• Upcoming trips

    May 3-16 visiting London. Hotel and other details later

  • Theatre and Concerts

    March 15 "Ring Twice for Miranda", a new play by Alan Hruska. Difficult play to follow. Plot is either a comic farce or a deep philosophical one.

    Sunday, March 12 We took in the matinee "Peoples Symphony " concert--The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson trio performing an all-Russian program with their usual brilliance and in the evening, for something completely different, we went to the Irish Arts Center to hear six stand-up comedians perform in the "Sundays at Seven" show. By contrast, the three male performers used sophisticated and cleverly-written material, whereas two of the the female performers were more mundane and the third just could not get past the "F" word.

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
