Missed piano class last week, as there was something going on and no parking available, and the last thing I wanted to do was to park back in my lot and walk across campus to class, and back again.

But I finally got myrialux to set up his keyboard and spent an hour last night practicing. I have no idea how far they got in the book last class, but I went to page 30 or so, in the midst of the section where they start putting the notes on a staff instead of just having them hang out, staffless, with finger numbers attached.

And then I got bored with the boring tunes in the class textbook and poked through the book that came with the Yamaha keyboard for easy things and taught myself the first lines from "When The Saints Go Marching In" and the left-hand part of the beginning of the Ode to Joy. Only one hand, because I don't have a music stand at home yet and the Yamaha book is printed to small for me to leave it on my desk and squint at it, so I have to hold it in one hand as I play. :)

Hopefully I won't be too far behind tonight.


(I need an icon with a piano in it!)

02:14 pm - The FTC and review blogs...

If any of you USAians receive books or other products from the publisher/manufacturer and review them on your blog, you might want to read this interview with Richard Cleland from the FTC about revised Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials. There is gobs of clueless happening there.
