Coming and Goings

Show biz as you know is a tricky place to work. If you happen to be employed - consider yourself lucky - and protect your earnings. I've never read people from any other industry where there is such a big turn-over - even in production, sales and advertising.

It was expected by my friends who work at NBC news that Brian Williams would be out - probably for good. The shock for many was like finding out your mother cheated on your father. Is anyone 100% pure? Does everyone make mistakes ... let me count the ways ...

Jon Stewart has decided to sign off on The Daily Show ... (watch this CNN video). I was a guest on the show twice and it was fun. Friends who work at Comedy had already told me. Good luck Jon.

I'm sure you also know that David Letterman is leaving in May.

Singer Whitney Houston died three years ago on February 11, 2015. Today, her only child Bobbi Kristina Brown remains in a coma ... but you've read about that.

Let's get to some fun stuff and birthdays today ....

Auguste Mariette was the foremost Egyptologist of his
generation - founder of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
He visited temples and befriended a Bedouin tribe,

From my first collection of Egyptian antiquities,

I recognized that

actress, film director, and producer. Filmography

A relationship isn't going to make me survive. It's the cherry on top.

The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.

True love brings up everything - you're allowing a mirror to be held up to you daily.

The ultimate is finding a place where you have no inhibitions,
nothing to hide, where you can learn with one another.
