Beginner Saxophone Sheet Music

Digging around the basement this weekend I stumbled onto a box that I had not noticed before, it was full of sheet music for various musical instruments that my mother had tucked away for who knows how long. She had even kept some of the beginner saxophone music that my kid brother used to have to practice along to. Boy oh boy, didn’t Kevin hate practicing that sax and the whole family (as well as many of the neighbors) suffered right along with him. Day after day, week after week, month after month…….

Kevin has always been known for practicing the “misery loves company” theory. I can’t wait to see his face when I pull out this sheet music and stick it in his face at the next family gathering. Not sure if that is going to be on Memorial Day or the 4th of July. But I’ll tuck it away until the time is right.

60 minutes

The other night I was watching the television show 60 minutes, which is one of my favorite news magazine show.  I was especially interested in the story about how a mixture of peanut butter, powdered milk, sugar and vitamins was created and named Plumpynut was created and is being used with great success to feed malnourished children in third world countries.

This was definitely a “feel good” story about how progress is being made to help the needy.  I’m glad I stayed up to watch it.  I hope that the use of Plumpynut spreads to other third world countries to help feed their starving children too.

The Local Diner Sounds Mighty Fine

I have decided that on Sunday evening I will go into town and have dinner at the local diner for a nice change. I have grown weary of cooking for myself each night. Most nights I only have the strength for a quick sandwich and a glass of milk. I’m way over due.

It’s nice to know that they participate with the Farm to Table practice that is getting larger and larger across the whole nation. Being a local farmer, it’s to my best interest to spend my money there.

Safety, Common Sense is Involved

I have several friends that ride their Harleys and they all come from different kinds of backgrounds and a few have careers that you wouldn’t imagine them to have, while sporting the tattoos and all that black leather that is essential for any rider. Several times a year, I will hear the sound of Harleys coming down our road and then continue on coming up all the way into the driveway. I end up having quite a good old time with some very interesting folks who have come by for a entertaining visit.

We have heard so many stories of fallen brothers that have been killed or severally injured while riding their bikes, and all of my “Biker” friends seem very adamant about safety issues that are mostly just common sense if you ask me. There are many places no that anyone can go to and purchase all types of motorcycle safety clothing and helmets at great discount offerings along with all types of accessories that play an important part of motorcycle riding.

An Hour of Sandra Bullock

I watched a special on VH1 last night about one of my favorite actresses, Sandra Bullock. I’d seen it before, but only bits and pieces of it, this time I got to see the whole thing. A full  hour of all kinds of stories, pictures and interesting information about this native Virginian from north Arlington.

There is something about Ms Bullock that really floats my boat. I haven’t seen her do a bad job in any of the roles that she has played over the last twenty-five years or so and I hope that she continues to entertain us me for a long time to come.
