Back on the block

Another long break from this blog, or blogging for that matter. I have been pretty busy organizing things in my new "old" life. I came back to Helsinki couple of months ago, after I got the go from the doctors. There's no permanent job right now for me here, so I have to do things on my own. And by "things" I mean concerts.

Finland however, is a very well organized place, that means, usually concerts are planned well ahead. So, what I've been trying to do is find places -halls and festivals- that would be interested in my crazy ideas on the one hand, and ways to realize those on the other. At least until now, everything has gone well.

My trip to Helsinki started with a report at Finland's major newspaper Helsingin Sanomat on the opening of the new opera house in Oslo. With a gala that lasted five hours (or was it six) and the royal family, I think that everyone in Norway is aware of the new opera. Later on, Radu Lupu opened the Helsinki festival -of which the most part is held in August- with a piano recital at the Finlandia house. Couldn't of course miss that -I enjoyed it. But only two encores? Long live Sokolov!

Then a bit of practicing- or actually a lot of it. At least in comparison with the last 12 months. And some panic, since some of my colleagues -with whom I try to get the chamber music concerts- aren't always as fast as I would like them to be. Especially when they have to send a CV or something... Yes, reading the previous paragraph makes me feel that the squirrel is back on the wheel. Though, I enjoy it now. More news soon! Cheers!

buzz it!

Have you ever heard of classical pianist Ronnie
? He's a brilliant artist. If you aren't familiar with who he is, he has this organization: Ronnie Segev's TOC that donates music lessons and instruments to kids in need. He also plays around New York
City... I found his Ronnie Segev's schedule online.

equipment,the group that inconspicuously used Phentermine, prevailed over Overweight vs. Obesity According to the National Center for Disease Statistics, a person becomes overweight when their BMI (Body Mass Index) is 25 kg/m2 or more. Obesity is more severe than being overweight. A person is considered obese when their body mass index is 30 kg/m2 or more. It should be noted that predetermine use is not recommended for people having normal body mass indexes: which are between 18.5 and 24.9. Most doctors will only prescribe it if your BMI is 28 or greater. The Different Faces of Phentermine Phentermine is sold under many labels. The most common brand names are Adipex and Ionamin but there are many names and generic versions of Phentermine, such as Pro-fast, Phentercot, Fastin, Teramine, etc. Your doctor will probably make the final decision as to what phentermine type or dosage is right for you. Normal recommended dosages run around 30 mgs per day. People become obese when the calorie intake is more than its utilisation, which means that we gain weight when we eat more and do less work. It is a well-known fact that calories are burnt and energy is released by engaging oneself in physical activity. Another factor is unawareness and being ignorant of the food's nutritional values and fat contents. You should be in the habit of craving for knowledge of what to eat, when to eat and how much to eat.
