Alma Cogan sheet musicNow, now. To feel better, cast your eyes and ears upon the bright and lovely Jewish singer from England ~ Alma Cogan ~ the lady who was once asked by Brian Epstein to marry him.

LOTS of beautiful audio and video on Alma's site ~ including one very entertaining video featuring none other than John Lennon, who had a crush on her for awhile!

Hmmm! What is this, the third Shabbat Shmooze mentioning Alma? Hahaa. There ya go.

I might be pretty busy tomorrow. Just for starters, we have a birthday party for three family members and a grocery shopping trip to attend to. So I dunno how internetty I can get.
See ya.
