Re: Streisand Sets Another Record

I agree wholeheartedly with Mike on this one. I cannot *stand* Barbra's singing - over the top - overly emotional - overly overly. Ack. But she's a very good comedian and I love her politics.

Re: Doris Day: General Discussion 3

I agree with Ray. I believe that the photos of Doris in the Globe are for real and have not been doctored. I think she looks great for her age. She is walking unassisted. She is walking upright and not bent over or in a wheelchair. I think those clothes are her clothes.

Re: NOT FORGOTTEN!

Mike~
Thank you very much for what you are doing. The people on Twitter are listening to the same Doris songs over and over and over because they mention what songs of hers they listen to and it's the same 5. We can all help you, if you need something. What a great project for Doris!!

Bryan~
Been a while since I've seen the entire convention footage. I don't remember any woman in powder blue. Connie Edney was in lavender sweater (at least on my screen) and she was assisting Doris with the gifts. Mike Doyle was helping her with signing several photos.

One way Doris' music affects the world

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2V3uYjH ... popt00us16

Very touching video from across the world. However, they call Doris "the late Doris Day." The presenter of the video needs to change that but I cannot figure out where to write to him/her. Anyone?

Re: The Doris Day Convention video now on YouTube

Thanks, Diane, for your kind words. It's Doris who should take the bow in these videos. As you can see, she is absolutely giving, loving and a delight to be around as those who have written about her can confirm.

I am a bit miffed, however, for him taking Doris to task about not working harder at her singing career as there are good reasons for that. First of all, Marty's death. Then the start of her TV show...
