Okay, so I have been listening to the group rhapsodize about Rush long enough that I took some CD's out of the library to check out what all the fuss is about
This is what I have. Where should I start?

Vapor Trails
Retrospective 3
Clockwork Angel

Not dragging this group into opera, operetta or classical, but if you want to have some good listening try Pink Martini and Los Angeles Guitar Quartet ( find their version of Pachebel's Canon if you can.

LOVE Popeye's for fried chicken and Chick Fil A for Chicken sandwiches and biscuits.
BK makes me sick. Literally. Last time I went, I got a chicken sandwich instead of the whopper (whoppers are tasty but kill my tummy), and could only eat 2 bites of teh chicken. So gross.
Same with Checkers burgers. NASTY!
My wife works in a pharmacy and told me, many cases of food poisoning come from fast food-type chicken sandwiches...something about the temperature the chicken's stored at.....Can't do Popeye's since a news segment a coupla years ago, about the guy up north, got Popeye's chicken and halfway through a piece, discovered it was a fried mouse....I almost projectile hurled, when the sad, black guy said...he'd already eaten half.....Wow.....

Nope. We have Carl's Jr., which I think is owned by Hardys. We also have Sonic. Their food is kinda ok I guess. I go there only for the drinks. Of course I'm not a big fan of fast food places anyway, so it doesn't really matter. When I go for fast food I usually get pho. <shrug>
It's hard to eat pho when you are driving though.

There was a place in a basement food court across from my office that made really excellent pho especially beef pho. It was enough for lunch and dinner. But a more trendy place opened at street level about a block and a half away and the basement place closed

Yeah I fell across someone named David Wang playing 4 separate tracks of violin to MUSE Hysteria. That was cool.

Start with Retrospective.
Use this wikii link as a guide and try to listen to the songs by album earlist to latest
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retrospective_I...

Then Vapor Trails.

Oh, and for a fuller appreciation, google the songs and get the lyrics. Neil Peart as an accomplished author, a very intelligent man, and his lyrics should be read as well as heard.

You're in for a treat!

i've found a couple of newer groups of string musicians that play some classical and some contemporary songs. cool as they are, britany spears isn't improved. and Welcome to the Jungle is just weird. one of them did a cool job iwth Coldplay.

i'm trying to find stuff that i can play at work that is calm(er) yet interesting. i have a few hours of classical, mostly strings (horns tend to get too... rile-me-up) and classical/spanish guitar, but i need a little more variety after awhile.

Do you use Pandora? You need to sign up but it is free and the ads are tolerable.

Start with one of the composers or performers you like and let them build a "station" for you. You need to interact with it for a while to help form things to your preference.Their algorithm is designed to make suggestions based on what you like . When you find stuff you like, get it from the library .

OK - what exactly is pho? Is it noodles?

It is broth with vermicelli-like rice noodles, slices of meat, a meat type dumpling, probably some slivered green onion. The good place put all that in one container and had bean sprouts separately to add in just before eating. there were 2 little cups with sauce to mix in. One was brown and probably a Vietnamese fish sauce or something similar and the other was a hot sauce. The brown sauce I considered necessary, the red hot sauce discretionary.There is probably other stuff as well.

Mimi will be the subject matter expert on this, I believe.

I am not sure I could find it but I saw a great Lolcat the other day of a surprised cat with wide eyes and mouth and the caption "Lesbians eat What?!!"
