DEAR READERS:
 
 
CABARET ON THE GREEN AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
Another great night! 23 fantastic singers, not quite the record but close. JOEL BAKER was back and opened with "Nice Work I You Can Get It" and my opening song was "It's Delovely". Then on to MARA GETZ singing a fabulous "Georgia". Then LESLIE TINNARO with "Back To Before" from RAGTIME, then later "I Could Have Danced All Night", check out her upcoming show in the 'shows' section. VIRGINIA ROBERTSON got a table front row center with 3 of her friends who came for dinner and to hear her sing "Once Upon A Dream", and "Our Love Is Here To Stay". BETH FORMELOZA brought us a beautifully done "I've Got A Crush On You", and a finger-snapping "Fever". FERDIE FORMELOZA did "Bridge Over Troubled Waters", and also "Who Can I Turn Too". DOUG GRAHAM sang "Music Of The Night" as well as "All I Care About Is Love" from CHICAGO. PAT MCCANN's songs for the night were "Once In A Lifetime" and one I've not heard in awhile, "You Do Something To Me". TER GALLAGHER followed her with "Come In From The Rain", and from COLOR PURPLE, "Ms. Celie's Blues". LINDSAY OUELLETTE was there too with "Too Close For Comfort". And so was JEAN SORF doing one of her favorites, "Fools Rush In". ALAN JON was next with "Kiss Him Now" and a new song, "My Prayer". it's official, DAVID BADER is now one of our regulars and tonight he sang "I Want To Be Around To Pick Up The Pieces", and later he sang his version of "Our Love Is Here To Say". RUTHANN DE LA VEGA sang a different song entitled "Happy Birthday", and her other song was "Guess Who I Saw Today". BARBARA FRANTZ did only one song this time but it was a brand new one called "Singing The Blues", Also there for only one song was JOHN SPINKS with "Once Upon A Time", and in case you're keeping score, it was our third song with a title that starts with ONCE. Another solo song singer was SHARON SILLS doing a rousing "When Your Good To Mamma" also from CHICAGO. Next was our birthday person for the evening, NONI LAMBERTSON with "A Very Special Love", the we all sang the other "Happy Birthday". And we had MARCIA HARP there to sing "All That Jazz" making it our third song from CHICAGO, and later sang "The Best Thing You've Ever Done". GINO CARMODY returned with his two songs including "Bewitched, Bothered, And Bewildered", and also "Till There Was You", or as Joel calls it "The Sheep's Favorite Song". PAUL SHERMAN, who came to sing with us over a year ago, came with 5 friends for dinner and to hear him singing "I Can't Get You Out Of My Heart", and you could have heard a pin drop during his "If I Loved You". Plus we had VICKI KNIGHT singing "Until It's Time For You To Go" and one of her many signature songs, "Kratchma". JOSEPHINE NEWKIRK made an appearance and sang "Every Time We Say Goodbye", then later sang "Where Do You Start". And our first-timer for the night was a very impressive singer named PATRICK O'HARE who said he's really a country singer but sang "Summertime" instead, and hopefully he'll return again and sing some country songs. Until then, I hope to see you all this Saturday night when we will have JOEL BAKER back on piano. Until then, keep singing!

DO YOU REMEMBER THURSDAY NIGHTS IN THE  
TEN20 LOUNGE AT THE BEAUTIFUL BEL AGE HOTEL  
IN WEST HOLLYWOOD?

IT SEEMS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY BUT IT WAS REALLY AROUND 2003 - 2006. THE NIGHT STARTED WITH "THE GUEST STARS SHOWCASE" AND 4 PERFORMERS DOING A SHORT SET AROUND 15 MINUTES AND 3 TO 4 SONGS. RON SNYDER, THE HOUSE PIANIST, PLAYED FOR THEM AND AFTER A SHORT BREAK WE CONTINUED THE NIGHT WITH OPEN MIC. IT REALLY WAS A FABULOUS ROOM WITH GREAT FOOD, GORGEOUS BABY GRAND, AND THAT VIEW! 

I HAD SO MANY DIGITAL PHOTOS FROM THOSE NIGHTS BUT LOST THEM WHEN MY COMPUTER DIED ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO. BUT I RECENTLY FOUND THE PAPTER PROGRAM I PUT TOGETHER FROM THE VERY LAST NIGHT THERE AFTER THE HOTEL WAS SOLD, IT'S NOW CALLED LONDON WEST. ANYWAY, I COMPILED A LIST OF ALL 383 GUEST STARS FROM THE 140 SHOWS ON A SPECIAL WEB PAGE IN CASE ANYONE WANTS TO SEE ALL THE INCREDIBLE SINGERS WHO CAME TO BE PART OF IT. I ALSO HAVE LOTS OF OLD "MINI - DVD'S" TAKEN OF A LOT OF THE SHOWS. ONCE I LEARN HOW TO TRANSFER THEM TO THE WEB I WILL POST THEM FOR YOU TO SEE.

"THE POWER OF ADVERSITY"           
 
Adversity can illuminate a powerful part of you. It can make you feel scared and frustrated, yet it can also give you the strength and inspiration to do something about your problems.

Look honestly at what has gone wrong and make the choice not to stand for it anymore. Then do whatever is necessary, day by day, step by step to improve your life in a positive way.

Grab the mistake, the difficulty, the hardship, and turn it on its head. Take whatever has held you back, and with the power of commitment, transform it into a fuel that pushes you forward. 

Own the adversity and the positive energy it sparks within you. 
Transform each setback into something good. Something to be thankful for. And focus all it's power on making your life better.
