IT’S LATE FEBRUARY, Groundhogs Day and Valentine’s are in the rearview mirror, the sun is getting high and the days are getting longer. So naturally, a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of…canoes!

IT IS A GOOD DAY FOR MORE WIT AND WISDOM FROM THE PIANO STUDIO OF MY MOTHER, Joyce Wood. It is a good day because this past weekend Kathy (who now teaches on Joyce’s Steinway in the Log Cabin Studio) had 10 students entered in the annual National Federation of Music Clubs festival/contest. ALL TEN received top, ‘superior’ ratings.
