Wasn't that a tv show in the late 50s, "The Protectors." I think it wa about a company that make conundrums.

Am I the only one that doesn't understand? What about princess Wilhelmina? The one of the Netherlands?
Oh, Desi, thank you, thank you. And I thought I was the only one who didn't understand. The only thing that came through with any clarity was the quote from "Alice's Restaurant"--glad you posted that, Johnny; it has always been one of my favorites.
Sorry, I was responding to Johnny's Churchill post with a similar one from the movie Galaxy Quest. (If you haven't seen it, it's a spoof of Star Trek)

Don't let that stop you from posting a comment. I never let it stop me.
Not a clue! Like Marian-NYC, I will happily add to the confusion, though.

Wilhelmina Hemmingway definitely has some Vogon blood.
Saw the movie yesterday....I liked a lot about it but it lacked the charm of the original
disliked the Guide graphics....originals far far superior in my opinion
"Original" graphics. Good one!
I liked the scene with Princess W. and the Onion.
The one where she cries?
must be that Sea of Tears song again
Come with me
to the sea

I wanna tell you
