Good morning, all! I slept late and I will shortly run down to Toyland tyo use the piano. Last night was a lot of crazy dreams, most of which have now run out of my mind. I remember that in one I was working at the Miami University Lbrary and in another I was working at The Drama Book Shop; I have vague memories of a subway or train as well.

Today my goal is to put onto paper a couple of more songs for this Appalachian project and to determine the keys of the recorded things the director has sent as mp3 files. I've got a lot of ideas for revisions to "The West Virginia Mining Disaster," so I guess I'll be playing with that number for a cople of days to come.

I also have to take apart my EILEEN vocal score and break it down by singer, so I can have books assembled for the chorus and soloists. I now have two  ore numbers to proofread.

TOD:
   DVD:  LOVE FOR LYDIA final disc, a couple of operas, ROMAN HOLIDAY
   CD:  Appalachian folk music, Offenbach, Guy Haines, Liz Callaway
   VCR: the usual smut

Friday morning greetings!  Richard and I left here a little after 4 yesterday for a 7pm program at Cincinnati Art Museum, thinking we had plenty of time to do several errands and have dinner on the way.  Traffic was so bad that we only accomplished one errand - NOT dinner - and made it to the Machu Picchu lecture just in time.  The program was quite interesting and very well-attended and our trip home was much smoother.  I just don't want to make a habit of eating dinner at 10pm, though.

DR FJL, re: Ashton Kutcher being the replacement in 2 1/2 Men.

DR Jane - The closest we'll get to Machu Picchu is attending Middfest this fall.  Peru is 2011's featured country and my friend Deborah Schultz has created an excellent grant-funded program on Peru's archaeological treasures.  The program includes last night's lecture, the one we attended last month on UNESCO's World Heritage Program, and a fabulous line-up of speakers Sept. 30-Oct. 1 here in Middletown.  They also launched a booklet of essays last night edited by one of my book group friends.  I'll get another copy and send it to you and Keith.

HERE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5OFvvgdEgk) is Dr. Richard Burger, last night's lecturer, along with his wife Lucy Salazar.  His lecture last night was about the artifacts dispute.

As someone with an autistic nephew (and whose father--Betsy's brother--is an internationally recognized expert MD on the subject), may I just say MERCURY RISING is a steaming pile of crap (technical term).  :)

In other breaking news, today marks the one year anniversary since we moved into the new house!  We closed in February but didn't officially move until we were closer to the end of the school year.

Breaking news from Variety:

Ashton Kutcher has officially joined the cast of Warner Bros.-produced CBS comedy "Two and a Half Men," as the show moves on from the Charlie Sheen era.
Production on the ninth season of the series -- the first without Sheen -- will begin in the summer, with plans to have the show ready for a fall re-launch.

"I can't wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented team, and I believe we can fill the stage with laughter that will echo in viewers' homes," Kutcher said. "I can't replace Charlie Sheen, but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!"

Said showrunner Chuck Lorre: "We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family. Added to that is the deep sigh of relief knowing that our family stays together. If I was any happier, it'd be illegal."

we watched in the beginning but there was never any growth to the characters & the "jokes" stayed the same.  over the years we have caught, accidentally, bits & pieces all of which were the same.  the older the guys, including the kid got, it just seemed more pathetic.

When JR and I were able to get the Lois Kibbee papers on Frances from the University of Washington, one of the things that made me LOL was Lois bragging to Frances and Jean Ratcliffe that she was able to "pound out" 1,000 words a day on Frances' ostensible autobiography.  I pound out 1,000 words before I finish my first cup of coffee in the morning.  :)

Maybe if Lois had been able to "pound out" 2,000 words a day we wouldn't have had the Scientology revisionism, let alone Jean Ratcliffe's self-aggrandizing work.

Production on the ninth season of the series -- the first without Sheen -- will begin in the summer, with plans to have the show ready for a fall re-launch.

Said showrunner Chuck Lorre: "We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family. Added to that is the deep sigh of relief knowing that our family stays together. If I was any happier, it'd be illegal."



And now I believe DR FJL's head is exploding. ;)

I did like how Ashton Kutcher - a.k.a. @aplusk - announced his new gig via Twitter yesterday afternoon:

"What is the square root of 6.25?"



-Or maybe his publicist came up with that? ::)

DR Jane - The closest we'll get to Machu Picchu is attending Middfest this fall.  Peru is 2011's featured country and my friend Deborah Schultz has created an excellent grant-funded program on Peru's archaeological treasures.  The program includes last night's lecture, the one we attended last month on UNESCO's World Heritage Program, and a fabulous line-up of speakers Sept. 30-Oct. 1 here in Middletown.  They also launched a booklet of essays last night edited by one of my book group friends.  I'll get another copy and send it to you and Keith.

HERE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5OFvvgdEgk) is Dr. Richard Burger, last night's lecturer, along with his wife Lucy Salazar.  His lecture last night was about the artifacts dispute.

I do not own stock in CBS, nor am I great fan of TWO AND A HALF MEN, but I have seen the show on several occasions.  I don't believe that it is any better or any worse than the majority of sticoms currently on the networks.

Back from a fun dinner at Islands, where I had my usual bacon cheeseburger which, instead of being called the Big Wave with bacon and cheese, is now called the Malibu.  I had fries, as well.  Then we went to the thirteen-year-old's apartment - previous to dinner I'd figured out a first pass at a show sequence, so we sang through it in that order and I'll be hornswoggled if the damn thing didn't just work.  And boy is it a fun and VERY diverse show.  Patter still to come obviously, but that gets much easier when the structure of the show has been set.  Her grandma was visiting from Canada, and she had a good time listening.  Boswell hasn't finished writing out the charts for the songs that we did arrangements for, but we should have those soon.  Melody had made yummilicious brownies of which we all partook.  And then she put in some glow in the dark vampire fangs - that was pretty funny, actually.

Good Evening!

And as Friday the 13th winds down here on the East Coast...

Did anyone have any bad luck today?

Actually, yesterday my car started making a fluttering noise.  When I drove home last night, it was pretty loud, but otherwise ran well.  None of the dashboard lights lit up.  I checked my oil when I got home (I hadn't had it changed in quite a while ::)) and it was very, very low.  I decided that I should get the oil changed in the morning, but as I was driving I figured that the noise couldn't be related to low oil, so I stopped at a local automotive place.  They were able to look at my car right away and it turns out that a belt had split.  They had to get a belt from another store, but they had it all fixed in about an hour.  So, I actually had some good luck today. :)

Yesterday, I also (finally) made an appointment to have my car serviced at the dealer on Tuesday.  Even though my car isn't under warrenty any more, I still take it to the dealer because they've done all the work and know what needs to be done.  I get it serviced once a year, after I get my income tax refund.
