The closing of Alexander Road between Canal Pointe Boulevard and Canal Road during road reconstruction has caused problems for area businesses on the Princeton side of the project as well as for Obal Garden Market, which is on the West Windsor side.
Men speak one way; women speak another. Males of the species miss verbal cues; females pick up on them. These key differences in behavior were among several cited by speaker Terry Adams in Mars & Venus: Bridging the Communication Gap, a talk held at the opening event of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerces Women in Business Alliance on May 25. With this new program, the Chamber aims to foster connections and collaborations between business women and community leaders, and provide advocacy for womens issues.

Kate is a creature …. In other words, she does things witches, elves, alien beings, and ventriloquists can only envy: she goes from singing the sound of the earth to singing the sound of the sky … and before you can catch your breath she’ll be babbling like a brook, laughing along with a blackbird, and dancing barefoot on the moon.

In another life, she’d have been Isadora Duncan or Sarah Bernhardt.
The quote above is from my first record review for Town Topics (December 7, 2005), in which I attempted to describe what Kate Bush is doing on the brilliant “Sea of Honey” side of her double CD Aerial. Five and a half years later here she is with a not strictly speaking “new” album called Director’s Cut, which features revised versions of songs from the albums The Sensual World (1989) and The Red Shoes (1993).
The word “consort” conjures up a number of images from music history, but in many people’s minds, consorts tend to be on the small size. The north Jersey-based Tim Keyes Consort defied this definition this past weekend by bringing full forces to Richardson Auditorium for a musical New England Tapestry.
