    Kathy my fellow curmudgeon, loved your 15 things! Can you use your Biotechnology Degee to decipher what species are Jody & Bernie….;). I bet you know all the words to Purple Rain, Little Red Corvette, and my Prince fav….Cream. I saw Prince do a killer version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps on the George Harrison Tribute! Man, he made that guitar cry! Love watching and listening to you doing the news and aggravating Jody and keeping him honest and grounded!
