Meryl Streep first Lady of the screen


















I have always loved her in every part she played.
If it had her name in it, I had to see it. I never
saw all her Daughters together they are so
much like her























































loved her look in Prada
































Streep was born Mary Louise Streep in Summit, New Jersey.
Her mother, Mary Wolf (née Wilkinson; 1915 - 2001),

was a commercial artist and former art editor,
and her father, Harry William Streep, Jr.
(1910 - 2003), was a pharmaceutical executive.
She has two brothers, Dana David and Harry William III.
Her patrilineal ancestry originates in
Loffenau,
Germany, from where her second great-grandfather,
Gottfried Streeb, emigrated to the United States,
and where one of her ancestors served as mayor.
Another line of her father's family was from Giswil,
a small town in Switzerland. Her maternal ancestry
originates in Pennsylvania and Rhode Island,
and partly traces back to 17th century immigrants
from England. Her eighth great-grandfather,
Lawrence Wilkinson, was one of the first Europeans
to settle Rhode Island. Streep is also a distant
relative of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania,
and records show that her family were among the
first purchasers of land in the state.
She was raised a
Presbyterian,] and grew up in
Bernardsville, New Jersey, where she attended
Bernards High School. She had many school
friends who were Catholic, and regularly
attended Mass because she loved its rituals.

She received her B.A., in Drama at
Vassar College in 1971 (where she briefly
received instruction from actress Jean Arthur),
but also enrolled as an exchange student at
Dartmouth College for a quarter before
it became coeducational. She subsequently
earned an M.F.A. from Yale School of Drama.
While at Yale, she played a variety of roles onstage,
from the glamorous Helena in
A Midsummer Night's Dream to an
eighty-year old woman in a wheelchair
in a comedy written by then-unknown
playwrights Christopher Durang and Albert Innaurato.

Streep lived with actor
John Cazale
for three years until his death in March 1978.
Streep married sculptor Don Gummer
on September 15, 1978. They have four children:
Henry "Hank" Wolfe Gummer (born November 13, 1979),
Mary Willa "Mamie" Gummer (born August 3, 1983),
Grace Jane Gummer (born May 9, 1986),
and Louisa Jacobson Gummer (born June 12, 1991).
Both Mamie and Grace are actresses.
Hank is a musician who performs under
the name Henry Wolfe.
When asked if religion plays a part in her life,

in an interview in 2009, Streep replied,
"I follow no doctrine. I don't belong to a church
or a temple or a synagogue or an ashram."
Streep does not rule out the possibility that
God exists, “I do have a sense of trying to
make things better. Where does that come from?”
By the way:::: BETTE DAVIS LIKED HER WORK.

March -Racing starts in Florida














I used to love to go to GulfStream Track.
It was so beautiful, The man that bought the track
had owned a large nursery business in south Florida.
That's why the flowers were so gorgeous and everywhere
Looks likes they are fixing up the area.
Hollywood was so run down in the 90's






















My Cousin bought a condo in Hollywood,
I told her go to the Races and casino and
see a Jai-alai






























He looks like my horse Fighting Jimmy,
he won alot of stakes races then was claimed.
