Ladies and gentlemen, may I please have your attention? At great expense, we have acquired a time machine. We will now transport you all back to 1969 where you can enjoy the nimble fingers of that flamboyant showman Liberace, as he tickles the ivories as well as your sense of humor.

Prepare to be amazed at his dexterity on the keyboard - particularly towards the end of his performance. Oh, and during the show, you are invited to take a vocal part, so make sure your mouths are empty.

Thank you for your time, now hold on tight while we whisk you back to those good old days.

When you're ready, just click here.

Hmmmm...I've looked it over 3 times Dan and I still can't decide. Do you have any suggestions? I was thinking perhaps dessert first.

Welcome Blisstasista, just come on in, sit down and grab a menu. Your waiter will be Along Soon. Err, that's his name - I don't know how long it'll be before he takes your order though.

Yes thank you I'm feeling much better. Laughter truly is the best medicine.

So is a grey goose extra dirty martini with bleu cheese olives. Wish I had one!

I am always amazed when I watch a drummer in full flight Dan. His feet and hands are all moving in different ways and tempos and he obviously can't watch what each one is doing. I was particularly taken with his "cross hands" technique half way through that number. Fantastic.

Thanks for the drink Dan.

I think that would be called being in the zone.

Years ago Dan, during the 1950s, I heard Ronnie Verrell on drums. He was playing with Ted Heath's Orchestra and man could he beat those skins. The only reference I could find on him and Buddy Rich was when they played against each other on the Muppets show. Buddy played himself, while Ronnie played Animal. The only clips I can find of the show claim they are playing at half speed - if that's the case, I'd like to see and hear them at full speed.

I'm impressed with anyone who can paint images that are true to life Dan - I don't care if they are human or not.

Having seen this, it occurs to me that maybe all of the cave paintings that have been attribute to ancient mankind, may in fact, have been created by these fellows.

hmmm you might be right, I know that mankind under estimates the animal world just because we can't communicate with them the way we communicate!

Ladies and gentlemen, tonight's floor show will be starting in just a moment. I would however, advise the ladies to spend the next three-and-a-half minutes in the powder-room - you may find the lyrics offensive.

Men, I think you will appreciate the show, but may find the lyrics repetitive and boring BUT, I'm sure you won't complain about the performer.

And, I defy you to sit still.

Yes, happy birthday Luana and may you have many more of them.

Just don't overdo the celebrating or you may finish up on the floor under one of the tables.

I know, been there, done that - frequently
