In high school, they called her Sarah Barracuda, because of her intense sports play.
I have this feeling that the Obama/Biden team has met its match. Look out Democrats, the Republicans had an ACE up their sleeve! Polls today are showing 63% for McCain and 37% for Obama. How do you like them apples, you Hillary-rejecting Democrats? Serves you right for treating Hillary that way. Hope she laughs all the way to her limo.

I like the Clinton's, all three of them. I wanted Hillary to win the nomination, because I felt that would secure the election for the Democrats. But now, it's a dead heat, and no one knows who will win. There are a lot of people for Obama, and most likely the same people who voted for Bush twice will vote for McCain. I think the election will be determined by the voting machines, and who controls them. What do you think?

The amazing Jimmy Plant showed up much too briefly, and a quick look at David Beckham, as the Olympic future unfolded bringing the 2012 Games to London.
I loved watching our young girl gymnasts as they worked so hard! Such brave girls.
And of course, eight gold medals to the record breaking Michael Phelps.

On Thursday, my friend Sarah had a link to a film that starred Anne Bancroft, which started me thinking about what a fabulous actress she was, and the first time I ever saw her in a film called The Pumpkin Eater way back in 1964, which was also the year she married Mel Brooks. The following videos show her versatility, two that were unknown to me, amidst the amazing catalog of her theatrical and film work. The Pumpkin Eater was my favorite film drama of hers, but at the end of her career, my favorite was a comedy, a nostalgic look back at a family with all their dysfunctions and love. It's called Home for the Holidays. It has a memorable cast, and I watch it every year at Thanksgiving, to remind myself of my own seriously interesting family!

Anne in a skit from 1970... a real tongue twister!
This is a wonderful clip of her many many faces... Love you Anne...
I hope you enjoyed these clips, and that you remember Anne Bancroft fondly. To me, she stood alone, completely separate from any other performer, not only because of her acting skill, but for her great wit, her sense of humor, that revealed her joy in living and her gift to us all.

I think this is the funniest joke!
Subject: OUTSOURCING MENTAL HEALTH
I was depressed last night so I called Lifeline.
Got a call center in Pakistan .
I told them I was suicidal.
They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck.
(drumroll... cymbal crash...)

WELL, HERE WE ARE WITH THE 2008 OLYMPICS UPON US, AND I HAD BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THE EXCITING OPENING CEREMONIES LIVE FROM CHINA, BUT APPARENTLY THAT IS NOT HAPPENING!
So, in lieu of this disappointing news, I decided to present a few really nice photos I found on the Internet, because I think we all need something to make us feel connected to this great event, and the Opening Ceremonies.
AT 9 PM TONIGHT, NBC WILL BROADCAST A REPEAT OF THE OPENING CEREMONIES, SO BE SURE TO WATCH, AS IT SHOULD BE SPECTACULAR!

It was a lovely show, and I enjoyed hearing not only the songs, but the stories that went with each star's presentation. My idol is TOMMY TUNE, who's life I've studied from the beginning of his career. And of course, BARBARA COOK is amazing. The greatest star of the Broadway stage was shown to sing a medley of songs, including the one she said made her famous: I've Got Rhythm: The fabulous ETHEL MERMAN.
It was a delightful hour and a half, and I hope they present it again.
