Family are going home today. I played a few tunes on the piano and they said that they didn't like classical music as it was 'boring' and couldn't I play chart music instead?

Beethoven and Lizst will be turning in their graves.

I love Classical music, mcflurry. You can play for me anytime.

I am so very happy to be sober after struggling to get sober for 2 1/2 years; this is a big one for me :-). Many of you played a part in helping me get to this point and I will be forever grateful.

Congratulations, Saskia - so very happy for you!!!!!

Fortunately, my mother's function went well. My brother and I were very civil to each other. My mother was very happy with the family event and it went smoothly. Prior to the function, I resolved to keep a positive state of mind and to only think of helping everyone at the function celebrate and enjoy. Thankfully, that worked !

Another 24 hours of serenity, calm and sobriety pls ! Its 8:01am here !

So very glad that it went well, Kaneda. Great news!!!!

Here's to your positivity!!!!
