The Puzzle Queen!

Wendy loves doing puzzles - almost exclusively the Springbok brand. She had an idea the other day that she wanted to do a time lapse video of herself doing a complete puzzle all in one sitting. Below is the video from today's puzzle session.

Is it a Wonderful World?

Some of you may have heard that I have been taking piano lessons since the spring. I finally got up the courage (and the spare time) to record one of the pieces I have been practicing.

Below is a YouTube video of me playing "What a Wonderful World".  Let me know what you think.

Considering my recent change in employment status (anyone looking for an "unemployed 52 year old medical scientist"?). Now I am wondering whether I really should have selected something celebrating how wonderful the world is?  Either way, I played it at a rather melancholy tempo... that was a choice based more on skill, than on affect.
