I suspect that’s what they do most of the time, but I’ll have to watch more videos to know for sure!

… than the real ones. Or at least these are PG-13 or so, maybe!

It’s a Carmina Burana sort of weekend, with Symphony Silicon Valley Do you have your tickets yet? I hear it’s selling very, very well.

Now I want a piece of lovely cake.

Thanks, Bob Hubbard, for bringing this to my attention!

From the YouTube page:

This is a small tune I composed while on an airplane, hence the title. It is written for 2 oboes and was written so that one may play it by themselves. A very genuine attempt at screwing around.

I’m assuming the name on the YouTube page, Rajan Panchal, is the oboist’s name.

Bravo! :-)

The Breaking Winds are at it again!

I’ll just let this one speak for itself.

This is not as easy as you might think! Jose Antonio Masmano, you crack me up! (Just don’t crack my reed!)

… for this. Too darn funny. ;-)

Sooooo … I’m at that “certain age”. Every woman gets there eventually. I got there later than most. But here I am. And it’s really not so hot. And yet it is very hot.

Go figure.

Yes, indeed, it’s been hot flash time for a few months now.

So far I’m dealing fine, but let me tell you, when you are about to play a solo and a hot flash hits it’s just not that much fun. Of course what can one do but deal, but still, I wish I could hold up a sign saying, “This is a little bit more difficult at the moment because I am currently burning up from the inside out.” Or at least a sign that says “Yes, I’m really hot.” But no, no signs, and still I deal. I have no choice.

That is all.

You’re welcome.


For my bassoon playing pals who love Rite. Or not.
