A recent gig gave me a chance to think more about accordians.

The owner of the accordian recounted how TSA wasn't sure exactly what it was. "Not too many people play the accordian these days." I imagined a replay of a funny scene from the Pink Panther (2006) where our heroes had to convince a security guard they were indeed part of the dance troup and NOT in disguise to gain entry into an invitation-only event.

"So.... let''s see you play the accordian, pretty boy!"

It turns out that there are many songs on my iTunes with an accordian in the mix, so much so that I could probably create a "accordian" playlist.

Another quiz

Yes, it's another self-quiz. Hmmm.... I don't want to read TOO MUCH into this... but...

Family is most important in your life.

Having a high focus on family indicates that you are a loving and nurturing person. You want to have a nice big family of your own, and you are very close with your siblings and parents.

Life Piechart -

Of course, does the category separations above mean that the buckets are mutually independent? Does mean that for me,

Fun = Love + Money ??

Does this mean that a FUN CAREER is more important that FAMILY?

And I only recall THREE questions that deal with health. Who writes this stuff anyway?
