This little lady has real talent, reminds me



For some reason she makes me think of Keely Smith, her
style and voice.

She has some voice. I am so impressed. With the name Gaga
I just thought she was another no talent pop star.

I am sick of the young  new pop singers, with no voices.



Louie Prima and Keely.
so great.

a gift for 2018. Lady Gaga

Stay warm , be healthy and love one another.

Things ya didn't know about Christmas

dek
From 1659 to 1681, showcasing one's 
holiday spirit in Boston could cost you 
a fine of as much  as five shillings.  That's right 
 Christmas used to be illegal
It's somewhat surprising, then, 
That the same puritanical minds also created 
the first American batch of eggnog at 
Captain John Smith's 1607  Jamestown settlement.
(The word nog comes from the word grog
that is, any drink made with rum.) 
Christmas was so inconsequential in early 
America that after the Revolutionary War, 
Congress didn't even bother taking the day 
off to celebrate the holiday,  deciding instead to hold 
its first session on Christmas Day, 
1789. It took almost a century for Congress to 
proclaim it  a federal holiday.
Thank Prince Albert
and Queen Victoria for our Christmas Trees.
December 1848: The Royal Christmas tree is admired by Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their children.








THERE IS HOPE FOR
 HUMANITY!
Five months into the first 
World War, troops along 
the Western front took a
Christmas Eve break from fighting to sing carols to one
 another across the battlefield. The following morning, 
German soldiers emerged from the trenches and began 
to approach Allied troops while  calling out 
"Merry Christmas" in English. 
Luckily, it wasn't a trick; 
dozens of British fighters came out to greet them and 
shake hands, some even exchanging cigarettes as gifts. 
Later dubbed the Christmas Truce of 1914, 
it was one of the last examples of wartime chivalry.

God Bless us all. Merry Christmas.
