Dirty Dancing Dreaming

Nobody puts Baby in the corner...

It's hard to believe it's been 21 years since Swayze grabbed Jennifer Grey, dipped her backwards and danced his way into our hearts. And who can forget the way he trailed his fingers down her side with those naughty, bad-boy lips twitching into a smile?

I don't think I started to breathe again for a full minute.

Dirty DancingDirty DancingBut now this icon of the 80's is facing a lot more than stogy parents who can't see the beautiful woman their daughter has become.

Patrick and wife Lisa Niemi (who are both pilots) have been making a lot of trips to Palo Alto's airport, minutes away from the Stanford Cancer Center.

Swayze's publicist released this statement: "Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far," Swayze's physician, Dr. George Fisher said in the statement. "All of the reports stating the time frame of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic."

We know Patrick will give this fight all he has, and as loyal fans, we're rooting for him.

Swayze will always be hot in our books. And the Catskills of 1963 is a place we'll always happily travel to...

 Grab your coffee, your cubicle buddies and enjoy a replay of Swayze's famous dance with Jennifer Grey. As far as we're concerned, there can never be too many replays:

I had never seen the movie. I am 76 years old but when I heard about his problem I bought the DVD of Dirty Dancing. Man oh man does that make me want to be young again and meet someone like him!!!!!! Great movie and I have been watching it twice a day. Wonder what his answer to this would be Sigh!!!

I was not a huge fan of the movie but I am a huge fan of the area where Dirty Dancing was filmed - Lake Lure, NC. Visitors can take their pick from cabins, vacation homes and bed & breakfasts along the lake. Lake Lure is only 25 miles SE of Asheville, NC. This lazy little town is perfect for a girls weekend escape for those living in Atlanta. Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway are all nearby attractions. Visit http://www.girlfriendgetawaypackages.com/Destinations/Asheville/index.htm to see Asheville area packages.

I remember every year I would beg my mom to rent Dirty Dancing for my birthday. And every year on my birthday I was glued to the T.V. watching the movie for the 1,000th or so time. It became such a habit that the owner of the rental store would set a copy back for me as one year they were all out on my birthday. I didn't throw a fit or tantrum, but I did cry. After that he always kept a copy back for me and eventually just gave me the movie. After I moved away from home, the very first movie I bought myself was my beloved Dirty Dancing.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
