One of my favorite historians,David McCullough has written a new book"The American Spirit: Who We Are and What We Stand For".He has collected some of his important speeches which highlight what it means to be American. This should be interesting. Sue

I finished actor,William Daniels memoir"There I Go Again" a terrific book I learned a couple new things about him. He was a child performer with one of his younger sisters,Jackie,their mother,Irene was a typical'stage mother'.

He and his wife,actress, Bonnie Bartlett met at Northwestern,have been married for 65 yrs.

He still gets mail from fans about his role as "George Feeney' on ABC hit show 'Boy Meets World"

I recommend the book Sue

The book I'm about to read is"There I Go Again: How I Came to Be "Mr. Feeney,John Adams,Dr. Craig,KITT, and Many Others by actor, William Daniels.

He's one of my favorite TV actors,first saw him in movie"1776' '73 he played John Adams,most of the cast in movie version also did stage version. I loved him as "Dr Mark Craig',head heart surgeon on favorite  medical show'St Elsewhere" '82-'86.He co-starred as the high school principal, "Mr. Feeney" on ABC sitcom'Boy Meets World''93-'00.I wonder if the writers intended the name of the high school, to be named John Adams because of Daniel's movie role.,I  found it amusing nevertheless.
