I met and spent several hours with her and two of her band-mates. Totally informal setting - they asked to join me at my table in a crowded hotel bar. We just sat and talked and had a few drinks. She was absolutely charming and completely down to Earth.

I’ve seen her a couple of times live and she puts on a great show.

Let’s face it, no Brit rocker will look normal.

“Sweet Dreams Are Made of This” and “Would I Lie to You?”

great songs, powerful voice and wonderful backup music.

She still has great pipes. Now, about that hair -— I liked the old Annie Lennox of the Eurythmics.

I remember her very well back then, top notch singer, had the OP mentioned what band she was with it would have been better.

My summary of the Olympics?

Totally sucked, I recorder almost every single hour from NBC every day.so when I came home from work I would then play back the days recordings, so a 8 hour or so session would only give me about an hours worth of decent coverage, and I skipped every sing interview and side story, all I saw was fast moving images.

I honestly hope that when the next one comes around I will have a satellite dish that will get me live coverage from other than I suspect another NBC operation.

Also it would interesting just how many millions of Americans did the same thing, recorded the shows and then just viewed their particular sports, I skipped running, rowing, wrestling, basketball and soccer.

I enjoyed the diving, swimming, the BMX, even the equestrian events, and I missed a lot like shooting, discus, shot put and javelin because NBC showed almost nothing of those events.

So fondly I recall the Sydney games a complete and wonderful Olympics.

And here is looking ahead to Rio, at least by then Obama will just be a bad Total Rekall episode upon America.

Actually, the 'black and red' symbolizes the 'labor radical syndicalist' movement.. This is 0bama's ideology and that's why ALL of the 0bama's family wore black/red at his 2009 Inauguration party. A MAJOR signaling as to what he had/has in store for America.

A 'radical syndicalism' of the type where labor unions control all:

I won't dignify that with a full reply.
I'll just say I missed a lot of the good stuff because I flat out refuse to watch 500 hours of "beach" volleyball, punks on mountain bikes, the sound of pots and pans being beaten, and rap.

Did I mention that I loved every minute of the Mars Curiosity news conferences? Some I watched several times.
NCIS marathons are good, too.
