With that avatar I can't ever read anything you write without hearing Liam Neeson's voice in my head.

Qui-Gon also has a very unique set of skills.

I recall some folks saying my avatar and nom-de-plume were "unfortunate", though no one ever explained why that was.

They just couldn't bring themselves to say it.

What a great ski trip! The night before our first skiing day the Sierras got about a foot of new snow, which was a lot for this winter. We didn't know, looking at conditions before leaving home, if there would be any snow at all so we were very happy. Those of us who went to San Francisco for a few days before the Tahoe portion also got three very sunny days there, which many of you know can be rare for that city.

Off to Australia in a few months. My singing group will be performing with choruses from other countries. It should be fun.

Hi Qui-Gon :)

I'm impressed :) Will you be touring or staying in one spot?

Just Sydney, but the trip will include local sightseeing in addition to (and in between) the performances. My choir will sing in four venues in Sydney, and all the choirs get together for a single performance of a piece that should be impressive--a few hundred voices can be stirring.

Oh, I'm sure I will. My group is very talented, yet they let me sing with them. It's like being invited to a great party when you hardly know anyone--just remain inconspicuous and don't do anything stupid, then you may have a good time.

By inconspicuous I presume you mean remembering to sing the same song as everyone else :) When you say Sydney, would all the choirs be singing in the opera house?

Even if not, it sounds really exciting! :)

All the choirs will have a chance in the Opera House, but perhaps not on the same day. I don't know where the massed choir will sing, but it will have to be a big venue for the chorus and orchestra.

Can't imagine a better place than the opera house for that - but I'm not sure what it's capacity is. Nearest I've ever come was when I was at school, and several school choirs collaborated on a big performance of the Radetsky March, I think it was, at some Town Hall or other. Each choir prepared separately and then we had one rehearsal about an hour before the performance. There were problems :)

That venue would very likely be the Sydney Entertainment Centre. ;-)

Good luck and have a good time.

Wow. Good on ya Qui-Gon, that's brilliant. I'm an Aussie and I haven't even been to the opera house. (It is 940 km away though.)

A short delay in Sydney was largely made up in flight by good tailwinds.

Someone ordered great weather for us in Sydney: upper 40ºs to lower 70ºs and sunny each day; not bad for Winter.

The singing was nice, but the highlight was the Opera House, which has the best acoustics I've ever experienced for both the audience and the chorus.

One storm (Iselle) went by with little overall damage, but another one (Julio) is yet to come. We hope it continues to veer North, away from the Islands.
