Dang. I think my blood sugars shot up just looking at those cakes.

Happy Birthday, Tina Turner. You were the surprise opening act to Lionel Richie- you were the one who rocked the night wiht a question- What's love got to do with it? The answer, everything.

Did you ever see the movie about Tina Turner's life? Poor gal she really had it rough married to Ike. Glad she left him and was a success by herself.
Yes, love has everything to do with everything. :)

I was surprised you hadn't seen that cute turkey video. I saw it years ago and even posted it on my page one year. I love it but mainly because I love love disco music! :)I could listen to it all day. I don't know why it isn't popular anymore. It had everything.

Happy Patriots/Jets watching day! :)

XO Trisha
