I am officially a GLEEk!

Chris and I have a real connection through music, the other night while taking a walk we started a duet of a song we had seen on Glee and went back to the house sat down at the keyboard and tried to figure out the melody, then I downloaded the sheet music on the computer. And played the real song on iTunes, no waiting for the song to come on the radio.

I thought back to the "old days" when I used to have to save up and then walk or get a ride to buy sheet music at the music store, if these kids today only knew how much the world is opened up to them!

Back to Glee, it has a racy undertone that is not appropriate for an 11 year old so I dvr it and we watch the musical parts, which are amazing!

I went to a high school with an AMAZING show choir and music director Ms. Renaletta, who is still wowwing audiences in NY, I went to a show a couple years ago and was blown away by the level of production, costumes and musical talent, they even built a performing arts center at the school and sell tickets to their performances!

Left My Heart . . .

Just got back from a whirlwind 4 days in San Francisco area. Here are some highlights:

Celebrated my parents 45th wedding anniversary with them.

Met the new baby Julianne and celebrated Kira's 8th birthday.

Kira gave me a tour of Pier 39, she knows all the hot spots like Chocolate Heaven!

My brother Jon hooked us up with 6th row tickets to a SF Giants game!

Headed down to Cannery Row, beautiful historic area on Monterey Penninsula:

Then took an unbelieveable ride down the 17 mile drive, the Pacific Coastline at its finest:

Packed a lot into 4 days, I miss them all already!
