Happy holidays, my darlings!

My Saint Bernard always carries an ample supply of Maker’s Mark.  This morning Van and I used a little to make eggnog french toast topped with bourbon cranberry compote.  This proves my theory that everything is better with bourbon. Cheers!

GRETA GARBO: 1920’s-1950’s
“THE UNFORGETTABLE FACE”
Congratulations!! You were the legendary Greta Garbo. A woman of profound genius and incredible talent, you took Hollywood by storm. You never relied on overt sexuality to carry you to stardom, and instead stunned audiences world-wide with your intense, vividly honest roles. Your perfectly proportioned face and large, expressive eyes captured people’s hearts and minds. You were very meticulous, concentrated, and purposeful with your acting career. Trained in Sweden, you became the silent film star of the twenties and progressed with the decades. You were nominated for over ten academy awards and received the Lifetime Achievement Award. Your legendary role was in Camille where you immortalized the most heart-wrenching and honest death scene caught on film. Outside of work, you were very reclusive and anti-social. You controled every film you did, and picked every lead male counterpart. Only a few men could match your presence on screen, making your lead male the most difficult to cast. You retired from film upon wanting privacy and seclusion. You never allowed anyone to unveil your very mysterious aura. You left one of the biggest legends behind, and remain an inspiration to this day.
