various updates

In case anybody was wondering, the brief bit of good luck I had for a while has officially evaporated and my year is continuing to get even worse! This is truly remarkable, actually, because I honestly didn't think it could *get* any worse, but there you have it.

I am doing a lot of travel, but I got a nice keyboard and am practicing piano when I can, which is mostly on weekends. So my progress is slow, but hey, I am learning. I can now play "When the Saints Go Marching In," with chords and stuff. Big yay, me! The eventual plan is to work my way up to Tom Lehrer standards, Tom Waits, Warren Zevon, but that will be some considerable time in the future.
