  1. Howard and Bernie are first!

    I always liked Jerry Brown, despite his notorious tightfistedness. Linda Ronstadt tells a funny story in her book. She was on her way out the door to dinner at Rosemary Cluney's house when Jerry turned up and said he was hungry. So, Linda phoned to ask Rosemary if she could bring him along. Rosemary said she could. Then the problem arose of what Jerry could bring. He spotted a box of roses on Linda's hall table and said, "Oh, we can bring these." Linda protested, "But those are my roses." He took the card out and said, "Now they're Rosemary's roses." It's funny to read about but, if that were my boyfriend, I'd have been, er, unhappy. But, you go out with a skinflint, I guess you get used to his ways.

  2. Hot, hot, hot. That is all.
