My Oh My! It's really true!
I had to try these "soap pads" because I hate how those others rust and boy do that STANK! But these really don't rust. And no steel wool splinters. It's a miracle!
So here's the low-down:Rust Factor
- Don't know. Got them at the discount store.Smell
- Could use a little more soap. Soap is good.Durability
- Well, it says "Delicate" soap pads. I wouldn't plan on using them on the lasagna pan.
Look for them in the cleaning isle at a supermarket near you!

Tai Chi & Pachelbel's Canon - Perfect together
At least for me. I admit that I am not much of a classical music listener. But I do have Pachelbel's
Canon and put it on last night to experiment with some Tai Chi
. I'm not a clutz but I'm no ballerina either. I have been practicing my solo forms (I am just a beginner) with a DVD which is really very good but have recently noticed I am using the rewind, forward, pause buttons too much. Not good. Bad Chi!
This way I can just play the tape and practice the forms over and over. Stop and go as I need to. It seems to be a natural progression. Time will tell.
UPDATE: Also working very well with Jorma's "Water Song"!

Almost a month to spare!
Today, I finally submitted my taxes after procrastinating for some time. I know there are plenty of you out there who still haven't done yours and if you owe money, I can't say that I blame you. But, like Mom always says, there are only two things in this life you can count on.
Death and Taxes
I was so happy I finished them that I went and bought myself a new pair of sneakers! I had told myself all week that I would reward myself when I finally accomplished the job and you know, it really wasn't that difficult. I've been doing my own taxes for years and this year was by far the easiest of all.
Granted I don't actually have the checks yet!

I love Jon Anderson and I love YES
YES was the first live concert I saw. I've seen them dozens of times since. I love Jon Anderson. Was it the times, my head? I don't know but I have always been able to relate to they lyrics throughout the years. Close to the Edge, a great album no doubt. But one of many. YES was always ahead of their time. YES
always did their own thing. I just heard "And you and I
" on the radio. It's still as amazingly beautiful as I remember it to be the first time I heard it back in the early 70's. Maybe I'm old. Maybe it's nostalgic but I think it's just good music.

Some interesting statistics
There is a new study out about women and how they feel about their asses! I thought the results were pretty interesting:
a.. 85% of women think their ass is too fat;
b.. 10% of women think their ass is too skinny;
c.. The other 5% say they don't care, they love him, he's a good man, and they would have married him anyway.
