aka Paul Reubens and his Pee Wee Herman character.
Julia Chalene Newmeyer (age 79).
Born on August 16th, 1933 in Los Angeles, California.
Best known for her fabulous Catwoman role in the 1966-1968 TV Series.
Catwoman: Let no one say that Catwoman is not the best-dressed woman in the world.
Batman: There are no fashion shows where you’re going, Catwoman.
Robin: And how could a feline feloness like you also be a fashion model?
Batman: Ah-ah. Give credit where credit is due, Robin. She may be evil, but she is attractive.
You’ll know more about that in a couple of years.
“I can give you happiness more than anyone in the world”
With those curves mamacita, I’m surprised that Adam West didn’t get beet red like the batphone. Hot damn.
From the site julienewmar.com, I learned she designed her own costume for her Catwoman role between 1966-1967.
She blogs and has her own Facebook fanpage.
However, her YouTube page has timeless gems such as the one above.

I could listen to this all day long:
Jean Piaget /Swiss developmental psychologist and philosopher
August 9th 1896 – 16 September 1980 (aged 84)
How does knowledge grow? “His researches in developmental psychology and genetic epistemology had one unique goal: how does knowledge grow? His answer is that the growth of knowledge is a progressive construction of logically embedded structures superseding one another by a process of inclusion of lower less powerful logical means into higher and more powerful ones up to adulthood.
Therefore, children’s logic and modes of thinking are initially entirely different from those of adults.Piaget’s oeuvre is known all over the world and is still an inspiration in fields like psychology, sociology, education, epistemology, economics and law as witnessed in the annual catalogues of the Jean Piaget Archives. He was awarded numerous prizes and honorary degrees all over the world.”
