    Judy Garland Somewhere Over The Rainbow – More amazing videos are a click away Today’s feature is one that means a lot to me.  Judy Garland was a very early influence on my life, and it was on this date in 1922 that she was born.  I cannot recall how many biographies I have read about her life.  It’s been […]

    What a classy lady!  Anyone know who she is?  Well, I will give you a hint.  She was born on this date in 1924.  And her name is Doris Day–or at least, that is how we know her.  She was my dad’s favorite singer–so I was not interested in her when I was much younger.  I always wanted to rebel […]
