I took a continuing education class today regarding financing in real estate. My advice to everyone...hook up with someone you know and trust in the mortgage business, and ask them to fill you in on what's new on a monthly!!

This morning at Grace United Methodist Church where Barb & I belong, Strikepoint, a hand bell choir from Duluth, played. They were amazing. I really have never heard anything like it before. They were also using some things I've never seen before. They had this cool "thunder" gizmo, that looked like a painted piece of pvc pipe that had some kind of drum head on the bottom. Hanging from the drum head, was a long spring. This spring was really long, but no bigger around than a spring you find inside a pen. When the spring shook, it sounded like thunder. There are 11 players in this group, but they sound like 1100, because each one of them is playing several bells. They also played at the Pequot Lakes Auditorium on Saturday night. If you ever have a chance to see them, I highly suggest you do so!!
