Here’s my latest and greatest piece of music. It’s a slow blues with light jazz elements. This is probably the best sound overall I’ve ever been able to muster on a recording. Click through to give it a listen.
Been working on this complete version since I last posted the harpsichord part naked in my previous post. Here it is in it’s full version, just click the following link: Continue reading
Here it is, kids, my latest and greatest keyboard masterpiece. Three minutes in length, solo harpsichord. I’ll likely be adding violin and cello which was my plan all along. First I wanted to make a foundation that I could play live and by myself. Click in to listen if you like.
I’m Flat Stanley and I went to Hastings, Michigan, to visit my Uncle Jim.
When I first got there, the Fairies of the house came to make sure I didn’t bring any Woodland Magic into the house that didn’t belong.
After that, the house Dragons checked me for any evil Fire Magic. No fires allowed in the house.
This post is for my Apple Trove followers, Apple users in general, and maybe Apple haters. The rest can follow along out of morbid curiosity or maybe to see how I trouble shot a problem I had with my computer after updating it’s operating system to the latest and greatest upgrade on the first day of release.

For the past six weeks I have been taking a Coursera class called, “Writing Music Like Mozart”. I’ll not bore non-music theorists with the details of what was covered, but I do want to address certain people in this world. Continue reading
A couple weeks ago my wife, Cathy, was looking through the local Facebook community page and she saw a post from a wife asking for a ride to work for her husband. Their car was vandalized and they could not afford for him to lose his job. Cathy showed me the post. Continue reading
Here’s a quick tip for my Apple Trove followers.
I heard you can get rid of in-app ads by turning on Airplane mode on your iPhone. All you have to do is swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone to access the Control Center, tap on the airplane icon, and then streamed ads can no longer reach your iPhone! I’ve tried this with several apps and it works like a charm. The apps work and there are no ads popping up.
There are downsides to this, like not being able to receive phone calls, texts, and other online services. But why should the world be allowed to disturb your game, right? Just don’t forget to switch Airplane Mode back off when you’re done!
What about morals? OK, if you really use an app a lot and there is a cheap option to get rid of the ads then give them a buck.
Meanwhile, if you are willing to disconnect yourself from planet Earth, there is a way to get rid of those pesky ads.
You’ve come a long way, baby! Continue reading
Over the holidays we stayed a week at a relative’s house where my wife’s daughter was recovering from pneumonia and her husband was just starting to regularly sneeze. A few days after returning home I started sneezing regularly, coughing persistently, and blowing orange snot out of my nose on waking for two days followed by green globs of snot this morning. Afraid of developing bronchitis, I went to the doctor today. Continue reading
