"Yes. Protecting the perpetrators of these kinds of crimes furthers the possibility that others with money and power will continue to get away with it. It's a commentary on elements of human behavior that puts no one involved in a good light,…"

"What's often lost in the metaphorical circling of the wagons, is that the shooting needs to be outward. The damage just increases otherwise."

Profile Information

Bio
After a 25-year career in corporate public relations, I retired early with plans to see the world. Instead, I saw the halls of despair as the Great Recession devoured my nest egg in 2009. I turned to blogging to help work through the doldrums and to share whatever knowledge I could with others going through similar hells. I write about my personal history,politics and current affairs.

Where does this go?

On R. Kelly

Posted on January 11, 2019 at 9:57pm 5 Comments

RACISM has really done a number on some of my black brothers and sisters!

I wasn’t going to attempt to write about this, because it is so complicated and fraught with opportunities to misunderstand.  But I’ll be damned if somebody didn’t just pull my trigger.

If you aren’t familiar with who R. Kelly is, think “I Believe I Can Fly.”  He is an R&B superstar…

Life Being Unfair is an Understatement

My sister's 14-year-old grandson has been dealt a nasty blow.  Like millions of other American families who receive a wholly unexpected medical diagnosis, my nephew is facing a long, drawn-out financial destruction.  Please read his story below and forward to any organization or private party who provide help for this kind of need.  …

Christmas Nostalgia

Posted on December 24, 2016 at 10:00am 17 Comments

I would give almost anything to experience just one more time the joy and anticipation of Christmas I felt as a child.  That was a time when it was okay to believe in magic; that this portly old dude in red velvet could perform feats that boggled the youngest of minds. 

My family made all kinds of magic, far above and beyond the call of duty.  On this Christmas Eve in my childhood the house would be devoid of all decorations – no wreaths, no tree, no presents, no nothing.  It was just…

Thanks, Lin. You are right, this is a swell place for writers. I have been starving for a new forum, and  Alysa S. recommended this site.

Monster review of Lincoln, too.

Greetings, Lin. Great to meet you. I have to poke around this site a bit to learn how it works! I made it this far...I think!

Thanks for the welcome. It seems like a pretty cool place!

Hi Lezlie,

Good to see you here.

I have heard Elijah several times with different orchestras,but this one played by the Atlanta orchestra is one of the best.

There was a life performance with Helmut Rilling conducting in a cathedrale in Zwiefalten.

Those two are of brilliance,and neither one seems to be available for sale.

A soprano performer and conductor told me that some performances are available to members* of the performance only. (*e.g.H.Rilling)

The Atlanta double CD I saw on Amazon,US,and I have asked friends to try to buy it in the US,but it is not available in retail stores. 

Thank you for your information.

Heidi

Hi Lezlie,

I'm glad to see you, although I have to get used to checking  in here.

Warm regards,

Hi,Lezlie,when the name "Atlanta"appears,I wonder if you know about a famous orchestra which has performed "Elijah" with excellent soloists.I have tried several times to order the CD.There is no official outlet.
