Girl Singers Galore

Seth and I have the next two Sundays blocked off for our (well, my) Girl Singers:

Lucie Arnaz with Peter Nero and the Philly Pops (in Philadelphia, of course): Sunday, March 2 at 3 p.m.

Everything Is Rosie (a tribute to Rosemary Clooney), in Garden City, Long Island, N.Y.: Sunday, March 9 at 2 p.m.

If you're a friend or just a fan, hope to see you there.

Lucy's Cow Tureen

I waited more than a month to start posting about Lucy, which might surprise those who think of me as a Lucy nut ...

Lucille Ball had really nice taste in her kitchenware. Her son and daughter-in-law are auctioning a cow soup tureen to raise money for their nonprofit Boulder City Ballet Company.

Read about the tureen or see more photos and bid. Unfortunately, I don't have the space to properly display this lovely item, so I won't bid on it.

You can see another example of Lucy's taste in home furnishings in Tom Watson's article about the "wrap event" for Universal City Studio's "Lucy: A Tribute" in Hollywood.
