Unequivocally, hands down, beyond a shadow of a doubt, and without rival, Sammy Davis, Jr. was and still is the greatest entertainer of all time. Sammy sang, danced, starred in movies and Broadway plays and his own television show. Sammy was a comedian with impeccable timing and an extraordinary mimic who could impersonate anyone. Sammy did all this in addition to playing every instrument in the band, well, very well, without ever having taken a lesson. Triple threat, hmph. They don’t even have a category for the threat Sammy Davis, Jr. was. Sammy conquered every entertainment medium we have and he did it with class and a huge smile.
Sammy Davis, Jr. would have been years 90 old in December 2015. I don’t know why we don’t talk about him more but we can’t help but remember him. When you take a look at these videos, you’ll understand why. The second one was recorded just months before he died of cancer.
Sammy began his career at age 3 as a tap dancer and to the day he died, his first love was always tap. We salute Mr. Sammy Davis, Jr., Mr. Entertainment, for his great feats!
Good Feet, Great Feats!
The theme for the 2015 National I LOVE My Feet Day! is Good Feet, Great Feats!, because we can accomplish more of the things we want to do when our feet are healthy. Take a look at these impressive Feats and if you have some you’d like to share, let me know. Enjoy!
Ms. Misty Copeland

Can you guess her good foot care tip? In June 11, 2014 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Ms. Copeland had her feet soaking in a bucket of ice water.
