Well, we've had some excitement here. On my way to the laibdromat, about 30 minutes ago, I could hear in my hallway an alarm going off with a high-pitched series of beeps. I couldn't tell if it was a smoke detector, carbon monoxide alarm, or an alarm clock, or which apartment it was coming from, but it sounded to be on my floor. I rang all three apartments at the end of the hall where the sound was loudest and no one responded. I got my laundry, came back and arang the super's bell; no response. When I got up to the third floor, the alarm was still going off, so I rang all three apartments again; no response. I called 911 and gave the operator all the information and, since I was dubious about what it could be, she directed me to a fire station and I explained everything again. Five minutes later a fire truck, five or six firemen showed up, and of course the alarm had stopped. They checked out the building and left. They were all very pleasant.

In August 1971, in Oxford, OH, the building next to my apartment caught fire and burned to the ground, killing a fireman when the building collapsed. My building was closed for structural examination so I had no apartment for nearly a month and had to drive to and from my parents' home to Oxford every day. In August 1973. my brother Randy, then a 16 year-old pothead and general screwup, coming and going from the house around midnight, left something burning in his room - I always suspected a joint although the report blames it on too many outlets heated up - and around 4 am, his room went up in flames and my room suffered extreme water damage from the firemen going through my room to his. I do not want to live through a third fire, so I get jumpy whenever something's suspect.

DR MBarnum, I believe you should stop cruising retired sword & sandal bodybuilder/actors and concentrate on retired firemen: no egos and they're in great shape.

Yikes, DR Elmore!  Glad everything seems to be OK.

I'm off to my meeting and some errands - bye for now!

Our storm is gone, and it left us with beautiful clear blue skies today. And much lower-than-usual temperatures.

I still feel so crappy. But my sore throat has now turned into a very runny nose and a cough. So maybe this is progressing? Not sure.

But I feel so bad. This is the worst illness i've had in so long. First the fever. Then the sore throat. And now the constantly running nose and cough.  Yuck!

Jose, I actually attempted to do my first "Tweet" last night to @TalktoQwest, but I have never used Twitter and so don't understand the correct format to Tweet "directly" to someone.  I did email them.  But is there a way to post a tweet on that page?  If so, how?

I love the new CAMELOT recording and can't recommend it enough.

I've always liked that recording, and I never thought I'd wind up with a fantastic CD reissue. EMI London was pretty lousy about reissuing their show recordings, but we have it now, thanks to BK.  I have a copy of the London production, which reflects all of the changes made for London, like the new overture with chorus, and the new dance music. I'm still sorry no one's recorded "The Persuasion."

DR JRand60, did you know I have a complete performance CD of the 1960 Broadway production?

I do now....hmmmmmmmmmmm.....that might be interesting to someone directing the show.

You type it, then print it out, then mail it to them.

DR Ginny, I keep forgetting to ask if Rob and Mary Linda are registered with any merchant? I've misplaced the invitation so I can't RSVP, but you do realize that my schedule will prohibit my getting to the wedding?

I didn't finish that sentence about the London production of CAMELOT. I have a copy of the British vocal score. I think in shorthand.

I really don't wish the NYC Gay Men's Chorus any ill will, but their complete ineptitude really drives me mad.  Two years ago, during the whole "Appalachian Carols" mess, to keep peace, I ordered a set of band parts from my publisher, paid for them and gave them to the Chorus to use for the December concert in 2009. I called the Music Director yesterday to see if I could use the parts for next week's workshop, and he has no idea where they may be! The Chorus no longer appears to have an archive of orchestra parts from their concerts. What total ineptitude is this?

To announce before the Varese doesn't help, really, although I'm thinking about it.  People will still wait to see what their four titles are.  So, I'm thinking we'll either wait the week or do it mid-week next week.  We shall see.

Some of the material from Tams seems to be written that way as well.

DR JMK - You can just tweet at them - or @ them - via the main page. -They need to be Following you in order to receive a Direct Message - DM - from you. So...

Just start off by asking them if they have reports of a problem in your area. In the "Tweet" box, just start off with "@TalkToQwest" then the rest of your query - in 140 characters or less. -Continue it in another tweet if needed. Then wait and watch for a response from them. They will usually say, "Please DM us with your name and account number."

To send a DM to them: Click on "Messages" along the top. Click on "New Message". A pop-up box will appear. Type in "TalkToQwest" in the "To" box, then your message - again in 140 characters or less.

*I also noticed that they list an email address and 800 number in their "bio".

I'm up and it looks like a very pretty day.

It was sunny(?) earlier, and it's supposed to less rainy today. However, since the temps are rising, it looks like we're in for some intermittent storms this afternoon. But at least it does look like we're in for a great weekend weather-wise.
