Last Friday it was the ever so fun ‘Gordon Lightfoot’ setup.

Today it was the set up for the Great Waters Music FestivalAn Evening On Broadway” Festival Chorus & Orchestra setup. As a volunteer stagehand for Great Waters I was gone from 11 am this morning till 4pm this afternoon. I lugged raisers, installed raisers, moved chairs, pushed speakers and did a bunch of small stuff. As ever it was great fun. Amazing group of people. Hard work but nobody complains and everybody pitches in. Despite my advancing years, I think I am the youngest of the bunch. That is OK. So, that is why I didn’t get to do many posts today. I was going to do one before I left BUT decided instead to watch the the 3rd day of the Sri Lanka vs. South Africa 1st Test from Galle.

I am in awe of Great Waters Music Festival. What an outfit. Wow.

Both kids have had their names and pictures in the newspapers enough times already that they take it as a given. That is good, I guess. I, as “Baby Lactogen“, had my picture in the papers everyday for 8 or 9 years. But, that was different. I think Deanna and I get more of a kick seeing their names in the paper than they do.

I was told this afternoon, in Wolfeboro, “Saw your daughter’s name in the paper yesterday”. I immediately knew that it must have been in the “Granite State News” because we had not seen anything in the Alton paper. So on the way back from Wolfeboro I stopped and bought the paper. And BINGO.

It has been a crazy week for her. It is intense. Long rehearsals. I saw her at Kingswood at 3 pm this afternoon — I had been there since 11 am. She won’t be home till 10:30 tonight. Yes, she is going for the Chorus dinner tonight, on her ‘own’ [i.e., without us]. All good. She is loving it.

I heard about an hour of the performance on Tuesday night. It is GOOD. Very, very lively.

So, try and make the concert — the Great Waters Music FestivalAn Evening of Broadway” with Festival Chorus and Orchestra.

Malaysian Air MH17: I Can’t Help Think That There Is A KAL 007 Like Plot And That MH370 Was A Failed Attempt!

I have always readily admitted that I am cynic’s cynic and even refer to myself as a professional cynic. So, please, indulge me when I tell you that I can’t get the notion that MH17 was a ‘sacrificial scapegoat’ just like KAL 007 had been. In my mind, “somebody” (and I will let you work out who that “somebody” is) wanted to see how far “they” (Ukraine forces, Ukraine rebels or even Russian ‘advisors’) could be provoked — how far they could be pushed. Folks that follow this stuff has known for a whole week that a  Soviet “Buk” (SA-11Gadfly”) surface-to-air missile was on the loose. I think “the powers that may” wanted to see if “they” would use it! So, just as with KAL 007, send an “Asian” plane. Of course I could be way, way off base. I hope so. But, the doubt lingers in my mind.

Note that MH370 went ‘poof’, and we still have not seen a single bit of debris, a couple of weeks into the Ukraine crisis. Had the ‘authorities’ BOUGHT MH370 for a similar mission only to lose it, over the NORTH Indian Ocean because of pilot error? So in my scenarios the ‘authorities’ are ‘buying’ these flights from the Malaysians — just like they ‘bought’ KAL 007.

Tell me, with conviction, that I am totally wrong. That would make me very happy because as a frequent flyer the thought of 298 folks just going POOF while serenely flying at 32,000′ bothers me. That could have been me — though I have, thank Buddha, have never flown Malaysian and will NEVER fly Malaysian. I have flown Singapore, Air India, Air Ceylon, Sri Lanka Air, Thai International, El Al etc. etc., not counting European and U.S. careers — but never Malaysian.

There is definitely something not right here.
