Trouble is I'm having too many of them lately

I don't want to do the school run nearly a mile each way in the rain won't be much fun, especially with miss by eck on the way home. She is aiming for a PhD in complaining at the moment

He likes it there. Nice drs who make a fuss of him, lots of toys to play with, and he gets plenty of praise because he knows the ropes so cooperates

Hello everyone

If you would like any choral music recommendations, I might be able to help - I was a choral scholar at university

Evening Frodo - that sounds good, my collection so far doesn't extend beyond Eric Whitacre (although I'm very happy with that).  How are you getting on hun?


My to doing is progressing well, although I seem to be dodging about between tasks quite a lot so not completely finishing one before starting another.  It's all progress but it's making crossing things off a bit tricky!

Which uni? Mr by eck was a cathedral chorister ( sniggers), and moo's godfather is an orchestral musician. Means I get loads of music stuff bandied around, and access to a great music library. But all music recommendations gratefully received
.Bear, do you need to break things down a bit more?

Possibly - or maybe differently.  I had on my list to clear one worksurface bit at a time but what happens was I fetched the recycling bin and it made sense to clear all recycling in the kitchen at once which was productive even though it didn't finish off any individual worksurface.  It's that sort of thing

Ahhh, I know what you mean. To do lists can be adjusted

I was at Trinity Music College for five years and was at Nottingham University as a scholar. Ex-husband was Kings choral scholar and professional countertenor. I was a coloratura soprano (though desperately wanted to be a ballsy Wagnerian-type) so was pimped out around the Midlands every Easter for the Allegri top Cs

I tend to put things I've already done on my to-do lists so I can cross them off straight away

Frodo, don't be embarrassed, I do that too!
Mr by eck was at Winchester. Not many ginger choristers. He got to record spem in alium. ( find a good recording bear and wallow in the sound).
Frodo, moo sat and watched the allegri 3 times today. That moment when the soprano just rises above the other soloists obviously touched him because his jaw opened! Why did you give it up?

I was only a singer by accident (first study flautist) but I got divorced. No way I could keep going and not run into the ex - too small a world.
I actually pretty much destroyed my voice after that through coxing. But I don't regret it at all; sport is way more fun
21/11/2012 at 18:59

I do that too Frodo


Wow I didn't know you had that background Frodo - amazing stuff!

It's a very small world. I can imagine that would make things difficult. Singing isn't compatible with shouting, smoking, drinking or other noisy pursuits. Do you do any music now?

Since it seems to be a day of discovering things, is there anything you think we don't know about you bear?
