Pamela Low, created flavor for Cap'n Crunch, dies at 79
June 4, 2007

NEW LONDON, N.H. --Pamela Low, who was credited with developing the flavored coating for Cap'n Crunch cereal, has died, her brother said. She was 79.

http://www.boston.com/news/local/new_hampshire/articles/2007/06/04/pamela_low_created_flavor_for_capn_crunch_dies_at_79/




Lets all remember her with a big batch of Planet Hollywood's Famous Capt n Crunch Chicken
Ingredients:
2 cups Captain Crunch Cereal
1 1/2 cup Corn flakes
1 Egg
1 cup Milk
1 cup All purpose flour
1 teaspoon Onion powder
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Black pepper
2 pounds Chicken breast cut in 1-oz. tenders
11 Vegetable oil for frying


Directions:

Coarsely grind or crush the two cereals and set aside. Beat the egg with milk and set aside. Stir together the flour, onion and garlic powders and black pepper. Set this aside also. Dip the chicken pieces into the seasoned flour. Move around to coat well, then shake off the excess flour. Dip into the egg wash, coating well, then dip into the cereal mixture, coating well. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet to 325 degrees. Drop coated chicken tenders carefully into the hot oil and cook until golden brown and fully cooked, 3 to 5 minutes depending on size. Drain and serve immediately with Creole mustard sauce.

Adios, Mr. Wizard.


LOS ANGELES — Don Herbert, who as television's "Mr. Wizard" introduced generations of young viewers to the joys of science, died Tuesday. He was 89. Herbert, who had bone cancer, died at his suburban Bell Canyon home, said his son-in-law, Tom Nikosey.

"He really taught kids how to use the thinking skills of a scientist," said former colleague Steve Jacobs. He worked with Herbert on a 1980s show that echoed the original 1950s "Watch Mr. Wizard" series, which became a fond baby boomer memory.

In "Watch Mr. Wizard," which was produced from 1951 to 1964 and received a Peabody Award in 1954, Herbert turned TV into an entertaining classroom. On a simple, workshop-like set, he demonstrated experiments using household items.

"He modeled how to predict and measure and analyze. ... The show today might seem slow but it was in-depth and forced you to think along," Jacobs said. "You were learning about the forces of nature."

Herbert encouraged children to duplicate experiments at home, said Jacobs, who recounted serving as a behind-the-scenes "science sidekick" to Herbert on the '80s "Mr. Wizard's World" that aired on the Nickelodeon channel.

When Jacobs would reach for beakers and flasks, Herbert would remind him that science didn't require special tools.

"'You could use a mayonnaise jar for that,'" Jacobs recalled being chided by Herbert. "He tried to bust the image of scientists and that science wasn't just for special people and places."

Herbert's place in TV history was acknowledged by later stars. When "Late Night with David Letterman" debuted in 1982, Herbert was among the first-night guests.

Born in Waconia, Minn., Herbert was a 1940 graduate of LaCrosse State Teachers College and served as a U.S. Army Air Corps pilot during World War II. He worked as an actor, model and radio writer before starting "Watch Mr. Wizard" in Chicago on NBC.

The show moved to New York after several years.

He is survived by six children and stepchildren and by his second wife, Norma, his son-in-law said. A private funeral service was planned.

Bill Pinkney, Last Surviving, Original Drifter, Dead at 81

(Pappy's editorial comment: Depending on how you count, THIRTY men comprised the Drifters during their chart history. The group "survived" having ALL the members fired and replaced by what was essentially the Five Crowns to become the Ben E. King Drifters)

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Bill Pinkney, the last survivor of the original members of the musical group The Drifters, has died. He was 81.

Pinkney was found dead Wednesday at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort, Daytona Beach Police spokesman Jimmie Flynt said. The death was not considered suspicious, he said.

Pinkney was scheduled to perform for U.S. Independence Day festivities there.

The Drifters, whose hits include "Under the Boardwalk," "Up on the Roof," and "Save the Last Dance For Me," still performed Wednesday night. An announcement about Pinkney's death was made after the show, said the group's publicist, Donnie Lowery.

Pinkney, born in Dalzell, S.C., was not with The Drifters when they recorded their biggest hits. He left in the band in 1958 because of an argument over cash. His distinctive bass voice can be heard on the group's version of the holiday classic "White Christmas."

Even though he left the group, Pinkney didn't let go of The Drifters' name. He fought for laws allowing performers or bands to claim an affiliation with a classic group like The Drifters or The Coasters only if at least one member recorded with the original group.

The Drifters were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.

Pinkney was a World War II veteran and pitched for the New York Blue Sox of the Negro Baseball League in the late 1940s and early '50s.

Tammy Faye Messner, who earlier this week took her battle with cancer public, died Saturday 7/21/07. She was 65.

Messner appeared on "Larry King Live" Thursday to talk about her inoperable cancer. She told King that she trusts God with her life.

"I talk to God every single day, and I say, `God, my life is in your hands, and I trust you with me,"' the former televangelist said.


It was King who broke the news of Messner's death Saturday.

During the Thursday interview, Messner appeared emaciated and spoke in a raspy voice. She said she had been having trouble keeping food down and weighed only 65 pounds.

She was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1996 and announced in 2004 that the disease had spread to her lungs.

Messner divorced televangelist Jim Bakker in 1992, while he was serving a sentence for financial fraud. The couple had founded a Christian retreat in Fort Mill, S.C., and built a multimillion-dollar evangelism empire.

Messner and her husband Joe lived in Kansas City, Mo. at the time of her death. She married Joe Messner after divorcing preacher Jim Bakker. The couple moved from Charlotte, N.C., built what she called her "dream home" in Kansas City.

Messner stopped receiving cancer treatments in May and had undergone hospice care in her home since then.

I remember Tammy Faye from the PTL Club back in the 80's. I usually let the religious shows fly right by when channel surfing, but those eyelashes made me do a double take & I stuck around to watch. I got such a kick out of Tammy it was almost worth putting up with all those other dopes on the show.

At the time I suspected she'd taken a few happy pills before the cameras started rolling & it turns out that was the case. Nevertheless, unlike 99% of the TV preachers, she always struck me as being 100% genuine.

One day they were having a panel discussion on how to keep the romance in your marriage. Tammy started telling everyone about the time when she & Jim were in college (BEFORE they were married) and Jim stopped the elevator between floors. We never got to hear the details because Jim turned white as a sheet and started shushing her and practically had to physically restrain her to get her to stop talking.

I'm going to miss her. I don't think the dear old girl had a phony bone in her body.

Football Hall Of Fame Coach Bill Walsh dies at age 75. He had been battling leukemia for at least the past three years. Not only was he an outstanding coach that basically invented the entire "West Coast Offense", but he was one hell of a great human being. In a statement by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell - "He taught all of us not only about football but also about life and how it takes teamwork for any of us to succeed as individuals." Rest in peace on that great grid-iron in the sky, Bill.
