HI!!! Thanks for the message, I was starting to feel a little lonely out here, LOL...
Where in N Phoenix are you? We used to live in Anthem, then Deer Valley before we moved back up to Prescott. Thank goodness we're getting warmer weather now, I thought spring would NEVER come this year, with all the snow and hail we've had up here...
My Christmas was great, thanks for asking! Veggin' is a good thing- I need to do more of it myself. Glad to see you back on the org. I've been on this site, for what seems like always. Many faithful orgers have fallen away. It's good to see some new ones, such as yourself come aboard. I hope you stick around. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Hey that piece, Lohengrin: Prelude Act III is some good stuff. I could see myself in Cup enjoying a good drive in the country on a sunny day listening to something like that!
I'm also a pianist. I started later in the game than you- 1984. I wish I had more time to hone my craft, but I do okay in a pinch:lol:. I sing as well as well as a songwriter. I'll try and get some of my stuff up online one of these days
Too awesome! Pops (not Arthur Fiedler:lolalways encouraged us to live in integrity, yet be well versed in life. I think my broad music likes reflects that. It's cool to know another who appreciates classical music as well as a good movie/tv score. Big, big fan of shostakovich symphony 5! Played it in High School band- 1st chair trombone. if you've never seen it performed by Bernstein, you're missing something special. The passion and energy he exudes is amazing!
Hey no problem on the name thing, especially with online forums- I understand. I guess i've been around here long enough that I open up to good people. I remember the org being friendly to me when I first joined... I'm just paying it forward. Blame my hospitality on my parents I guess:lol: I love people, what can I say? I just wish that everyone could be more hospitable, kind and honest. Still I have to do my part.
Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart. -Anne Frank.
:lol: Oh and on the scarab thing.... I originally wanted my screen name to be Y2k Bug, but it was taken. Looking back, i'm glad it was- I like scarabY2k better
Oh and your screen name is cool:bigthumb: I'm no french whiz, but it's cool
Yeah, That Al (Scarab) is like that. You gotta love him. He is one of the things about this board, that makes it a GREAT place. If you ever get the honor of meeting him, you will adore him. Oh, and since I haven't said it before, Welcome to the Org! We are glad you are here, EVEN if you don't have a New Beetle yet. I said "yet", because we ALL know that if you are here, it's only a matter of time.
No problem, Glad to post on your thread. Don't get discouraged- keep posting and starting threads. You're starting to gain a lot of frequent flyer org miles and becoming a seasoned org veteran. So keep posting and don't be a stranger:wave2:
