Heads up!!

For those who know her, the Duchezz turns 45 on Friday.

She will be at 7 Deadlies (I will not--I am in hopes of spending it with Heidi and the boys). If you see her there, and can afford it, give her daisies. She loves them, and sometimes gets a bit sad when I get flowers and she doesn't.

If you want to send her an email, and virtual posies instead, that would be awesome, but please embed the photos!! Her work email (which I will cheerfully give you if you contact me privately) does not link to the web.

She's been having her version of the week I had just a bit ago, so any love sent her way would be a real blessing.

Thanks, all.

And on a completely different note, literally, the Morning Edition piece on Felix Mendelssohn's 200th birthday was just the kind of gorgeous way to start the day. It reminded me of the thing I miss most about being a music major at SUNY Fredonia--being constantly surrounded by beautiful music.

if it is a frontiernet address, that's her personal one. If it ends ny.us then that's it!

Send me the work email, and I'll send her some posies.

'Cause we love her and all that.

Daisies and Sunflowers are my favourite flowers :-)

Please send me her work email so I can send her birthday wishes.

Thank you for the heads up.

Yes, please send her email. I may be able to work out something for 7 Deadlies, too, as my sweetie is planning to be there, though I can't promise on his behalf.

I also loved the story about Mendelssohn this morning, though I had a hard time explaining to my kids about what Wagner did... In particular it was interesting to listen to the two versions of the movements from the Italian Symphony - I must check out the NPR website to see if they have more.

Oh, wait - is it the frontiernet email she used to contact me last week? If so, I have it.

That's her home account, which she probably won't get into until Sunday. I'll send her work one to you (it's one of those scary government emails, since, technically, that's who she answers to.

When we were doing the Modern Age (which includes the 19th century--clearly the course needs a new name), I had to include that whole episode in the context of Social Darwinism, etc., nationalism (etc.), ad nauseum. I thought my head was going to explode

"it was interesting to listen to the two versions of the movements from the Italian Symphony"

Seriously! I really hope they make a recording of his re-written version: I thought it was beautiful.
