TV fans the world over mourned the passing of Larry Hagman, who succumbed after a long, hard-fought battle against cancer on Friday, November 23rd. Rarely does an actor get to create an iconic role in his or her career, whether in television or film, but Larry created two. From 1965 to 1970, he played the nice guy, easygoing Major Tony Nelson on the beloved sitcom I Dream of Jeannie. Then from 1978 to 1991, he did a complete about-face and gained TV immortality as the nasty oil baron John Ross (J.R.) Ewing on the soap opera Dallas. Both of these diverse roles made Larry popular with millions of TV fans around the globe.
* He had eclectic tastes. Larry lived life to the fullest. His many hobbies included collecting canes, hats, and flags. He was a devout art collector and also loved motorcycles, especially his beloved Harley. He also enjoyed skiing, fishing, sailing, backpacking, and touring around in his custom-designed motor home. In one of Hollywood's longest-ever marriages, Larry and his wife of 58 years, Maj, lived in a home in Ojai, California, which they called "Heaven."
* He was in the Air Force before he became Major Nelson. Yes, everyone knew him as Major Nelson on I Dream of Jeannie, but Larry had actually served four years in the U.S. Air Force (1952-1956). He spent most of his time in the service stationed in England, staging, performing in, and directing shows for his fellow servicemen.
* The ladies always liked Larry. While serving in England in the '50s, Larry dated a sexy young actress named Joan Collins. Thirty years later, in the 1980s, while Larry was the biggest star on TV as J.R. on Dallas, Joan Collins was to reign as TV's top female star as Alexis Carrington on another weekly nighttime soap opera, Dynasty.
* When asked about I Dream of Jeannie, Larry would always respond with his three pat answers. He said, "I always get asked the same three questions about I Dream of Jeannie, and the answers are:

If you like fudge, smokey meats and salted caramel then you'll love this caramel, bacon fudge -I say "salted caramel" because you know the bacon will add a nice salty flavor to the concoction.
While Jules Food doesn't have a recipe, that's only becase they say it is too easy to need one. They do have advice to make your own though.

This ivory netsuke--a small sculpture that serves as a purse--was made by Gyokkosai during the Nineteenth Century. It shows a woman playing playing a samisen, a monkey drinking sake and an animated skeleton holding a fan. The attention to detail is amazing, particularly on the ribs and fingers of the skeleton.

Rcrowley32 is an American living in Belfast with her husband and four children. Every week she takes a picture of their dog Bones dressed up in human clothes and puts it in her kids' lunches to surprise them. The top picture is the school uniform. The second picture was for the day after Thanksgiving, which is a regular school day in Ireland. Redditors are demanding that she now submit a new picture every Friday. Link

Many modern handguns come with rails for mounting accessories, including lights. This object, patented by S.P. Cottrell & Son, is an early attempt to provide both illumination and protection. It's a .22-caliber 7-shot revolver built onto a heavy flashlight. The trigger is folded along the bottom.

Before Thanksgiving weekend is over, you should take a minute to be thankful for awful cakes that make us laugh. Cake Wrecks has two, count 'em, two roundups of badly decorated Thanksgiving cakes. Most try to render the image of a turkey, but don't quite make it. I think that's what this cake is supposed to be, but it really reminds me of a snail. And how did they spell Thanksgiving? I'm not sure.
