Me, myself, I and David Foster

Our Weekend Memoirs: David Foster & Friends
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing

The Hitman, David Foster and his sidekicks finally performed live in my backyard last Monday. My ineptness at the camera has been a serendipity. I came up with halloween shots as well. Meet the ghosts of concert present: don't they shape up better than Casper?

Opening score: Theme of the Calgary Olympics

Mr Foster did his homework by remarking about the flood in the northeast. And here they are doing (Michael Jackson's) the Earth Song
David Foster, Peter Cetera, Ruben Studdard, Natalie Cole, Charice, and The Canadian Tenors

I went to this concert mainly for the household names and revel in memories of familiar titles: St. Elmo's Fire, Unforgettable, and many more.

Peter Cetera can't reach his high notes anymore =)

But it's okay. He's still The Inspiration. Besides I can't complain when someone half my age mistook me for a 20-something girl in the parking lot. But even if I did look my age, I admit Charice does deliver.

'dismembered' from the Charice Fan Club

It seemed like phones were intercepted inside Impact Arena. I got to socialize with friends only after the concert -

Singles Club for The Canadian Tenors

Seventeen years ago I could have turned into a zombie if I came face to face with them. The relevance of their songs was just too striking on my god forsaken love career. I'm thankful for the passage of time.

Sunday Stealing: The Meme About Me, Myself and I

But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
