So one of the things I hadn't thought about is that certain groups monitor the blogs, so that simply by mentioning DELAVAN ART GALLERY, for example, or DAN MAFFEI, I merit some attention. Of course, they're looking for positive attention, so I doubt the words Walsh or Sweetland will get me repeat viewers.

Speaking of Sweetland, I think he's stalking me. I've seen him twice just this week. Oh, wait, I work at the civic center, never mind. But the first time he was buying a hot dog, and I'm pretty sure he parked his car in Judge Tormey's spot.

The post-standard recently reported that the governor is sending out a lot of angry letters about empire zones, apparently to yell at companies that got the benefits and hired little or no people. The article doesn't say for sure what the next step is (hopefully something more than another angry letter). It's a good first step, but I say we mail out one big angry letter to all our state representatives in the form of a signed petition.

The Barack Obama fundraiser at the Delavan was a good little event. I didn't get the phone call from Tom Buckel I expected but I did get called by a friend about some goings on this weekend, and unfortunately the crowd was between me and the door, so I had to go hide behind some art and take the call. Sorry to anyone if I seemed like the guy from that bit on Trigger Happy TV who would yell into the giant plastic cell phone (they actually did have one skit that began "I'm in an art gallery!")

Maffei.

It's actually called a Google Alert. At Delavan Art Gallery I send out press releases and information about us all the time. Sometimes it's hard to know when we are covered. A newspaper may pick up the story in an area where I don't read local news. A debate may pop up on Syracuse.com in which we are mentioned. An article may get published to its-allhere.com without my realizing it. Google Alerts are awesome for tracking what's being said about the gallery on the internet. It's not foolproof, but it helps. Try it with your name... it's fascinating. That time you posted a comment on some discussion group five years ago will pop up like it was yesterday....

By the way, I just reregistered and got this nice letter in the mail from my New York State Assembly representative thanking me and explaining the legislative process... how a bill becomes a law. I'm disgusted that this needs to be explained on an elementary level when someone registers to vote, but it's so true. I might slip it under my neighbors door one night inconspicuously. They actually have elementary school kids...

The relevance of identifying the most appropriate style and guitar size for a person who's just starting to learn how to play a guitar can't be over-accentuated. Learning to play on the completely wrong beginner guitar may lead to aggravation with lessons, impede improvement and may also develop poor technique in playing the guitar. Considering that the acoustic guitar instrument is such an easy musical instrument to be able to learn how to play, there's no reason for this to happen if a student trains on the best suited acoustic guitar.
