Well, having bought myself a cheapish bass guitar for my birthday in May to play around with until I'd saved up for the Strat, I find I love it. I bought the strat last month, but only play it once a week while spending hours practising bass. The lovely depth and power of the sound and the way a good bass line underpins everything else is very I satisfying. Started lessons on the bass in June and picked it up very rapidly. In the last few weeks my teacher has been giving me songs from his band's playlist to learn. All 70s and 80s party songs which are great to play. Two songs a week, but on Monday night he gave me three. Already worked out the bass lines and can play 'em, so I've picked another song off the list to do. Poor hubby and daughter have to listen to the same songs over and over... Still, G told me his band was having problems getting a regular bassist, and I was next on his list! Only 70 or so songs to learn... Always liked a challenge, but let's hope the current guy hangs around a bit longer yet!
House hasn't sold yet but may be an offer coming from a couple up North who really liked it. Fingers crossed.
Hugs and bass riffs for anyone who got through to the end of this ramble! Xx

Was just reading the article on the new size 000. 23 inch waist. LOL. Back when I was a teenager sewing my own clothes, a 28 inch waist was a size 14, a 26in was 12, 24in was 10, and 22 in was 8. So the new US 000 was between 8-10. size 0 was about a 12. "Ooo, look at me, I was a 8 and now I'm a 0!" Dream on, Babycakes, the only thing that has changed is the number on the wee label.
Yes, of course you can fly, Peter. You just have to believe...

|Your EQ is 160|
Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.
Seriously though, your whole "Don't Worry, Be Happy" philosophy is really what defines emotional intelligence.
You're warm, open, and very optimistic. You know how to act appropriately, even if you don't feel like it.
You are a good communicator, and you have little difficulty with personal relationships - even when you're dealing with difficult people.
In general, you are successful, capable, together person. You get what you want out of life.
