TECHNICAL QUESTION:

Can someone tell me how to make my avatar show up a bit bigger.  The original was 320 x 240 and it showed up tiny.  I tried resizing the width to 110 like most of the other avatars, which gave me 110 x 83.

It still looks the same.  How can I make it bigger without bugging Mr. Mark Bakalor?

What you see is what you get now.  You may notice a lot of us have TINY avatars.  If you use one from the list from the old board, it will be bigger....but if it's a new one....you are a little person.

And thanks to DR JOSE for:

The Soloist info


I remember seeing "The Soloist" on display in various bookstores, but never paid any attention to it.  -I went through a phase where I bought almost any music-related book, and, well, I had to stop that "impulse", so...

When I was in LA last year, I attended a concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall - the LA Phil playing Hindemith and Mahler.  After the concert, I did some browsing in their gift shop.  "The Soloist" was prominently displayed on the counter alongside an announcement that Steve Lopez would be doing a reading and Q&A session the following week.  Who?  Then I started hearing some ladies at the counter talking about the book.  Hmm...

When I got back to New York City, I ended up downloading the audiobook version of it - I had a free Audible.com credit.  I still remember staying up late at night in order to finish "reading" the book.  And there were a couple of times when I found myself missing my subway stop, as well as finding myself crying during a train ride while listening to the story, the true story.

Again... Read the book. :)

DR Jose, I have place a hold on The Soloist by Steve Lopez.  Thank you for the suggestion. 

There is another book with the same name by Mark Salzman (Iron & Silk) which I enjoyed very much.  Mark Salzman used his experiences as a child prodigy of the cello in writing this The Soloist.

Good Afternoon!

24 hours from now I should have a new clothes dryer here at the apartment. Which is a good thing since 48 hours from now, my underwear drawer will be empty.

So am I. Thankfully, if there is a delay, I can always use the machines at the theatre's costume shop which is downtown - so at least I could take a nice stroll during the wash and dry cycles.

I'm up, I'm up - the sun is out but it's REALLY cold out and REALLY super windy and I cannot run when it's this windy - hopefully it will calm down within the hour.  I can do the jog anytime up to eleven and after three.

If anyone would point me to some sort of audio sharing site, I'd put up a few of the Ratings Game themes.  Are those sorts of sites secure or can anyone hear anything?

And speaking of the James Beard Foundation...

They are "live-tweeting" the nominees for this year's awards! :)

http://twitter.com/beardfoundation


Dang, that's two years in a row that Chef Jay Caputo hasn't made the finalists list (Mid-Atlantic).



Maybe you need to join the James Beard Foundation so that you can become a nominator. ;)

*Or write to "Gourmet" or "Bon Appetit" or "Saveur", etc., and have them do a feature story on restaurants in Rehoboth.  An "off-season" feature would be a good angle.  Buzz is buzz.

**Or you could just ask Ruth Reichl what her favorite Delaware restaurants are.  http://twitter.com/ruthreichl/ ;)


A) Not worth the money.

B) Too many of the restaurants shut down during the off months (Jan thru March)

C) I'm not a twitter fan.  Just like I don't like conversations where everyone interrupts each other and speaks too fast for any real intelligence to seep in.  Sound bytes are not sound thinking.  So there!    :-*

A great idea for a show about their wacky adventures with men!

Only we never actually show the men.  We'll call it The Blondes!

A) Agreed.

B) Do Espuma and Porcini stay open year round? -And the story could cover various resort towns, and cover both "in season" and "off season" places to eat.

C) You could start the dialog on Twitter, and then continue it elsewhere.

Espuma and Porcini House have stayed open thru the off season.  Jay is one of the few chefs to do so, however.  I think I noted a week ago how depressing it was, to wander about town and see all the places that were closed, some permanently.
