I wouldn't want to ask people to just give me money cause they like my website, but do please take a quick look at Barger's Boutique. You might find yourself a little something-something for 2 or 3 bucks that you just can't resist! Any of the round images you find around MoreThings will get you to an Amazon page to buy my stuff and help ol' Al keep the lights on.
To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

Why I Am Bewitched by Endora Bewitched first aired when I was about a year old, and has been a fixture in my whole lifetime. But as I get older I find that I'm distinctly a little turned on by the Endora character. I know she's the "evil mother in law" and all. But no, you don't understand - my mother in law really IS a witch.
Also, Endora is literally a thousand years old. Agnes Moorehead was 63 years old playing her. So I recognize that young Samantha is more tender young flesh.
But I put my finger on it recently watching the second episode of the series, "Be It Ever So Mortgaged" in which the Stevens contemplate buying the home that would become the basic setting for the rest of the series. Endora was less than impressed with the prospect of suburban home ownership.
SAMANTHA: All young married people dream of owning their own home.
it's fine for them Samantha, but not for us. We're quicksilver, a fleeting shadow. A distant sound. Our home has no boundaries beyond which we cannot pass. We live in music, in a flash of color. We live on wind and the sparkle of a star.
And you want to trade it all for a quarter of an acre of crabgrass.
That's sexy talk, right there. That's some kind of adventurous, deeply romantic spirit - and a dangerously sharp wit. By the time I'm getting to be 63, I bet Endora's going to be looking like the hottest thing around.
