My piano and violin concerts

Hogwart Music Academy, Father’s Day Piano Concert

I played Bach, Haydn and Beethoven at Pasadena Public Library. Some of my mordants were bad. And I had a couple of ghost notes. I like my musicality even though it wasn’t as much as I could do, because the piano was a little deaf. I think I could do more crescendos and diminuendos at the second piece. The third piece, I like the tempo but I still had a few ghost notes. When I play a ghost note, another bad note follows because the mind stays with the past.

Barbeque Chicken Drumsticks with Blue Cheese Radish Salad, Corn and more barbeque sauce on bread


This food is the best thing I have ever tasted!  The recipe is from Everyday Food , PBS site. But we changed the recipe. We used yoghurt instead of sour cream.  We didn’t use iceberg lettuce but we used spring salad mix. Worcestershire has a weird name, but it smells good and tastes good. When I smelled it I was sure that every person making barbeque sauce would use it.  I mixed the barbeque sauce and also I made the blue cheese salad sauce. I sliced and diced the radishes until they were tiny and thin. I slipped on the floor and dropped my frying pan! (I am joking.) I salt and peppered the chickens and put the barbeque sauce over them.  And I ate it and it was yummy!

8 chicken drumsticks
1 tablespoon chili powder
salt and ground pepper
12 ounces canned crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard

1/4 cup plain yoghurt
1 tablespoo balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
salt and ground pepper
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (about 3 ounces)
2 carrots, trimmed and peeled
15 medium-size red radishes, ends trimmed, thinly sliced

Serves 4 | Prep time: 25 minutes | Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Arrange drumsticks in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Rub all over with chili powder; season generously with salt and pepper. Bake until tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make barbecue sauce: In a small saucepan, whisk together chili sauce, vinegar, sugar, espresso powder (if using), and mustard. Bring to a boil; reduce to medium-low, and simmer 2 minutes. Divide sauce between two bowls: one for brushing and basting, and one for dipping.
  3. Remove drumsticks from oven, and brush with sauce. Return to oven; bake, turning and basting halfway through, until well browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Brush drumsticks with any leftover pan juices. Serve with reserved dipping sauce.

SCARY Storybook


When I was playing violin, I wasted my bow**. “No brains”, my mom said. I pointed to my head and smiled. 20 years later, I was poisoned. My mom cut open my head. She didn’t see a brain inside. Both my parents cut down, down, down. No brain. she was right. I had no brain.

** On my bow I went too fast on my bow, then I was stuck at the tip.

SCARY Storybook

Alive Or Dead?

I was invited to a Halloween party. The scary thing was that nobody knew if the decorations were fake or REAL. Even a Halloween genius wouldn’t know. I thought that was a huge blob of nonsense. I just marched up to every decoration and examined each one carefully. It’s so sad how much people work just to scare me. It’s no use.

When I exited the Halloween party, was I alive or dead?…
