I had tickets, bought & PAID, 3-minutes
after they went on sale!
Buying tickets for Christmas Revels the DAY they go on sale to the public has been a cherished, yearly ritual for at least the last 7-years. It used to be for ‘Revels North‘ (at Dartmouth) and it had to be the front row.
The last few years we have been going to the ‘mothership’, the original Revels in Cambridge, Mass at the incomparably beautiful Sanders Theatre. We like the center balcony seats. The last few years I have only managed to get the 2nd row — which isn’t bad. But, I wanted to try for the very front row.
The tickets went on sale, to the general public, at 12:00pm today, Saturday, October 20, 2018. It was on my online calendar for the last 2-days.
I made sure that I completed my 3.5-mile run early just to be on time. I was at my computer, ready to go, at 11:40am. By 11:55am, I was logged on — credit card in hand.
Right at noon, as soon as the ‘BUY’ button appeared I was on it. It took a few seconds for it to respond. No messing around. I knew exactly what 4 seats I wanted. Went straight for them — like a laser. Snagged them. No messing around. Paid for them.
All done in 3-minutes. I am sure I was one of the first to buy tickets. I am happy. See you there. Cheers.

It is in Spanish (but should NOT be too hard to follow).

What were — or what are — they thinking?
Yes, there are UNLIKELY to be many Buddhists in Rochester.
People, even the Chinese would never think of putting images of Jesus in unusual surroundings — but they have no compunction when it comes to the Buddha. Maybe it is because they kind of know that he is not around. He is a goner. Attained ‘nirvana’ — meaning he ceased to exist.
Not as BAD as the Incense Dispenser I saw at T.J. Maxx in 2016!
Then there was also the Buddha inside a snow globe!
If I was the restaurant owner I would have had second thoughts about this. Not the smartest thing in the world to do.
