Lucille Ball power we can do it

Yesterday, I had a little rendez-vous with the 1950s again. I watched an episode of the I love Lucy show and it was hilarious. The I love Lucy show is a sitcom of the 50s starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The comedy serie is about Lucy Ricardo and her husband Ricky Ricardo.

Once again you make it possible to watch one (or two) season(s) in one night. Read more

So keep that sun coming! Read more
