    lol, I have a feeling the real Bette would think that video a hoot. Merry Christmas, Larry. I'm glad my humble efforts cheered you up a bit.
  2. BRONXGIRL'S MOTHER, HENRY FONDA'S HIRSUTENESS, ETC.

    Thanks, Rich! I originally thought that was really Bette's voice, lol. The happiest, healthiest, most wonderful Christmas and New Year to you and all my dear friends here! And now for a special, out of this world holiday musical experience:
  3. Where are the blogs?

    Thanks, guys! Appreciate your help. It's all very confusing these days. Just read FIEND WITHOUT A FACE, lol.
  4. Where are the blogs?

    Thanks for replying. Yes, Movie Morlocks. I'm not liking all this change.... I could say more but won't.
  5. Where are the blogs?

    I can't find them anymore.

    Drat. The right hinge on my HP computer is loose. I perused YouTube looking for a quick fix but much too low-tech (and a wuss with fear of electrical shock even just unplugging it and removing the battery) to attempt any solutions. So if worse comes to worse and my entire screen falls off you will know why I have not posted.

    Thanks, Molo! Hope you had a wonderful Turkey Day! Ann looks like she's about to enjoy hers, lol. (one of my favorite actresses!)

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

    Hi, molo, my little raven! (then I guess Halloween didn't really "fly" by you, lol) My favorite exchange from that film: Boris: "Maybe if a man is ugly, he does ugly things...." to which Bela replies: "You are saying something profound!" Nothing scary occurred -- no alligators slithering out of the pond and knocking on my door with their tails. No 90 year old Boca men creeping up on me with their hairy arms. I ate pizza followed by devil's food cake for dessert, and enjoyed a perennial favorite, THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL. I forgot to watch THE OLD DARK HOUSE. Darn those home shopping channels!!
