Who The Hell Is Judith Chalmers?


Hello, I'm Judith Chalmers...
I understand the importance of being active
to maintain healthy circulation in my lower legs and feet...


So, who the heck is Judith Chalmers? That's what I wanted to know. I see her every morning while watching CBC News Network - probably four or five times in the hour, hour and-a-half I watch the news channel. After seeing her commercial for the Circulation Booster V3 about a hundred times I finally said to myself "Who the hell is Judith Chalmers?". Well, of course I said it to myself. I was the only one there. "You talking to me?" Ya, you get the idea.

Woah! I want one! Beam me up Judith.

And thus began my quest. Google, Wikipedia and You Tube aided me in my search for knowledge. (You don't think I have too much time on my hands, do you?) Funny the things you find out about people you don't even know when you start looking.

And circulation is an apt word here. Ms. Chalmers has been in circulation for quite some time, having been born in 1936. Judith Chalmers is currently the spokesperson for the Circulation Booster V3, a device advertised as easing lower leg and foot pain. But quite apart from that the woman was a TV presenter on the BBC for many years, thirty of which she spent galavanting about the globe as the host of a show called "Wish You Were Here". Recently, she admitted that throughout the thirty years she hosted the show she never wore any knickers.



Thanks for sharing that, Judith. I may never get that picture out of my head.

Judith was awarded an OBE in 1994 and since then has the distinction of being voted #88 on the list of 100 Worst Britons. She's in good company. Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher rank #1 and #3 respectively.

Oh, and if you have sore legs or feet? Start saving your pennies, folks. The CB-V3 only costs $300.00. But it works. Yessiree, you can bet Judith Chalmers' knickers on it.

Maybe she is onto something. She is 75 and still working. (I guess that means her blood is still circulating).

LOL, Cheryl, I think you may have something there!
quirkyloon said…
Oh my heck. She looks like the sister of Cathy Mitchell! You know the RediSetGo info lady? She cooks all that good food? hee hee

I think I have to get out more Quirks. We see a lot of American TV here in Canada but I don't think Ms Mitchell made it across the border. In case the rest of you were wondering here's a pic I Googled...

I have no idea who she is or what that thing sh's selling is. I must be watching all the wrong shows.
nonamedufus said…
That's the thing. The ad's on a news channel. Must be for those old fogeys (like me) that sit in front of the TV all day. (I'm an old fogey but I don't sit in front of the TV all day.) Going for a walk might be cheaper.

Judith Chalmers can suck it!
nonamedufus said…
Why would she wanna suck on the CB-V3?

Hell, I used to get a better foot massage from my ex, it didn't cost me $300, and I got to keep my panties on!

;-)
nonamedufus said…
Tsk, tsk, 00dozo. I guess we can see why he's your ex. ;)
00dozo said…
I'm not one to 'foot' the bill.
Nicky said…
Why spend $0 on walking around outdoors to get the blood flowing when you can spend $300?

Maybe the knickers thing is part of the sales pitch: please buy our useless gizmo so Judith can finally afford some underwear. Please. FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY!!

If I didn't wear knickers I wouldn't advertise it. Well, maybe I would because that's how I roll sometimes. Most of the time I'm all for knickers. You can get pneumonia if you get too much breeze in places. On the other hand, there are times when everything should be aired out for a while. I even take my plants outside for fresh air. I'm not sure what blood circulating has to do with that machine thing, but I really doubt I'd want to suck it or see Judith suck it either.
nonamedufus said…
I think I'll get one and wear it in the front of my pants.
nonamedufus said…
lol...for me it's too late. The damage has been done with that image locked in my brain.
nonamedufus said…
And I didn't mean to be a "heel".

She was a presenter on BBC radio 4's Woman's Hour for many years (Don't know who set up her Wikipedia page - it's too vague) I remember she and Jack Nicolson got on very well together when she interviewed him. As I left the UK many years ago, I don't think I ever saw her on TV. Now I know what she looks like!

Oops, got her mixed up with Jenni Murray....
Boom Boom Larew said…
So, she's famous for going commando? You can get an OBE for that?
nonamedufus said…
Well, gosh, Angela thanks for illuminating us. Glad I could help you put the name with the face!
nonamedufus said…
Angela. What? We took you at your word. A lot of help you are. BTW here's a pic of Jenni...
nonamedufus said…
Oh yeah! She's an Old Broad that's Eccentric. An OBE!
nonamedufus said…
Meleah, get a grip.

Right here, my dear...

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
