We start this week with a feeling of well being because not only have the Bills carried off a massive victory, but we were visited last week by two classic heads of '80s hair.
One was Sarah Brightman, whom Buzz beheld at UB's Center For the Arts.
The other, Bernadette Peters, whom Buzz had the honor of seeing at Kleinhans Music Hall. Here is the exquisite and exclusive Buffalo News photo, taken by Harry Scull:
What marvelous manes! Having them both here within days of each other is rare, like a solar eclipse.
Clearly Buffalo's planets are lined up right!

The Dreamchaser Water Bottle at last night's Sarah Brightman concert at UB's Center for the Arts was $25!
And people were buying it. Plus the $70 sweatshirt!
That concert lived up to its name.
Buzz must be dreaming!

Jon Rosen, the Snyder gentleman who owns Jon Rosen Systems, went over to a neighbor's house to help them get ready for a move. In a crawl space in the basement they found this written on the wall:
This being the Internet age, the story does not end there. Jon put the picture up on Facebook. And the house's former owner, now living in Texas, immediately got in touch!
"I can't believe you found my note!!!" Holly Kirkpatrick Whiting wrote from Dallas. "I wrote it when we moved my mother to Asbury Pointe around seven years ago. I couldn't bear to walk out and not leave some note about who had built the house. Thanks so much for sharing!"
It turns out that her sister was Facebook friends with Jon's sister.
The house's adventures continue. Buzz hears that it has just been sold to Liesl Folks, the new dean of the UB School of Engineering.
Engineers have an eye for interesting buildings!
