the unruly factor

This last Friday found me at Fox TV making an appearance on "American Icons" a segment of the "The O'Reilly Factor". The interview took place by satellite and will be in the last 10 minutes of his Friday show. I think it will air on either the 23rd or the 30th of this month.They will show lots of clips and I am looking forward to what they dig up from Danny Thomas, Sound of Music and Lost In Space.

Speaking of Lost In Space...Last week Kevin Burns threw a birthday remembrance with the Lost In Space group to celebrate the birthday of the late Gertrude Harris, Jonathan Harris' wife. A year before we had all celebrated her special day with a lovely dinner, and we decided to remember her on her actual birthday this year...same time, same place. I will miss her lovely, vibrant personality, she was a doll.


Here's Kevin Burns with Bill Mumy, his son Seth and his daughter Liliana.
And the lovely Marta Kristen (Judy on Lost In Space) with her husband Kevin Kane.


And here is Gertrude with Kevin Burns at her Birthday Party in 2006.

I realized I had promised ages ago that I would blog my freshly painted dining room once it was finished.



So come on in...

I used Modern Masters 'Champagne' paint on the walls. This paint is infused with real minerals which reflects light in the most amazing way. During the day this room it's one color, but a mystical look takes over this room at night and by candlelight it is very flattering.




The floor is a multi colored slate, framed with tiles made from a series of photographs of flowers from my 'Picture Poetry' collection.




This large painting in my dining room is by artist Nila Barja...I just love the colors.
And for those of you who inquired...I found Coco Cellini hiding in my cupboard...
