I liked a number of her songs. I'm sorry to see her pass but, I knew she'd been battling the breast cancer again recently. Still love this one by her, in addition to her Grease songs..................

:lol:......Ivan, I liked several of ONJ's songs as well, and Magic is one of my absolute favorites.  It really is a beautiful song.  And I listen to it and others of her songs on Sirius Satellite Radio, Yacht Rock Radio, Channel 330.  So it would have been enough to simply have THAT memory in my head.

But posted a video of her singing Magic and, Lord have mercy, I wish you hadn't done that.  Her outfit was corny as hell.  Her dancing was stilted, off beat and almost seemed rehearsed. She had a typical white girl flat-a.z.z.  And the audience's reaction was pretty much nil.  :shrug:

So, that's it, no more watching ONJ's video.  I'll just be content listening to her pop tunes, especially my favorite, Have You Ever Been Mellow.  But, again, no videos, please.  :lol:

Perhaps you prefer this one instead? No flat booties, just her singing in the booth. :lol:

She was huge and the Grease phenomenon as well. Few if any of us were involved in that film.


Don't think there was one black person in it. Remember this was the 1970's, where they did not bother putting in a token black person.

Ironically, there ARE Black folks in the movie. But they're all dancers and extras. Take a look at the movie again and you'll see them if you look for them, especially in the dance numbers. ;)

That would be GREAT! I'm expecting this to be the greatest tailgating ever seen at a college football game. LOL! :lol:

Honestly, I can't predict what attendance will be. There's a lot of folks on both sides that are refusing to go, but then there's also tremendous excitement around the game. Heck, I'm flying in from Los Angeles for the game. :lol:

So, here's some follow-up. The young lady who caused the crash is a co-worker of a friend of mine's. She (and my friend) is a traveling nurse. The young lady was working a shift at UCLA's hospital. She and her boyfriend were on the phone while she was at the hospital. Apparently, the boyfriend broke up with her over the phone and she stormed out the hospital, not finishing her shift, and jumped in the car and sped away. Fifteen minutes later she was flying down La Brea.........down that big hill no 80 mph because she was upset and STILL arguing with the boyfriend. Now, an entire family, PLUS two other people are dead because of this dummy. Her name is Nicole Linton she's 37 years old and yes...........................................unfortunately she IS Black. :no:

Bought my flight out of LAX yesterday! Ain't no way I'm missing THIS.  :nod:

Got tickets in section 423, right near the goal line.

Bluedog, where is that tailgate taking place? I might drop in there with my purple and gold polo on. :lol:

This was ABSOLUTELY the right decision. :nod: :clap:

Carnival is the only cruise line I've ever been on and, I've never seen this kind of behavior. :no:

Ivan I know in Louisiana they do those swamp tours on that boat with the big fan [I don't know what they call those obviously]. Cuzzins tried to talk me in to going on one years ago when we did a cuzzins get away. HEYAL-2-DA-NAW!!!  First of all, I don't trust those rednecks. 2nd of all, I don't trust gators, crocs, whateverDeHeyal they are.  :blush:

I've been on numerous swamp tours and have been in the swamp on foot. If you're careful you don't have to worry about Gators. It's when you get careless, that tragedy can happen.

We knew this day would come. Still I have nothing but love for Coach Ross and the kids who are choosing to follow him. They are making decisions which may affect a professional career. While I was hoping they'd  remain I see nothing wrong with following the coach who   helped them attain stardom.  ???

Yea, I have mixed feelings as well. I think about would I have stayed at Morehouse if Coach Hill had left for a bigger school, or stayed committed to finishing at Morehouse. That's a hard decision to make, ESPECIALLY if these kids have dreams of making national and olympic teams. The irony, however, is that they have Allen Johnson coming in as the next coach. He may end up being just as good as coach Ross in the end. He was certainly a better hurdler when the two were competing. Johnson is one of the greatest 110m hurdlers in HISTORY.

Those who live in those areas know to be careful around ponds and rivers. Perhaps he wasn't from there? During all those years I was on South Louisiana I saw plenty of gators and never got close enough to a shore for this to even happen.

So someone pledges $$ to a school not named Howard, Morehouse and Spelman and HBCU grads still not satisfied online. :shrug:

Huh? Where? :shrug:
