Was just watching "That 70's Show" tonight. Near the end of the show,
Eric Foreman turns up in a t-shirt with "Slot and Wing Hobbies,
Champaign, Ill." on it...
Used to frequent that store while I was going to the U of I...was a gas
to see thier logo again. I'm hoping the shop's still there, and thriving.

LOL...I think it's one of those generic national commercials, which ends
with local voice/pic overs. You know, just like when you see an ad from
Alex Trebek saying "Watch jeopardy tonight on NBC channel Detroit 4."
Just got the latest CD by Steely Dan, "Everything Must Go". I was
listening to it for the first time and I heard a line in the song
"Things I Miss the Most" that I had to replay several times to before

plot line has the main character takes up plastic modeling to get his
mind off of sex. Some RMSers may not realize that these are separate

It was an 80's era movie that starred Martin Short who was trying to impress
his date. I forget the actress' name (Anette ?), but she played the ex-wife of
Don Johnson on the Nash Bridges TV show. Paul Glasser played the buddy of Matin
Short who let him borrow his apartment for the night, which included the
trashing of a Monogram B-29.

I was just watching an episode of the X-Files from season 2, and one
scene of the suspects old room had a Monogram B-17 and another (can't
remember it right now) sitting on a dresser..............thought it
