NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)
Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

A Case of Nerves
I feel like my reading consumption has slowed during September, but I have a good reason! Tonight is the debut of the solo version of the DIVA Show! I've never been a nervous performer, but we've been working like crazy programing the new light show, learning new songs and trying to remember the lyrics to old ones. It's been a lot of work but worth it. This show is extra special to me. We gave the new light show a test run when Tony and I played Labor Day Weekend, and the crowd loved it! In fact, we were told we have a better light show than Def Leppard. Nothing like wild exaggeration to feed a person's ego! :-)
Anyway, the reason I'm a little concerned about tonight is because five days ago I came down with something that left me completely unable to sing. My throat was wiped out. I panicked, of course, but with the help of some antibiotics, cold medicine and very little speaking, I think I'll be okay. I just have to pace myself. Since I doubt I will be up for the vocal gymnastics required for Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" (insert a very annoyed sigh here), I thought I'd post a previous performance of it for your entertainment. A little bonus track that tonight's audience probably won't get to hear. That's because you all are special! :-) Enjoy!
NOTE: The lights in this video are not the new show. I have to get some video of those for you! It's like a traveling discoteque!
