    About 5 years ago, I had this old keyboard that I never touched and my oldest daughter started playing on. I was happy to see her get an interest into something so I bought her an old Yamaha off of eBay. She dabbled, but then about a year ago she just started coming up with all kinds of music. She hadn't had piano lessons so she didn't know how to read or write music. Last Christmas my wife and I bought her a brand new piano. Ouch! the cost. Anyway, we signed her up for piano lessons which she hated every minute of, but she loves to play. She quickly quit lessones so she still can't read or write music, but still plays hours every day. I recorded some of her stuff last week and threw it all into one video. I uploaded it to YouTube.com. Hope you like..

    Had a co-worker that had a kid working on getting his Eagle scout title and to do so he needed to manage some charity work. So 20 or so of us chipped in and scrapped and repainted an old Marine house.

    Ok, if you haven't heard of iDance (English Version) it's a pretty cool. I've been watching it for about 6 months now and I'm impressed, yet I'm not 100% sure how much can be done, because I'm a cheap skate and don't want to pay for it. It allows you to create your own characters and make them dance to different types of music. The problem is figuring out how to make your own moves. I think it's something you have to pay for, but until I know that I'm not paying for something I can't test. However with the existing moves and chars in the program, I'm created the following.

    Well to follow up with what we did for FreedomDay 2007 - (773MB), this year Station 43 Firehouse in Dallas got a make over. We did quite a bit there, painting, built a hang over for the back porch, built an office, painted some more, cleaned out the bomb shelter and put up dry wall.. Always feels good to do something for others. Ouch, I'm sore! FreedomDay2008.zip - (406MB) of high quality images, thanks to Derek.

    My new ISP did a major Goof and told me they had static IP's and after I moved they told me they didn't. So I had to relocate all my domains to the 3rd party so please check out my hosting provider for the best deal I could find on the Internet.
