Clean! From the Inside Out

Hummm!!! You think something is clean but take a closer look! This the front part of my computer, a fan, that I took out to dust! Look at the dust that accumulates INSIDE the computer! Yours may be this way too. My computer is easy to take the cover off so I often dust inside. You can use an air can to get most of the dust. But to really clean the fans, I had to also use tweezers and a toothpick to coax the dust balls out. And my computer isn't even that old! Well, it is now all clean!! :) :)

My New Violin!!

So, I've played the violin since I was 6 years old. And for the past 5 or 6 years, I have been playing in a bluegrass band. I play the mandolin, fiddle, and am learning banjo. However, I have never had my very own instrument (apart from 2 harmonicas and a penny whistle)!! Well, this Christmas I decided it was time. Time to have my very own instead of hand-me-downs that really belong to my parents. So here it is! :) A brand new Andare (German made) violin.
