Some of you have not heard the news; my car was wrecked Saturday night. Ryan and I were driving home from Lexington and a(an) opossum waddled out in front of the car. Ryan was driving and he swirved left then right and left again and the car was out of control and spun off the road into the ditch and slammed the back into an old stone wall. The good thing was we were fine, no injuries. It was a bit scary, a little frustrating, and more stuff to deal with than we want to right now. At the same time it is probably the best time to be without a car since we are getting ready to head to Europe. This is definitely a catalyst to get the Mini Cooper purchased. Ho hum.

This was the announcement on the UofL School of Music website.
Congratulations! to Brad Ritchie & the School of Music Symphony Orchestra!
One of our UofL School of Music students, Brad Ritchie (composer), played a huge role in the making of the movie "Perspective" which received a Gold medal (instead of a statuette) at the 2006 Oscar Awards presentation, where 13 young filmmakers were honored for their short films at the 33rd annual Student Academy Awards on June 10, 2006. To watch a video clip of the movie Perspective, visit this USA Today website.
Note that our very own Symphony Orchestra performed the music written solely by Brad Ritchie!
