In case you've been wondering why no updates in the last month and access to the message board has been inaccessable and various other peculiar happenings, about three weeks ago the company which hosts my site decided to move all the files to a new server and change their operating system. No advance warning was given and of course things did not progress uneventfully. Today is the first day I've been able to access my files.
Things are finally settling down but it ain't over yet

See you there

Singing legend Miss Peggy Lee, 81, passed away at her Bel Air home on Monday, January 21, 2002. Her daughter, Nicki Lee Foster, was by her side. The cause of death has preliminarily been determined as a myocardial infarction, a result of the stroke she suffered three years ago.

In addition to her daughter, Miss Lee is survived by her grandchildren David Foster, Holly Foster-Wells, and Michael Foster; and her great-grandchildren Teagan Foster, Caleb Foster and Carter Wells.

In the George Pal Puppetoon, "Jasper in a Jam," Charlie Barnett and Peggy Lee provide the music for a spooky, rainy night in which Jasper takes refuge in an old pawn shop. The proprietor is asleep... or something. The clock strikes 13... the female figurehead on a gilded harp comes to life, singing (in Peggy Lee's voice) "Old Man Mose is Dead"... With this introduction, everything in the shop comes to life in an animated Jazz frenzy... animal heads on the wall, totem poles, even the cigar indian, who (inaccurately) throws hachets at poor Jasper.
Peggy Lee also recorded "Land O' the Leal" which was intended to be the opening theme song to Pal's "The Time Machine."
