A Musical Interlude

Hi everyone!

I don't usually do any types of review or promotion on the Blog, but today will be an exception.  Last night Kypros and I headed to Toronto to see Ben Harper at Massey Hall.  Kypros and I both love Ben's music and collectively have seen him quite a few times.  Our favourite concert to date was at Radio City Music Hall, NYC.  But people, last night, he was in rare form. 

Normally, a concert is 2 hours, right?  Well this beautiful acoustic evening was turned into a whopping 3 hours or so of amazing music.  I also have to give kudos to the opening act, Luke Spehar.  Ben got on stage (on time) at 8:45pm and played until midnight - no break, no 'costume change', no correographed dance routines, no special F/X.  Just one man and about 15 different guitars.  If you ever get a chance to get to a Ben Harper concert, go!

Now, to make this a true Blue post, I have to say that both Zoë and Coullah spent the evening hanging out.  Both were super good and when we returned home late into the evening, Coullah was there to sleepily greet us at the door. 

More Blue news next post - including a calendar update!

Can your Blue say Cheese?

We know they LOVE cheese, but can they say it??

We are in the process of designing the full colour, 2013 Blue Picardy Spaniel Calender.  Although we have received some *fantastic* photos, we would like more!

This calendar will be in a different format from that of the 2012 version.  Not to mention it was our very first attempt and needless to say, we had a couple of 'proofing problems'.  Thanks to everyone who put up with the mayhem of last year's attempt!

We will credit all photos (unless you wish to remain anonymous - that's OK too!) We promise that version 2.0 will be PERFECT!!!
Please sumbit your images (Raw, jpg, TIFF or EPS format work best) to zoeandcoullah@gmail.com or to the Blue Picardy Club of Canada at BluePicardy1@gmail.com.

Calendars will be ready earlier this year - in plenty of time for gift-giving!  Details regarding price will be available soon.  Proceeds from the sale of the BPS Calendar cover our costs of production/mailing and help support the activities of the Blue Picardy Club of Canada.
