Thank you all for the birthday wishes. Unfortunately I forgot to take off work, so it became a normal day for me.
@argerichfan - I don't read the weekly standard, but if you subtract god from conservatism, you get me.
I did keep my birthday piano related and learned two "pop" songs for a gig this weekend. They are a bit easier than most classical pieces but the song "Locomotive Breath" did provide an exercise for my ear so I spent a couple of hours there. I managed to also practice some Liszt. (Beside a Spring)
