• Upcoming trips

    2-5 November Atlantic City

    November 16 to 28 Berlin to Prague on the Elbe river with Kim.
  • Theatre and Music

    October 16 Saw the Tziporela Theater Group's presentation of its comedy show; ODD BIRDZ at the Players Theatre. It is a show that must me seen to be believed! The 8 or 9 very talented young performers act out a series of vignettes at breakneck speed for two fun-filled hours. Their talents include acrobatic dance and singing. You have to be alert to catch the dialogue as it rushes by

    October15 Spent an uproarious hour at Hunter College listening to the punning of the super wordsmith, Richard Lederer. His ridicule of the modern- day mangling of the English language and grammar was brilliant--kept us in stitches. His humor is reflected in the titles of his many books; "Get thee to a Punnery" and "Sleeping dogs don't Lay" are examples.

    September 24 Saw TACT's revival of "The Killing of Sister George". Britishers of a certain maturity will remember that Frank Marcus based his play on the public furor caused by the death of the fictional "Grace" of the BBC's series: " The Archers", and the, equally fictional, "Mrs. Dale" of "Mrs. Dale's Diary"?

    This production plays up the Lesbian undertone of the original play and loses some of the drama that I remember of the real grief felt by those loyal radio listeners. By-the-way, "The Archers" is still running!

Ben’s Page


The content of this bBenbloglog is directed mainly, but not entirely, towards friends and travelling companions who may now still be numbered among the hundreds in spite of the attrition of the years . Their varied interests cover the world’s spectrum. The aim is a personal one,  it is to keep the conversation and exchange of ideas going for as long as I am able. The blog, then, will give viewers a fairly continuous idea of where I am and what I am up to so that they can respond when an interest is sparked. I hope that my camera will help prompt your comments and e-mails

The “Recent Posts” widget (sidebar) on the right will give you an idea of the travels I have  just made and of  my New York impressions. Below this is an index of my ‘Memoirs’ chapters which can now be read in the order in which they were written.

On the left-hand side you will see a notice of my upcoming trips followed by a notice  of my theatre- and concert-going and what my thoughts of the performances were. Below this, there is  a widget which allows those interested to register and receive notices of new posts automatically.

Notes:Click on the pictures, most will enlarge to full screen and give much greater detail
