4' 11" tall. Liz Taylor was 5' 2" tall. And Audrey Hepburn was tall, at 5' 7".

Compared to 40-21-36 for Jayne Mansfield, Marilyn was 36-23-35.



Uhh, yeah, so I guess I'm on a measurements kick right now...

Queen Elizabeth I is estimated to have been between 5'3" and 5'5" in height. In contrast, her cousin and rival Mary Queen of Scots was almost 6 feet tall. The two never met in person.

Mary, Queen of Scots, was widowed three times:

- Her first husband, Francis II, the King of France, died from disease.
- Her second husband, Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, was murdered.
- Her third husband, James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell, was suspected in the murder of Henry Stuart. He wed Mary after abducting her, and died in prison in Denmark.

Mary, Queen of Scots was the only surviving legitimate child of King James V of Scotland. She was born in 1542 and was just six days old when her father died and she acceded to the throne. She ruled until 1567, when she was forced to abdicate in favor of her one-year-old son. She spent over 18 years in custody before being beheaded in 1586.

Floyd Lawson was the somewhat absent-minded barber on the Andy Griffith Show. The actor most commonly associated with the role was Howard McNear, but the character was originally played by actor Walter Baldwin, in episode 12, "Stranger in Town". Baldwin portrayed Floyd for just one episode. From 1961 on, the role was played by McNear.

The final verse was of Paul Simon's Bridge over Troubled Waters was written about his then-wife Peggy Harper, who had noticed her first gray hairs ("Sail on, silver girl"). The line does not refer to a drug abuser's hypodermic needle, as is sometimes claimed. The verse was Art Garfunkel's idea, but Simon has never cared for it.

Bridge over Troubled Water, released in January, 1970, became Simon & Garfunkel's biggest hit single, and it is often considered their signature song. It was a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks, and it also topped the charts in the United Kingdom, Canada, France, and New Zealand. It was a top five hit in eight other countries as well, eventually selling over six million copies worldwide, making it among the best-selling singles. It became one of the most performed songs of the twentieth century, with over 50 artists, among them Elvis Presley and Aretha Franklin, covering the song. It was ranked number 48 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

It was composed by singer-songwriter Paul Simon, who felt that Art Garfunkel should sing the song solo, an invitation Garfunkel initially declined but later accepted.

The Capeman a musical by Paul Simon withbook and lyrics by Simon and Derek Walcott based on the life of convicted murderer Salvador Agrón, opened at the Marquis Theatre in 1998 to poor reviews and ran for 68 performances. A blend of doo-wop, gospel, and Latin music, it received Tony Award nominations for Best Original Score, Best Orchestrations and Best Scenic Design. It won none of them, and while Simon has 12 Grammy Awards, that's all of the EGOT one he has won.

Cape Fear is located on the coast of North Carolina. It was named during a 1585 expedition of Sir Richard Grenville. Some of the crew were afraid that they would wreck in the area, so they named the location Cape Fear. It is the fifth-oldest surviving English place name in the U.S.

Cape Fear is a 1962 thriller movie, which starred Robert Mitchum and featured Gregory Peck in his final film role. The movie was remade in 1991 and starred Robert De Niro and Nick Nolte.

Searched Bing for Gregory Peck, clicked the IMDb link, and no, this was far from his last film role. He even had a part in the remake of Cape Fear.

Searched Bing for Gregory Peck, clicked the IMDb link, and no, this was far from his last film role. He even had a part in the remake of Cape Fear.
Yep, my bad. The 1991 remake was Peck's last film role, according to Wiki.

In play: David Berger has served in the Gulf War, the War in Iraq, and the War in Afghanistan.

Wiki is wrong. IMDb says he had a few roles after that. Wiki's a good starting point, but never let that be the final authority.

Hamilton Burger was the name of the fictional Los Angeles County district attorney, and frequent judicial opponent to defense lawyer Perry Mason, in the novels, films, radio dramas, and television dramas featuring Mason. In the various Mason stories, Burger nearly always lost in court to Mason.

In the original Perry Mason television series (which ran from 1957 to 1966), the character of Burger was played by William Talman, while Mason was played by Raymond Burr. During that series, Burger defeated Mason on only two occasions.

Well, according to IMDb, Peck had 3 roles following the release of Cape Fear in 1991. Two were in made-for-TV movies, and one was in a TV miniseries.

IMDb also states 'The short answer is: if it's made for TV, it's a TV production; if it was made to be released in theaters, it's a theatrical film.' Thus, it can be argued that the remake of Cape Fear was indeed Peck's last film role.

In play: Also according to IMDb, Perry Mason lost the case in the episode entitled 'The Case of the Deadly Verdict'. Because she lied, his client is found guilty and sentenced to death. But, of course, Mason eventually finds the real killer.

The Mason–Dixon line, also called the Mason and Dixon line or Mason's and Dixon's line, was surveyed between 1763 and 1767 by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in the resolution of a border dispute involving Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware in Colonial America. It is still a demarcation line between four U.S. states, forming part of the borders of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia (part of Virginia until 1863). Later it became known informally as the border between the free (Northern) states and the slave (Southern) states.
