Last night I was opening a jar of pickled herring, and while removing the sealed protective cover (as it is a well known fact that people try to poison pickled herring ---apparently), I spilled quite a bit of pickled herring juice on the floor of my kitchen.  The house was MOST fragrant for many hours.  OY!


I believe that "sealed protective cover" is more of a "Are you sure you want eat this?" cover.

Steven Suskin's book on Broadway orchestration.

In which, our modest DR elmore3003 neglects to mention, he receives two noteworthy citations!     :)

I guess your copy arrived from Amazon. I am loving this book so far!

DR Jose, did you take your laptop and can you watch DVDs on it? I'd be happy to send you this porn film I'd been meaning to give  you for Christmas and forgot!

What happened in 1900 that made it so interesting?

Well, it was the start of the Twentieth Century! And you know where that unfortunate movement led.

Technically the 2oth Century started in the year 1901. But what's a year or two?

*I am such the child of food-service parents - and amateur food stylist: as I was walking by the salad and prepared food bars, I would occasionally "pretty up" the trays by giving them a good stir and/or rearranging the food so that everything was being properly cooled or warmed.  ;)

Can we say "anal retentive"? ;D

Well, that too.  But it's all in the name of Food Safety.

Just had an e-mail that I somehow knew would be coming - I was waiting for it, and it arrived.  From a lawyer asking me why I thought I could put out That Man From Rio without obtaining the rights from the recording rights holders - said lawyer representing the estate of the composer.  Every time I put out a new soundtrack release I hear from someone and it's because there are two people who are trying to cause me grief on every release.  Each time, I respond and I never hear anything again.  This one was especially fun, though - I specifically left out of the press release any mention of how I was doing the soundtrack, knowing that one of these two creeps would do their dirty business.  I gleefully answered the e-mail, suggesting that the missive might be better sent to Universal France and its producer of soundtracks who think that just because they get tapes from composers' estates that somehow gives them the "rights" to put out the CD.  Universal France put out three selections from the Rio soundtracks, which was all they could get from the composers' cupboard, which, according to the booklet notes, was bare for Rio.  Wonder why?  Could it be that all the original elements were with the RIGHTS HOLDERS?  Which is how I got them.  By licensing them.  From MGM Music, Inc.  Oops.  Think I'll hear back?  I told him that any further correspondence should go to them, but somehow I don't think they want to open THAT can or worms.  He wanted an immediate response and boy did he get one.  Contracts are wonderful things.

I would think the excitement over the change from 1899 was perhaps not as intense as the millenia madness about the transition from 1999 to 2000, but it's the next century to me.

Is there a drug or something to help people over this hump?? 

I've heard of frequent business travelers using melatonin to ease the effects of jet lag, but I have no idea if it really works.

The first night I take a mild tranquiler to get to sleep.  Sometimes it takes two nights to regulate my body.

As for Daylight Savings, I'm fine.  I seem to do better with the Spring change than in the Fall.

Well, I am definately not going to Los Angeles in April as planned. And I just can't afford it right now. And I was looking so foward to seeing Mamie Van Doren in the flesh.

Maybe you can go to Seattle instead.

Yea!  You'd much rather see Tom Wopat in person than Mamie Van Doren, anyway! ;D

Well, the good news is that we won't have to be taking as big of a pay cut now...insteads of 16 furlough days between March and June, we now only have to take 6.

Sadly, my car needs 4 new tires and my refrigerator is making the most unpleasant noises...so I see some big payments in the near future.

I do wish that I had not already purchased my plane tickets, however.

That is because, just like everyone in my family, you didn't listen when I said to wait ;)  Can you put the tickets on hold & use them at a later date for a fee?  I'm really sorry about your tires and frig.

Me: Good morning; (Name of church).
Telephone solicitor: May I speak to whoever is in charge there?
Me: God isn't able to take phone calls. But you don't need to go through me to talk to Him.
Telephone solicitor: Oh. Um. Ok.  (hangs up)

I love this Laura!!

That's hysterical!! ;D

It sure it.  I got Keith to laugh too :)

DR Jeanne, as long as the Husky doesn't decide to take off with you attached you should be ok ;D  Sherlock has been very, very good lately.  At least he had until this morning when I had to let go of the leash to protect myself.  Before I broke my wrist I could hang on to him.

Thanks to all who sent vibes.

Yes, I am the PACK LEADER. My rule is this: when I walk him, we go at MY pace. That means nice and steady and NO CHASING. He--his name is Bandit--gets the steady part, but not the NO CHASING part. He's good with other dogs, but loves to chase cats and other critters. today he wanted to chase a plastic bag that was blowing in the wind. "No, Bandit. That's a plastic bag." Tonight we walked at dusk and saw TWO rabbits! The first rabbits I've seen here. Of course he wanted to chase them, too. I use the word "NO!", but maybe that special sound Jose mentioned works better.
