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?

DR elmore - Does they no longer have a librarian? (Did they ever have a librarian?) -Do you know any of the orchestra members who may be able to direct you to someone who does know where your parts are?

What is a white chocolate reese peanut butter cup? Never heard of this. Is it new?

Nope. Those came out a few years ago as a "Limited Edition", but they seem to come back from time to time. There are even mini-ones in White Chocolate.

-It's just a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup with a white chocolate shell instead of a milk chocolate shell. My favorite are the Dark Chocolate ones.

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!

DR Jennifer - Sounds like you should go see a doctor.

As for the Topic of the Day...

To riff on DR John G's suggestion... I like ricotta spooned into a bowl, drizzled with honey, then dusted with cocoa powder.

I'll have to dig up some more elaborate recipes later. -Maybe the ones for the Peanut-Butter-Chocolate-Chip cookies and the Honey Cake my friend, Yosh, made last night. :)

The good thing about working with teenagers - is that you watch them for a week or so....and then you talk to them a bit.....and then you tell them something VERY positive about what they are doing....and watch them get even better, just because someone noticed them.

And usually they'll be chummy with the older folks if you're nice to them, also.  A lot of teens first reaction to older people is negative.  It will build cast camaraderie.

DR elmore - Were any of the firemen cute? ;)

-Glad to know that everything is all right. Maybe the ghosts are at it again?

Remember my neighbor who caused all the extra problems during the bed bug mess? I think it was her apartment. She's now married and living outside the City, but she and her husband were in and out of the apartment yesterday. She may have left an alarm clock on. I really don't know.

Yes, you and DR MBarnum would have enjoyed the firemen immensely.

Laura, there's a lot of film cans - not quite sure how many, though. 

Rent her a large U-Haul.

"Oh, I don't know, Lucy.  There's an awful lot of moutain roads between here and Albuquerque.  And besides, have you ever driven anything this big?"

"Oh, how hard could it be?  Come on. let's go pick up those film cans..."

DR elmore - Does they no longer have a librarian? (Did they ever have a librarian?) -Do you know any of the orchestra members who may be able to direct you to someone who does know where your parts are?

The Chorus has been run by several idiots in the past 13 years since they sacked me. The one who left two years ago threw out the entire library, saving one copy (often an incomplete copy) of each number on the grounds they were paying too much to store 200 copies of each song they've ever sung. When I was sacked in 1998, I asked for the return of all orchestrations and orchestra parts for my charts and they are now either with my publisher or my collection at the Library of Congress. The original Chorus Music Director, Gary Miller, returned all od my original scores with his markings to me last year and thy're all at the Miami University Library. God knows wher everything  else is now. The idiocy of the organization is amazing.

I'm hoping my check arrives today. I am low on money. I'm also due for a royalty check from my publisher. I hope I had good sales last year.

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

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

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?

DR Elmore - the mailing you've misplaced was just a "save the date" card.  Invitations have not gone out yet.  And, yes, I fully understand that you, along with many of the people we asked them to invite, will not be able to attend due to distance, schedules, etc.
