Already a thread. You think DL would have missed that one?

But what do I do now?

I like this thread better than the other one. There are comfortable chairs here, and the plants in the window are very soothing.

Not really, R3

Be good and considerate and wish to Mrs Jane Connell bon voyage R4 and all the other cynical bastards. All the other words are redundant.

There's just something about this thread.

I like it.

For almost half a century, Jane Connell counted among the busiest character actresses on Broadway.

'There's no question that theater has changed through the years. The one thing that bothers me is that so many of today's young actors come from television and have not been taught theater technique. They don't realize when they're upstaging you. It's not done out of meanness or trickery. They just think there's a camera over their shoulder that is filming the other actor. But I don't complain about it. I just look out front and deliver the lines.' -Jane Connell

'I was born a character person. I was always eccentric, never a conventional beauty. I grew up in the Depression, the youngest of four kids. I wanted to make people laugh, because making my family laugh helped us forget our concerns. And I found that I could do it.' -Jane Connell

I lived, I lived (until I died, that is).

I hope the mortician has sixteen egg whites and a small chisel.
