    I had a great time being in the spotlight. But my time is done, and I've passed the torch along to the one and only, and not to mention beautiful, super_crayon.

    Spotlight Rules -
    1. For the next 24 hours you can ask him anything you'd like to know. She can answer in all seriousness or be really silly (hopefully the former not the latter.) :biggrin1:

    2. After 24 hours she'll pass on the hot seat to the next victim/participant.

    3. Mr/Ms in the spotlight it's your job is to find a someone willing to sweat it out under the spotlight's glow. it's mannerly to PM the person first to make sure they are willing and available. Then begin a new thread announcing the next participant.

    At what age did you start formal music lessons?

    Which instrument did you study first?

    Would you recommend a specific approach (like Suzuki, for example) for beginning lessons for pre-schoolers?

    Where is the best place to search for a 1/8 or 1/4 violin in the Toronto area? Own or rent?

    Thanks very much, super_crayon! I have a 5 year old who wants to play the fiddle, and I very much want to encourage her.

    Hugs!

    If you could throw a dinner party for any six people from past to present, who would you invite, where would you throw it and what would you serve them?

    I would love to have the party somewhere that I'm familiar with but it would be awesome to have it in a historical location... How about the Chateau Frontenac Ballroom in Québec City?

    Menu would be:
    Antipasto plate & apéritif
    Leek and potato soup
    Baked (local) rainbow trout stuffed with lemon and rosemary risotto with green and white aspargus on the side
    Apricot sorbet
    Cornish game hen with mashed red potatoes (skins on) & steamed carrots, and everything drizzled in the hen jus
    Mixed green salad
    Plate of cheeses with honeydew melon
    Crème brulée, tea or coffee

    Guest list:
    Magdaleine MacDonell, a person I used to portray at a living history site. I have so many questions to ask her.
    Maynard James Keenan of Tool, and hope he brings some wine from his winery
    Antonio Stradivarius, in hopes he might reveal a few tricks of his trade.
    The three grandparents I never got to meet.

    Funny you mention Maynard! I was going to tell you this anyways, but now it's even more appropriate. Maynard is in the Big D today at a Whole Foods market, signing bottles of his wine. How ironic is that? :biggrin1:

    Do you like dogs?

    What's the sum of sin(3∏/2) + 2cos(tan(1/4)sin(8∏/3))?

    Right you are, man! Although, you'd be the man of the house, no? He'd be a guest.

    My Dad had a tape of theirs, probably a best of. My brother and I would listen to it while playing legos, video games, or while playing outside. All their tunes are so catchy!

    And on that note, I've PMed Amber1 but no reply yet... I'd like her to be next!
