Kodak Moments : Remember When…

Article by Melissa Ladd

Raise your hand if you remember when we used to bring our camera film to the photo shop to get developed. Remember when we didn’t know what the images looked like beforehand? Remember the excitement we had when we would go pick them up!?! Oh I do, I remember those magical moments of opening that Kodak envelope with baited breath, hoping the shots came out how we had hoped, and even if the pictures that didn’t come out great they were precious, because they expose and illustrate a moment in our lives that we find important enough to capture and print onto photo paper. Remember when paper pictures were all we had?!?

It’s important not to forget the importance of pictures, real paper pictures. It’s important to remember to make hard copies of those precious moments, our favorite moments, because pictures are more than just an image to « like » or comment on on facebook or instagram, pictures are all that’s left from fleeting moments that pass all too quickly. KODAK MOMENTS has a new tool that helps us keep those moments so easily, that it’s as simple as using a smartphone app.

A love affair with French cheese! ~♥


Some who read this blog regularly, will know that I spent many long years intolerant to dairy. About ten years or so. That meant no cheese. Can you imagine!?! And then, one fine day in April 2014, I tested something that had dairy in it…and discovered that I felt no pain. So I tested some more, and I realized that maybe my body had changed it’s chemistry, since they tend to do that every seven to ten years. I began enthusiastically reintroducing dairy into my diet, and soon I was amorously indulging into the best and finest of cheeses that France has to offer. Our cheese budget went up. Before Chéri had no competition for those ivory blobs of moldy dairy in the fridge, but he soon realized that I was a true cheese devout, and we had to invest every week in much more cheese than before. In this article, I want to introduce to you a man with a plan, a concept, that originates in a profound love affair with French cheese

Gala Concert & Cocktail : Giveaway!

Sinfonietta Paris is a new Chamber Music orchestra and the brainchild endeavor of Michael Boone, former head of the music department at the University of Colorado. I met Michael at the Kooka Boora café at the same time I met Very-Intersting-and-talented-dude (which you’ll read about in my next  post!). Just another proof that Paris still attracts artists and amazing people with talent!

An artist and « activist » of sorts who wants to make sure classical music creation is something that is perpetuated more by young musicians and music professionals; he has created Sinfonietta. « Composed of nine to seventeen young professional artists who have trained at many of the world’s finest conservatories and festivals, Sinfonietta Paris is a vibrant new chamber orchestra based in Paris, France, dedicated expressly to musicians and soloists at the beginning of brilliant performing careers. » You can support them with donations here.
