The traffic got the best of our guest this morning unfortunately, so… It is just you me and the music this morning and a rummage around some of the things relevant to today, either in the news or things that happened on this day.
For example (Dame) Nellie Melba was born on this day in 1861 – She was an Australian opera soprano. She became one of the most famous singers of the late Victorian Era and the early 20th century due to the purity of her lyrical voice and the brilliance of her technique. Melba was the first Australian to achieve international recognition as a classical musician. Now more to the point a dessert of peaches and raspberry sauce with vanilla ice cream is called the Peach Melba. The dish was invented in 1892 or 1893 by the French chef Auguste Escoffier at the Savoy Hotel, London, to honour the Australian soprano Nellie Melba.
