Well, you've read the notes, the notes were rousing and had adventure, and now it is time for you to post until the rousing cows come home.

Yesterday, I purchased a tower fan.  Had to go to two Home Depots before I found one.

ASK BK

SPOILER SPOILER SPOLIER






I have been rereading Writer's Block. I have finished chapter 7 and then the next chapter (one) begins with "I was stuck. I had written the first EIGHT chapters..."  Was this an editing error? If not what was the reason for putting chapter 8 after chapter one?

Sorry to have been E&T for a day and a half or so.  The new Sept. 15th deadline for partnerships that are on extension (really, a majority do go on extension) has made the Sept/Oct tax season stretch back a little into August. It's likely to remain so from now on, but that's really OK, since it might spread out over an extra few weeks the intense pressure of the previous Labor-Day-to-Oct-15th mini-tax-season.

Good morning, all! I believe I once began watching "Endless Love" and gave up. I have no idea what happens after the first 30 minutes or so. It's my memory that Zefferrelli in his memoirs says he discovered Martin Hewett parking cars. He has fascinating but oblique things to say about several of his leading men.

Today, I tackle MOST HAPPY FELLA; my goal is to finish up the bass part, begin the Appendix numbers, hopefully finish them tomorrow, and liesurely type up the notes. I slept poorly again last night and i am quite groggy this morning; my left arm and shoulder are acting up and I have no idea if it's a part of my general malaise or a new presentiment of impending disaster. I'm hoping it's becauseof the awkward sleeping positions that the pain in my leg forces me to assume, but who knows? I'm trying to avoid thinking of my health intil August 24, when my doctor returns; my biggest goal bwetween now and Sept 1 is to make some money to pay off my debts as well as my impending IRS and NY State estimated taxes and health insurance; I think I'll either laugh hysterically or sob uncontrollably as I write that check.

Good vibes to DRs Jeanne, MattH for health, Ginny for family travails, JRand58 for a successful show, to BK for the dentist, and to all others for health, wealth, travel, whatever!

DR MattH, just read your posts about your not feeling well again. Hope you feel better. ~~~~~~

Btw, Re: your Y&R comments about chance and chloe (btw, how old is chance supposed to be anyways?? I thought he was way younger than chloe).

You haven't been watching the show that long. But when chloe was introduced she was one of the most hated characters on the show. She was mean and out for herself and didn't care who she hurt.

They had her trick cane into marrying her (and breaking it off with lily). And she was really a piece of work.

Then they added her on contract for 3 years and all the fans were wondering why (since she was really disliked).

But then the writers started changing how they wrote her. They let her become real. And the fans started responding. IMO it was when they told us that ester was her mother. For the first many months it was not revealed that chloe was really little kate (who used to be on the show many years ago).

To me this was the turning point for the character since ester is a good person and it made all the difference. Chloe still goes after things that aren't good for her. But she married billy to give her daughter a home (and she really loves him). So they toned her down a lot. And i actually really like her now and think she would be cute with chance.

I've been listening to Respighi's three wonderful chamber orchestra suites "Ancient Airs and Dances," and I want to know why the main theme of Set 2, No 4: "Bergamasca" sounds so much to me like a Western Movie theme rather than an Italian Renaissance tune.

Thanks for the backstory, DR Jennifer. I haven't gotten to the point of liking Chloe yet. Maybe it will come... :)

I think Chance could do better, but I don't know enough about the characters on the to make any suggestions. I just had a knee-jerk reaction to Chloe's pushing Chance into someone's arms. He's an adult. He can make up his own mind. He doesn't need ANYONE matchmaking. (As someone who endured this the entire time I was under my parents' roof, you might understand my distaste for such a practice.)

Good morning!

A gentle rain is falling this morning, and it's only supposed to be in the 80s today instead of the 90s. I hope the forecasters are right.

Thanks for all the good health wishes. I wish I could say they've helped, but in my case, they didn't. I was seized with terrible muscle spasm this morning and called my doctor only to be told there was nothing available until tomorrow morning, so I'll have to wait it out. Pain has subsided into a dull ache, but I am SO tired of feeling achy. Enough is enough.

If I can concentrate this afternoon, my work project will be another Criterion disc: THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO. I never saw this at the theater, so this will be my first time with the movie.
