I have a nice and expensive leather chair and ottoman. The leather was looking dry and none of the leather conditioners I tried helped at all. It's brown, not black. I used plain coconut oil on it and it made a huge difference. It soaked it up i

There's no native way to print a kindle ebook. So again, you would have to convert it first (again, check out Calibre for this, it's free, BTW). And if you are converting anyway: Try to convert to EPUB, which is the other big ebook format (used by ev

If you mean the Yamaha hybrids N1, N2, N3 (with grand action) and NU1 (with upright action). They are essentially digital pianos but with "real" acoustic actions (either grand or upright) instead of one of the various custom designed action

I like all three of these rags very much, Larry, with a particular fondness for Rugrat and Recycle. Much of your work has very strong, inventive and impressive bass lines and harmonic underpinning, and I love the very creative ending sections you giv

I enjoyed listening to your short fugue. It's very nice. However, I find the whole concept of a fugue very daunting and have never tried it myself. It seems as though a simplest fugue would be to settle on a particular chord structure and then compos
