Glad to hear that Kristi and DR Jane both got good medical reports.

DR Vixmom, I'm glad you survived your whirlwind trip to St. Louis.  Did you wave when you flew over Ohio?

Richard and I went to the Butler County Board of Elections yesterday for our early voting date, then out to lunch at the Athenian Greek American Grill in Sharonville (northern Cincinnati 'burb).  We even had Graeter's ice cream on the way home.

Iím playing in HELLO, DOLLY! at a college in February. Itíll be full orchestra, piano/celeste for me, and my friend the MD would like it if I can cover the harp. We donít see a harp book (or reference to keyboard coverage) on the Tams site and we wonít have materials for a while yet, so Iím wondering two things: 

Could that just be an omission in their listing? And is the rental orchestration more or less the original 1960s one? (I know they send the transpositions, too, so obviously those are altered.)

http://www.tamswitmark.com/shows/hello-dolly/

I havenít listened to it in a while, and I donít remember how original or how changed the orchestration was in the Channing revival that BK recorded.

The cats seem to be fine this morning.  Thatch's nose is cold and he's bouncing around, and Annabelle has dropped her neediness and gone back to lounging in her Fancy Feast carton.

Great news.

You didn't mention if you needed the video links I posted on how to check for dehydration.  Experience taught us to be a bit obsessive checking our cats when we suspected they didn't feel good.

I looked at the links and did nothing beyond that.  Thatch and I deal with each other in nontraditional ways.

I believe you can hear a harp on the OBC, and there may be cues in the original published vocal score, but there is no harp in the rental package to my knowledge.  That orchestration is based on the original but I believe it's been tampered with for both the tours and to cover missing instruments.

I highly suggest you practice this while they are healthy to get a feel for doing it.  It is much easier to know when a dog isn't getting enough fluids than a cat.  Catch a serious problem in time and save a trip to the vet :)

I'm up, I'm up - very rough night, don't know why but I guess the chicken salad or bagel didn't agree with the Ny-Quil or something but just kept waking up feeling yucky.  I think I slept seven or eight hours though.

This morning I have a port flush and then my sister Paula and I are going to the Mooresville Goodwill store....which should be fun.

I had the HEAT on last night for the first time this year....everything seems to be working properly.

This morning, I was in my second floor extra room and noticed that that heater was on.  It's the first time that I noticed that any heater had come on.  I have it set to come on at 55į.  I also realized that my bottom floor heater has not yet come on at all!  What's up with that?  I checked that one and I had actually turned it all the way off!  No wonder it's been so cold up in my third floor bedroom!  I set that thermostat to 60į and will see how it all is.  It's really not worth it to turn the heat up much more because it ALL just goes right up the stairs and out my skylight.  I just want enough heat so that my pipes don't freeze (or my neighbors' again). :P

I am back from the medical center where I took Kristi for her endoscopy. It was a one-year follow up after her surgeries last year, and everything looked fine.

Great news, ChasSmith!

Yes, there are cues in "Ribbons", "Sunday Clothes", and a few other songs. Tonight I'll take out the recordings and see what's what.

From your standpoint, would it be silly, or just plain wrong, to take down any of it using the vocal score and the OBC, to sweeten the pot a little? We don't have to do it at all.

While at the Goodwill this morning looking for a fall type jacket....with a lining....which I found for $5.99 - I also stopped to look at the books and records and cd recordings.

And there among the country music and religious solo albums and boy bands were 12 - TWELVE - different cd recordings from Dino....the famous DINO at the piano of HHW.

I studied them all - and I decided I would buy ONE....so I chose Unforgettable Dino - the Pop Sessions which includes a medley of Unchained Melody/Everything I Do/Unforgettable, Wind Beneath My Wings, and several other ditties....ten in all.

It is most entertaining....next time I am there I will see what else is left.....

I also bought Bryn Terfel sings Rodgers & Hammerstein....which I have not listened to yet.

Oh and Dino's last name is Kartsonakis.....and he plays Baldwin pianos exclusively....

My nephew married a woman 19 years his senior.....she has had him cut off communication with his family completely - it's a bad situation that needs not to be discussed in detail.....life goes on for my sister, her husband and his two sisters.

The wife who has several serious illnesses that no doctor can name or treat her for is crazy - for want of a better word - and of course he is complicit as well or he would say - they ARE my family....

ANYWAY she has been bragging on her Facebook page, which I look at occasionally, about the great job that he got and how much he loves it, etc.  I looked at the picture that she posted of one event he worked on.

I said to my sister - that looks like the place where Roe (our cousin's son) works.....so I happened to message him.....and asked does NAME work for you - he's my nephew.

ROE said....NO way!!!  I just hired him a couple of months ago, he's great.

I said tell him hi! 

HA HA!  His wife's head will explode when she finds out he's working with ONE OF US.....

Small world.

Frozen pipes is not a good thing.  Do you know about leaving a little dripping water if it get very cold?

I think piano-celesta is more important.  Is there a bona fide piano-celesta part instead of playing from the vocal score?

DR Jrand I feel very bad for your family, especially your sister, her husband and his two sisters.  It is funny though that he is working for family without his wife knowing.  Thank goodness the response to your nephew is the he is great.
