Lovely LENA HORNE, my starting page when I’m going online…

LovelyLenaHorneFor privacy reasons I have erased the logo of my computer, and some other details.

Anyway, that’s what I see when I’m opening my browser: A youthful, a sparkling-eyed Lena Horne whose “HONEYSUCKLE ROSE” (1943) got indexed because sexy Lena stressed the word “suckle” slightly too sultry😉

Well, she may not have been the jazziest of the song birdies, but she had guts.

She spent her whole life in stormy weathers, politically spoken, and this was also her signature song, which she delivered here as no one else could❤
