The lost chord is one of my favorites. My dad played it over and over when I was a kid.

Another non-skier I see.

Interesting answers. thanks.

Club soda? Ewwww! :)
I'm with you on the Religious Extremists though...actually all religion, but that's another story. :)

I like cold club soda, especially with a touch of lemon.

I finally got around to reading this... you have ocarinas? You rock! Most people have know idea what I'm talking about when I mention playing the ocarina.

I don't guess I've ever heard all of Night on Bald Mountain. I think that's the one at the end of Fantasia that is paired with Ave Maria. If I'm right about which one it is, that's the only version I've ever heard.

I have a couple of small ones, but I'm not very good. I also play some with recorder, harmonica, and flute, but I'm way out of practice with the flute.
