“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” – Bob Marley

I have been working on my 13 Skill of Music.  While Kitty was in Hospital, an Electric Guitar I ordered off eBay arrived, along with a game for my xBox 360, called “Rocksmith“.  When I started I sucked beyond all belief.  I could barely hit the notes, yet the game quickly taught me and within a week I was able to play some parts of a few songs with very few errors.  It has been three weeks now and I am getting a lot better.  I am able to play most of the songs with few mistakes, yet I am still a long way from completing this skill.

I am inspiring my eldest son, who is a member of his school band, to learn the instrument which he has been asked to play.

It hasn’t been the most productive week.  Mostly I have been helping Kitty more around the house, and we have been busy getting the house in order so that we can sell it.  One thing I have been doing that is going through some of our food preps.  Re-ordering them, working out what we have and taking stock.  While doing this I found a few cans of peaches from 2009!  I decided to open one to see if it was still if an edible condition.  Let me say, they tasted great!  I can’t say the same for the vanilla custard that I made to accompany the fruit.

You can see the lid to the right of the can of Peaches showing the date as 2009.
