Today in history, many influential people passed away into eternity.

1984 - Andy Kaufman, comedian (Latka-Taxi), dies of cancer at 35

1990 - Jim Henson, puppeteer (Sesame Street, Muppet Show), dies at 53

Probably you know the Youtube video “May feelings”. Young students of Universities of Madrid say reasons pray the holy rosary. (in Spanish, with english subtitles)
See it: http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=YxjjyXhO9EA
It is one of the most watched videos on Youtube in May.

I remember when the Muppets guy died. Does that make me old? Or am I old because I remember the Muppets?

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
