Why Robin Roberts Almost Turned Down a 2012 President Obama Interview -  YouTube

‘Make your mess your message,’  Momma liked to say.  And I did.”   —   Robin Roberts

(Not sure that I get this one!  This is the first of her quotes to be used as a Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting them at least.  So, we welcome Robin Roberts to the Cryptoquote Club today!  My sister and I saw her at a taping of “The View” many years ago, and got a copy of a book that she wrote.  I might even still have it.  Be well and do good, friends.)      YUR

Downton Abbey': Lady Mary Was a Deceptively Revolutionary Leading Lady |  Decider

(Mary sounds like a real sweetheart!  I’ll never get why so many Americans eat up all this British royalty guff.  It’s all elitist nonsense, as far as I’m concerned.  But this is an amusing quote!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Experiences of the Soul: On William Somerset Maugham's Far Eastern Writings

A good hairdresser can express every mood and every passion of the human heart.”   —   W. Somerset Maugham

(Is this a line from one of the female characters from one of his books?  It’s a little strange coming from a man, even a gay man, from this time period at least.  But . . . who am I to judge?!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life.”   —   Michael Palin

(I guess his travel documentaries play primarily in England.  But he’ll always be remembered for all his great work with Monty Python’s Flying Circus!  A great comedic talent.  This would appear to be the first of his quotes to be used for a Cryptoquote, so we welcome Michael to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Top 5 George Eliot Books Ranked | Book AnalysisDelicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”   —   George Eliot

(Kind of a reverse Boy named Sue!  She was born Mary Ann Evans.  Like some other women writers of the time she felt that a man’s name would help her to be taken more seriously.  I’m sure that it helped, as she is known for a number of 19th Century classics.  Strange to read of the open marriages back then!  It seems that many poets/authors had a strong affinity for autumn!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Ron Swanson is deeply offended that Donald Trump went into politics |  Mashable

There’s only one thing I hate more than lying:  skim milk, which is water that’s lying about being milk.”   —   Ron Swanson, “Parks and Recreation”

(Gotta love Nick Offerman’s character!  People who say that they enjoy skim milk are suffering from a form of Stockholm Syndrome!  Ooh, ooh!  I wonder what he thinks of cottage cheese???  And, I bet there hasn’t been a diet soda made that he’ll drink!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

See ABC's 1980 Broadcast on John Lennon's Death - ABC News

Count your age by friends, not years, your life by smiles, not tears.”   —   John Lennon

(It’s hard to believe that John Lennon would now be 82 years old, had he not been shot and killed outside The Dakota, where he and Yoko Ono lived with their son Sean.  I lived across the street and about five buildings down from The Dakota back in December of 1980.  I didn’t hear the shots.  And sirens are a daily thing when you live in Manhattan.  But, at around 2:00 AM I was awakened by the sound of people singing “Give Peace a Chance” and “Imagine”.  I looked out my window, down the block, and saw the crowd of people, but I couldn’t imagine what was going on.  Later that morning, getting ready for work, I heard on the radio that John had been shot and killed.  In a bit of disbelief, I had to make my way through the crowd of mourners to get to my subway.  It’s one of the most memorable recollections of my life.  Some things always stay with you.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
