Chillin' wit a cellist

Sideways sprinkles didn't deter birthday revelers for cellist Kate Dillingham's ( birthday party on the former boat of former president William H. Taft at the 79th Street Boat Basin and the Hudson River on Thursday, June 29th. Not only did I get to catch up with the lovely Kate and her mother, meet her sister and her TV camera-man boyfriend, but I got to meet TV producer Peter Powell and famous actress Rita Gam. Rita and Peter enthusiastically told me about their "World Of Beauty" TV series on PBS and how they are seeking partners to continue the show in other countries. It was such a compelling idea, we met weeks later at a private club for lunch to discuss collaborating.
