Funny conversation

Ben: I have noticed when you feed the baby if you talk to him he takes more.

Sarah: I know but I run out of things to talk about.

Ben: last night I told him about our trip home we are planning for Christmas.

Sarah: oh what did the baby say?

!Warning music theory content!

Sarah and I decided to just play music on Monday night for FHE.  It was fun to sit back down at the piano and just play around.  In the past I was teaching Sarah some basic music theory, specifically interval and chord identification, and basic analysis.  Most of the time I really enjoy this, however it general leads into a conversation about how from sarahs perspective the music theory rules are this or that... and really not that important, and from my perspective using the rule and knowing when to brake them is what is important.  We are really on the same side, just see things different.  Anywho back to the story.  Because of this I was playing and decided to see what I could come up with in a new key that I don't really play in.  In the more common keys my hands just always seem to find the same chords, but in new keys there can be lots of exploring.  Well I chose the key of F# major (or Gb major for you pessimists) and started with the tonic (an F# Major chord). 

And over time these are the chords we came up with:

 F#major         to          e# minor         to             d# minor 

However we then had a fair bit of discussion about where the next chord should go and we both landed on the B Major chord.  So when you put that in therms of theory we get a....wait for it......a

I        iii (in our case iii6)       vi       IV    back to     I

Which just happens to be a very common theory progression.  Now that your all asleep I will let you judge for yourself,   Listen here to the chord progression.  I think the theory makes it sound good, Sarah thinks it sounds good because it does.  (I do note I may be making her case in a slightly understated manner).

How to know your wife is pregnant...

In case you were wondering I thought I would show you a few ways to know if your wife is pregnant....

When you see note like this, it must mean she cannot get cool and you should leave the ac on, even though its not that hot...

When you buy tums in bulk, It is much cheaper than getting them in those small day use packages, you know the ones with only like 200 tablets...

Your wife has a new place to put her ice cream bowl, and she likes ice cream...
Your wife starts collecting clothes that are way too small for you...

Now all you have do pick the name...
I guess that all for now... Thanks dear for growing my offspring.

hey no cow tipping

On wednesday of this week I was just leaving the clinic in benton city to head to the other clinic I manage in prosser when I saw a really odd site.  A cow was standing on the side of the road, I slowed thinking that some had gotten loose, however I soon saw it an overturned semi full of cows.  I saw the semi driver, and several cows running around.  I pulled over and soon saw three cows in the east bound lanes and realized I better get them before the get hit.  I herded them back over to the other side of the road where there was more room and got them to join the other cows standing there in shock.  After emergency crews arrived I took off, but hey who new I could rustle cattle on my way to work?  Here the rest of the storie
