I found this site the other day and thought it needed to be blogged about. Below is a quote from their homepage.

Welcome to the web site for the Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division (DMRD), currently located in Newark, Delaware. The controversy surrounding dihydrogen monoxide has never been more widely debated, and the goal of this site is to provide an unbiased data clearinghouse and a forum for public discussion.

And an excerpt from their page, "What is Dihydrogen Monoxide." Please check this out folks, you owe it to yourself to learn about things like this.

The dangers, uses and potential threats posed by this chemical, Dihydrogen Monoxide, are widespread, and some feel, terrifying. Here is just a small taste of what Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is:
Some call Dihydrogen Monoxide the "Invisible Killer"
Others think dihydrogen monoxide should be Banned
Dihydrogen Monoxide is linked to gun violence
Dihydrogen monoxide was found at every recent school shooting
Athletes use DIHYDROGEN MONOXIDE, or DHMO, to enhance performance
Dihydrogen Monoxide has been found in our rivers, lakes, oceans and streams
Dihydrogen Monoxide is a major component of acid rain
Thousands die each year after inhaling dihydrogen monoxide
Dihydrogen Monoxide can be deadly
Find out the truth about Dihydrogen Monoxide

Learn all you can about dangerous chemicals like this one so you don't abuse them. And learn what they actually are and how to recognize them! I found that I was actually exposed to this chemical while on the road in the bus and I really need to take the measures needed to protect myself.

Yesterday we played in the last band concert of the year with one band and this afternoon we play a special concert with a band we don't usually play with. It's funny that now that band season is over, I feel this urge to pick up my trumpet and start playing again. The guys I play with (who are in the lead section) have been inspiring as of late. Yesterday I got to play Buglers Holiday in a concert! I've never played it publically, I remember looking at the music when I was younger and trying to play the first part by myself. I played the third part and the two 1st trumpets played the 1st and 2nd solo parts. It was so fun! The director asked right before we pulled it out "What do you think?" I tried to remember if there were any really difficult parts in it, but I figured if he thought I could do it then hey, I ought to try. I'm glad I did.
