Mister D: I’ve always had a thing for manners…maybe it’s a southern thing, adult thing, maybe we’re just anal…I don’t know…I even talk about it on one of my online profiles which are dwindling day by day by my own hands…look up a book on etiquette! The over influx of social media is no excuse for rudeness! BUT if I was ever rude to you, believe me when say “you deserved it!”
Well, this is the jukebox where we hear other artistâ€™s versions of songs that Bette has performed and/or recorded at one point or another in her career. But with this playlist we get 2 songs specifically written for Bette Midler back in the 70’s by legendary Who leader, guitarist impressario, Pete Townshend ~ what a treat! Also you’ll hear songs performed by Barry Manilow, Natalie Cole, Helen Reddy and many more….so settle down somewhere cool and bask in the glow of this wonderful playlist. Now that was a mouthful!!

NEW YORK – “Did youÂ think I was going to be odd?”Â asks BettÂ» (she says, “Bet”)Â Midler.
“I’m not, am I? Do I lookÂ awful? Do you think I’mÂ schizzy?”
These are tough questionsÂ for an interviewer, sitting inÂ her New York grey apartment,
d r i n k i n g grapefruitÂ juice. Bette is curled into anÂ overstuffed chair that is covered wit an American flagÂ and asking her live-in boyfriend and her backup bassÂ player Michael if he hasÂ melted her third coffee pot ofÂ the year by leaving it on theÂ burner too long.

When screenwriter Nora Ephron found out about her husbandâ€™s affair her response was typically withering.
â€œHeâ€™d have sex with a Venetian blind,â€ shrugged the romcom queen behind When Harry Met Sally, who died this week.
Mister D: Pete Townshend of The Who later wrote 2 rock songs for Midler that never saw the light of day! The songs are â€œAnd I Movedâ€ and â€œYouâ€™re So Cleverâ€œ. In the liner notes of the CD,Â Scooped, Townshend Â states that he submitted the songs to producer Chris Thomas to give her. However, Pete thought that Chris was unimpressed and never gave them to her.Â

HOW TO WEAR WHITE JEANS WITHOUT BECOMING A STAIN MAGNET
Stylelist | By CHRISTINA ANDERSON
Posted: 06/28/12 08:36 AM ET
White jeans are a summertime staple. They are crisp, clean and go with just about anything. Pair them with an oxford shirt (collar popped, of course) for a day out wine tasting, or wear them for an evening dinner with aÂ cute peplum topÂ (with heels,Â bien sur).
Some people aren’t fans of white pants. We get it — they can be too sheer, or are just simply a magnet for stains. The key is to find the right pair.Â Choose a style that suits your shape, whether it’s cropped, bootcut or wide-leg, and then take some precautions: Take them to a tailor and have the pockets cut out and sewn down to avoid sloppy bulges, and opt for a sturdier fabric that isn’t translucent. Lastly,Â carry a stain pen in your bagÂ to treat any marinara mess as soon as it happens.
