The Latest From Everything Lucy Website: Lucy-Desi Center Increases Efforts for Outreach Mission: Observer - At its annual meeting recently, the board of directors of the Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Center took steps in moving forward with fulfilling the center’s mission through expanding its outreach and education programs. In announcing the Lucy-Desi Center’s plans, President Charles Edward Fagan noted, ‘Fulfilling our mission to enrich the world through the healing powers of love and laughter is the best kind of expression of Lucille Ball’s and Desi Arnaz’s characters, their contributions, and their memory. While recognizing the Center’s fine efforts in the past in education and outreach, the board’s direction is changing in subtle but important ways to engage in specific projects related to the healing power of laughter.’ The board made a commitment to quadruple the center’s outreach efforts by approving the addition of two new positions, outreach associate and development coordinator. Both will work with the center’s education/outreach coordinator to expand and fund programming in health care facilities, hospitals and nursing homes, as well as other areas. Plans are also under way for a Klown Kollege, greater cooperation with the Arts Council for Chautauqua County, continuing work with students and teachers, Scouts, the Hispanic community, and re-establishing the Lucille Ball Scholarship at Jamestown Community College through an endowment at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. These represent major steps for the center and indicate an increasing focus on the healing power of laughterâ€, posted this date in 2008.

Ok, first date, what the heck is that? Emmy awards telecast in color from Desilu Studios??? The show was divided into east and west coast, yes, but they would have this gigantic celebrity audience for the Emmys and were never broadcast from Desilu. And it was in Burbank? Desilu Gower, and the old General Service (Desilu Cahuenga)one were in Hollywood, only the Culver City one was way out of town, but not in Burbank i'm pretty sure. And the Emmys were broadcast in March that year? When the season wasn't even over?

March 22nd, Lucy did not get safe harbor from Lew Wasserman when The Lucy Show became Here's Lucy but a few years later when she escaped the indifference shown her on the Paramount lot and was treated like a Queen at Universal, her office there filled with Chippendale antiques as Mr Wasserman, then known as the most powerful man in Hollywood treated her well as he respected her dearly.

Last item from March 22nd, Carol Plus Two was a SPECIAL, one hour, not a TV movie. It also starred Zero Mostel, who had worked with Lucy on Dubarry was a lady, Lucy and Zero were the PLUS TWO along with Carol, it served as Carol Burnett's PILOT for her long running variety show on which Lucy guested a few times.

Love the things one finds out reading your great Chronology. Both Desi and Edie died in March. So many stars who worked with either Lucy or Desi then worked with either of their kids. When the star is deceased and you mention their date of birth, why not have the whole thin, Ross Martin, for example, star of Wild Wild West and a dear Lucy friend, you mention his birth but i know we were all shocked when he died so young, do you know the year, if not, i'll just go google him.

You've given me AT LEAST another day's work, and I LOVE it! I will correct errors; add to those things you've suggested, and well, the part about the births and deaths entries; if I put everything in on the deaths as I've done on the births, this damn thin' would be 900 pages! Just TRUST ME (you can, by the way) - but, I take ALL suggestions to heart; so, let's see what I can 'fix' today....

OMG YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, this is perfect, so so much better. But you shouldn't have gone to all that trouble, unless the end product is gonna be like this, then this is just perfect.

 

I believe I stated, in another post; when I copy and paste from my original 'product', it comes over to this venue, without the spacing; and each week I add, I go in an edit these long posts, to make reading easier; plus, take out some 'stuff' which, should anyone think of copying and get the jump on me, will have to research, as I did, some of the 'stuff' which you won't see here....until publication, at least - then, it will be 'protected' by copyright privileges. Until then, I am leaving myself 'wide-open' for copycats!!!! I shudder to think what court action might ensue; as I've asked those with me in the beginning weeks of work, we will march in, all carrying a box of hand-written material, etc, with which I began, and have saved - to date, there are about 15 banker boxes chock full of stuff I've turned into whatever THIS is going to be. I should add each box weighs about 50 lbs!!!!

 

While moving this past spring, all that 'stuff' I moved myself, I did some real nerve damage to myself; but, it HAD TO BE WITH ME....just in case we need to make a case - I know, this is more than you needed to know....but, I was warned in the beginning who would LOVE to get his hands on my work; put his name on it; and publish it (they tried, too, in early 2007....failed)

 

Who KNOWS what the publisher will eventually DO WITH THIS thin'; but, it DOES have entries separated; DOES have first words highlighted, (perhaps, I'll suggest to publisher the defining paragraph will have first identifying words of each paragraph in a larger TYPE;) etc., and I'll just trust they are the professionals, and will make my WORK pretty - that, we will have to WAIT FOR....

 

On with the editing....

 

Love, JK

Now you see what i mean, that friggin bastard would steal anything of Lucy's or about Lucy, so glad you are protecting yourself from thieves like HIM. I thought you were wiping these things out after they'd been UP a while, you should, so i'm happy you are editing them, you went to so much work, why hand it over to thieves, lazy untalented and very opportunistic thieves. :angry::angry::angry: I only started commenting on these recently because i want to encourage others to read every line and when i come up with something that doesn't seem KOSHER, then i just have to mention it like the first one i listed up there, there are so many mistakes on the internet and in books about Lucy, i've made quite a few myself, until someone pointed out to me where i erred and sometimes the memory fades with time, after all, these things happened many decades ago, so you and I might have lived through some of them but it was such a different time, more laid back and internet free.

Now you've made me curious, Lucy would have hated WHAT idea, article in 2002?

 

This 'entry' is merely a reference ONLY from Kanfer's 'Ball of Fire' - I had to look - some of his references refer to page numbers in the book - this one, however, didn't....sorry.

 

If you have, however, some WAY of getting into the New York Post archives, perhaps 'WE' can discover the article. Until then, it stands as just one more article written about our girl.

Hoping, then, you can appreciate how much I APPRECIATE your assistance with my editing process; you folks are SO MUCH more educated about Lucille, I am thoroughly LOVING learning about her, through you, and your fan base.... We're all in this together, however. so, let's have at it; keep your comments coming. It keeps me HONEST in my intention to be as accurate as I can be. Some dates are SOLID; some are shaky, I know; but, I want it to be as correct as I can. Thanks again, ALL!!!! I Love you....JK

Ok, so what was the story behind that weird one saying the Emmys were broadcast from Desilu studios??? That could never have really happened, the Emmys with a NY and LA settings at teh same time had to be in a huge hall or hotel so the glittering celebrity audience could sit in style collecting their statuettes. I do know that Desi hosted one year but i just do not get that Burbank reference.

Thanks for reminding me about Wild, Wild West - one of my favorites as a child; watched it faithfully; loved Ross in it, too. I'm going to put that on his birth date, as well as your information about being a good friend of Lucille - was he friends with Desi, as well? Details about that, if you will. I didn't find anything about that in my researching. Of course, much comes from IMDb; which gives little 'personal' stuff. Perhaps, if this thing GOES, the Volume II can be filled in some with additional informational bits....

This one I still have to find an hour or so to research; yesterday was 'filled' with 'other' errands, etc., so, my usual daily 7 or 8 hours of 'dedication' to Lucille and Company, had to take the back seat. I'll get to it....

No, just friends with Lucy and gary. They were often pictured together in fan magazines, same kind f friendship she had with Dick Van Patten of Eight is Enough and his wife and three boys. the boys played tennis with Desi jr. Desi jr used to play in these celebrity tournaments, that was talked about on The Merv Griffin Show MAME interview. Of course Dick's sister, actress Joyce Van Patten was in Mame with Lucy.

I've 're-arranged' 3/16, at the Emmys; it certainly was cumbersome; as I said before, some of these postings were made years ago; had to go back; find the 'source' of the material; sometimes that takes several tomes to go through, and it did; so, I fixed all the Emmy entries, some of which were also cumbersome.... Still 'searching' for the first color broadcast 'stuff', so have left it off for now.

 

I'll also get the 'other concerns' you had....

 

Keep on keeping me alert to errors....

So, you still insist the Emmys were held in March when the season wasn't even finished till May or June huh? I know the Emmys were always a bit strange but this is certainly weird with a capital W! And do you mean Desi did a remote from Desilu and then went on to co host in Burbank? And what the heck is The Dinenr Show?
