First off…I hope each of ya’ll had a very Happy Thanksgiving. I did and my belly proves it…my pants however are not pleased.
Secondly, Happy Birthday early to Miss M. You just don’t comprehend what joy you’ve brought into so many people’s lives. So thank you (Okay…I pretend she’s reading…LOL)
Thirdly, I got some songs up for the next week. I included a rough cut of “Hello In There” that I recorded just recently. I was going to try and have it ready…just as a little gift to Miss M and her fans…hope ya’ll aren’t traumatized…:-) I have recently been blessed with having my leg almost fully recover so I started playing the piano again and singing. Barry made me sit down the other night to record this. but I never had time to go back and redo it…anyway, it’s just my piano and my vocal…nothing special. I hope to re-record it another day. Some of you I let hear early and I thank you for the feedback. I usually stay quite a distance from Miss M’s songs, but there are a few I do play with….
Mister D: Some may find this too sad…it did bring tears to my eyes. But I just loved this article…lovingly, yet painfully written. It just made me realize how important it is to stay connected and in the moment…you never know what’s around the corner…I hope you get something out of it…
It doesn’t happen overnight
Richard E. Cosgriffe, my Daddy, is 76 and has probably had Alzheimer’s for 10 years. It’s difficult for his doctors to pinpoint. The disease doesn’t happen overnight. But looking back, we remember details and specifics that suggest the disease was beginning to erode his brain. Once at our Beartooth place, he accidentally broke the glass in a door, laughed and walked into another room. (“Bang,” he said, very unlike daddy. The old daddy would have removed the glass shards, put the frame in the car and handled the repair.)

As for Bette taking over the lead in UrineTown, the hit Broadway Musical, Mister V writes:
i believe they offered it to her, but i doubt she’s going to do it. although it’s pretty hard to pass up the opportunity to sing “it’s a privilege to pee” eight times a week.
And there you have it….as always…mucho thanks for helping to clear things up:-) Have a Happy Holiday…..
This link is kind of cool, because you get a peek at what things have to be done to pull things together…there’s also a link within this link that will show you last year’s “coming together” too.
More than likely I will put up the Hulaween songs from one year I didn’t attend (thanks to a generous, sharing donator) and I may eventually post the songs that were asked to be taken down…afterall it was a gift and very much appreciated…but things don’t change because I’m not liked now. That is silly and petty. There’s a war going on for goodness sakes. Let’s get some perspective….

Bollywood is famous for borrowing from Hollywood. Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, the Indian remake of the 80s dark comedy Ruthless People, is the latest.
WHILE the Hollywood version featured old timers Danny DeVito and Bette Midler, the Hindi version stars bad boys Fardeen Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Aftab Shivdasani alongside good girls Twinkle Khanna and Sonali Bendre.
With the tag line ‘Pyar Chahiye ya paisa chahiye’ (do you want love or money), the film promises to show exactly how far men are willing to go to obtain both.
CD Universe has it that Stella and Scenes from a Mall will be released on DVD April 8, 2003….but where is the “The Rose” dammit!!!
Warm Response To Local Troupe
Several local dancers from David Sanders Dance Dynamics in East Islip and North Babylon performed at noted actress Bette Midler’s recent “Halloween” Bash at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Manhattan.
Proceeds from the event went to the New York Restoration Project. Over $1.4 million was raised to improve parks.
Sanders’ dance troupe was discovered by Midler last August as they performed at a benefit in Bryant Park in Manhattan for Dancers Responding to AIDS. Impressed, she later contacted Sanders and invited him to bring his group to her “Halloween” Bash.

For more elite eating, there’s the Trustees Dining Room (open to members who contribute $3,000 a year). It has become a celebrity haven, where the likes of Bette Midler and Michael Douglas partake of peeky toe crab salad ($12), goujonette of sole ($21) and crème brûlée ($8). And that’s just the lunch menu.
TODAY’S NOSTALGIA: On Nov. 25, 1977, CBS helped Rolling Stone celebrate its 10th anniversary with an hour-long special featuring Bette Midler, Steve Martin, Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek.
