To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

Oscar Night..Remembering Old Hollywood Glamour
A night at the Oscars! If only things were as they used to be!
Hollywood, old Hollywood, seemed to have such glamour, such intrigue and excitement. The women of Hollywood had enormous style. Perhaps as we age, we identify more with the people we grew up with and marveled at when we were children. I like it that way. I pay tribute to the women of Hollywood who seemed to be larger than life on that big screen....what memories they gave us!
Olivia de Haviland
Gina Rowlands Rita Hayworth Joan Crawford, yes, again....a favorite
