Blah, blah, blah blah blah

I was very busy today. I seem to be being busy a lot more than I used to. It's good for me, or so I'm told.

The main item on the agenda was taking my vacuum cleaner to get it cleaned, tuned up and repaired as needed. Despite being 12 years old and never going for an official tuneup before, it was in rather good shape :-) Also I ran some of my out of town errands while I was out of town and then went grocery shopping on my way home.

I got four paperback books spiral bound at Kinkos. There are just some books that should be spiral bound - like music/song books. They need to stay open by themselves to really be useful. I also did my manual for iLife '08 - the Mac software bundle that has my photo, website, music making/recoding, movie making and such programs in it, and I did my CBT Workbook.

Workbooks should also always be spiral bound so they are easier to write in.

I'm hoping tomorrow I can work on some at home stuff since today was all out of town.

I'm going to be doing a MySpace site for our favorite Bluegrass band, the River Ramblers. That means I'll also have to be keeping it up to date and such stuff as that. I will also be doing their new website - part of why I needed that manual about iLife so I can better use iWeb :-)

I've learned "Liberty" on my fiddle. Well, that is I'm learning to play it one of the ways it is played. I'm quickly learning that with these old tunes - tunes that are both "old time" and "bluegrass" especially - there is rarely one set way to play them. What I've been told is that even if I'm not playing the melody exactly like the person next to me, it won't matter because we are staying within the same chord sequence. I'm not all that convinced. This sure is different than singing in a choir!!! :-) I also want to learn "Old Joe Clark" as it was played at a jam I was at recently and I was able to play along pretty quickly.

We are getting about 4 inches of snow tonight. I am getting tired of snow now, although it is still very pretty.

Hugs to all :-)

Cool that you're doing a website for the Ramblers. And "Liberty" - I think that used to be one of my favorites! That and "Over the Waterfall".

I am sick of snow too. *bleh* My crocuses I planted last fall will soon be coming up though.

All sounds grand on your musicness area. Have fun with becoming the ruler of a fan site. *heehee*

So glad to hear about the fiddle. I learned some new notes on my guitar.
