Two Music Shows Saturday (Fabulous Heftones)

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Morning Singing
Lansing friends: We (Brian and I, The Fabulous Heftones) are performing Saturday 4/30/2011, at Foods For Living in East Lansing (almost to Okemos) on Grand River Avenue.

Our performance is from 10a-noon. This store is across the street and just east of Coral Gables Restaurant. They are having a huge truckload sale- it should be quite a festive scene.

Dinner Serenade
Then later, from 6:30 – 8:30pm, we will be returning to our home venue, Altu’s Ethiopian Cuisine. It is at 1312 Michigan, East Lansing (east of Frandor & west of Harrison, on the north side of the road).

It would be great to sing for you, if you are in town. See you soon?

Random Hint #2 – Polishing Silver

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Here is another quick tip out of nowhere:
Toothpaste is a good, nontoxic silver polish. I love sterling silver jewelry, and when I want to wear some earrings I’ve ignored for a while, toothpaste is right there and easy to use.
Just wet the silver item, and put a little toothpaste on a finger or a cotton rag. Rub gently, rinse and dry. Easy!
Perhaps finer silver needs a finer grit than this, but it’s great for everyday jewelry. Go to it and shine!!!

Image added May 1: handcrafted earrings I purchased in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in early 2005. First one unpolished, second one shiny from a quick rub with toothpaste.
