Look what I found – again the Getty Family and Friends at St. George’s Chapel. This sounds like the folks Alcohol Justice went after – and they still ignore me! Could it be – me? Did I pull the Sword from the Stone? I have my sister Christine with me. She is the artist known as ‘The Rose of World’. The Getty family is kin to Ian Fleming. We are a team again. Add the murals her husband did at the Getty Villa, and the truth I am more than a Art Historian in Recovery, then we are looking at The Grail Family. We will outlive Putin. My offspring and related kin have been elevated. Their sideshow has come to a dead end. Time to be obedient to their fate. This Seer – is for real!

“A royal “whee”: The queen wasn’t home, but scads of other royalty (European and Californian in variety) donned the ermine when Prince Michael of Kent (patron of the Russian National Orchestra) and his wife, Princess Michael of Kent, hosted a concert by the orchestra in usually-not-open-to-the-public St. George’s Chapel (where many British sovereigns and royalty are buried) at Windsor Castle. Honoring the late Sir John Paul Getty Jr. (who died last year), the black-tie invite drew guests such as Sir Getty’s widow, Lady Victoria Getty; his brother Gordon Getty and wife Ann, with sons Peter and Billy and Billy’s wife, Vanessa; and a gaggle of Getty cousins and friends: Mark Getty, Tara Getty, Ariadne Getty Williams; Kathleen Sullivan Alioto and daughter Domenica, and Dodie Rosekrans. Just like the post concert Davies Symphony Hall crowd, guests headed out afterward for a bite to eat. Unlike Davies Hall, it was only a short stroll to the main castle, where tables were laid with gold place settings.
Gordon and his brother lived half a world apart for most of their lives, and sometimes felt like rivals growing up, but they’d grown close in later years. “Gordon was visibly moved,” said friend and lawyer Bill Prezant. “There was the emotional connection of his brother mixed with the music and the chapel’s excellent choir. He actually got a little misty.”
In addition to Getty’s “Joan and the Bells,” the orchestra also performed the world premiere of a choral piece composed by Russian National Orchestra Artistic Director Mikhail Pletnev and dedicated to Getty. Based on a poem by William Butler Yeats (suggested by a longtime friend, Judge Newsom) the work celebrates Gordon’s recent 70th. Getty is an RNO supporter but doesn’t contribute to events where his music is played. Which made it even better. “This had to be one of the orchestra’s best performances ever,” he said. “It was absolutely knock-down, knock-your-socks-off spectacular.”

My father forced us to sit at our dining room table and learn how to play Bridge. We were nine, eight, seven, and four. Vicki Presco was the Dummy Hand. Vic flew in a rage when we didn’t get what a dummy hand, is. I still don’t know how to play Bridge, but, I compared the Impeachment Hearing to a game of Bridge, and, an old Western where the fort is surrounded by Indians on the warpath. The big question is, will REINFORCEMENTS arrive in time to save the fort and everyone inside – including innocent women and children?
Words like “concern” and “corruption” are used by both sides to make their case. This fits. There is always this Bad Guy, who tries to corrupt the integrity of everyone, especially the Captain of the fort. He is a rich dude who has BRIBED the Indians to attack the settlers, and…
