So, ok, last night I was in a weird mood, making weird posts, and laughing at old Olivia Newton-John movies.
In the cold light of day, I’m still laughing at the movie clip, but, thought I should make nice.
Once upon a time, back in a time called the 1970s and 1980s, Ms Newton-John was A Big Deal. Pretty, perky, and a beautiful voice. I was a big fan. I will even admit to being one of the few who actually paid money to see Xanadu in a movie theatre the week it was released. And, I even saw her in concert (the second concert I ever went to).
So, Nostalgia requires that I say something nice after a bit of late night ONJ humor.

Just in case you think I’m making it up, about still sounding good … compare the above version to the version below, from a 1982 concert video, more than thirty years ago:
