Today is Kathleen’s birthday!

We had a very special day. First to church at Chapel of St. Andrew. Then off to the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami to see Romeo & Juliet by Gounod. The opera was very well done with high quality voices, good acting and effectively staged. The orchestra was both great and unobtrusive in support.

Then it was off to Tavolino’s for dinner with a nice bottle of Napa cabernet. All told, a wonderful weekend, even if the weather was a washout.

On another note, todays comics had a wonderful gag about being a “professional scientist” inĀ Pearls Before Swine apropos my April 25, 2012 post.
