Time for Talk

Time for Talk Schedule May 11 - 15, 2015

New Wave Cable Channel 2 7:00 PM

This week's schedule of programs marks not only the end of a regular season but also the end of Talk's programming. Talk has been on the cable for 40 years as a community service. So it's time to retire. Goodbye, and the best to everyone. It has been a great and enjoyable experience.-- ROSEMARY

Monday Rosemary Eats a Spider

Cultures are quite different throughout the world. But there is one cultural characteristic that is very strange but very common among Asian peoples "they like to eat spiders" and other insects. Basically, the tarantula is just another food item. It can be surmised that the practice came into being because of famine or food scarcity. Tonight, Rosemary has encouraged one of her English students in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to bring some insects to class to demonstrate how to eat these creatures. Yes, Rosemary does take a bite.

Tuesday Back To 1986 -- Pie Throw -- BBQ Cook-off

It's always enjoyable to go back a few years to watch the antics of people having fun. In this case, a pie throw is hilarious, but watching prominent citizens as they get washed off after the pie throw mess is more fun. The BBQ CookOff that year was very informative.

Wednesday Neil Bergman's Bees -- Visit to His Apiary

The date is 1985. Talk made a visit to the Apiary of Neil Bergman. Neil carried Rosemary high as he donned her with a hat, hood and coveralls to protect her from the stings. Past the point of no return, she and the cameraman made some beautiful closeups of the bee's activities. Neil handles the bees barehanded as if they pose no threat. "Don't you ever get stung?" Rosemary asked. "Very rarely," Neil replied. "The bees do not like fast movement," he warned. The cameraman quickly found this to be true as he tried to brush a bee from his face. Too late!! Pow!! Right in the eyelid! Have fun with Neil in this valuable segment from 1985

Thursday Saga Of The Duck Box

What happened in Rosemary's back yard last year is pretty interesting. It all started with an attempt to repair a duck box hanging on the old oak tree. Russ tried to take the box down, but instead was deterred by something inside. How this "thing" was removed is a funny episode. But that isn't all. Later when the ducks were busy making a nest, something else got into the box. It is all very laughable. Don't fail to see, "The Saga of the Duck Box.

Friday Excerpts from Time for Talk 1975 -- 1983

Clara Donaldson is now deceased, but she tells stories about Kennett's early days you will want to hear. We will visit the Old Opera House upstairs with all the graffiti from the early 1900's. Paul Slicer is how deceased but he will fill us in on some tidbits of his early 1900 experiences in Kennett. How about a shot of Brydon Ross? Our departed friend is right here with us on this video. Dr. George Dunmire makes us smile with stories of his career. And then, from 1983, Rosemary talks with Otis Ward and Roger Montgomery about improvements that were then being made on Floyd Street.
