She Won! She Won! She Won!

Keiraville's Emma Young has tonight (Sunday) won the 2010 Sydney Eisteddfod Operatic Aria Competition. You may remember that I talked about her last month and that I was very excited that she won her way to the final. She has only been singing opera for six months, this is the first time she has entered this competition (obviously) and nobody really expected her to win first time round. In fact I mentioned the gorgeous young man from New Zealand who seemed to be the stand-out favourite. Well, tonight he earned an honourable mention by Richard Bonynge, who announced the winners. And when Angela Brun was announced as the runner-up, our hearts were in our mouths for Emma! And she was announced the winner!!! Amazing

She has won
  • $5000 cash
  • $35,000 scholarship and return economy airfare to undertake overseas study for the operatic stage including vocal tuition, languages and stagecraft
  • opportunity to attend rehearsals at Opera Australia in Melbourne or Sydney and observe an opera throughout the stages of its production
Emma's life has just changed forever. For those of you who might know about operatic arias she sang
  1. 'O luce di quest'anima' from Linda di Chamounix by Donizetti
  2. 'Je veux vivre' from Romeo and Juliet by Gounod
and she was fabulous - obviously! To celebrate we had to have coffee and cake at a cafe in the Opera House forecourt before driving back to Wollongong.

And now I can't sleep, so that's why this is coming to you so soon after the event.

Oil pulling does a hell of a whole lot more than brighten your tooth.

Google this ancient remedy... it is used to DETOX your entire system of bacteria, virus and fungal infections.

It is seriously amazing, consume it, massage eachother
with it, bathe in it. Only caution with swishing for 15 mins (Oil pulling) is not a lot more than 3 times per week if you
have dental amalgams fillings, for exactly the same reasons above,
it pulls it into your mouth and you may possibly absorb also considerably into
your system.

I am not italian, and i truly got nothing towards
them, but I listen to females expressing that italian males are
soooo scorching, and gorgeous, with model looks, but these very
same women are with guys who're not italian. And if they are italian, they certainly don't appear like versions.
I imply I can comprehend the aggravation of females when they see guys
ogling at models/skinny women, and it makes me question whether or not my bodily look is suitable or not.
So my question is are guys of other ethnicities much less appealing?
is it a fantasy of each and every woman to be by having
an italian dude?

It often annoys me in comic discussions when some men and
women try to assert that the source material for Superman is
inherently boring. You don't grow to be a pop icon for seventy five years by being boring. Is he overpowered? Sometimes maybe, but it is nonetheless possible to script intriguing story lines about him, as Paul Dini and Dwayne McDuffie demonstrated in DCAU (animated works).

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to
no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!
