Remember those pre-child days when you would go out to a fancy restaurant or spend the weekend at a romantic get-away to celebrate Valentine’s Day? That may not be an option this year, but you can still enjoy a romantic dinner with your spouse. Here are a few ideas on how you can easily create a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner at home.
If you are at the bar, standing, then it is considered more “public”. The further away you get from the bar, the more “private” it becomes, particularly if you are seated. A dance floor is the obvious exception.
It was unexpected to watch one of the most influential Rock bands of all times making an appearance at the American Idol Finale last May. Shaking that memory off, this band definitely knows how to leave a trademark in history, from a KISS Lunch Box to declaring August 24 as KISS Rock ‘n Roll day in the state of South Dakota (not to mention the Kiss condoms and tooth brush) they have managed to survive pretty well since 1973. They were the first music artists to make LIVE version albums and since then, they have been doing what they do best, being on stage. Gene Simmons is the demon, famous for spitting blood but also for being a good dad on his TV show “Family Jewels”. Along with him we will see Paul Stanley (Star Child), Tommy Thayer (Space Man) and Eric Singer (Cat Man).

But learning to read music for kids is another task that I will discuss in a separate article. The one thing I wanted to remind parents is that reading music on a piano board cause substantial strains on kids’ eyes. My elder kid is near-sighted pretty much due to reading music with dim lighting. And I suggest getting a good piano lamp before having your kid spending too much time reading music from a piano bench.
Why is this third point important? Because chord theory is easier to learn, easier to play and easier to adjust to your level of proficiency than rote memorization, and because it is the foundation of playing chords in the left hand and harmonizing with chord tones in the right hand in beautiful ways that rote chord playing will never achieve.
Some people can’t feel motivated if they don’t feel pain or a sense of desperation to do something. These would be times of need, when there is no other option but to work. This type of “urgency” gives a person a burst of energy to get things done. You can create pain by going back and remembering the painful consequences you had to deal with when you needed to get something done or if you don’t get something done such as getting yelled at by someone you’re afraid of or the feeling of living out in the streets and having no home.
Final thoughts: Anyone who suggests Rush is unhip is setting themselves up for droves of hate mail. So be it. Rush is certainly one of those groups, that if you give them enough of an opening, can sliver their way into your eagerly waiting psyche.
