As the great entertainer Dick Van Dyke turns 90, he was pleasantly surprised by a Mary Poppin’s themed flash mob. He even sang along and joined them to lead a song. Heartwarming!
I admit to a seasonal addiction to Christmas Pudding but, even I would have trouble finishing off Heston Blumenthal’s fantastical pudd! This all happened a few years ago now, but I hadn’t heard of it before the show aired on TV recently.
You can view the 2012 SWNS report here:Giant Christmas Pudding
The trailer for Heston’s Fantastical Feasts shows a quick look at some of his other supersized creations:
A friend, of my own vintage, reminded me of this great old show.
I am often humming this as I bumble through my efforts in my own house and garden. Laughably similar sometimes.
A truly disrespectful look at my generation. At least we can still laugh at ourselves!
I always like to find the originator of media that I add here. However, it appears that the original video has been removed or archived as links to it do not work. I will happily stand corrected if anyone can give me a working link to the original upload of this work. At least this uploader has given Walt Handelsman full credit.
I have found a website for Walt Handelsman at http://www.walthandelsman.com/animations/ and found an index of his animations there. (There are lots more laughs on all sorts of subjects) However, the link listed there appears to be to Newsday weblog and does not work. The original video was apparently uploaded in 2007 as part of an Newsday editorial by Walt Handelsman.
PS I did not do the things attributed to my age group in the video – then or now, but I am on the slippery slope which aging is and I’m just trying to enjoy the ride.
With a 40km range and top speed of 20 km/h this invention looks set to give extra freedom and independence.
See: http://riomobility.com/en/ for variations and further information. Apparently, they are the developers of this equipment.
The video was uploaded by rollickbiz, who import this type of equipment. They are an European company, I believe. Their website is http://www.rollick.biz
I applaud the inventor and thank rollickbiz for helping us all to find out about it.
