So much to do, so little time

Or how I blew the morning on my day off…

Suzy and I downed the PDF converter for Microsoft products. We send marked up copies of music all the time and so this was long overdue. Thanks Gary for this:

But there is a Microsoft add-in for Office 2007 which saves files to PDFs.  See http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=F1FC413C-6D89-4F15-991B-63B07BA5F2E5&displaylang=en or http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=4D951911-3E7E-4AE6-B059-A2E79ED87041&displaylang=en

I set up my sister’s Classbook.com site with pictures. She has been using the site for years without updating her profile. All the batteries are in the chargers for the WCB concert tomorrow. I’ve lessons with a new instructor, Jay Easton, this afternoon. And I haven’t practices my solos for tomorrow’s concert yet. Whew! I think I’ll take Suzy out for lunch.

    Hello friend,I see lots of changes including a name change!!!! Laughing with you. I hope the Thanksgiving holidays were good ones. I guess we can both begin to think of a little snow in the forecast. Tomorrow I’m hoping the outdoor tree gets up. What I can say with certainty is that the holiday music is playing. I’m sure you are doing some of that yourself. Be well. Bitterweet
