Just A Reminder: Bette’s Birthday

Mister D:

I should have thought of this earlier, but I didn’t. As we all know Miss M’s birthday is Monday, Dec 1, 2008, and I thought it would be nice to send our own birthday greetings. I’ve done this in the past.

If you would like to participate in Miss M’s birthday by sending her your own birthday greetings through me, please have your email to me no later than November 30th, 2008 at midnight. That’s next Sunday.

The only rules I have are to keep it to a few sentences and to keep it positive. No questions to her since she can’t answer them…LOL. It’s up to you whether you want to use your full name, but it would be nice for you to put where you are from as in city, town, country, state, village, etc. You get the drift. Also your age would be nice, too. I want her to see that she’s loved around the world by all ages! Read More

Updated 11-30-2008: Diva Las Vegas CD/DVD Disappointment

Mister D: I found this to be true, too. Just got my copy. And while the audio CD is great, order of songs is a hatchet job….but at least I finally have a good CD copy. I would still buy it, but buyer beware….

Hi Mr. D:

I don’t know if anyone has written about this, but I received my Diva Las Vegas CD/DVD set today and I’m disappointed to say the write-up on Amazon.com is wrong. The DVD is not region 0 as listed on their product description. The package states it’s region 2/3/4/5/6. Therefore it is not playable on U.S. DVD players. I have two different DVD players and it is not compatible with either. Read More

Stop The Madness! It’s Bette Midler, Not Bette Davis Midler!

When it comes to Bette, I know everyone has her best interests at heart…at least the fans do. But I want to straigten up something that’s been bothering me as well as some others…kind of like a little gnat swarming around your head that you just can’t seem to get rid of.

I’m not trying to be mean, but I do want to clear something up. I don’t care if you have read this in the most trusted of publications, say The New York Times, but Bette’s middle name is not DAVIS. Yes it is true Bette’s mom named her after Bette Davis and her other daughters after other movie stars, but she did not give her girls the last names of these movie stars. Read More

Happy Thanksgiving!
Plus Mister D Pardons Moronica, The Bootlicking Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving To Everyone….we all have thanks to give even in the direst situations/predicaments we find ourselves in. And we really need to know this during these trying times.

I am thankful for you guys and gals support through the years. Some were pretty rough, but you kept me going. And I thank you for it.

Moronica has developed Seasonal Affective Disorder or else I would have wrung her neck. She’s done nothing since Kiss My Brass. Pray that she gets her mojo back or else next year she might not get so lucky! Read More

I Love The Irish!!!

The Mirror (London, England)
Article date: November 25, 2008

ALMOST 30 per cent of Irish people love strutting their stuff on a karaoke stage, a survey found yesterday.

A study by Microsoft found a 730,000 people have seized the micro phone and belted out a tune in front of strangers.

Our top tune is Every thing I Do by Bryan Adams followed by Bette Midler’s Wind Beneath My Wings.
