La Cieca (pictured) begs your pardon for her unexplained absence from the site for the past several days. A little over-enthusiastic pre-Thanksgiving revelry seems to have brought on the mother of all autumn colds, so severe that finally, yesterday, your doyenne checked in with a a handy walk-in medical clinic where she was assured she was thankfully free of influenza. The long and the short of it is, I’m feeling much better now and looking forward to catching up with the news and gossip I hope you’ve been missing. Look for a fresh posting Sunday a.m.
La Cieca is proud to share with her cher public (pictured) the transition of parterre.com to a new commenting system powered by Disqus.com, which will be in place and running within the next day or so. Read on after the jump! Read more »
La Cieca and the entire gang down at parterre.com salute our advertisers for the month of April.
A readers’ discussion of Gaetano Donizetti garnered the most pageviews of any parterre posting in November.
“We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives.”
Take a moment, cher public, to thank our splendid parterre.com advertisers for the month of November.
A milestone of sorts is reached today at parterre.com: La Cieca and her team of experts have posted 7,000 articles on this WordPress-powered site since May 2005.
