Why I Haven't Been Posting Lately

New Jersey Opera Theater

TA DA! It's the brand new Web site. I've been working on this site with the NJOT folks, and this is the fruit of that labor. Honestly, I still don't know how I figured out how to do the Music Excerpts player.

I still have a bunch of enhancements to make, and I'm going to continue to update it for the time being.

Questions, complaints and hate mail can be directed to me.

Here you can see the results of my closest encounter with a Food Network celebrity chef since Alton Brown got that restraining order.

Yes, that is the star of the show "Everyday Italian" and the author of the cookbook "Everyday Italian" (same name...what a coincidence), Giada De Laurentiis.

She has a new cookbook out and she was signing it at the Barnes & Noble at Princeton MarketFair. Patricia and I went over to check it out and maybe get a signiture, but the line went almost to the other end of the mall. Neither of us felt like waiting, so we had to settle for a quick picture and a wave.

I swear that she didn't stop smiling the entire time.

Great Picture

Dave (my brother) sent along a couple of other pitures from the night of the Beer Tasting (see below) and this was one of them.

I don't remember him taking it, and I have no idea what I was laughing about, but I think it looks great and the blur effect on Shaun and me was a result of us moving. I think it looks so cool.
