Why are the same three films selected for sing-along nights: Grease, Sound of Music, and Rocky Horror Picture Show?
Determined to put a stop to this and introduce some diversity, I asked an unsuspecting table of diners last evening: Why not Funny Girl? One diner felt the film had received too much bad press when first released in 1968 because Omar Sharif, a Franco-Arabic actor, was playing romantic lead to a young Jewish Barbara Streisand. He didn't know that Streisand had earned an Oscar for her performance. Another diner felt the story was too dated (like Maria in the Alps isn’t).

I love reading and singing to my 7-month old, and while I always knew it was fun for my baby to watch me act out the itsy bitsy spider climbing the water spout, I didn’t realize how much these types of fingerplays and rhyming songs actually impacted her healthy brain functionality! Score one for mom!!

Paul McCartney was in town for a riveting show that was a collection of hits from his long career, with a heavy emphasis on Beatles' tunes.
So what's not to like about that? Well, to be honest, I never thought I'd see Paul in concert since I don't see many big shows anymore, considered myself a "John guy," never really liked Wings, and haven't kept up with Paul's current catalog of music. But I have loved the Beatles since I was a very young child, and now my oldest son carries the Fab Four torch, making it clear to me often that he really wanted to see a Beatle. So I thought, what better birthday present for an eleven-year-old boy who loves music?
