@justine_robin I wonder if he’s connected to the Fred Meyer stores of the NW. One of my favorites.

Swing Dance billboards up. Christmas lights on the house are next…
A beautiful day to put up Swing Dance billboards!
This woman that went all UC Davis on the Walmart shoppers really helps us all remember the reason for the season. #not
Happy Thanksgiving all! I’m grateful for my family & that we live in the greatest land of opportunity on the planet. And for cranberries.
Did #NBC forget there’s a parade going on behind Al Roker?
@sarahbstudio any duet. Alto Sax & Horn transposing to Eb - an easy transposition.
BrianDietzen Happy Thanksgiving eve! Can’t wait for the kids to get to sleep tonight so I can put toys under the turkey, and fill their socks w/gravy.
Ok, family room completely rearranged. Much better, thank you. Now making sausage-oyster dressing & watching The Twilight Zone
@JulieKastner Hello Julie. Thank you very much. I appreciate the feedback.

Shaw: “We are really good at teaching our kids to play their instruments, but we’re are lousy at teaching them to perform.” #WIBC2011
Shaw: “It’s ok to rip a little sheet metal as long as there is consistency and core to the sound.” Don’t be afraid to be edgy #WIBC2011
Shaw: “I could not believe the level of crap coming out of the horns!” on hearing CSO horns from behind as a youth #WIBC2011
Shaw: Dark quality of sound grows w/ distance. Must be brilliant at bell so it sounds rich/dark, not peanutbuttery gooey to aud. #WIBC2011
Shaw: Horn is not an instrument by itself, but a composite w/ it’s surroundings. What comes out of the bell isn’t what aud. hears #WIBC2011
JW Shaw: Horn Ss need to know what the horn should sound like. Listen 2 great players-be inspired, whatever form. Soundtracks, etc #WIBC2011
Ponto: What’s role & life force of each voice? What is internally implied shape & expression? Choral does this; band should more #WIBC2011
Ponto: Blend v. Balance. Blend is mix of dif instr on similar lines. Balance is relative weight of dif lines (SATB or Mel/Acc) #WIBC2011
In Bob Ponto (U. Oregon) clinic at Western International Band Clinic. Wish me luck. #WIBC2011
@mikecrain Hey Mike. Yes, we’ll be at TubaChristmas at McClatchy on Dec 10th. I believe I’m slated to conduct a couple of numbers.
I’ll put on the brakes & he’ll fly right by. RT @TubaChic: Apparently you just missed Tom Skerritt at that Starbucks

Southwest flight cancelled. Next one 4+ hours later. Sigh. There goes half of our fun day in Seattle. #WIBC2011
Great job tonight Bear River Jazz Band at the Pinesmen Club. Next up: packing for the trip to Seattle!
@AgentCoke Get a QR code tattoo that people could scan with their phones and learn all about you. Or a dog.
Some moron who keeps giving out my email as his own is apparently flying JFK to SF. At least his emailed flight info from Delta says so.
@byperc I don’t teach film, I just talk about them from time to time. Enough to recognize my students’ ignorance.
4 days of rehearsals prior to 10 days off that begins with a great trip to Seattle for the Western International Band Clinic. #WIBC2011

I’m seeing coffee and eggs in my very neat future.
@sensibleflutist I prefer his 7th Symphony.
@brandtschneider w/ everything competing for their attention, old films lose out. I often make film references & get blank stares from Ss.
Long day of grading. 3 day weekends are so fun!
Those were possibly the best scrambled eggs ever. Made with turkey gravy, heavy cream, cheddar cheese, and thyme. #recipes
Jeffylube Has anyone tweeted “it’s 11:11 on 11/11/11” yet?
Definitely looking like Kid 4 is going to be either a publisher or writer. She’s writing about 2 or 3 story books a day #5yoLit
Time to send the uniforms to the cleaners… Marching Season is done for another year. Now, where did I put that baton?.. #musedchat
@RuudHein Had been sending ‘em 1@aTime to Evernote w/ the Android app, but this takes care of it all. Doing my tweets, retweets, & favorites

@mikecrain yeah, I understand. It really just comes down to personal preference. I’m always trying something new to see if I’m missing out.
@mikecrain I’ve been using Seesmic both on desktop & mobile for the past month. Totally love it!
northeagles I control my PD:reading books, journals, articles-meeting w/colleagues & asking questions, twitter, writing blogs, joining book clubs#edchat

Large spider at the top of the bedroom wall. I used a 3 iron.
The victory pic for Moby: http://t.co/QlsxeUGi Oktoberfest meal from brass quintet gig. That was a tasty win!
Looks like after all this I’ve come full circle back to #MobyPicture, which is what I began using 3 years ago after researching them all. :)
After reading TOS: TwitPic, Lockerz are out. Yfrog, Moby, Img.ly still in. + that Yfrog & Moby keep tweet text. - Ads on Yfrog & Img.ly
Testing Img.ly. Here’s Kid 4 lighting a fire on the front walk. http://t.co/GsYOxqmy
Looking at MobyPicture, Img.ly, Yfrog, and TwitPic. Never been a fan before, but TwitPic wins primarily for having more sharing options.

@MusicEdTech yeah, I do have lists set up - which are very helpful, but I still have weeding to do.
Easy to sleep too long on a dark, rainy morning. Thanks Daylight Savings for having my back!
Dinner a success. Steak/tofu stir fry, ginger rutabaga in heavy cream, & candied pears.
All right. Time to begin work on my famous, oft-requested Stir Fry masterpiece. Ok, well it isn’t famous yet, but it will be in an hour.
How many people can you realistically follow on Twitter and actually stay on top of what is posted? I feel guilty for unfollowing but…

Starting to feature student-arranged tunes for Pep Band! #MusEdchat
RT @BethStill: Imagine if every teacher shared their BEST lesson/class in a shared online location? The ability is there, but so many won’t
@broglarkin I think I’m going to dedicate this Nov to writing on my blog daily. More productive for me than the eventual novel.
