The big news lately is that I deactivated my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts, and uninstalled my Facebook Messenger app. I’m going old-school for the second half of my life (ages 60 to 120). By “old school” I mean typewriters, film cameras, paper notebooks, wax crayons, and this web site. Therefore look to this website for materials published by me on the Internet. Oh yes, and I changed the theme of my web site, to reflect the larger, general change in my online presence.

Microsoft’s WIndows 10 Creator’s Update, which recently came out, added a nifty feature to the Photos app: the ability to quickly make short videos like the one above. I may use this feature more frequently. I like it!

There was a photo here of some of the lead sheets played by the house band at the Empress Hotel in Victoria. But I’ve deactivated or deleted my social media profiles, and so links to those profiles no longer work.

But about that band–it was, according to this link to a history site (Brothers Forbes from Victoria), the house band at the Empress. They then moved (for higher pay) to the Strathcona Hotel up the street, where they remained for about 40 years.The music was given to me yesterday by Douglas College and I swear it will be played again! Will fit in nicely with my project to play music for the old folks.
