1. I just realized she beat the 'curse'

We lost Estelle in 2009, Bea in 2010, Rue in 2011, and if there had been a curse it would have been Betty in 2012. Yea Betty.

2. watched "pioneers of television: funny ladies" on pbs the other night, and they covered her

quite a bit. I loved her comment "I am the luckiest old broad on two feet"

happy birthday, betty.

8. I saw that, too, and learned....

Her entire career was television (starting with experimental TV in 1939!), with just a bit of radio. Most of the movies she made were 'made for television', in her later years. She blazed the path for the television pioneers.

7. Happy birthday

(won't ask how old, but I think you have to be older than 18 to participate here, no?)

11. I'm 3.166 times 18 years old. But I'm young enough to be heading out the door on a bike ride.

A rare ride. Like having the entire world to myself.

Thanks.
