Upcoming Performances and More

A couple of my favorite singers will be performing in the New York area soon, both on September 11.

The first is Rachel Fuller. She will be at the Barnes & Noble, 675 Sixth Avenue, in Chelsea, New York, in a prelude to her gig at NYC's Joe's Pub(425 Lafayette Street) September 14th. As I have mentioned on here before she is very much like Sarah McLachlan with a bit of an edge.

The second will be Montgomery Delaney at The Lazy Lounge, 152 Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains, N.Y. at 7 p.m. I met Monty in 1999 when we were both residents of southern Westchester, now coincidentally we both again live near each other. I have fond memories of seeing him at the Guitar and Pen in the north Bronx. He's had a very interesting life being a former New York City police officer, marine, and now a lawyer, and his vast life experiences come out in his music. He has a few guests joining him at the Lazy Lounge as well.

I have links to both artists so if you want further info or even if you want to give them a listen that is a possibility by just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

A couple of loyal readers sent me some interesting information recently so I would like to pass that along.

The first being that Greenwich resident and good guy Charlie Glazer has been nominated by President Bush to be ambassador to El Salvador, pending confirmation by the Senate he would replace H. Douglas Barclay. The 63-year-old Glazer is an investment banker and is married with three children. I met him on numerous occasions while being part of the sports broadcasting team at WGCH over the last few years. Congratulations Charlie!

The next item is that a new assault ship has been built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center. The USS New York is expected to launch in the summer of 2007. The massive ship was designed for special-ops missions against terrorists and is capable of carrying a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready U.S. Marines.

Below I have provided the link to a very interesting read regarding what happened to the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. This is a very interesting piece. John Loftus is interviewed and I will say that he is probably the most well-informed guy around when it comes to Iraq and terrorism, so I take what he says very seriously.

Finally, can anyone name me one decent movie that is out in theaters right now and is worth seeing?

Sean - Thanks for the info on these two artists (Rachel Fuller and Montgomery Delaney). I'd like to check them out. The Lazy Lounge looks like a good place, and we're always looking for new places that are fun. A place where we don't feel, shall we say, old.

Movies? I've heard great things about "Little Miss Sunshine."
