RIP Eydie Gormé

Eydie Gormé passes away at age 84.   She's been a favorite of mine since I heard her sing with Los Panchos though I do remember her from the '60's with Blame it on the Bossa Nova or "Culpa en la Bossa Nova" in Spanish.   I've got two of her Spanish albums and my neighbors think she is great but they are too young to remember the few popular here.   The NY Times article doesn't even mention Los Panchos which is a shame because I think it was some of her best stuff.  Sabor a Mi is one of my favorites.

Eydie Gorme, Voice of Sophisticated Pop, Dies at 84

Oddly, about three weeks ago there was a concert here in San Miguel of Edyie Gorme songs!

Glad to see she was appreciated

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
