Running program

I was asked by some friends to post this running program so here is the web site because I can't get it to link. Its a really good program to get your body use to running. It doesn't start out to fast and you can take your time doing it. If you have to repeat weeks, its okay. Enjoy.

Piano refinishing

As said on a previous post, I bought a piano. With in the week, my brother also bought a piano. He works at a cabinet shop and has the tools needed to repair wood so he began an adventure of refinishing it.

I helped him a little but this last weekend I decided to go down and spend the day helping him redo it. We stripped down the old varnish and carefully sanded the rest. My brother filled in a chip on the corner that you can't even tell was there now. We had a few mishaps during the process but did okay for the most part. I did hit my finger with a hammer while separating my bench but it didn't hurt. Really weird. Here is a picture but it looks worse in real life. This doesn't really do it justice.

We worked really hard on getting as much done of his piano as possible. The end result was quite pretty.

Guess what I did........

I did it. I bit the bullet and bought a piano. I didn't pay much for it, it needs a little work, its old 1911, but I love it and I am very excited. Within a week it should be in working condition. Woo Hoo!!!

Just thought I would share a picture of it before it began to be fixed since right now its on its back being repaired.
