    Oh my! I think Natalie's daughters took possession of her account!
    We can tell this post was authored by them rather than by Natalie because the poor little darlings are obsessed with food, given that their mother starves them in order to save money for CDs, DVDs, and trips to Australia to see der Jonas in person.

    Locally, can only get Emmental in small pre-packed portions. I'd need to go to London to buy it loose. Lindt is always a temptation!

    Having listened to Pyrrhus last week, I thought I'd go back and listen to cross dressing Achilles and Deidamia (sometimes wearing a dress is just more comfortable).

    Handel: Deidamia
    Simone Kermes (Deidamia), Dominique Labelle (Nerea), Anna Maria Panzarella (Achille), Anna Bonitatibus (Ulisse), Furio Zanasi (Fenice) & Antonio Abete (Licomede)
    Il Complesso Barocco
    Alan Curtis
    Recorded July 2002, Teatro dei Rozzi, Siena

    Well, we don't need to go there. Thankfully my town has the Siena Hotel with the Il Palio restaurant.

    Kidding. I've visited only twice and would go back every year if I could.

    Thanks for the hint.
    However since I've been very worried about your daughters, I think I'll stay here

    http://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldet...el/Siena/75999

    and then I'll donate the difference to the Feed Natalie's Daughters Fund.

    Back to Handel.

    Trying to fight urge to buy new Naive Tamerlano with Sabata.

    Whilst it is on sale at PC.

    Or for any reason.

    Being a newbie, I'll list the last few days' treats: last night was the Met DVD of Le Comte Ory; the night before, the 1982 Met Ernani (Pav, Milnes, Mitchell) and earlier a new favorite, La Favorite with Kate Aldrich and Yijie Shi. And earlier, similarly releases of the 2012 and 2013 Richard Tucker Galas (DVDs), which to me are near sensory overloads!

    There are times that life can be very good, friends!

    And tonight we just finished watching that absolutely wonderful opera gala from Baden Baden with Netrebko, Garanca, Vargas and Tezier. If there's a better concert gala on disc, I'd be amazed. (With a very inexpensive yet yummy wine from CA called Menage a Trois. No comments, please; we entertained no guests)
