I just notice that I now have 100 followers by e-mail! If you told me a year ago that my silly little blog would have so many subscribers, I would have laughed it off! Thank you to all of e-mail subscribers and to my 40+ Facebook followers too!
I’m 52 today! And I’d like to take this time to thank all my readers and subscribers. If I can bring a little joy and levity into your lives, that’s all I ever hope for! Thanks for your time and patronage, Therese
George Takei turns 76 tomorrow! (April 20th) Oh Myyyy! I love George’s activism, humor, and compassion for the human race. (Not to mention his voice!) I have an audio recording of George promoting the first Star Trek movie back in 1979 when he visited our local community college here. When I figure out how to post it here I will!
A very happy birthday, George! Thanks for being a fine actor and a wonderful human being! -Love and Blessings, Therese
I just wanted to take a moment to reflect and pray for all of the victims of the bombings at the Boston Marathon today. I’m speechless. Pray for peace here and in the whole world.
Sad to see that Annette Funicello passed away Monday from complications from MS. Now I admit, her highly nasal voice was sometimes annoying, but you couldn’t help but love her! She and Hayley Mills are my two favorite Disney stars. Rest in peace Annette, and I hope you’re surfing free in heaven!

Since Last Friday was William Shatner’s Birthday, and tomorrow is Leonard Nimoy’s Birthday, it’s a good time to reflect on the nearly 50-year old friendship between these two actors. Hard to believe they weren’t always this chummy, but nice to know that the real life counterparts of Kirk and Spock are just as close as their fictional characters. When a dying Spock said to Kirk in ST:II “I have been and always will be your friend” it was from the heart. Their off screen friendship made their on-screen chemistry all the more believable; a joy we’ve had for nearly a 1/2 century. Happy Birthday, Guys!

I have to confess, TrekkerScrapbook is often Spock/Nimoy-Centric. But on a day like this one has to recall the joy and blessing of William Shatner! What a wonderful, funny, intense, caring, delightful and damned sexy actor! Man, Talk about Captain CHARMING! That naughty smirk, that dash of hair across his brow, and those HAZEL EYES!!!! Lord have Mercy. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore!
Honestly, can you imagine how different (and probably a LOT less fun) the Original Star Trek may have been WITHOUT him? I know I’ve made fun of Kirk’s character a lot here, but I’ve always loved Bill Shatner! I’ve included some of his funniest, sexiest, and most dramatic moments here. What a treasure. He’ll always be the Captain of Our Hearts!
A Very, Very Happy 82nd Birthday Bill! Just for you, a very special (and long overdue) “Kirk Kollage” !
With Love and Blessings from trekkerscrapbook.com!
