Thursday, July 15, 2004 

Last night we met our friends R. & N. at the Commons and we enjoyed this year's Shakespeare in the Park production "Much ADO About Nothing".

The play was absolutely wonderful. The actors were great, so professional that you feel as if you were watching a movie or a play on a real theater. The set was really nice and the lighting was just right. The costumes were beautiful and the music went very well with the play.

I was so impressed with the whole production, I guess I wasn't expecting that level of professionalism; performances on the park tent to be more casual and relaxed, and sometimes they are not even  taken as seriously as the ones shown on real theaters, but not this one -  Much ADO About Nothing was fantastic. I highly recommend it.

The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company surpassed all my expectations. I liked it so much, that I'll try to see it again. The brilliant play was directed by Steven Maler which is the Vice President of Artistic Programming of the Wang Center for the Performing Arts and the founding and Artistic Director of the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company.

We had a very good time last night. Early that day, we thought the rain was going to ruin the play, but we were given a break. It did rain early in the day, but by 6 PM the rain was gone and the Play started as planned at 8 O'clock.

Our friends R. & N. brought all types of Sandwiches and got there just at the right time to get some of the best seats in the house (they had a nice blanket in front of the stage - behind the rentable VIP-RESERVED beach chairs). DB and I brought the beverages (sodas, lemonade and water) and right there seating in front of the stage we had our mid-summer night picnic, it was great!

The last time we saw R. & N. was early in the Spring when they came over for brunch and brought a Dominican Republic album - that they put together after our wedding. We enjoyed some of the photographs they took during our wedding weekend celebration. It was great to remember such special time in our lives.

After the first half of the play was over, as they turn on the lights and we were getting up to stretch our legs - I noticed something interesting on N.'s hand, a little spark on her fingers lighting up in the middle of the night and just as I started to realize what it was, I could not help but scream and ask "are you guys engaged?" and they response was "YES". I screamed once again, "I can't believe it" I couldn't be more happy for them. I've known R. for a few years now and he is such wonderful person, and I must say the N. is just right girl for him, DB and I liked her from the moment we met her.

Congratulations R. & N.!!! We are so very happy for you, and the best is yet to come. May you have a fun & joyous engagement, and most important a wonderful life together. I'm sure your wedding will be just beautiful.

back to a busy short week...

Thursday, July 8, 2004 

I absolutely love the 4th of July celebrations. DB's family gathers together to chat, joke, eat and play - and then eat some more. I'm not kidding when I say that I ate 2 or 3 hamburgers a day. I'm not a big fan of hamburgers, but that changes completely each Fourth of July at the Bradford house; I just can't get enough pork-roll which is added to every hamburger (along with cheese and ketchup). Pork Roll is a type of Taylor's ham that is very popular in New Jersey; it looks like a big salami, but tastes better than any ham you ever had.

The fire works were magnificent. As always, they started a bit late, but the city of Milltown really outdid itself this year.  The fireworks were just beautiful. We lie down blankets on the grass and watched the fireworks from the park.

Now, I'm back to work and for a change - to the gym as well. It's amazing what a bit of exercise can do to you when you are out of shape and overstuffed with hamburgers. My arms and shoulders are so sore.

Hope your had a great Independence day celebration. We certainly did!

Oh! Oh! Did I mentioned that we watch Spiderman over the weekend? We loved it! You should go out and see it, if you liked the first one, you'll love number II.

Have a wonderful week. I'll be back with more honeymoon/Hawaii pictures. Thanks for stopping by my corner. Come back soon!
