All the naysayers can kiss Bette’s brass and my ass. She came in at Number One and Number 2 for Ticket sales followed by Stevie Wonder, Metallica, Neil Diamond, and L’il Wayne. There were for the dates Jan 17, 18 and 24, 25th.
There is a rumor going around (and a rumor is not fact, please remember) that Bette may be extending her contract with Caesar’s. That rumor is coming from Celine Dion, herself, who seems anxious to get back to Vegas after her World Tour comes to an end. After that, she wants to drop a baby, rest, and then get back in the groove taking turns with Bette and Cher at Vegas’s new Gay Mecca, Caesars.

Bette Midler performs at Caesar’s Palace

LAS VEGAS — Bette Midler, 63, still has the pizzazz to hold an audience of 2,000 people in the palm of her hand.
Ushered in by a staged tornado, the “People’s Diva” enthralled her fans — some even flying in from Great Britain just to see her at Caesar’s Palace Coliseum in Las Vegas.
With her amazing voice and spectacular outfits she started with “I’m Alive” and “In the Mood” and closed the show by accompanying herself on her ukulele with “The Story of Love.” Her encore was “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” with a large screen background of Midler portraying three different persons singing in harmony.

â€˜Frost/Nixonâ€™ named best movie for grown-ups
By ROBERT W. BUTLER
Movies loved by young people may dominate the box office, but that doesnâ€™t mean old folks donâ€™t have their favorites.
For example, â€œFrost/Nixonâ€ was chosen as the movie of the year by AARP The Magazine in its annual Movies for Grown-ups Awards. Meryl Streep was named best actress over 50; Frank Langella was best actor.
In fact, for this competition you have to be 50 years old even to be considered.
Anniversaries, films, and fashion
March 13-22, ????
Mister D: I’m not really sure how old this article is….there is no date. But the cause never is outdated:
