Strauss

New beginnings and the Jester conducts

Hi! Happy New Year!  Since it’s a time for new beginnings, perhaps it’s time for me actually to start keeping in touch and writing some things here. I’m not quite sure what it will be. Brenda describes it as a sandbox. A sandbox is a much more inviting notion than a blank page. Hopefully you can jump in and play too when you have the time.

No more procrastinating; let’s get started.

Here’s a cool new thing I learned this weekend. Danny Kaye was a conductor. Danny Kaye, the Court Jester, conducted the New York Philharmonic and other major orchestras.

I remember when I met my first radio deejay, too.”
