Hi Peter,
Can you scan it and create a pdf of this story.  I'm sure many of us would be interested and have no access to the original publication.
Keep the music playing.

Peter's Pearls / Re: No__88___Pedal Exercises
« Last post by Peter Anderson on June 17, 2018, 01:31:29 PM »
May I suggest that before playing any of these exercises on your Pedal Board, you actually play them on your Lower Keyboard.

There are two reasons for this.

1.      It will get you used to reading the bass clef
                          If it helps, pencil in the names of the notes, so that you get used to recognising them.

but more importantly,

2.      You will hear what the pieces are supposed to sound like.   
                         So when you play the exercises on your keyboard, you will listen to the notes
                         and not be tempted to look at your feet or the pedals.

Break the habit of wanting to look down at your pedals

Jokes / The Adoption Agency
« Last post by Hugh Wallington on June 08, 2018, 05:02:04 PM »
A couple who work at the circus go to an adoption agency. 

Social workers there raise doubts about their suitability to adopt.  The couple produce photos of their expensive, 50 foot Prevost motor-home, which is already equipped with a beautiful nursery.
 
The social workers then are doubtful about the education that the child would get.

"We've arranged for a full-time tutor to travel with us who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin and computer skills."

Then there are doubts about raising a child in a circus environment.

"Our nanny/housekeeper is an expert in pediatric welfare and diet."

The social workers are finally satisfied.

They ask, "What age and sex of child are you hoping to adopt?"

"It doesn't really matter, as long as it fits in the cannon."

Jokes / Simon and ....
« Last post by Hugh Wallington on June 08, 2018, 04:55:14 PM »
A young man walks onto the stage of Stars in their Eyes, on crutches, with a plaster cast from his feet to his hips.

Matthew Kelly Introduces him as Simon.
"It's very brave of you to come out here," says Matthew. "Please tell the audience what happened."

"Well," replies Simon, "about a year ago, I was driving with my uncle when we had a really bad accident. Unfortunately my uncle was killed outright but I survived. I was trapped in the car for six hours before I was eventually cut free. The doctors had me in surgery for 12 hours but they couldn't save my legs."

"That's terrible. But I see you have legs now. Are they artificial?" asks Matthew.
 
"No Matthew, while I was in hospital the doctors informed me that my uncle had in fact died. But they also said that his legs were fine and, with all the advances in medical science, they could graft the bottom half of his body onto mine. As you can see the operation was successful.  I have been having physiotherapy for six months and hope to be walking fully again by the end of the year."
 
A huge round of applause erupts from the audience.

Kelly responds with:
"That's an unbelievable story. So tonight, who are you going to be?"

"Tonight, Matthew, I am going to be Simon and Half-uncle."
