Ask Your Board

Hey Everyone!

Our anniversary month is drawing to a close.  It’s been so great reading everyone’s memories and comments.  We’ve loved reading about the convention in Minnesota, reviewing our last year and dusting off our original background.  I know my board sisters and I enjoyed reliving how we got the blog started and how much our lives have changed since then.  We hope you have too. 

Before we end the chapter on our first year, we have one more activity we hope you’ll like:





For the next three days, we invite you to send us a question you would like to ask about us.  It can be a question for the board as a whole, directed toward one member specifically or about some aspect of the website/featured piece/etc.  At the end of the three days, we will go through them, pick a few, and then we will post them with the answers later this month.  


Sound fun?  We hope so!  E-mail us your question using the “Contact Us” Form until August 26th, and then watch for the post! 


EDIT: Deadline to submit questions has been extended to August 28th.   Get your questions in!   😀

  1. And yet ANOTHER GREAT IDEA coming from our beloved board!! My question will be in the mail!! 🙂

    1. Marie, I refuse to believe that a person such as yourself lived a sad morose life devoid of any interesting interests that grabbed your attention. Of course I am sure this passion/interest was not nearly to the heights of your passion for IL VOLO ( and a certain Mr.Dimples) but all the same there had to be some, for crying out loud in your grog! I’m sure the same can be applied to all of your Board Sistahs.

    1. Marie, I would have said my pre-Il Volo passion was Elvis. But even he did not evoke the feelings that I have for our guys. A passion-less life? Hardly. But no comparison to a life filled with Il Volo!

  2. Hey! Just wanted to say H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y to a few of you!

    8/25 – KELLY (KYALPN) 🙂

    8/28 – Anne Quinto

    8/29 – Connie (Our Pirate)

    8/14 – Leelee (you can’t hurt me. I live too far away.)

    I know that Joanie (fl2) and Terese’s are soon.

    Penina is currently working on a Birthday Calendar for us. That’ll teach her to have good ideas. She’ll be asking for dates soon.

    BTW, Birthday Ladies, I know how all of your parents celebrated Thanksgiving the year before you were born!

  3. Why thank you for the birthday wishes. Happy Birthday to the rest of my August companions. Leave it to you to think about my parents Thanksgiving celebration. After all these years, I never even thought about it. LOL

    Oh, and Marie, you may live too far right and I can’t hurt you now, but soon…

  4. Am I the only one publicly asking a question so far? Or was I supposed to take this to email?
    While I am here , I’ll ask another question of the Board: Which IL VOLO ONE of all their songs is the one song you go to to banish your blues, energize and get you going ?

  5. My question is in the mail. Now I want to wish all our Fight Crew friends with August birthdays a Happy, Happy Birthday!

    I just saw Piero and Gianuca do the Ice Bucket Challenge. Brrrr! And I must say I really like Gianluca’s do be do be do shirt!

  6. I also would like to take this opportunity to wish Happy Birthday to all of the August Flight Crew members. I have a few questions: How do I upload a video I created from my pictures I took with my camera at the Taormina concert. It’s not the best video, but I would love to share it with all of the Flight Crew family. My next question is what is the email address for the Flight Crew?

    1. I would be remiss if I did not thank you for the kind birthday wishes! August is the bestest month!
      I have another question: Besides all things IL Volo, what else do you like to do with your time?

      1. I myself have been taking care of my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter for about 8 yrs and have raised my grandson (now 18). I recently retired at a young enough age to enjoy life, took my grandson to Italy in July and I will be moving to Phoenix in about a month. It’s time for me to live life to the fullest and if that means going to lots of IL VOLO concerts next year so be it.

    2. Hi Karen: I wish I could help you with the uploading but I am clueless! My sons help me out with intricate computer stuff! Would love to see you pictures when you get them uploaded.

  7. Very late to this party….Happy Belated Birthday to all of my August peeps! Thank you for the birthday wish!
    Karen, where is video right now? Is it on your computer? If so, you can upload it to YouTube after opening a YouTube account (it will walk you through it). Then you could share the link in a comment. Or you could send it to us using the “Contact Us” form and we could put it up for you.
