Hey Steve - do you ever have any problems with the laquer making the ink run or the paper wrinkle when you put "decals" on like you did on this project?

Is there anybody out there with big pocketbooks that's had a chance to play with the new Dell Ultrabook?

I'm a trumpet player.  After playing a Bb trumpet for 10 years, I started playing C trumpet. Pitched one step higher, but the same basic fingerings.

The weird thing is, all my muscle memory AND pitch memory were programmed so that when I pushed this valve, tightened my lips this much, and blew this hard, then a particular note would come out. When I did the same thing on the C trumpet, a note a step higher would come out. I would instantly try to bring the pitch down by habit.

It was VERY weird.

On top of that, I ended up reading Bb music on the C trumpet, so I would look at, for example, the first line on a treble clef staff, which would normally be 1st and 2nd valves pushed down, but to the get the correct pitch (E), I'd have to play a D on the C trumpet, which required pushing 1st and 3rd valves down.  Quite a mind bender.

On top of that, I also played both in the same day, sometimes back to back.

I feel your pain.

Do you listen to Element Opie Podcasts? Do you have a phone? Then you can help me run a marathon!

Take 2 minutes and dial 1-559-I-AM-OPIE (1-559-426-6743) and leave me an encouraging message or even a "kick in the pants"!  Then Mark from www.elementopie.com will take your recorded message and insert it into my playlist for the marathon.

That way, on mile 24, when I feel like giving up, your voice might be the one that gets me that last 2.2 miles!

Thanks!

This is what my Team Beachbody Coach did with 12 weeks of Power 90 and then 12 weeks of P90x.  He just won the monthly challenge and $1,000  http://www.teambeachbody.com/connect/success/-/user-story/203055893
