From the first time I heard "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," I fell in love with the sweet harmonies and rich, warming music made by Crosby, Stills and Nash.  Since that time, they celebrated the Summer of…Continue

I love the Jewish mother joke Bertold.

Gershwin is great. William Warfield, or Paul Robeson do Ol' Man River justice. Porgy and Bess is a great Opera. Few vocalists are able to accomplish the difficulty of the music.

Summertime....

Occasionally lyrics, melody and music form into one synchronization.
Perhaps Mazzy Star managed that tight rope in a different genre.

How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a light bulb?

None. I'll just sit in the dark.

Lightbulb jokes often seem disrespectful, but I'll take a chance and tell one I think is funny.  It's from one of my favorite movies, "My Blue Heaven".

What's the difference between a light bulb and a pregnant woman?

You can unscrew a light bulb.

Ol' Man River.  One of the great American songs.  Always stirring.

We simply have to create evolved jokes about LED bulbs. 

When I made my-around-the-world research tour, I met an Athabascan woman in Alaska who told me of the custom of the village members creating a "Moon" shelter, which they lined with mosses, fragrant flowers, and herbs for a woman to use during her menstrual period. She was thought to be too powerful to participate in decisions, but they consulted because of her wisdom.  

I found no written research confirming her story. However, I like it. 

Personally, I like the deep, deep voices as in 

William Warfield,

Sopranos think they're more important than everyone else because they can sing higher than anyone else. :)

Are lightbulb jokes becoming extinct, with the growing adoption of long-lasting LED bulbs?

- How many sopranos does it take to screw in a light bulb?

- One. She holds up the bulb and the world revolves around her.

It posted, Chris. And good stuff. Tony B at 90 can still hit those high notes.

Whitney Houston vs. Mariah Carey. Recording companies put them through vocal test ranges. F.W.It's worth Mariah reached a higher pitch.

I heard Michael Jackson make a screech. That isn't range though.

Stephen Tyler the front for Aerosmith doesn't have as smooth a voice as Tony Bennett, or Nat King Cole.

Joss Stone, Stevie Nicks, and Norah Jones all have great voices. Are they comparible to Tony Bennett, or Nat King Cole - no. They along with Carey and Huston have uniquely beautiful voices.

Menstruation and Women’s Voices: Can Men Hear When You Have Your Pe...

01/27/2012 Emma Gray Executive Women’s Editor, The Huffington Post

You know those adorable cases they sell for carrying your tampons to the bathroom so you don’t have to reveal to every man in the office or restaurant or DMV that you’re on your period? They may not be that useful, according to new research. A recent study indicates that for at least some men, it’s not the Tampax box sticking out of your purse that gives away your menstrual status — it’s your voice...

...Previous studies have also found evidence that women’s voices change during menstruation — though scientists disagree as to whether men subconsciously pick up on these cues as a way to detect when women are ovulating. According to Wired, a German study published in September 2011 found that while women were on their periods, their voices tended to be “heavier and less harmonic.”

My computer problems began about three weeks ago when an upgrade for my OS stalled. Ning has had problems for months. I don't have access to the edit functions of Ning. After multiple telephone conversations with level 2 representatives at Apple apparently I'm going to have to drag my 'computing' machine to an Apple Store.

I'm not sure if this will post.

Yes, Joan, that's the CD version I have at home.  It's a phenomenal recording.
