Except...the minister seems to be E&T and didn't show up for the rehearsal, or even call or answer her phone.

Her husband has cancer, so I hope everything is OK with them.

MBarnum, I love seeing all the photos, especially with the Spiderbaby actress, all grown up.

And Little Miss (can't remember her name) is either 4 feet tall, or you are 7 feet tall!

CONGRATULATIONS, DR JoseSPiano, on finishing your run today.  You now have MR. John Kander in your corner, which ain't so shabby.   :)

I'm sure you won't miss the daily commute.

You will have to give James the hunky van driver something to remember you by!   ;)

And I'm off to work again.  Heigh ho.

I hope der Brucer remembers that we're driving over to the Millville store after work, so that I can check out their self-service registers.

HEY, DER BRUCER, CONSIDER THIS A REMINDER!

 ;D

Maybe we can find a book on not ending sentences with prepositions.*

Good morning!

Gorgeous day here, much cooler than the last week, and high only in the low 70s, so that's super great!

I really enjoyed the pictures, DR MBarnum. Thank you so much for sharing. It's too bad Ms. Mills' still super-fantastic looking hubby wasn't there with her.

I was really salivating over the ads for DVD before it became a national phenomenon. Originally, DVD was rolled out in only eight cities for a test run (alas, Charlotte wasn't one of them). So, as soon as I could get one, I bought my first DVD player - a Panasonic.

The two James Cagney movies I ordered arrived the other day from Deep Discount, so I may get to one of them tonight if other DVD responsibilities don't get in the way. I'll do THE BRIDE CAME C.O.D. first.

LET'S GIVE IT UP FOR "THE LUDDITES"!


Daily Mail
Quote
The woman who needs a veil of protection from modern life
By VICTORIA MOORE

No, she's NOT a beekeeper. This woman believes that her bizarre headgear can save her from the dangerous electrosmog all around us. Can she possibly be right?
Before knocking on Sarah Dacre's door, I take the precaution of checking my mobile phone. It's switched off, as she has requested.

"Last time someone came to visit," she warns, "I started feeling awfully nauseous. It turned out he had a picture phone with him and had left it switched on. A picture phone!"

She pauses, looking genuinely horrified. Apparently, this type of mobile automatically sends signals to a local base station every nine minutes - "No wonder I felt so sick."

We sit down in the living-room of the airy, north London house that, for the past two years, has been Sarah's refuge from modern life. Save for the absence of a television, it looks ordinary enough.

But beneath the coats of magnolia paint, she points out, the walls are lined with a special paper that contains a layer of tin-foil; and upstairs, the windows are hung with a fine, silvery gauze.

These aren't idiosyncratic decorating decisions, though. All these silvery layers are here for a purpose: to keep the 21st century at bay.

Sarah, 51, is one of a growing band of people who claim to be experiencing extreme - and incapacitating - sensitivity to electrical appliances, as well as to certain frequencies of electromagnetic waves.

"Wi-Fi, or wireless broadband networks, seem to be the worst thing," she says.

"Closely followed by mobile phones - particularly if they're being used in an enclosed space - the base stations of cordless telephones and mobile phone masts.

It looks nice up here right now too, however, the weather reports say some rain may move in later on.  We shall see.

Yes, that is nice.  Now I'm just trying to figure out how much I should keep the "relationship" going.  I really don't expect for Mr. Kander to recommend for jobs, actually, I just want to hang out with him every now and then.  The best times I've had with him so far have been when we haven't talked about the show or musical theatre.

Nope.  -Although it's been fun working my way through the various vendors in the Dining Concourse at Grand Central.

*The nicest discovery was the take out window for The Oyster Bar.  Basically just sandwiches and chowders, but without the stuffiness that I've sometimes encountered in the dining room.

DR der Brucer, the high-end Philip Stein watch is based on this principle...it contains Teslar chips which are supposed to block this 'electrosmog.'

Oprah says it works, so it must be so!

BEAUTY PAGENT

Quote
Tribe Holds Camel Beauty Pageant
By Andrew Hammond
Reuters

GUWEI'IYYA, Saudi Arabia (April 26) - The legs are long, the eyes are big, the bodies curvaceous.

Contestants in this Saudi-style beauty pageant have all the features you might expect anywhere else in the world, but with one crucial difference -- the competitors are camels.

This week, the Qahtani tribe of western Saudi Arabia has been welcoming entrants to its Mazayen al-Ibl competition, a parade of the "most beautiful camels" in the desolate desert region of Guwei'iyya, 75 miles west of Riyadh.
...
"In Lebanon they have Miss Lebanon," jokes Walid, moderator of the competition's Web site. "Here we have Miss Camel."
...
Not to be confused with  Miss Camel Toe

On the subject of CABARET, I really love the new revisal with one exception: Cliff's singing role has been seriously diminished, and I don't understand the rationale behind that at all. Unlike the film where all the songs not done in performance or a public domain (the outdoor scene)were eliminated, the CABARET revisal still retains book numbers for the other characters. Cliff's wonderful songs should also be retained.
