Just wanted to bring up three items that just surfaced in the last couple of days:

1. Art Clokey (1921-2010)

While the name Art Clokey may not be immediately familiar to most tv watchers, he was the creator and inspiration behind "Gumby" a Clay-animation series that enjoyed several incarnations between 1956 and 1988 on network and syndicated tv..Clokey passed away at the age of 88. He also created "Davey and Goliath" in 1963 for the Lutheran Church..

2. Great day yesterday on the Blog:

According to the application Sitemeter, we had 219 visitors yesterday with 407 page views..Which is kind of unusual to me because there didnt seem to be a special reason for it..Normally there is a reason I can pinpoint for a spike in visitors, but not this time.. We usually average between 100-140 visitors a day..

Thanks to everyone for your continued support..

3. "Cleveland Classic Media" on Facebook

Ive decided within the next few days, to create a Cleveland Classic Media "Fan/Friend Page" on Facebook. What I may do here is repurpose some ads and pictures used earlier in Cleveland Classic Media and Create some "new" content especially for Facebook, as well as announce Blog Updates and anything else that may come up..(YouTube, DailyMotion Content, etc.)I may also have other Facebook Folks contribute material as well..
Everyone take care and have a great weekend..
