Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

{Il Divo - Amazing Grace + Personal}

One of my favorite groups is Il Divo; 'divine male performer' in Italian. This operatic quartet of four male can really sing! The Spanish baritone Carlos Marín (my favorite!), Swiss tenor Urs Bühler, American tenor David Miller and French pop singer Sébastien Izambard. So which one is YOUR favorite of these four? Let me know...






For me this day is certainly Amazing Grace as it is exactly one year since Pieter had his successful open heart surgery...

  4. Oh yes!! They are most wonderful - I have a cd my mother gifted to me one year... and I love listening to it on a Sunday afternoon with our tea. I must get it out - I haven't listen to it in a while.

    Pieter, I'm so happy that all went well and you have made wonderful strides in recovery. Many blessings to you and our dear Mariette.

    Happy Labour Day my friends..XO C.

    Happy

  7. Oh I love them! I read about each one of them when I first found out about these handsome men. Carlos is my favorite... charming, and with that beautiful voice that makes my heart beat faster! :-))

    What a sweet way to celebrate Pieter's recovery. He is a good-hearted man!

  9. This post reminds of the first time I visited my late inlaws. My mother in law had a wall in their living room dedicated to Placido Domingo - she was a real dedicated fan and thought he was a God :-) We all had a sweet laugh together as it was evident my father in law had stark competition. Anyhow, Il Divo do have divine voices and Amazing Grace is one of my all time favorite songs (and so very pleased to hear of your special attribution of this song).
    Lot's of love
    from Joan
