André Rieu - Olga Breeskin

André Rieu

Olga Breeskin - Birthday Party

NOT WORK FRIENDLY



1.
A friend of mine invited me to go with him to his little nephew's third birthday party. I told him I'd meet him there. I was amazed at how well he and the two little girls danced the Cha-Cha Slush! They looked so cute!

2.
After the party, I drove straight to the secluded dessert to run and let out a few screams that needed to come out AGAIN. I did manage to stop running for a second to take a pic of these eerily beautiful clouds that were my umbrella. Of course, I first looked around to see if there were any cops around, because I know would have assume I was insane, and taken me directly to the Funny Farm!

3.
I was also invited to see Olga Breeskin this past weekend. She is a very famous violinist from Mexico, and I just can't express enough, how beautifully this woman plays the violin!! I took many pics, but they didn't come out good at all because the stage was pretty dark. Here are two of the pictures I took with my digital camera.

I plan to take many pics when I go see André Rieu in December to share with you, and I want them to be PERFECT! The digital camera I own is a Sony 7.2 Mega Pixels, zeiss, 2.5" LCD monitor, 3x Opical Zoom Cyber-shot.

I'd like to buy a new camera, perhaps in the price range of $1,000 - $2,000. Can someone recommend a VERY GOOD one? I'm serious about this. I’ll be ordering it through the internet, because everything is less expensive.

4. My heart skipped a beat way back in September the 24th, when I read in Sunday's Newspaper that the talented conductor and violinist, André Rieu, and the Johann Strauss Orchestra would be coming to town.

I must admit, I'm terrible! I started spreading the word at work that I sure would love to go see him, but couldn't afford the outrageous ticket price, accidentally on purpose, in hope that somebody would invite me!

I started to lose hope because here we are already October! Well, I got not one, but two invitations, one from my boss, and the other from a co-worker!! I still haven't decided which invitation I'll accept. I guess I'll just have to go INNY MINNIE MINY MOE thingy! :o)

This is the guy I'm going to see:

André Rieu - Romeo and Juliet


Here you'll see the video of André Rieu playing Bolero de Ravel

These are just a few of the classics he plays:
Der Pate (The Godfather), Strangers In Paradise,
Romance Anonym, Chanson D'amour,
Opern Potpourri, O Mio Babbino Caro,
Italienische Nationalhymne , L'italiano
Schenkt Man Sich Rosen In Tirol (Roses From Tyrol)
Lagunen Walzer (Lagune Waltz)
Du Sollst Der Kaiser Meiner Seele Sein -
(You Are The Emperor Of My Heart),
The Rose, Italiana, Barcarole, La Paloma
La Montanara, Marina, Ich Liebe Dich (I Love You)

I've already started the window shopping for a dress, because I want to look as elegantly gorgeous as possible. I found two dresses, but just can't make up my mind which one to buy! WILL YOU KIDS HELP ME CHOOSE a, b OR c??!!

a. b c.
Or maybe I can kill THREE birds with one stone! I am as frugal as can be! Perhaps I can just wear the same dress I wore (c) for that 6'6" Officer and a Gentleman a while ago, AND still be buried in it when I die!

I admit I would love to see you in B. A does not do a thing for me but B is a tease and very playful.

You did look quite beautiful in C and you know that would be my vote. Just wish you would give us a better picture of you in it.

Yes, dress B is a dress for teasing. :o)

Hopefully the pics will come out decent so I can share them with you.
Thank you love!

Canon makes some very good digital SLR cameras, the Powershot is also a good choice. 0

1) The camera you have is a VERY GOOD camera. 7.2 MegaPixels is waaaay more than you need. The Zeiss lens is superb. The only thing is the zoom. IF you got another camera (and I don't think you NEED one) you might want to get a zoomier zoom. OR just get closer with this one. OR read the directions..you may have a LOW LIGHT setting. Practice using the low light setting by putting it in your bedroom on a tripod, light a candle and get naked and try several exposures...then e-mail them to me so I can evaluate the resolution and color saturation....:)

2) Who goes running with a camera???

3) Classical music?? Violins....you continue to amaze me.
(the WHITE DRESS...you know its the right thing...LOL)

If you say it's a good camera, I'll experiment. It does have a bunch of stuff, but don't know what they're for, but when my brothers come for Thanksgiving, I'll have them teach me.

Who runs with a camera? I do! It never leaves my side, even when I run!

There are so many parts to me, you'd be shocked. Even as a child, I loved classical music. I thank my beloved mother for introducing me to it.

I'll wear the off white dress if you say so! :o)

1 A birthday party! did you get up and do the Cha-Cha Slush too? ;o) lol

2. hey I like the clouds they have been wild lately and If you need to scream then scream your heart out it is good to let out steam every now and then and that ain't crazy it is just being human :o)

3. Olga Breeskin I have never heard of her but I will have to look her up if you like her she must be good !
you know savanah I use a canon Rebel xt but they do have better ones but I have been spending most of my money on my lenses right now I Will up grade later is that a fixed lens camera? You should go down to the camera store and just look all the cameras over and ask lots of questions

4.André Rieu - Romeo and Juliet dam I had tickets and I did not know you wonted to go You can't blame a guy for trying ;o)
*Big Wink* you know I have seen him and his orchestra they are great.

you know that #B it would look great on you :o)*BIG BIG SMILE* but it might be a little cold and c looks great too but what ever one you pick it will look beautiful that is because your the one in it :o) hope you have fun and your not going to die your like me I am going to live for ever ;) lol

Dresses A and B are as far from elegant as a burlap bag. Too trashy on both counts. Really, I thought you were better at this.

Get another dress like C.

Also, don't know about the Primal Scream therapy. Tears for Fears may have made some decent songs, but they weren't very good psychologists.

So does this mean you don't approve of dress A and B? :o(

For a classical violinist's concert? Not unless you're going to try to take him home after.

I think you ought to drop everything, fly up here immediately, drop by my place, and slip into (or out of, your call) something more comfortable.

All my love...

My plane leaves Texas at
My plane leaves Texas at 7 PM, so I’ll try to catch a few winks before arrival.

Oh, and don’t eat a thing! I do hope you’ll be ravaged, and are a sweet tooth candy connoisseur, ‘cuz I’ll be wearing my edible panties and bra just for you. I do love to see a man eat all night long with gusto! heh heh

Re: My plane leaves Texas at
Prepare to be amazed then. I'll be waiting...brace yourself when you come in the door, you might be taken down as soon as you walk in. Not to worry, I have a nice thick carpet--yes I'm quite fond of rough shag.

And you had better not keep me waiting...nothing is more cruel than promising you're on your way and not turning up. It's not the heartache so much as the painful 72 hour erection...

Ok! Then I'll wear the lavender dress and go trick or treating in it for Halloween, and spook the entire neighborhood!

Think I'll manage to get lots of sweet treats in my bag...hmmm? :o)

Okie dokey, I'll wear them for those certain special occasions for you!

There's just one problem, I've always had problems unlacing my tennis shoes. Think you can give me a hand with the laced up lavender dress...hmmm? ;o)

Re: There's just one problem
Good!!! I know I will enjoy that...and hope you do too....
