The first month of this New Year has begun with a few private events, where I believe my audiences enjoyed not only the Neil Diamond songs but a bit of Dean Martin, Roger Miller and even some Sinatra. They seemed to know all the words and sang along. We all had a good time.
We had great crowds at the Metropolis in Arlington Heights, actually that was a sell-out, and then once again in Wisconsin Dells with good crowd participation, lots of photos being taken and interesting conversations after the shows.
Here’s our performance of Neil Diamond’s, “I’m a Believer”, from that show.
I have some of the easiest ways in the world to impress your significant other this Valentines Day.
- 3 Cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 can of Eagle Brand evaporated milk (14 oz)
- 1 Tbls. Vanilla
- Melt chocolate chips with condensed milk over low heat
- Stir in vanilla.
- Pour into medium bowl and chill until firm.
- Shape into 1 inch balls and roll into desired coating, such as coconut, cocoa powder, powdered sugar or finely chopped nuts.
- Chill again until firm.
Add a bottle of Merlot, Pinto Noir, Riesling, Muscat or a dessert wine.
Package this all up, tie with a ribbon, maybe include a rose, or 2…..and they can Never say
