53 TOS Images for Star Trek’s 53rd Anniversary!

Yesterday, September 8th was the 53rd Anniversary of Star Trek, and aren’t we lucky to have had this happyplace in our lives? Wishing Happy Anniversary to the surviving cast of The Original Series, William Shatner, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Walter Koenig, and happy memories of our beloved other cast members, Leonard Nimoy, Deforest Kelley, James Doohan, Majel Barret, Grace Lee Whitney, and of course the creator, Gene Roddenberry. The dream of a better future lives on with Star Trek in all of it’s incarnations! May its vision of a peaceful and caring society truly live long and prosper!

One thing I loved about the original series is that even though not all characters had equal time, there were countless little moments where we’d see the human (or otherwise) nature of characters that would give us a peek into their personalities. Little quirks anyone could understand. In honor of 53 years of Star Trek, here are 53 moments of my favorite TOS episodes, 🙂

Also, more coverage of my visit to TreKonderoga in August coming this week!

Happy Hanukkah!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans, and I wish a peaceful blessed day to all the world. Please remember the victims of the awful fires in California, and be thankful for the brave firefighters who are risking their lives to contain the fire and save as many lives as possible.

Today we take time to reflect on the blessings in our lives, and how grateful we are for them.  Despite hard times, we do have so much to be thankful for, and the turkey is a bonus!

Bless you all as we head into this blessed Holiday season, and don’t sweat the small stuff.  Reflect on the little blessings and the love we have.  love, Therese 🙂

My Weekly Spock: Veteran Trekkers

As yesterday was Veteran’s Day (and today it was observed), it’s a good time to remember our Star Trek friends who served their country.  For Leonard, Gene, and DeForest, it was the United States. And for James Doohan, it was for Canada.

James was also a hero of D-Day, after killing two German snipers,  having been shot at 6 times; 4 in the leg, one in   the right hand, which cost him his middle finger, and one in the chest, but his life was saved by the silver cigarette case in his breast pocket, a gift from his brother.  (for once, it was lucky he was a smoker).

Thank you our Star Trek brothers in arms for your dedicated service during WWII and early 50’s.   We are honored and forever thankful. ❤
