JCPenny sounds more like Debenhams. Marks & Spencer is as much a food store as a clothes store (and it's not a department store). It's food is generally considered to be of high quality, somewhere in-between Selfridges and Waitrose.

True, but I was only referring to the selection of clothes at M&S which bears more than a passing resemblance to the fare at JC Penney. There is perhaps no precise equivalent to M&S in the US, unless it be Costco or Wal-Mart, neither of which I shop at. (Costco because a membership is not financially viable, Wal-Mart for political reasons.)

I am only speaking of the Seattle area. For classy food beyond the usual Safeway selection, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods have incredible stuff, and you shop with fellow liberals! wink

I really hope they have a Whole Foods near where I'm staying, they visit it all the time on Good Eats and it looks amazing. M&S is nothing like Costco. We have Costco here and it's awesome, I have a free membership.

There is a Whole Foods in Lakewood: https://maps.google.com/?q=303-935-5000

Did you get a free membership at Costco through the university?

But of course Costco may not be very practical for me as I do not have the freezer space (nor appetite) for a whole pig or half a steer, let alone 25 gallons of V-8. Back in the UK I never shopped at Costco, and here in the US, it is not financially advantageous for a small household.

OTH, the people watching is rather a sight to behold, and after the sheer amazement at the stock (mouthwash enough to float an aircraft carrier), one might casually ask why they could not have done better with the pizza.

There is some stuff they sell which is more appropriate. For example, dark chocolate chips in 750g tubs. It keeps for ages and is great for baking. I also will get pasta and rice, that sort of thing.

A friend of mine put me on his membership as a spouse, so I effectively get free membership haha

I was going to suggest The Wind in the Willows DVDs. Even though I see some on YT already and it's available on Amazon.

The Wind in the Willows
Sang softly to me
Follow my voice
Wherever it leads

From mountains and valleys
To deep rolling seas
Born on the wings of the breeze

So do I when not shopping at Trader Joe's.

Incredible experience, but the crew at TJ's are more helpful in choosing an appropriate bottle of wine, and they are so friendly.

BRAVO!

I don't know this piece that well but I didn't recognize the cadenza. Is that the usual one or something else?

Lovely!
From that clip, you did great!

BTW, I don't recognize the cadenza either. It's very good and I'm also curious whose it is. (We don't have one from Beethoven, do we....)

I second the above bravos.

Beethoven actually left three cadenzas (one unfinished), but it wasn't any of those.

Hopefully Bruce will tell us more about his adventure...

Wonderful.

Now speak out for everything else that happened (and who did you meet in Lakewood, CO btw!).

Bruce had a terrific performance. Standing ovation for the most part. The venue was cozy and intimate with a good acoustical balance between piano and orchestra. A very enjoyable evening!

Bravo, Bruce!

Oh wow, I didn't realise anyone from here was in the audience. Thanks for coming :-).

The cadenza is my own expanded version of one of beethovens
