The reason I've put the links up above is that Sarah Lee is a very talented professional singer and entertainer who has given up her time every Sunday from 8pm to after 10pm to provide UPLIFTING entertainment, which I hope other people will enjoy, as well as myself and OH and her hundreds of fans.

If anyone is interested, a few years ago she lost 5 stone in weight!

A combination of diet and exercise.

Oscar Wilde always had the best put downs.

I own a paperback book bought back in the 80s, Famous Last Words.

The one I always remember besides Oscar, a Civil War General. "They could hit a barn from there!" He was talking about the other side's cannon. Yes, they did hit and kill him.
