Introduction my tastes are eclectic, to say the least. I love the 40s and 50s, pre-code Hollywood, Broadway, crooners and songbirds, day dressses and red lips and nails; everything Grandma misses, I prefer. Lucille Desiree Ball has saved me from the throngs of death. She's constantly on my television and in my heart. I would love to get to know as many of you incredible people as I can. I've been an incessant blog reader/lurker for awhile now but, expect that to change dramatically as I allow my thoughts and opinions to pour forth without inhibitions on this, my baby blog, and in comments throughout the blogosphere. I hope you won't mind. :-) If any of you might like to get to know me better; if I spark your interest, or you perhaps, find me endearing (!!, please feel free to take a look at and friend request my personal MySpace or, if you prefer, my Twitter .
