The World Needs More Music (And Musicians, Too!)
It is said that the only language that the whole world understands is music. Indeed, it is true. How many times have you swayed to the beat of a song that had lyrics that you did not even understand? How many times have you actually appreciated a piece of music that even had no lyrics at all?
This simply means that we all do understand music and it is a language that we all can appreciate. It does not matter if it has lyrics or not. What is important is we appreciate the melody that is being played to us. Music has a really good way of keeping people together and of sending messages.
I have played music. I still play music but only when I have the spare time. Truth is, I have been so busy trying to make ends meet that music has become something that I go back to only if I need it. I really am not happy about that but I know that living in the Philippines, a third world country, I simply cannot focus on music and make money from that.
A friend once told me that he wishes he was born or was living in a first world country like the United States. He said that if he lived there, he knows that he can focus on the arts and his music and still be able to make ends meet.
Honestly, I wish that all people can make music and can share their music to everyone. I wish that artists and musicians can actually do what they really love to do and do what they are good at without having to think about how they are going to get their next meal.
That is why I am quite happy that I learned that there are places that offer private piano lessons Peoria AZ that are quite good. This means that those who are really interested in making music can learn how they can do so by having private lessons. Truth is, some people are just not confident enough about their passion and their talents and skills. If they do try to get lessons from school or from places that have a classroom setting, they would not give it their all because they feel like they are being scrutinized by everyone.
However, with private piano lessons like this, it would definitely be good. It would allow them to be more relaxed and more confident to learn what they need to learn and then hone their craft even better. The more they are able to learn, the world would definitely be happier with more and more people knowing how to play and how to share music.
Of course, The Noteroom in Peoria, AZ also is not just about providing private piano lessons. The place also is offering lessons and music instruction to kids and children who are interested in learning. So if you are in the area and you would like your kid to know how to play the drums or the guitar, The Noteroom is definitely the place to go to. Or maybe if your child wants to be a singer, you can go there too for lessons. Definitely a place for those with music in their veins.
With too many schools having to deal with budget cuts, the arts and the music programs are the first to go. That is why, I am very thankful and happy to learn that places like The Noteroom are able to provide an alternative for those who would like to learn.
After all, as I said earlier, the world needs more music and more musicians.

Getting Affairs In Order With An Estate Planning Lawyer Helps
Have you gotten your affairs in order already? Or are you still living life as if there will be no end? They say that it is essential that you make sure that you live your life to the fullest. Yes, that is true. However, it is also important that you make sure that all your affairs are in order so that there would be no trouble for your family and loved ones once you do reach the end of the line.
Let me tell you a story.
My friend lives in Phoenix, AZ. He has been there for almost two decades now. He told me how he and his family had to go through a lot of trouble when their father passed away a couple of years back. Everybody wanted to get something from what the father left behind and it did not quite end well. There was a lot of anger. And there were a lot of crying. In the end, some did not get anything while others took a lot. The family did not seem like a family any longer.
This may seem to be too much but it does happen especially when it comes to assets and estates. See, people can be greedy and they always believe that they deserve something. That is why even families can be broken apart by greed.
My friend did not want this to happen to his own family when the time comes. That is why he made sure that he puts all his affairs in order. He does estate planning and makes sure that there is a will. I believe he got help from a Phoenix estate planning lawyer who has been guiding him through everything. He says everything is far better now and he has peace of mind because he knows that even in the event of his demise, he knows that there is something that is legal and in black and white that would state how he would want all of his assets and his real estate divided and what would happen to these.
This lawyer is Sharon Ravenscroft and my friend told me that he is satisfied with the services that he has been getting. As an estate planning attorney, Ravenscroft is quite an expert. She has helped him put his affairs in order and he is happy with how things are going. He knows that his family will not be torn apart by the time he meets his end (though he hopes it would not be anytime soon!).
He says he is satisfied and happy that he found Ravenscroft. Sure, there may be plenty of estate planning lawyers in Phoenix but he can never be too sure about these other individuals who may claim that they would really want to help. He has learned about scammers and all that and he definitely does not want to trust those. Who would want to?
I am happy for my friend and that he has shared his story with me. I, myself, am trying to get everything in order. I believe that it is always better to be prepared than to be sorry about things later on. I also would want my family to have everything that I have and I will make sure that I do that though I still have to find a Ravenscroft here where I currently am.
But thanks to my friend in Phoenix, he has told me about what has happened to him and now I am inspired and motivated to do the same. I just wish I were in Phoenix and I would definitely be getting the services of Ravenscroft for myself.

As a kid, I hated dogs. They were unruly. They would be noisy and bark at you. Plus, I had the responsibility of feeding them and taking them out for a walk or to poop as a kid. So I totally hated them.
I guess that hate was all because it was all my responsibility to do most of the tough work during weekends. I just wanted to be inside the house and play but I had to go out and do the work.
Now that I’m all grown up, my thoughts about dogs have changed. I now love dogs. And maybe, there is that part in me that makes me love dogs because I do not have the responsibility to look over them. I go home and I play with them if I want to. I talk to them if I want to. But I do not have the responsibility to take care of them, make sure they are fed, clean up after them, and all the other stuff that you do to dogs.
Right now, we have five dogs in the house. One belongs to my son. The other four belong to my sisters. The new rule in the house is whoever owns the dog must be the one responsible for them. And so that means I am off the hook. I can play with them if I like but I do not have to be the one responsible for them. Yay!
We have a Golden Retriever. This one is pretty big and furry unlike the four other small ones we have at home. The thing I discovered about our retriever is that she does not bark that much as compared to the small ones that we have around. She would just sit and stare at strangers and would only bark if they come too close to our home. Now, that part, she does not like and so she would stand up and start barking like crazy.
This Golden Retriever is named Fiona. She is definitely big and very playful. She hates it when I start playing with the other dogs. All she wants is that she gets all the attention. Selfish, eh?
If there were no supplies here for this big dog, I’d probably go ahead and look for stuff online. I do not buy them much stuff but when I do find something that I think would interest them, I go ahead and do the purchase. I even once tried dog supplies Arizona has to offer just to get them that cute little toy that squeaks.
But the thing is, the smaller dogs loved the squeaky toy. The Golden Retriever chose to ignore it. Instead, her attention was focused on the lovely Indian mangoes hanging from our two trees outside our gate. She hates it when someone picks those mangoes. She claims all mangoes as hers. That is her toy and also her food.
Still, I have no plans on getting a dog of my own. I still can play with them. Plus, I do not think I am ready for all the responsibility. LOL. But yes, I love dogs and I love playing with them. That’s that.

This is not your usual site where you download porn
. Let's say that it's a classier way of doing so. And more organized too! So finding what you need is a lot easier. And faster.

My cousin is so fond of his motorcycle that he is doing everything he can to make it look real nice. His latest whim? Harley accessories
He handed me a list of accessories he wanted. I found all of them right in that store and I really had a grand time going through the shop. Honestly! You'd see all these nice accessories and a lot of other options. Shopping has never been easier and my cousin is so happy with the results.
Honestly, what is going to bring me back would be their grand collection that come with really nice promotional prices. Oh yes. It's the prices that's going to bring me back too. I'm eyeing this leather jacket there and I know someone's gonna be so happy when I give this to him as gift. :)
