Snappy Fridays – Roy Thomson Hall

I was walking from Metro Hall to work today and looked over at Roy Thomson Hall.  “Hmm…” I thought to myself. “I don’t recall getting a photo of this place from this angle before…”

Snappy Facts:

– Capacity: 2630

– Opened: 1982

– Home for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Mendelssohn Choir

– During its conception and construction, Roy Thomson Hall was known as New Massey Hall.  Its official name was acquired on January 14, after a CAD $4.5 M donation from the family of Roy Thomson.

Snappy Fridays – Guitar Tune-up

Well…ok…I’m posting this on a Saturday… SNAPPY SATURDAY.  HAPPY?  LOL!

Several weeks ago, I got back into an old hobby of mine: cleaning and restringing guitars.  I do play a bit of guitar and tool a bit with my two (almost) 30 year-old steel-string acoustics, which I may snap later on.

Anyway, my friend’s very well used and loved guitar is pictured here. I had offered to prep it (and have it “show ready”) for his son.  This was because his son was going to use it to perform his first live performance.

If you want to see some of the “before” pics and some “after” pics, read on…
