"Rain"

Not precipitation but the tribute to the Beatles band last night at the Canon Theatre. Gorgeous venue by the way - can't believe it's the first time I've been in it...very ornate and historic. All ages - the appeal of the Fab Four is ongoing and universal - they were a phenomenon after all.

Yes, I was up dancing with little encouragement to "Twist and Shout" and waving my hands to "Hey Jude" later in the show - the fellow playing Paul was incredible - especially on "I Saw Her Standing There" ,"Yesterday" and "Hey Jude".....the fellow playing John gave me goosebumps on "This Boy".  They did an encore of course - hey, they do have quite the catalogue to choose from...wonder if they change up the set list for each show? Kudos to the performers. The bonus of course is that you can actually hear the music, which judging from accounts of concerts by the actual Beatles - was pretty impossible with all the screaming.

Enjoyed the period ads from the 60s - reminded me of "Mad Men" of course - Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble enjoying a smoke! Getting a pair of nylons in a box of laundry soap, hair straightening products....

Today is Sorrel Soup, Cold Rice with Lemon and Basil, Summer Succotash and "Cheesecake" with Summer Fruit - most recipes from Alicia Silverstone's book "The Kind Diet" - the Cold Rice in particular is very addictive, ditto the Peanut Butter Cups....I have guests....

A visit to the market this morning was an embarassment of riches. Two more sleeps until the Edmonton Folk Festival...I will of course let you know about Van Morrison.....
