    Assunto: “1960 – Morre em Lisboa, Ausenda de Oliveira (n. 20 Abr 1888 em Cantanhede). Actriz portuguesa.”

    Olá,
    Ao entrar no vosso “site” do qual achei extremamente interessante, deparei com a rubrica “on this day in History – Aug 16 (Agosto 16, 2005, provavelmente esta última data terá sido da inserção desta rubrica).

    Relembramos Pessoas, Passagens da nossa História e que rapidamente ficamos com uma noção breve mas eficaz desse dia. Os meus sinceros Parabéns.

    Reparei que AUSENDA DE OLIVEIRA, minha bisavó, consta desta lista. Grande senhora que muito contribuiu para a cultura portuguesa, à sua época, (Cinema, Teatro, Operetas, Zarzuelas, etc.), atravessou o Atlântico levando a nossa cultura até ao Brasil.

    Por tal e sem querer abusar de vossa gentileza ao lerem o meu comentário, poderei contribuir humildemente, para o enriquecimento desta rubrica, caso acharem por bem e de interesse, sublinhando também o seu nome AUS(Z)ENDA D(‘)E OLIVEIRA, pois já poderão direccioná-la para http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auzenda_de_Oliveira, onde constam vários dados desta notável actriz e com fotografia, juntando-a assim às outras personalidades e, facilitando igualmente a sua consulta, para quem visita este espaço tão agradável.

    Estando certa que visitarei mais vezes este espaço cibernético, bastante leve e agradável e, que corresponderão ao pedido, os meus cumprimentos,
    mariadimas
