Opera Week



OK, I won the mystery person contest yesterday. The woman pictured was Sybil Tancredi. She was an opera star in the early 1900's. So yes, this is going to be opera week. Today, we feature a photograph of Marguerite Carre. She also was an opera star from that era. I can actually share a recording of her in the clip below:


DOMESTIC UPDATE:

I am pleased to announce that the Lovely Ms. EAM is on the job in Africa. She is working at the Village, and is already working to take care of the children. This last week she was able to participate in a "rescue" where they went into the slums and brought out a starving child. She will now be working to nurse him back to health. This picture shows her with a child that was rescued several years ago.

  1. Well I was on the right track yesterday. I had guessed 2 different opera stars, but I have never heard of Sybil Tancredi.

    Good job Ms. EAM

    I see that the ENM has stalled down in Mexico. I was hoping that it would come farther North and push that high pressure system out of Texas and give you guys some very badly needed rain.

  3. Roger,
    Tropical Storm Nate turned out to be all bark and no bite. Lots of "show" but no real content. Last I heard it was meandering around south will little hope of producing anything useful.

  4. Roger,
    I had a wonderful victory breakfast. Mrs. PJM made me a wonderful omelet in this little clay egg cooker. It really worked well.

  5. I much enjoyed seeing the picture of Sybil Tancredi and listening to the clip with her singing. Opera Week is going to be great! Although she came later in the 20th century, I hope you may have a photo of Maria Callas for us.

    The lovely Ms. EAM looks terrific! She will be helping a lot of people and showing them that God loves them.

  6. Beautiful picture today! Mr. PJM, you have a wonderful daughter. EAM looks so happy to be there and that little boy is so happy that she is. Absolutley warmed my heart. Give her our best New Hampshire regards.

    PS) I'll bet yesterday's mystery contest would have been a walk through the park for "The Evil Nmass", LOL.

  7. Here is hoping that we also get some pictures of the country where Ms EAM is working. I also looked at some opera singers, but I didn't find Sybil. Sigh.

  8. really, is that recording from 1907? or thereabouts? Bless your daughter's heart. That is a mission, indeed, a calling! I, too, hope that you all get some rain, and soon. I feel like I'm "texting", putting so much communication into little bitty sound bites. Hope you receive all my thoughts and emotions and good wishes.

  9. oh yeah, and sounds like me and my husband. You had the chance to go out and have a great Victory Breakfast . . . and you stayed in and ate Mrs. PJM's good cooking. In my case, it is my husband's good cooking.
