I found a cool guitar recording at youtube.com of Bereli Lagrene, playing Hungaria.
I also found how to pull videos off youtube.com; Mozilla Firefox has an extension that allows you to save videos in FLV form called VideoDownloader. I still haven't found a converter to make it so I can burn them to DVD and watch them in a regular DVD player, but I know they're out there. There may be another way to save the videos that I'm not aware of, but since I went a while without knowing how to do it I figured I'd blog about it for any of you who might want to archive good clips.
We got a new blender. Everyone is using it like crazy :p So far I've used it twice to make shakes for breakfast (1/4 cup walnuts, 1-2 tsp chocolate power, small handful of raisins, about 1 cup water). It tastes good, actually, and the raisins are so pulverized I can't see them in the shake. Just those 4 ingredients make a very drinkable, ALMOST milkshake like liquid. Ok, enough raving about the blender.
I've been reading a book about a guy who runs 100 miles and more at a time. My TINY long run of almost 8 miles seems very unimpressive. I don't understand how he can run that long, but I know that I'm just itching to get out on my next run. And no, it won't be 100 miles ;)
