  1. All of these incredibly talented people have given every audience extraordinary entertainment, by giving of themselves. Each one deserves an Oscar! They should have been given an Oscar for lifetime achievement! And it should be done a.s.a.p., before they leave us, and be able to enjoy the products of their works. All of the ladies proved how beautiful womanhood can be physically, and they are still very lovely to me. And the men aren’t bad either! Thanks for sharing with their admirers.
