Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Ben Hur.

Remember that movie with Charlton Heston? It is one of Ken's favourites, and I enjoy watching the DVD again occasionally. There is going to be a live show based on the movie 'Ben Hur', at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney, on October 22 and 23. I just booked tickets for us online. We knew about it a while ago, but baulked at the price of the tickets, and regretfully decided it would be too expensive. But yesterday I received an email from the ShowBiz site, offering a 24 hour special of tickets for $100 - half price! Too good to knock back. Now I've got to look for some cheap airfares and a cheap motel, which I think I have found on Wotif.com. A hotel very close to the stadium, very basic facilities, for $69 a night. As long as we have a clean place to sleep, I don't care how basic it is! Closer to the time, we will probably rent a car, so we can drive ourselves from the airport to the hotel, and anywhere else we want to go.

Gina that show sounds wonderful, you were lucky to get tickets and I'm sure you will have a great weekend. I'll be watching for a post all about the show on your return.
