    1. Well I absolutely love her voice, but any Karen Carpenter song literally brings me to tears and I don’t know why. I have to change the channel if any come on while I’m driving. I’m partial to Yesterday Once More, but the Christmas songs are so soulfully sung. I think her voice is just magical.

    1. I fell for Janis Joplin when I was very young and have loved her ever since. Diana Ross is just an amazing talent and what can I say about Carol Burnett? I’m so glad to have lived when she was wonderfully funny with Harvey Korman and Tim Conway. Comedy Genius.


  1. Ah, that avocado… I’ve worked hard to remove it from my home, but truth be told it can be so pretty in context. Thanks for the reminder of so many special things today! 🙂
