   If you can guess the 20 sopranos singing my favorite
   opera aria (No cheating!!), you will be permitted to
    run madly through my apartment with a giant shopping
    cart and grab whatever you wish in one minute!

        I rarely get to play anything anyway so I will
       not mind!          

  (78 minutes)

SO!  HOW DID YOU?  I HOPE YOU WILL ADD
YOUR COMMENTS AND TELL US HOW MANY
YOU GUESSED AND/OR WHICH ONES YOU LIKED MOST. I ASSUME MY COLLECTION
IS SAFE AT THE MOMENT BECAUSE NO ONE
HAS WRITTEN ME THAT YOU WILL BE
VISITING ME. (CHEATERS NOT WELCOME)

BY THE WAY...DO YOU WISH A VOLUME TWO??????
