Hi Andrea, The hula hoop kid is great, but that's not really what I'm writing about. Remember Emily Braden, the young woman you so kindly posted my comment about when she was looking for a place to stay in New York city? Well she found a place, and today she auditioned for Amateur Night at the Apollo Theatre. She's thrilled to have been chosen to appear there on May 6th, so just thought I'd follow up to let you know that. She is truly an amazing talent, destined for greatness in many walks of music, so...if you happen to have any music fans among your circle of friends, and/or if you want your little darling to be exposed to some new greatness while still in utero, have your friends and yourself GO SEE EMILY. I promise you won't regret it, and you'll be able to say you saw her when. I'm so excited that I might come to New York for the first time in my life (I've always wanted to). I expect that Emily will increasingly be playing around NY in other places as well. Her myspace page is http://www.myspace.com/emilybraden. Cute belly photos by the way.
