I need to know what you need to know...

I am waiting for a little bird to tell me...what your question would be...I have a serious request for all the "Sound Of Music" lovers out there...If you could ask anything of the seven Von Trapp 'kids' in the movie... What would you ask? 
What burning inquiry have you had for years about a certain scene?...a rumor you've heard?... a behind the scenes query?...
Ask your family...ask your friends...ask your Facebook peeps... What have you always wanted to know about The Sound of Music? 
Write your questions in my blog COMMENT box ...

I need to know what YOU need to know....Won't you help us discover those burning questions you have always wanted answered???
And in advance Thank you from all of us and 'Mi'...

happy haunting...

well that was fun....

So today was that 45th reunion of the entire cast of The Sound of Music. Oprah said it was the first time we had all been together for an interview since the movie had been released. Though we have been interviewed as a group...and with Julie before, it was great and such a pleasure to have Christopher Plummer with us for this reunion on Oprah.  The night before we had filmed the show in Chicago, we had all met  with Julie and Chris for a lovely dinner and caught up on what we had all been doing over the years. That was really fun. 

How lovely were those Von Trapp grandchildren when they sang "Edelweiss"? Did it make you all teary eyed?

Did you hear the announcement about our book that will be out in October 2011?  We are very excited about it. No one can quite tell the story of our Sound of Music tales quite like we can and we will, first hand. I have wanted to do this 'scrapbook' of our behind the scenes adventures for years. So hang on for that...It will be here before you know it.

Thanks for watching...

where am i? where am i going?

Can you guess where I am here? Summer seems like it was so long ago. We've had some rain here in LA...which reminds us that it is October already. Halloween is right around the up...the holidays.

I have been going non stop. This weekend a brand new gallery is opening called...Gallery 8. I am very excited that my art.ography (my mixed media and hand painted photographs) will be exhibited here on a permanent basis along with seven other artists. If you are in the area, drop on by for a look around. It's around the corner on Woodbridge, off Tujunga Village, which has some rocking stores and restaurants.  If you can't come by this weekend, drop by anytime.

I don't usually talk politics...but I can't wait till the constant barrage for the election is over. All I can say is...if we want bullying to stop in our schools and with our children...let's lead by example...start with the politicians... Turn off the bad mouthing, rotten attitudes, put downs, blatant intolerance, intentional divisions, lack of respect, people bashing and downright rudeness...stop just makes me cringe...and while I am ranting here...I don't get why people pretend to be what they aren' being a poser is something to be proud of? Be authentic for heavens sake...and if you don't like what you on one said this life was easy...buck up...grow up......ahhh...I feel better now...

crescendo: to grow in force or loudness.

You say crescendo...I say ...web spot extraordinaire created by Jenny Doh, ex-editor of Stampington and Art Saves advocate. All this week I am featured on the website  Have you visited there? It is definitely worth the visit. You will find some of your favorite artists, their stories, their favorite things, and you will find lots of artists whose work you have never seen before and are happy to discover. 
The links change below my picture every day this week, and it will turn you on to a few of my favorite places to visit online. Crescendoh is one big network, an exchange between artists and tales of creative passion. Well worth the ride...
