"Alway's seems to happen at this time of year"

Huge numbers of people die at Christmas time every year; it just happens that sometimes one or two of them are famous, so you hear about it.

She was only a pussy cat with a big purrr, but what a purrr.

Perhaps time to bring out my old cd's/dvd's!.

It would appear that we are 'getting on a bit' for we remember that famous purr and that intense look she had when singing - she managed to be sexy without titivating the audience by revealing flesh and the use of obscenities - not that I'm grumbling about those that do - just saying that she was special.

The lady certainly used a minimal of flesh and used it to great here

Thanks for the undeserved cold shower. Regardless of your reply to the time of her death, the members were obviously expressing honest opinions.
Death of a well known and well loved artiste at this time of the year is a rather poignant thing. I would suggest you leave well alone.

Don't be so ridiculous. I gave nobody an "undeserved cold shower", I was simply pointing out to someone else that although it might seem that famous people die at Christmas time it is merely a coincidence.

Perhaps it's you who should 'leave well alone', and not involve yourself in something that wasn't addressed to you.

I don't believe the thread title needed what we used to term a "snot drop".

Eartha Kitt had a long and mostly fulfilled life style and, through the medium of records and other recording methods, her considerable talent will be available to us for many years to come.
