There are a few performers who seem to divide people.....you either HATE or LOVE them.  How do you stand on these people:

Barbra Streisand

Betty Hutton

Michael Jackson

Josh Groban

I just fell in love with Streisand all over again by watching her on THE JUDY GARLAND SHOW, singing "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" and "Down With Love" as well as THE medley with Judy, the other medley with Judy and the surprise appearance of Ethel Merman. 
I have also been watching the video which was supposed to be released with the "....for the record" boxed set, and all I can say is "Wow!"  Yep, it's the early Streisand that I love - and loved when MY NAME IS BARBRA initially aired - after STONEY END, the albums became a mish-mash, mostly mash, which I found little listening value in.  I do have to say, however, that of those 70s and 80s albums, I'm still very fond of BUTTERFLY.
Even though it's not Friday, I will say that my media check for the week includes the musical numbers on the dvd of FUNNY GIRL, and gosh, that dvd looks fabulous!

I adore Betty Hutton! 

Michael Jackson - well, I appreciate THRILLER, the album. . .and his performance in THE WIZ.

I haven't found a single thing about Josh Groban to NOT like, except maybe for the fact that most of his work is over-produced by David Foster. . .

Did anyone else happen to read the cover story on Barbra Streisand in last Sunday's PARADE Magazine?  It was one of the few really nice articles I have read about her in years.

I read it, DR TCB.

I thought it was lovely.  And it seems a lot closer to the Barbra that friends of mine who have met her describe her, rather than the Cruella usually featured in articles about her.

I have been hearing about this for years.  Any chance you could PM me a link to where it can be located on the Internets??        :)

I hope you are doing better tonight!

Well, we had some success today. Antonia wasn't thrilled, but she did much better.

Well, I don't care what they say, my Tortie, Sam, was warm' loving, and cuddly - with me - everybodyelse could go to hell. She did allow my other family members to share the house.

der Brucer

;D

Craig's Tortie was unusually affectionate when I visited.  I think it had to do with the fact they had been gone for several days, that always makes her more affectionate.  My friend I stayed with has a Tortie that looks just like her previous, very un-affectionate one.  This Tortie is shy but sweet.

DR Jennifer traded her weather for ours.   And it hit F 89 degrees here today.  That's 20 degrees warmer than yesterday (and the warmest day in four or five weeks).


The outside temperature dropped about 10 degrees in little under an hour with the reappearance of fog along the coast.

Keith was watching a show while on the cross trainer today, and they had a long haired Akita on.  He said it was the most beautiful dog he had ever seen.  I don't know what that dog looked like, this one I found online sure is a beauty:




Nice dog, but certainly no Sherlock!

Thank you.

DR Jane I think i would have been too scared to hike with the bear warning.

Although your warning reminded of something. There is a man-made lake, park, forrest 5 minutes from where i live. On the really hot days i was using the bike path through the forrest. While i was entering that area there were pictures of rabbits, foxes and a bear! The last one freaked me out (although the sign has been there for years). I hope there are no bears in there!

If there are, don't make eye contact or run.  I wonder if you can out bicycle a bear.  Honestly I was a bit nervous.  I know there is the possibility of bear & other wild life where ever I walk around here.

Yes, thank you vixmom for the great photos.

Why do I think that Jose's pictures will all be of the food - and possibly a monkey.

Yes, wonderful.  I have a feeling though she has much to cope with.  I hope her children were treated well.

Someone asked Jeremy Piven was his sign was.

He replied, "Mercury rising."

Back from, yes, another long and exhausting day.  I had a little drink with my pal Gene Castle, and we had a great time.  Gene's been in the business since he was a kid and was in the B'way cast of Flower Drum Song, the original cast of Gypsy, George M (where he had an incredible specialty number), and lots of other shows.

Rehearsal was fun and I finished staging what wasn't finished, and then we put everything on tape for her so she can now rehearse.  I will be rewriting her patter to now make it smooth and to the point and funny.

Then I met Adam Cates at the Brooklyn Diner - I had my beloved iceberg wedge, which was HUGE, with way too much Russian dressing, and then I had a club sandwich - I always forget how HUGE that is, and I was ready to burst.  Adam and I had a great chat, and then Miss Merrill Grant and our very own Rodzinski came by to join us for dessert.  We moved to a larger table and waited almost a half-hour before we ordered, so I wasn't quite so stuffed.  Merrill and Adam split the coconut cake and I changed it up and had what Rodzinski had - an incredibly yummilicious chocolate pudding pie - not HUGE and really great.  And then I came back to the hotel, finished packing, and now I shall write the notes and get them posted, then get to bed - I have a wake-up call set for 4:20 in the morning, and my transportation should arrive at 4:50.  I'm ready to come home, I must say.

Until later!
