Christmas sanity break: 5 year-old Claire signs her Christmas concert for her deaf parents!


The only thing cuter than kindergartners singing in a holiday concert is this video of five-year-old Claire Koch going into full ASL-mode so that her hearing-impaired parents can fully enjoy her class’s holiday show.  (I especially love the “Santa is his Name-O”)  With that expressive face, she’s made for the stage – what a ham!

Jean Stapleton, RIP


Edith Bunker checks out Playgirl Magazine!

I remember, back when I was in elementary school, how our entire family would watch “All in the Family” every Sunday night together.  The fact that my grandma – an active member of the South Dakota republican party – proclaimed it her favorite show, is a true testament to its wide appeal (drawing up to 50 million viewers each week!). 

So with Jean Stapleton’s unfortunate passing, I did some YouTube searching, and found some fun (and touching) videos, including a clip of her in a musical – with Bernadette Peters and Tony Randall! Who knew?
