Welcome to the Toy Hall of Fame!

ballThree new toys have just been inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame: the Gameboy, the Big Wheel, and the ball. And this makes me feel old. Why? The ball is the only one of the three that I was young enough to play with when it came out!  The Gameboy came out in 1989. That's the year I moved to Madison and started working at the state capitol.  The Big Wheel came out in 1969. I was already riding around the block on a 2-wheeler by that year. Okay wise-achers--the ball was invented when I was a kid. Am I a fan of the ball, you might ask? Oh sure--what could possibly be wrong with a ball? It has caused me a bit of trauma over the years. I have nightmares about certain neighborhood Dodgeball games. Even the innocent seeming keep-away game Monkey in the Middle can turn ugly when one of the players (me) is decidedly shorter than the other two. I even unwittingly caused my younger brother to require stitches as an infant..because of the now famed ball. I taught him how to roll around on it on his stomach when he was under a year old and somehow he cracked his chin open. Next time you see him ask to see the scar. You know I think last year's big inductee into the Toy Hall of Fame was a much safer choice: the stick. Unless you take into account that whole poking an eye out  possibility. See the whole list of Hall of Fame toys here.

Marshall's Top Albums of 2014
1. U2- Songs of Innocence: One of my favorite English poets is, William Blake. Jim Morrison of the Doors was so inspired by Blake's poetry, he used one of Blake's lines, "the doors of perception," to name the Doors….the Doors! So, this U2 album,...
