cecilia disse:Oi, estou gostando dessas dicas mas, chego em Paris dia 22/09 às 15:40 no areporto Charles de Gaulle e vou ficar no Hotel Charma, Rue ed Maraichers, qual melhor transporte e o preço , por favor e obrigada.

Live performance?- The road kills musicians.Before recorded music- The Archduke subsidized Mozart.  And he only performed for the royal court.ISPs are making all the money; they should pay a little something.  But they have a lot more money and therefore a lot more political clout than musicians.What can we do?The Band once famously sang- “If they don’t pay what we like, then we have to go out on strike.”King Harvest has surely come.

I have had some success promoting my blog with google AdWords.  After purchasing some printed materials on Vistaprint, I received a $100 coupon in the mail for free advertising with google AdWords.  So far, I have not spent any money for the advertising and when the $100 runs out, it is completely up to me whether I want to pay for more.  Adwords puts out detailed reports that show me what key words people searched which ultimately resulted in a hit on my blog.  Just a tip…

Minäkin olen viettänyt lapsuuden ja varhaisnuoruuden paperitehdaspaikkakunnalle, joten aihe on varsin läheinen. Omasta suvustani useampikin on saanut leipänsä Tehtaalta (nimenomaan isolla alkukirjaimella), ja isäni jäi pari vuotta sitten eläkkeelle 40 vuoden palvelusuran jälkeen. Joten kosketuspintaa on. Ajattelin, että tässä voisi olla hyvä joulunpyhien lukeminen, tykkään varata sinne aina jonkun herkkupalan.

Hola, estaba yo cotorreando las recetas de mi tato y ahi has salido tu. ¡que guay¡ lo primero por ser como eres y lo segundo porque vas a aprender un monton con esta idea genial de tu padre, estoy muy orgullosa de ser tu tia. Un besico y sigue asi¡¡¡

Love this!  My most impulsive thing was to move from a small town to the big city over 6 years ago… I’ve never looked back.  Now to start taking that leap with my next dream!

So true!  This is so inspiring to me – to just push a little bit harder.  I want my kids to catch that vision young too!  And I love how this video mentions kindness as well as performance in other more obvious areas.

Superb site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get advice from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks!

AMEN sister! I think it is harder for musicians whose gifts are so apparent to see themselves as separate from their gifts.  May we all see ourselves as God sees us.Really enjoying your blog.

Que restera t-il de DH ? Une série excellente qui n’a pas su tenir la distance, et ce dès la moitié de son show. Une série à moitié ratée donc, ou à moitié réussie, selon le point de vue. Une série qui, pour moi, n’arrive pas à être bonne de bout en bout, n’est pas une grande série.

If they’re calculating chances to actually win, I’d actually rank someone like Prokhorov far higher than Zyuganov, even though I think that Zyuganov is, on balance, likely to finish second ahead of Prokhorov. That’s because I think Prokhorov is most likely to either do really well, or really badly – nothing in between, and because I think Zyuganov will remain forever trapped in the 10-25% zone, regardless of who his main opponent is.Mironov as second favourite to actually *win*, though – that I just can’t fathom.
