Betty MacDonald's and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's birthday cake

Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

Betty MacDonald fan club ESC meeting has various aspects and we got very interesting suggestions.
Did you ever see The Egg and I movie with Claudette Colbert and Fred McMurray, Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride as Ma and Pa Kettle? I hope Betty MacDonald fan club founder Wolfgang Hampel will include in his updated Betty MacDonald biography Betty's thoughts about Hollywood, the movie The Egg and I and the Ma and Pa Kettle sequels.

Betty MacDonald fan club member Astrid mentioned the idea of voting for the best songs in ESC history. Astrid, that's a very good idea and we should do this during our international Betty MacDonald fan club ESC voting 2014 in April. As French I don't want to play the national card but France deserves to win ESC because we are waiting for a victory such a long time. The last one was in 1977. Therefore twelve points for France, please! Merci bien!

It wouldn't be a bad idea to work on a Betty MacDonald fan club DVD presenting Betty MacDonald's and Mary Bard Jensen's international books. They had been translated in many languages.
Do you know when we celebrate Betty MacDonald's and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's birthday? We should bake them a very special birthday cake. The two world famous unique ladies deserve our honor very much.

Betty MacDonald would make fun of dictators like this but living under a dictator doesn't mean fun of course. Just the opposite! At first I thought it was only a rather bad joke.  Listening to these news I can't believe we are living in 2014. Although 2014 is only a baby we had lots of very sad news so far. My deep thougths are with the people in Ukraine and with the very sad relatives of the missing plane.
