Ma Na Ma Na!

Jim Henson brought the wonderful world of Sesame Street and The Muppets into my childhood. The fantasia of characters brought laughter into many homes. And if not laughter, then song. One song/sketch that I have't seen since I was a child found its way into my email today.

I invite you all to share in the joy that was the Ma-Na-Ma-Na sketch on the Muppet Show.

Networking that Matt(ers)

A pretty good article on networking appeared in Sunday's D&C. Somehow I wasn't surprised to read Matt's name. I always say it's a small world and you never know how people are connected.

I suppose it's a good time to steal some lines from Matt and the article and mention that I'm open to any new job possibilities right now.

From a networking standpoint, I suppose things are going okay for me. Ever since I did "The Living Christmas Tree" I've gotten calls about joining trios, quartets, fiddle groups and other music related ventures. I joked that it only took 6 years for the musical doors to open in this area for me. I've always said it's who you know that will get you where you want to go. I've gotten two jobs that way.

I also couldn't be more busy in my personal life. Between Warren Civic Orchestra, the radio news gig I do nightly, pilates at the Y, my regular work-schedule, and random stuff around the house, I haven't had time to relax. I keep thinking life will settle down soon, but this is my life.

My God, The Horror!

Just as I was about to leave the radio station last night after recording the news, I noticed a press release had come in the fax machine. Being a good, little news girl, I decided to take a gander in case I needed to add it to the morning run-down. The words I beheld made my eyes pop and peals of laughter escaped my mouth. I boldly decided to spare the person named in the release any further indignation and, instead, folded the release up and put it in my purse. Maybe it wasn't the wisest choice, but really, do you think it does the public any good to know which neighbor was in the county jail for sexually assaulting a horse?

You read that correctly. I think I made my point.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
