Holidays Greetings

Smiley Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! Joyeux Noël! Frohe Weihnachten! Честита Коледа! Schöni Fäschttäg! Buon Natale! Feliz Navidad! Smiley

Best of wishes to everyone for a safe and happy end to 2012 and a marvelous and healthy 2013!

For my fellow fans of one Vesselina Kasarova, the amazing Bulgarian operatic mezzo soprano, here is a little year end treat.

I don't know why this recording of Handel's Ariodante from the Liceu in Barcelona in 2006 hasn't been made commercially available yet. But here is a bit of it to give your holiday a dramatic stir.

VK and crazy animation ... my day is complete. Go carefully Smorgy.
PS I cannot comment using iOS as Blogger seems to be blocking it. Same with other blogs. Ah well - I get there in the end.

Happy New Year bella Bere, Eyes & Earworm!
Sorry I'm a blog sloth at the moment. Been spending too much time riding around town (now that the weather is nice and cool I'm hanging out more in the eastern mountains. By the time I get back I'm too wiped out to blog).

Sorry blogger is being so glitchy! It seems bent on wiping out my blog post as I type, too (keeps wanting to highlight everything while I'm composing a sentence. Dunno what's the matter with dat!). Hopefully 2013 will be less glitchy. :o)

Hope everyone is well and having a great finale to 2012. Wishing you all a very healthy and happy 2013! :oD

PS: Thanks for the Advent at Ephesus clip, Bere. I wasn't familiar with that, and it's beautiful! :D
