Sweep The Leg! Cobra Kai Crane-Kicks Us In The Nostalgia on YouTube

I loved The Karate Kid growing up. I’m pretty sure my brother and I fought each other after every viewing, back in 1984. I was 9 years old and watched that video tape often.

What Did I Learn This Week? – #3 – February 11, 2018

“You learn something new every day.” Time for this week’s installment of things that I learned. Let’s get to sharing! Tom Hanks is playing Mr. Rogers. I adored watching Mr. Rogers as a kid.
