Rhythm Section

Baby Bob asleep in a dressing room at the 9:30 Club, Washington, D.C.

Bob and I traveled with Jeff’s old band, Lavender Diamond, quite a bit during Bob’s first year. Bob is quite familiar with the music. He likes to listen to it in the car when he is driving with Jeff.

“Daddy? There's jingle bells in this song.”

“That's true, bells like on Santa's sleigh.”


“Mm hm?”

“Who plays that tambourine in your song?”

“Uncle Ron played tambourine.”

“But Uncle Ron plays the drums! The kick drum and snare and cymbal and tom-tom drums! He very plays them!”

“He also played tambourine, that's another instrument that drummers play.”

“How many hands does Uncle Ron have, Daddy? Why are you laughing? He has many hands?”

 “He only has two hands, Buddy. Sometimes when we make music we record it once and then go back and add things to it, like tambourine. That's called an overdub.”

"OK... So how many hands does Becky have for the singing?"

Oh No - Lavender Diamond

  5. People know what it's like to face the challenge of cleaning a messy bedroom. Sometimes, it can feel like you're about to climb Mount Everest when all you're really doing is putting some clothes and books away. Luckily, it doesn't have to be as hard as scaling the tallest peak. Follow these simple steps to make cleaning your room a walk in the park rather than a mountain climbing race. شركة مكافحة حشرات بجدة شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بجدة شركة كشف تسربات المياه بجدة شركة تسليك مجارى بجدة شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالاحساء شركة كشف تسربات المياه بالاحساء

  6. Plan out when you will take a break. Taking a break to eat, drink, and kick up your heels is often a good idea. However, don’t let yourself become too distracted during your break! Plan out a chosen amount of time that you will take a break for. It is best to take a break after you have completed an entire task rather than in the middle of it. One example could be that you plan to take a break after you have cleaned out under your bed and before you start organizing the smaller things in your room.
    • Don't take a break if the time of your break comes around and you feel as though you're on a roll. Use that feeling of being on a roll to get even more done!
