The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Is Now My S.O.N.

My husband and I were watching The Man From U.N.C.L.E. binge this weekend on “Decades” TV. We both enjoyed this popular, award-winning spy show as kids in the 60s, and I, like many other girls, had a crush on blond, “long-haired” David McCallum who played Illya Kuryakin. Co-star Robert Vaughn as Napoleon Solo was quite handsome as well—although he had the traditional clean-cut hairstyle and appeared older or more mature to me back then. I mean, as a kid, I thought he must be at least 40!

But as we were watching this weekend, I began to notice how YOUNG they both looked. Sometimes the camera would hit them at just the right angle and they seemed to have such baby faces. What was going on? I never felt that way before! What was different? Then it occurred to me. These men were now the same ages as our grown sons! I am old enough to be their mother! Eww.

So no wonder the show felt a little different to me. I was getting older, while Napoleon and Illya stayed young. I even checked Wikipedia to find out their ages, and sure enough they were in their early to mid-30’s throughout the show, which ran from 1964-68. They are both 83 now. Wow. When my parents were that age, they were dead!

Okay, so now it seems a little weird to be crushing over baby-faced Illya. But at least I can still dream about being an U.N.C.L.E. secretary, like Barbara Moore who joined the cast as Lisa Rogers in the fourth season. Oh those beautiful women in their classy skirts and tops, fiddling with computer knobs and delivering important messages to all the spies at UNCLE Headquarters. The intrigue! The glamour! But wait, I think they only hired pretty, young women. So I’m too old for that, too. Sigh.

Oh well, the show is still fun to watch, even if those “uncles” are like sons to me. They are so cute, I just want to pinch their cheeks!!

Ravi D: 

Cindy, life is no fun without mind altering drugs and what people do in their own home is none of your or my bussiness. People cook crack in their homes can I stop them? No! Do I find them and tell them not to do it or something? Cindy id LOVE for you to go to the worst hood in Compton or Chicago where you live.....and tell someone selling crack cocaine not to do it. Id love to see that.You'd knock on the door of a crack house and start preaching. Well, you'd get about 2mins in before that person shut the door in ur face or stabbed you and put you in a shallow grave somewhere. People sell illegal drugs as a JOB and probably make more money than whatever you get from disability so why dont you shut the fuck up and quit talking before someone hurts you. Hopefully someone finds your address and burns all those creepy dolls and makes you act like an actual adult instead of a whiny little baby who plays the victim in order for people to feel sorry for her. LOL well we dont. Cindy, you got butt fucked as a child probably by your uncle or the creepy man at the park. GET OVER IT WE DONT CARE. Get some pills and some therapy and grow up! Whatsmore you are ugly and no one feels bad for you people would probably murder you(I wouldnt) no joke hope you have ADT or something. I would of jumped by now if I were you. Found a really tall my favorite dolly and jumped. Thats your other best bet.

Hi Cindy,
Respectfully,there is usually a difference between medical grade marijuana and regular pot. The safest means of using mj for relief of pain for instance, is by using cbd oil,which is mot psychoactive. There are many cancer patients who find relief from their pain symptoms by using medical marijuana, and who am I to deny them an opportunity for relief from that excruciating pain? Please rethink your position on MM vs ordinary pot.
Best regards,
Tony Fa├žade (remember me?)

Cindy's reply:
So, first of all, this Tony guy is the same guy who has posted mean comments about me, making fun of me for not "pleasing my husband" (to put it delicately). And now he is talking to me about MEDICAL marijuana, asking me to "rethink my position" on it, telling me that it is safe, etc. AARGGHHH, has he not read a thing I have written over the years??? It is because of people like him that I realize we all need to keep speaking up against pot. It is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it! Do we really want jerks like him to walk around actually USING a mind-altering drug?? HECK NO!

Now all I want to do is write articles and make videos using all the THOUSANDS of comments and emails I have collected, to show what these "medical" users and supporters are like! The world needs to know!! It is so depressing. I always thought MEDICAL users and supporters and growers would be NICE, and surely agree that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally. What parent would ever raise their kids to grow up and get high on POT? At any age? And I say the same things about alcohol! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law! That's all I'm saying! You guys always think that just because I say we shouldn't smoke pot, that I'm all "hung up on pot" and think that it's all dangerous and deadly and "ruins your life" and that I am all against "medical marijuana." I never say that! All I'm saying is that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally, that this is good morals and just plain common sense! And I am NOT against medical marijuana or ANYTHING that truly helps someone with a true medical condition! But as I said, I have yet to find any kind of true, decent medical marijuana user! It is just crazy!!! 
Why did he ask me to "rethink my position on medical marijuana"? Why can't people understand that I am just saying we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs RECREATIONALLY! It really isn't that hard of a concept to grasp!! And I have explained this over and over so many times for the past 15 years online, how can people not understand it by now??

More fan mail from another lovely football fan: (WARNING! STRONG LANGUAGE)

You stupid fucking doll loving retarded bitch. Football isn't horrible and neither are all its players and fans, you're just extremely irrational. If football was so bad why would countless players spend their time with charities, donating to charities, and spending time at children's hospitals? Fucking retard. By the way mayb you should try some pot you hate so much. Maybe it will help you think rationally

POT SMOKER LOGIC: "Weed" Doesn't Break Up Families

POT SMOKER LOGIC Grow Tacoma: Weed doesn't break up families. Imprisonment does. cindybin2001: AAARGGHHH OH I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Even after ALL I HAVE SAID OVER THE YEARS, you guys STILL don't get it, and you all still say the same things over and over and over! I have said over course imprisonment is terrible! Nobody wants anybody in jail! And that is why I speak up and try to help people understand why we shouldn't use drugs! Pot is AGAINST THE LAW in most states, and you can get into serious trouble if you get busted! Kids need to remember this! It won't help to tell the judge how safe "weed" is or that you get good grades or have a good job or that Obama and Carl Sagan smoked pot, etc. Where I live, the judge would laugh in your face and throw you in jail for making excuses for breaking the law and using illegal drugs! But even if pot were legal, what parent would EVER raise their kids to grow up and get high on marijuana? At any age?? Most parents try to raise their kids with morals, values and common sense to know that this is wrong and just plain immature! Can't you understand this simple concept?? Why do you guys ALWAYS accuse me of thinking that your precious "weed" is doing things like "breaking up families" or that it's dangerous and addictive and kills people? NOBODY THINKS THAT! Doesn't it even OCCUR to you people that we are against pot because it's a mind-altering drug?? I say the same things about alcohol! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker except they aren't breaking the law! People need to grow up and set an example and not use mind-altering drugs to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax, have "fun", enjoy life, celebrate, socialize, etc. What a thing to do! And my whole point is that nobody would ever have to worry about "imprisonment" if they didn't smoke pot! How hard is it to NOT SMOKE POT?? Where would one even FIND this stuff? It is AGAINST THE LAW! I have never even SEEN marijuana! Nobody has ever offered me pot or talked about it to me or anything! And I was a teen in the 70s! Same for my husband! And we sure don't know anybody NOW who smokes pot, approves of it or knows where to find it!! I have never had to worry about being in prison or in trouble with the law over drugs!! Just the fact that you guys always say these ridiculous things to me about how "weed doesn't break up families, imprisonment does", proves to me that pot should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES. It is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it! Like you! Do we really want people like you walking around actually USING mind-altering drugs? Heck no! Look at you. Instead of being a nice, decent, mature guy and taking a stand AGAINST drugs, you have said tons of horrible, ridiculous things to me, trying to defend your precious "weed." Again, nobody would ever have to worry about being imprisoned for marijuana use if they would just grow up and NOT SMOKE POT. How hard is it to not smoke pot? Where would one even FIND this stuff?? If you guys would just grow up and get some morals, there wouldn't BE any "drug laws" or "drug war." Nobody would have to worry about this at all! I never even THOUGHT about pot before all this. But boy have you guys opened my eyes! Now that I know how all you pot smokers think, I realize that pot SHOULD be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES!

Editor's note: I wrote this blog years ago but am reposting it now, after getting many comments from young teens and young ladies who say things like "Who cares about modesty"? They honestly see no reason to be modest, and don't even understand what it means.


A recent newspaper article caught my eye—a story about an “alternative prom” held for LDS youth, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (or “Mormons”). The article talked about teens and chaperones from the Chicago area who gathered in a church facility for their own special prom, where they could “dress up, dance and enjoy themselves in an atmosphere that reflected their religious beliefs.” The youngsters could still attend their regular school dances, of course, but this was just something special for them as well, which would be a safe place for kids to gather without encountering alcohol, smoking, immodest dress or sexually suggestive dance moves. Some of the Mormon youths brought friends from other religious denominations. Admission was free. The theme was “Reflecting Eternity” and the article talked about how expectations were clear as far as dress: “Show up in Sunday dress or better as per LDS standards, clearly outlined in a little white booklet issued to church youth. That meant no short skirts, tight clothing, plunging necklines or backs, exposed stomachs, bare shoulders or anything else that flies in the face of what the church deems to be neat and modest.”

The article noted that these days, it takes some effort for young ladies to dress modestly. “For years Mormon girls have complained about being unable to easily find formal dresses that have sleeves,” the article stated. “Most off-the-rack dresses have either spaghetti straps, low-cut necklines or open backs. As a result, the girls have had to creatively find ways of covering up with jackets, scarves or shrugs.”

The article included quotes from kids about how they enjoyed the dance and the activities, etc. One of the church leaders who chaperoned the event said that these kids are right at the stage in their lives when they are watching peers start to make choices that are going to have long-term impacts on their lifestyles, such as alcohol and tobacco use, drugs, and sexual issues. “It’s starting to draw some childhood friends down different paths and that is upsetting to young people when they see that happen. We hope this gives them places to gather that they can come and enjoy each other.”

I just thought this was a good article, and wanted to share a bit of it. I was not raised LDS (I converted as an adult) so I never knew about these modest dress guidelines of the Church when I was that age. But then, I never went to a dance in high school, either (nobody ever asked me on a date!). I did go to a few dances in college, but my formals were not at all revealing. I don’t even remember having any trouble finding gowns with sleeves, such as the formal I wore as a college senior in the late 70s (see photo above). These were the types of dresses I picked out, even though I did not really have any religious beliefs back then. I do remember sometimes wearing a halter top in college, but I was so skinny that I didn’t think a thing of it. Had I been more voluptuous, I certainly was not the type to want to show off my chest. It would have creeped me out having guys look at me for something like that.

This is why it bothers me so much when I hear about such things as Hooters waitresses walking around serving food in skimpy outfits, and posing with their exposed cleavage for Hooters magazine and on the company’s website. How can they DO that? What kind of example are they setting? And then there are the revealing gowns you often see in beauty pageants and on awards shows. And of course there are the racy and pornographic magazines common in today’s society, not to mention strip clubs and the like.

I can’t help but look at these young LDS teens, the standards they have. I am not saying they are perfect, because of course nobody is. But I think that virtually all of them would agree that it would not be a good thing to work at or go to Hooters, or to pose for FHM, Maxim, Playboy, or even the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition or Victoria’s Secret. I highly doubt any of them would think being a stripper is something one should aspire to, and I don’t think these young girls would want to marry a guy who would go to a strip club. These LDS youths would all know that this type of behavior is wrong, that it sets women back, no matter how much they are paid. I think they know that it is degrading to everyone involved, both men and women.

Yet I have chatted with women online who say they would pose for Playboy if they lost weight, or that nothing is wrong with posing for FHM Magazine or being a stripper or going to strip clubs. Their reasoning astounds me. “They get paid big bucks!” “How are they being taken advantage of? They’re laughing all the way to the bank!” “How does this set women back? My partner and I think that women get everything!” “If you’ve got it, flaunt it!”

Statements like these drive me crazy. It scares and saddens me to think that so many women (and men) simply cannot understand why this type of behavior is wrong.  I have posted with a young British woman who told me that had she been alive in the 60’s, she would have loved to be a Playboy Bunny (the women who dressed in skimpy bunny costumes and served food and drink at the famous Playboy Clubs). She felt that this occupation was “empowering” to women. I asserted that it was far from empowering, but that it was degrading. I told her about TV shows I watched in the 60s which portrayed jobs like “bunny girls” as something scandalous. A “nice girl” just didn’t do that sort of thing, and decent men did not go to such places. There was a “That Girl” episode where Ann filled in for a girlfriend at a nightclub for the evening, and found out that she had to wear a skimpy outfit. It wasn’t nearly as revealing as the bunny costume; it was sort of a one-piece leopard print swimsuit, not low-cut at all, and with a little skirt attached. Yet to Ann, wearing something like this made her feel very uncomfortable. As the episode went on, the nightclub was raided and Ann ended up in jail because of some misunderstanding. Her boyfriend Donald came to get her, and was shocked at what she was wearing! He immediately took off his trench coat and put it around her. Ann was embarrassed, too, and said that if her parents found out, her father would be yelling and her mother would be sobbing. At the end of the show, Donald told Ann to never go back to that nightclub. Ann said she had to, in order to get her paycheck. Don said to have them mail it to her, and that she could mail the costume back “in a very small envelope.”

And then there was a “Gidget” episode where Gidget got a job as a waitress at a teen club, but through a misunderstanding, her father, sister and brother-in-law thought she was working at the “Tomcat Club” as a “kitty”. The women there wore outfits similar to the bunny costumes, only not as low-cut. When they were talking about going to this club to find Gidget, her sister was upset that her husband would even think of walking into such a place, and insisted on going with him to help find the teen. Gidget’s father went into the club and couldn’t find Gidget. At the end of the show, when they found out that she did not work there at all, Gidget said she was surprised that her family went to the Tomcat Club, and especially chastised her father, telling him that a place like that was hardly appropriate for a university professor (which he agreed with).

I told this British woman all these things and more, but it was like talking to a wall. This young lady simply could not see it, and stated that we would just have to agree to disagree. Women like her and those in various other groups with whom I have become acquainted, who have good families, jobs and education—I keep thinking that if THEY can’t understand how it sets women back, then what hope is there for the real “jerkface idiots” of the world--those who would publish racy magazines and run places like Hooters or strip clubs, and have bachelor parties with strippers, etc. I have heard men claim that women work at Hooters willingly, and seem to be happy. I have replied that of course they seem to be happy, because they want a big tip! “Do you really think they care about you as people?” I ask. And even though these women appear to be happy on the outside, I firmly believe that they cannot be truly happy inside. Certainly not in the way those Mormon youths are with their beliefs and standards. People also have asked me if I would rather we be under Taliban rule. Well of course not, I reply. But I try to explain that this behavior sets women back in a different way, even more than the Taliban.

I agree that it is a woman’s choice to work at Hooters or to be a stripper or pose for racy magazines or even to wear revealing dresses. That is why we are all here on earth, to make wise decisions, to learn and grow, so that we can return to our Father in Heaven someday. But I also believe that most parents would be appalled if their daughter grew up to make the choice to engage in this behavior (I know my parents would have!), and that most little girls have higher aspirations for themselves than that when they grow up, anyway. No little girl thinks, “I want to be a stripper (or work at Hooters or pose for FHM) when I grow up!” Just because a woman gets paid does not make it right. In fact, that’s what makes it so very wrong! No amount of money is worth that. It makes men disrespect us and sets a terrible example. In my opinion, a woman who flaunts her body for money does not “get everything.” She gets nothing, really. And I feel glad that most of these LDS youngsters know that, so that it will help them continue to make wise choices for the rest of their lives.

The story also includes a link to a nice selection of photos from the dance. Those teens are so cute and really look like they are having a good time. The girls look lovely (some might even say “hot”) without showing lots of skin. So take a peak and get a different, refreshing point of view.
