There are so many options, and we are enjoying giving you lots and lots of choices. Pages
will remain open for different periods of time and will change on a frequent basis so please check them often for new additions or recent changes. Some pages (like "May I Have The Envelope,
Please" ) will remain open because the information provided is
historical in nature and is only updated once a year. We have offered not only great listening selections, but also many other forms of
entertainment. There are youtubes to click on, there are links to a
world of entertainment, and there is all music on the "Music! Music!
Music!" page. From Hollywood and Broadway, to television and movies, it is all here. Check it out.
We are trying to navigate this wonderful site...You should too!

MIKE DEVITA began the website with help from several friends who have moved on to their own things. Mike is happy to share his many files, pictures, and lifelong memories with others who appreciate a long look at the past. If you have questions, just ask. We will do our best to give quick, responsive answers.

Hello all my forum friends.
Now, where is the glue?
A Georgia gal, Carol, like Mike, is a long-time Doris Day fan.When she enjoys something, she likes to share that enjoyment with all her friends, either up close and personal, or online in some of her favorite places: websites, forums, and facebook. As a personal, public relations agent, working tirelessly behind the scenes, there are few better. And what's nicer is that she is an excellent listener. She is loyal, with a capital "L", to her friends and favorites, whether they be icons like Doris Day or friends like Mike. Carol serves our site as the in house Forum Administrator. She would love for you to comment and reply often. Let her know how you feel about our site. But she adds: "A little advice...remember to be nice."
OUR WONDERFUL WEBSITE TEAM is what makes the job of running a website a joy rather than a chore. When we began our original site (SAMPOD4U.COM), Carol and Mike got the ball rolling. Several others have helped along the way. We thank all who have shared their talents with us through the years, and also supported our efforts at producing a site that now has many, many daily visitors, who are always welcome. And like us on facebook,too!
WE ARE ESPECIALLY GRATEFUL TO THOSE FOLKS WHO CONTRIBUTE IDEAS AND CONTENT TO OUR PAGES FROM TIME TO TIME. We are so glad to have you with us.
Y o u, O u r F r i e n d s

Doris Day's devotion to the welfare and protection of animals is legendary. In 1971, she co-foundedActors and Others for Animals. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Doris promoted the annual Spay Day USA, and on a number of occasions, actively lobbied the United States Congress in support of legislation designed to safeguard animal rights. She later founded The Doris Day Animal League. Today, the Doris Day Animal Foundation focuses on funding non-profit causes that need help in their work caring for and protecting animals. Click on the red link above to learn more about the important work being done by the DDAF, and please consider making a donation to support this worthwhile cause. This is the "career" Doris has embraced since her "retirement" from entertainment.
