What do you remember best about ALEX KARRAS? 'One of the NFL's most feared defensive tackles on the Detroit Lions, played the dad on TV's Webster and my fave, Mongo in Blazing Saddles! Sadly dementia and kidney disease ended his life. He was 77.

Ofelia Pena McCain Does renovate=cleared the cob webs?
Jona Denz-Hamilton Ofelia Pena McCain LOL--the cobwebs...leaves...moldy crud...rust...caving ceilings...paint...carpets...seats...furniture...bathrooms out of code...and the spooky flickering neon marquee...
Marilyn Barranti Miss the old Campbell theater,The same era probably ! Oh, the memories !!!Ofelia Pena McCain Damn! It really needed a ton of TLC. I remember watching movies there as a kid. The Endersons owned it back then.
Martin Cheek Thanks Jona for getting the word out. As one of the clean-up crew for the Granada, I became an expert on taking old junk from the theater to the San Martin Transfer Station dump site in my old pickup truck. The work is worth it. People are gonna love getting into the Granada this week -- like seeing an old friend again.

Jona Denz-Hamilton Do you think that the Granada would ever run classic movies, like Palo Alto's Stanford Theater and the gorgeous California Theater downtown San Jose do?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is National Angel Food Cake Day. Would you dare make the Jell-O version? : ) How do you make YOURS irresistable?
