Le piano est un compagnon, un complice, toujours prêt à faire écho à vos sentiments, à votre humeur. Un ami peut vous contredire, vous mentir, vous trahir ; le piano jamais ne ment, ne contredit ni ne trahit le pianiste. C’est un confident, toujours prêt à l’écoute. Il ne répète ce qu’on lui confie que si le compositeur le lui impose

Radio today sucks. It just does. I love music. I don’t love hearing the same 80’s rock all day long though. If I have to hear one more AC/DC song or something by Twisted Sister, I’ll go back in time and make sure that Dean Schneider played the fiddle. The main problem with modern radio is that the freedom is gone. The large corporations are pushing a little too hard. Yes, they make lots of money by playing the same twelve songs all day long, but come on.

Music as a whole is suffering because of it. I challenge you to write down over forty different songs in a day, even twenty. Good luck. The same 80’s power ballads are played multiple times in a day. Where is the new music? By new, I mean songs by artists I haven’t heard. Not the next Nickelback hit that they cut from their money making cookie cutter. I’m almost at the point where I’m going to put a country CD in just to ease the suffering.

I never witnessed it, but my dad says radio used to be cool. There was some rockin’ guy who’d spin the tunes he felt like playing that night. A DJ now presses play on his pre-loaded list that the big corporations are pushing with everything they can muster. Good morning! Here’s your daily dose of AC/DC and Twisted Sister.

The small time stations just can’t compete. It saddens me that there are is an unending supply of new amazing artists just waiting to be heard. Bands like Sphongle, London Elektricity, Animal Collective, The Mountain Goat, Fever Ray, and Movitz. Where is a station that plays their music? There isn’t one. If I heard a new song on the radio I would be ecstatic. I need my faith renewed in radio. I’ve slowing been growing less and less fond of the whole radio idea in general due to the the executives in suits. Everything is getting less personal now.

Let’s stop a random person and play what they have on their MP3 player day. That sounds exciting! Also, these companies are missing an influential group of people that is only getting stronger. People aged 14-25 have no real way to relate to the songs they hear. I didn’t grow up to these songs, they mean nothing to me. I’m not alone in this. We need new music. The executives can still make their millions and drive their Lamborghini, all we ask for is some variety. Surely I’m not alone.

JERUSALEM (April 15, 2013) – Cardinal Seán and a group of 29 priests of the Archdiocese of Boston have traveled on an Easter pilgrimage to the Holy Land this week, and they’re bringing the readers of blog along with them.

On the last day of their pilgrimage, the pilgrims began by walking the Via Dolorosa, the Way of the Cross, the path through the streets of Jerusalem that Jesus walked with the Cross to the Crucifixion. After celebrating Mass, they thanked those who had taken care of them on their pilgrimage and prepared for their flights home. As they waited, news of the bombings at the Boston Marathon back home reached the pilgrims and they united themselves in prayer with those who were hurt, their families, and the emergency workers who rushed to care for them.

All this week, our colleague George Martell is traveling with the pilgrimage, embedded with the Cardinal and his priests so we can bring you photos, blogs, videos, and audio reports from the Holy Land from the pilgrims at such places as the Basilica of the Annunciation, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Transfiguration, Qumran, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Upper Room, and more. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus with Cardinal Seán and the Archdiocese’s priests as an Easter retreat experience.

Please stay tuned to, as well as and and our Facebook Page at and Twitter account: for the latest updates from the Holy Land.

San Juan – Old San Juan from Air (Postcard)

Image by roger4336
Old San Juan from the air, seen from the west. The entrance to the harbor is in the foreground. Morro Castle ("El Morro"), which guards the entrance to the harbor, is just to the left of the photo. The large brown building at the far left, a hollow square, was the barracks for Morro Castle.

The red gate in the foreground at left center was the main gate to San Juan. The large white structure in the center foreground is La Fortaleza (fortress). It is the official residence of the Governor of Puerto Rico. The large white building on the hill to the left of the gate is Casa Blanca ("white house"). It was built in the 1520s by Juan Ponce de Leon when he was the first Spanish governor of Puerto Rico, but was not completed until after his death in 1521.

The Plaza de Armas is the open space in the center of the island. It was the main square, and the place where weapons were kept and the militia met. The Alcaldia (city hall) is there.

Cruise ships dock in the old harbor at the right. Many of the resort hotels are at the top right. The dark area in the center of the coast at the top of the photo is another fort, which I did not see. The new city of San Juan is to the right of this photo.

It was dark by the time I returned to the ship. I stopped for a beer at an outdoor tavern under the city wall, called "Princesa." It was in a park of the same name, on Paseo de la Princesa.

Best viewed original or large.

Hello fellow techno lovers, or those just waiting for the inevitable conversion to a new faith. From Sash to Picotto, this top 10 techno songs list really holds its own against any other on the web.

My own personal top techno songs may not be your own, nobody is perfect! If not then ultimately – fair enough. It’s completely relative to perspective although there are many songs many people like, so in some ways it’s more of a cross section of what people, including myself (yes I am a person), feel about techno. Of course you will get the odd techno viking saying, hey that’s not pure techno, and to be honest in some respects they are right.

Most techno is more hard edge, but the feeling is very similar and sometimes so hard to distinguish, that often many techno actually becomes more of a techno/trance combination, or even electro/techno.

I think all that matters though is the music, if you love electronica and the whole good vibe scene that goes with it, drop in – have a few Shandy’s and just appreciate it for what it is – really good music. What more can you ask for? OK probably quite a lot in all fairness, but it’s a pretty damn good place to start.

Deciding what is and is not techno can be hard even though there are techno cd’s dedicated purely to it. I actually sat down with my best mate (who incidentally is a an amazing producer of the stuff!) and we came up with a list for the top 10, but it can be pretty hard to distinguish between a lot of the tracks out there for what is and is not techno to put into our top techno songs list, or best techno songs, however you want to put it.

Ultimately many of the tracks are actually a mixture of trance and techno, but I’m sure most of you won’t mind as geniuses such as Tiesto and Darude have created many brilliant tunes down the years for us to listen to.

So here is our list of top techno songs, enjoy!

1.Sandstorm – Darude
2.Equador – Sash!
3.Insomnia – Faithless
4.Wizards of the Sonic – Westbam
5.Mysterious Times – Sash!
6.Lizard – mauro picotto
7.Children – Robert Miles
8.Encore En Fois – Sash!
9.In The Silence – DJ Contacreast
10.Komodo – Mauro Picotto

So I hope you like my top techno songs, I would love to know your own favorite top techno and ultimately your top techno songs, so please feel more than free to let me know in the comments box at the link provided and I hope to hear from you soon!

It’s all about the music!

AKC CGC – Canine Good Citizen Test Center – Feb 22nd
Event on 2017-02-22 18:00:00
Canine Good Citizen testing by invitation only. You will be contacted with your appointment time. Please arrive early. The AKC's Canine Good Citizen program is recognized as the gold standard for dog behavior. In CGC, dogs who pass the 10 step CGC test can earn a certificate and/or the official AKC CGC title. Dogs with the CGC title have the suffix, "CGC" after their names. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you'll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life. We sincerely hope that CGC will be only a beginning for you and your dog and that after passing the CGC test, you'll continue training in obedience, agility, tracking, or performance events.
