Oddly enough I was listening to the last track of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" that I ripped from the book-on-CD I got from the library. It was read by Eric Idle of Montey Python fame.

Right now I'm listening to the overhead pager, the hum of the neons and the guy in the next cubicle walking a restaurant manager through a filter change on an RO.
In the car on the way to work, I had a Beatles CD.
Frequently its Civil War Music though.

Funny you should mention that; I saw that on my page-a-day calendar that day. It occurred to me that I didn't hear any mention of that anywhere (save here today, of course) but you hear all kind of hubbub about Cinco de Mayo. It then occurred to me that, like St. Patrick's Day, it  (Cinco de Mayo) is probably just something that is a much bigger in the USA then in the originating country.

What's really more important to the country? Independence or a victory over the French (apologies, Vee!)??

Hi Verinique!
I still say "What a beautiful name".   I agree with your selections of GOOD MUSIC. You have a good ear for music. I guess I'm old fashioned, but I lean to the smooth when it comes to music.

Glen Miller;         the best of the big bands
Doris Day  ;        the smoothest singer of all
Gordon MacRae;  what a voice

Okay; so I came up in the what "Pappa Art" called the Romance Era. I'll bet most of you out there did too. Remember when we dated. Men arrived in suit coat & tie to pick up their date dressed like she cared to be with you. And, Don't forget her little hat and white gloves. And,,,Yes, she waited till we opened the car door for vher,,, and our hearts pounded as we did. There is one picture that will forever be burned on the wall my mind. I was on a blind date, along with my sister who set up the evening, and her husband. Do you wonder if I was nervous; you could say that. As I rang the door bell, all sorts of catastrophies flashed across my mind."WHAT AM I DOING HERE?. I wished I was home, alone and safe. But the door opened and there she was; I looked into those eyes, and I was lost. Well,,,,, not really;    my life and future was about to change and I was scared. But the next 2 months changed all that. On Christmas Eve I  proposed, and to my amazement,,, she said yes. We had 43 wonderful years, full of ups & downs, but full of happiness. She has been gone these past seven years, but I talk to her every night, and that sustains me till we meet again.

sorry
Enjoy life; It only comes round once

Hey Chuck, great story. Things were a lot less complicated back then, huh? Heck, I look back to the Reagan era with longing! Now. . .[head shaking]

Anyway, I just wanted to add that I am currently listening to the last movement of Berlioz' Symphony Fantastique. Great for Halloween music and as a way to introduce classical music to the kids if you haven't.

Happy listening!
