Dana Elcar, 'MacGyver' actor dies at 77

Dana Elcar, MacGyver’s boss in the hit series died on Monday at the age of 77. I can only presume there are very few people from 25 and up who never saw MacGyver. It was certainly a favourite of my brothers and I! What that guy could do with a pen knife and duct tape.
Dana Elcar was the balding boss, Pete, who sent MacGyver on his missions. Remember he went blind towards the end of the series? That’s because in real life he suffered from glaucoma, and he lost his sight.
Thanks for all the good times Dana!

Top Gear

Did anyone else see Top Gear today? The things they did to that Toyota pick-up, and it even survived sitting on top of a 240ft building that was being demolished! 😀
I’d love to go for a drive in the Aussie car they tested. Any offers?

Frank Twomey used to present childrens tv program, Bosco. He doesn’t seem to mention Bosco anywhere though. I wonder why? *grin*
