    Trouble is I think nothing will match the La Monnaie production for emotional impact.

    No, we really need to use the Tardis for this. I really wish they would release this on DVD; please join me in writing a letter to them.

    This was a monumental production, a significant part of operatic history (at least in the world of Clayton)

    It looks like friend Clayton broke down and got himself a DVD machine!

    Considering recent purchases, I am hoping there is plenty of room for yet another brand-y new tea cabinet!

    It looks like I'll have to hit that "buy" button, especially after I checked out cough cough Emöke's assets.

    PS - Done.

    I love your recommendations, Nat. They are often a lot of fun!

    Ha Ha!

    Not yet, I am still using the computer but I have a new configuration. I move the picture box on to tea cabinet 1 (new picture box without CRT, very light and easy to move) and put computer on to tea cabinet 2, far away enough for the whirring noise not to bug me too much (or use headphones).

    I need to think about this, emergency overflow system is now completely full and tea cabinet no. 3 is once again under stress. Might have to say goodbye to the last of the teapots; these are no good to listen to.

    I hesitate to point this out, but there always is coffee - much easier to deal with.

    Agree. Coffee pots have far better acoustics than tea pots.
