A Little Romance with Johnny Mathis Johnny Mathis turned 72 in September...but hasn't aged at all.....he's as handsome as ever and still has the voice of an angel. Johnny Carson, who heard over 2000 singers on his show, once said: "Johnny Mathis is the best ballad singer in the world." Here's a look back to a Concert given at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. I hope you'll enjoy it.

Remembering  Tracy  and  Hepburn Song "I Finally Found Someone" by Barbra Streisand and Bryan Adams. Nowadays, Hollywood fans have regarded Hepburn's lifelong romance with Spencer Tracy as an example of true love even though they never married. Although there must have been true love between them, their romance was far from being a Cinderella story. For most of the years that she spent with him, he was also an alcoholic, at times launching abusive rants before blacking out. For years at a time, Hepburn would help him dry out, arranging her professional life around his needs……..Near the end of Tracy's life Hepburn all but quit working to nurse him through repeated illnesses." Hepburn defended her affair saying, "We just passed 27 years together, in what was to me absolute bliss." And how did Tracy feel about their romance? Believe it or not, it seems he never talked about it because he refused to admit it actually existed. Even when Hepburn rushed to his side when he was hospitalized before he passed on, Tracy referred to her as a wonderful friend. Tracy never allowed the two of them to be photographed together except for a movie they both starred in. We are told that the reason for this is that Tracy was a devout Catholic and was married to another woman, had children and did not want to offend his children, or wife. The love relationship of Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy was an example of both heartbreak and true love.

IT MIGHT BE YOU  Written by the team of Marilyn and Alan Bergman, this song, performed by Stephen Bishop (whose birthday is 11/14), was the theme for the 1982 hit Tootsie. I absolutely love it! A truly romantic classic, from an era when lyrics meant something. Doesn't it make you want to fall in love all over again?

Stage Door Canteen the movie poster reads, "Through the doors of the most famous canteen in the world pass the armed forces of all the United Nations where they are entertained nightly by the most famous personalities of stage, screen and radio. Here they find laughter, comradeship and gaiety . . . and dance to music by their favorite big-name bands. Here, too, they find romance . . . while a constant panorama of wonderful entertainment unfolds before their happy eyes. STAGE DOOR CANTEEN brings you 48 great stars . . .6 big-name bands. . . and a poignant and indescribably tender story of a soldier's love in wartime . . . where hours must take the place of years." (The real Stage Door Canteen on 44th Street could not be used for the filming as it was too busy receiving real servicemen. It was recreated in New York and at the RKO Studios in Culver City.)

Our Gang - Janet Burston The final leading lady of the Our Gang comedies was Janet Burston. She joined the troupe in 1940 as a five-year-old during the MGM era and stayed until the series meekly ran its course in 1944. After Darla Hood left in 1942, Burston became the Gang's female lead by default. She is pictured here in a scene circa 1942. Note that Spanky McFarland is still part of the Gang, as is Billie (Buckwheat) Thomas. That's young Robert Blake (who acted under the name of Mickey Gubitosi) on Burston's right. In the final movies of the series, Janet was the romantic interest of Froggy Laughlin (standing between Spanky and Buckwheat). Fans of the series often criticize Burston for her over-the-top acting. "Oh, I was a ham!" she said in an interview late in her life. "But that's the way they wanted it--the hammier, the better!" Burston didn't have much of a film career after her Our Gang days ended. Married four times, she died of cancer in 1998 at the age of 63.

Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell  AINT NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH IN 1967, this original version of "Ain't No Mountain", was a care-free, danceable, and romantic love song that became the signature duet between Gaye and Terrell. Its success led to a string of more duets including 'You're All I Need to Get By' and 'Your Precious Love'. Even though Diana Ross recorded it again three years later, the Gaye/Terrell version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999, and is regarded today as one of the most important records ever released by Motown.

Greta Garbo and John Gilbert Greta Garbo and John Gilbert, the queen and king of silent romantic movies, in "Flesh and Devil," 1927. She reigned in the talkies as well, but he became one of the casualties of sound, not so much because his voice was thin, but because talking-picture audiences no longer wanted romantic heroes, preferring tough guys. . .

Easter Eggs Symbolize New Life Of all the symbols associated with Easter, the egg, the symbol of fertility and new life, is the most identifiable. The customs and traditions of using eggs have been associated with Easter for centuries. Originally Easter eggs were painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring and were used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts. After they were colored and etched with various designs the eggs were exchanged by lovers and romantic admirers, much the same as valentines. In medieval time eggs were traditionally given at Easter to the servants. In Germany eggs were given to children along with other Easter gifts. Different cultures have developed their own ways of decorating Easter eggs. Crimson eggs, to honor the blood of Christ, are exchanged in Greece. In parts of Germany and Austria green eggs are used on Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday). The Slavic people decorate their eggs in special patterns of gold and silver. In Germany and other countries eggs used for cooking where not broken, but the contents were removed by piercing the end of each egg with a needle and blowing the contents into a bowl. The hollow eggs were dyed and hung from shrubs and trees during the Easter Week. The Armenians would decorate hollow eggs with pictures of Christ, the Virgin Mary, and other religious designs. At the Jewish Passover Seder, a hard-boiled egg dipped in salt water symbolizes both new life and the Passover sacrifice offered at the Temple in Jerusalem.
