Jim Henson (September 24, 1936 – May 16, 1990), creator of The Muppets.

Gratitude statement: I'm thankful for creative people.


  1. you know, if anyone but the muppets covered this song, it would have been sacrilege, but freddie would have loved it and so do i.

    it's hard to believe Jim and Freddie have been gone for almost twenty years. creative forces both.

  2. Need sleep? Here's a solution you might try. Go to the beach (it must be a sunny and warm day), set up your lounge chair on a fairly deserted section, settle in and let the sun shine on you while you concentrate on the sounds of the water, bird sounds, wind sounds. Close your eyes. If you do not sleep at least you will rest your mind and that might make you feel rested.
    I used this method on my sons when they were babes and were either teething or had diaper rash or some other upset. It almost always worked.

  3. Sounds great...I love the beach but I'll have to remember to set the chair far enough back, so I won't drown when the tide comes in. People would swear I did that on purpose.

  4. Jnuts, the good always die young and that's why we are going to live to be a very old codger and codgerette.
