Wow, recent photo? Hi Irene. Nice engineering on Torres - thanks!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:07pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Hi Irene, hello one and all, nice snowy photo, Irene, I am guessing that is next to Central Park
  Mon. 12/16/13 12:07pm van:

Somehow I don't think this album title gets announced...
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:16pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Guys! Yes, that is Central Park West, but not a recent photo. However, it looked a bit like that after the recent snowfall. @Van, you are correct! We'll leave it to the written playlist.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:16pm DCE:

Hi Irene. This sounds nice'n'icy.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:17pm Mike East:

I'll second van's comment on the Torres set. She sounded great!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:17pm DCE:

I took a winter wonderland hike on saturday...nothing like the woods in winter...err..late fall...
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:27pm kat330:

H'Irene and all here! Love the wintry photo. 7?th st?
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:29pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Kat! It's 86th Street & Central Park West.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:32pm kat330:

Ah! Tried to read the sign for the street, but couldn't. Very familiar with CPW and have close friends near there on 87th!

Philo took a wintry scene in front of our home last Thursday eve, primarily for that spectacular oak tree behind and to the east of us. But it was also while we still had a dusting of snow on the ground.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:48pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Kat, lovely photo, your homestead is looking very festive
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 12:49pm kat330:

Thanks, Sean! It's only a small touch we do, but amazing how cheery some little pinpoints of light can be to the spirit. :)
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:08pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Irene, I saw the film last week, lovely movie, I thought June Squibb as Woody's wife was great.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:11pm Irene Trudel:

@Sean, June Squibb is now in the American version of "Getting On," now airing on HBO. She's a Spitfire!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:15pm Irene Trudel:

@Kat, That picture is so cozy! I'm hoping to buy our Xmas tree after the show and decorate tonight. That's a nice inspiration.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:16pm kat330:

Speaking of spitfires, we're now watching the first season of "Veep." Does the U.S. now import ALL of its "new" show ideas from the UK?
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:18pm Irene Trudel:

It certainly seems that way. I find Veep a little difficult to watch, with its cringe-worthy situations.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:18pm Sean in Bristol UK:

And the US seems to do a better version, 'House of Cards' being an example
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:19pm kat330:

@Irene: Thank ye (my concept, Philo's execution ;). Mmm, the indelible smell (can a smell BE indelible?) of fresh evergreen in the home! Unfortunately our place is too tiny to support a tree with no basement or garage for all my instruments and gear, along with JT's office and art stuff.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:22pm kat330:

@Sean: Yes, we saw at least some of HoC. But I figure we're getting into the US version more because it seems more familiar politics. And yes, Irene, cringe-worthy IS the truth! Like the Yoghurt / stomach flu / carry to the limo scene!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:23pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Ooh, another track from Tash Parker, lovely
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:46pm kat330:

Thanks for all the lovely sounds, Irene. So nice to take the radio into the kitchen and have your soundtrack as I dice and sauté.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 1:49pm Irene Trudel:

Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:01pm Mike East:

man, I wish I was dicing and sauteing. sick of work. sick of commuting. sick of complaining
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:03pm kat330:

Hey, Mike! Back in the LR to see your note -- I'll send some sauté odors your way at least }}}}}}}}}}
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:04pm Sean in Bristol UK:

What a beautiful set, RIP Jim
  Mon. 12/16/13 2:04pm van:

That was fantastic!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:10pm Mike East:

mmm yum. smells delicious, kat. now I'm hungry. time for lunch!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:13pm kat330:

@Mike: Bon appetit! Now back at the keyboard after the longest kitchen stint needed. Monday is when I usually have all burners fired up and preparing bits to go with meals throughout the week. So it's a definite melange of aromas in the house now.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:19pm kat330:

So is that album title an imperative request? ;)
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:21pm kat330:

Ohh, guess it is with that lyric!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:25pm common:

@mike: soooooo sick of work. boo!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:27pm kat330:

Not an UNcommon sentiment it would seem.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:33pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Fantastic set, Irene
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:34pm Mike East:

I gotta get some Juana Molina.
  Mon. 12/16/13 2:36pm rick:

Final feliz = "happy ending"
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:40pm mauri:

Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:43pm kat330:

Moi, mauri!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:44pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for correcting my faulty Spanish, @rick!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:44pm common:

Ha! this is great!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:44pm mauri:

Iltaa, Kat! Looks like all the snow that came down is now thawing away boo.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:46pm kat330:

Ours is all gone now, yes. Hey, we got a "care" paketti from Helsinki on Saturday. It has salmiakki for Philo (yuck!) and Karl Fazer dark chocolate for me. :)
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:48pm mauri:

Nice one! Both go well with beer!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:49pm kat330:

Ewww, I can't handle the salmiakki. What is Tupla Maxi, by the way? Nothing in English on its packaging, but some sort of candy bar.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:51pm mauri:

Oh it's almondchip chocolate bar.
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:53pm Mike East:

got any brown fudge cheese?
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:53pm kat330:

Almonds, ah. More for Philo then. He enjoys the beer, but I like dark chocolate with wine.

@Irene: Gotta tend to my stove now, so let me say thank you for all this afternoon's sweet sounds! Bye everyone!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:55pm kat330:

@Mike: quickly --um, no, but I do have some brownies! :)

Moi, moi!
  Mon. 12/16/13 2:57pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene!
Avatar Mon. 12/16/13 2:58pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for tuning in everybody! Catch you next week.
  Mon. 12/16/13 2:58pm van:

Enjoyed much! Thanks Irene!
