    I totally find that the older I get the more "minnesotan" I get, the more the
    accent comes out, the more the little colloquialism rear their well coifed
    swedish heads (except I'm norwegian).

    Lately, I've also been channeling my inner-old-lady, driving my old lady car,
    crocheting my old lady lace, I even had old lady blue hair for a while.

    Heh ... it's endearing. There is this one actress, don't know her
    name, she did Minnesowta very well, you couldn't help but like
    her.

    Well, even I took up knitting again, in an extremely minorly way.

    I've learned to knit, but I'm not so good at it. I can pretty much just knit
    in the round and make a felted purse.
    I've been crocheting since I was a little kid.

    It's all in my trivia - filled mind :)


    Have you
    > ever spent any time here?



    I flew up in February 1980 for a flight attendant interview with Republic
    Airlines. Some pals who worked for them recommended I go, I checked into
    the hotel that they used saying "I'm with Republic..." (I forget the name of
    the hotel, it was downtown and was kind of a wierd place, it was built maybe
    c. 1948 or so. I say it's wierd because the halls and rooms had these
    linoleum tile floors, not carpet...). Hey, it was a free weekend trip. In
    February. In Minneapolis.

    The highlight of my trip was seeing George McGovern at the airport when I
    was flying back. Said "Hi" and shook his hand...very nice man.

    Another "Minnesota" thing is the superb series of ground - breaking high
    fidelity recordings made for the Mercury "Living Presence" label by the
    Minneapolis Orchestra under Antal Dorati in the 50's - 60's. They were and
    do remain seminal recordings even in this digital age (and they are all
    mostly still available). More info:

    http://www.xs4all.nl/~rabruil/mercury.html

    [...]

    "One of the earliest proofs of audio engineer Bob Fine's stereo technique is
    on CD. It is Mercury 432 005-2 with Kodály's 'Hary Janos Suite', and
    Bartok's 'Hungarian Sketches' and 'Roumanian Folk Dances', performed by the
    Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra conducted by Antal Dorati. The recording
    date: November 1956! Although Robert Blake who was Don Gabor's recording
    technician already recorded in stereo for the Remington label in November
    1953 with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra under Thor Johnson and with the
    Helsinki University Chorus (see the link on top of this page), and RCA
    followed in 1954, Bob Fine's stereo recording is unique because of the use
    of three microphones and the specific placement for three channels to
    capture the original orchestral balance."

    [...]

    DORATI

    "Antal Dorati was the conductor of the Dallas Symphony from 1945 until 1948.
    In 1949 he accepted the post of conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony
    Orchestra. Wilma Cozart was his secretary. She suggested that the orchestra
    from Minneapolis with their conductor Dorati could fill the [recording]
    void. That is how Dorati was contracted by Mercury and that is how Wilma
    Cozart joined the recording company. The contract with the Minneapolis
    Symphony was significant for the continued success of the Mercury label. It
    was not common that a small label hired such a big and rather expensive
    orchestra, especially when the contract was exclusive."

    [...]

    "In a spring day in 1956, Wilma Cozart phoned to invite me to lunch. As
    recorded music director of WQXR, the radio station of The New York Times, I
    kept in close touch with record executives and producers. But meeting with
    the head of Mercury's classical division was always a special treat. Now in
    its fifth year, the Living Presence recording team was still making news in
    Detroit, Rochester and Minneapolis. Its Overture 1812 thundered its way into
    the homes of audiophiles; balletomanes thrilled to the first complete
    recordings of the original scores of Tchaikovsky's three masterworks,
    Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty; and Ruffles & Flourishes was
    about to dazzle visitors to the annual Audio Fair..."

    [...]


    BTW IIRC that Minneapolis Orchestra recording of the _1812 Overture_ still
    holds as the top - selling classical record of all time...

    I can tell you how to make them.
    all they are are baby backs... but cut into smaller strips rather than
    a large chunk.
    first you have to get some bacon fat and slather it on there. not too
    much.. just brush it on there occassionally. and slow cook them under
    foil. that's all. you can make your own honey bbq sauce as well...
    guess how? honey and bbq. hope this helps.
