It's Leonard Nimoy's 80th! - A Homage to Star Trek

Today is Leonard Nimoy’s 80th birthday.  Just…wow.  On Twitter, @theRealNimoy joyfully posted that he’s having a big bash, with 100 people, some traveling from great distances.

LLAP (live long and prosper) Mr. Nimoy.

I stumbled upon Star Trek by accident.  There were only three channels back then - NBC, ABC and CBS.  TV Guide was a bible back then, thick and square and substantive.  It arrived by mail on Tuesday or Wednesday.  I read it cover-to-cover.  (Tuesday or Wednesday was also the day the new Batman and Fantastic Four comics hit the stand - so it was a busy two days.)
