Well, you've read the notes, the notes were hopefully noteworthy, and now it is time for you to post until yesterday's cows come home.

Word of the day,  how would it apply to typed language on the internet?

Topic of the Day:  hmm...that's going to take some thought.  The first thing that comes to mind (whether anyone else wants it, or if it's even worth it) is the soundtrack to "At Long Last Love."

Thanks!  Only five performances (and one pick-up rehearsal) left. :D

The two Toonful CDs are wonderful, but the first one is pure magic - just one of those times when the stars were in the right position and everything went perfectly, save for a really bad drummer, but we fixed him up pretty good, too, thanks to Vinnie.

I was just alerted to what looks to be a fantastic DVD (and Blu-Ray) from Japan - a concert of Joe Hisaishi's 25 years doing scores for Studio Ghibli.  I love Hisaishi's music and this looks like a swell set, so I ordered the Blu-Ray which looks to be region free.

Good morning, all! I have a morning with the McGlinnventory and then I am back here for more work on Liz Callaway's charts. I would prefer not to go today, but I would rather go in this morning and take Thursday off to finish up, if I need to.

DR George, thanks for the article on Michelle. I had no idea she was going through all of that. She really is a wonderful lady, and I wish her all thr best.

TOD: Most of the recordings I've wanted to see transferred have been, although HarperCollins is letting the Camden catalog rot. I would love to see all of their spoken word albums, especially the plays, released. It's criminal.

I know that you've said that Universal is a "hard nut to crack," but I would love to see Kritzerland release the score of RUN OF THE ARROW by Victor Young.

If needed, I will send you a nutcracker.

Do you still have Michelle's recordings?

Perhaps you can put together "A BEST OF" cd and profits can go to Breast Cancer research?

I was sure you were going to say ALL IN LOVE!

I have never forgiven Anita Darian for that maudlin rendition of "Bill" on the Columbi8a studio cast SHOW BOAT with Barbara Cook and John Raitt.

Okay, off to the East Side. I wrote two pages of score in the last hour.

Tuesday morning greetings!  Today I have to attend 2 (count 'em, 2) bored board meetings.  This afternoon, in Dayton, with the grantwriters, and this evening, here in Middletown, with my AAUW friends.  When today is over, I can concentrate the next 2 days on getting ready to go to Chicago for ALA.

My poor niece! After her weekend burn ordeal now her knee is all banged up. When my sis went to pick her up from daycare yesterday her knee was worse than her burns.

Apparently some girl accidently knocked her over and there was blood everywhere. And unfortunately the band-aids at the daycare hurt like heck to take off. She didn't cry during the fall, or the spraying of the knee. But she screamed when my sis took off that band-aid.

At least the burn is old news now.

DR MattH, there is A LOT more Phillip3 on Tuesday's US Y&R (no rafe and adam although they are previewed for US wed).

I thought tuesday's show was one of the best in a while (although last friday's was good too).
