Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - I would like to welcome all the new folks stopping by for a visit!! - and - welcome to all my new followers!! That clunk was my jaw hitting the ground at the sweet comments being posted along with your BOD Entries. I am reading them and warmness fills me to over flowing!!!
The stitching last night was more angel wing or I should say more "Straw Bonnet" - a rather dull colour, but necessary. I almost got there, but the call of the chip was too great and so I put down the stitching and picked up the Lays Bag - crunchy deliciousness!!!
The flicker for the evening - after watching a NEW, really good "Glee" (don't you just love Fleetwood Mac!!) - was a documentary called "Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037" - 2007 - A fascinating look inside the Steinway factory in Queens, New York. The film follows the construction of a concert grand piano - from forest to showroom. It takes about twelve months to make one of the magnificent things. What this film does is go from department to department watching all the thousands of things it takes to make a single piano come together . They spend time talking and interviewing all the dedicated craftsmen involved - from actual construction to the fine tuning. The film also includes interviews with the end users of such a wonderful instrument - Harry Connick Jr, Lang Lang and other pianists. I really enjoyed this film and at about 81 minutes you sort of zip along without a dull moment - it almost seems too short.
There you go sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by, and for you wonderful comments!!
