Mr Cardinal bought me a Very Special Gift the other day...
It came in an elegant white box..
Yes, I have finally come out of the Dark Ages, and have my first iPhone!
I never thought I'd fall in love, with an electronic gadget - of any kind...
But of course, I became addicted in one day, and am on a very steep learning curve.
Downloaded my first App today: Tiffany & Co.
While investigating the beguiling possibilities of having the Internet in my hand or handbag at all times, I have spent the past four days listening in to ABC Classic FM radio's CLASSIC 100 MUSIC IN THE MOVIES countdown, the results of a recent poll.
As a confirmed Romantic, I rather fancied Lara's Theme from Doctor Zhivago to win - I have had this sheet music since I was a girl...
But no, it came in at No.5.
ET came in second last, at 99 - surprised, I rather liked that score.
Here are the final ten:
10 - Schindler's List (1993)
9 - The Piano (1993)
8 - Out of Africa (1985)
7 - The King's Speech (2010) (Beethoven Piano Concerto No 5)
6 - Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
5 - Doctor Zhivago (1965)
4 - Chariots of Fire (1981)
3 - The Lord of the Rings (2001)
2 - Star Wars Films
1 - The Mission (1986)
Some surprises right throughout, but we enjoyed the fun of it, and the guessing games. While I like the music from The Mission, I was surprised it won. A certain little grandson in Canada would love to know Star Wars themes did so well - he sings Darth Vader's theme all day long!
Speaking of small boys, did you see the Google header today - just for Maurice Sendak's 85th birthday. All the Wild Things had a party!
I loved it...
I've been out having cake and laughter, and doing a few stitches of embroidery, at my friend J's. That rhubarb cake was Superb...
Princess Madeleine of Sweden was married this week.
Definitely a day for tiara watching, and lovely pastel gowns.
Here is her sister, Crown Princess Victoria:
Somebody is going to be a lovely Queen one day ..
Have a delightful week
