"To All Who Come To This Happy Place, Welcome." - Walt Disney at the Dedication of Disneyland (now Disneyland Resort, Anaheim)
This is my first try at blogging, so I hope everyone will be patient with me on this.
I'm not intending for this to be a blog about what I've done this week, but rather a way to post ideas and a few experiences (bad and good) here. There are some experiences, though, I will not post, simply because they are too special to just put up on the internet anywhere.
For those of you who do not know me at all, or are barely acquainted with me, my name is Cassandra Dawn Bushman, I usually go by my middle name of Dawn.
There's a lot more about me you will get to know in posts to come.
What I will say now:
I like reading, playing the piano, composing music for the piano, genealogy, technology (more on that later).
For reading it depends upon my mood. I love the scriptures (Holy Bible, Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, Book of Doctrine and Covenants), and also enjoy some fiction (Jane Austen) and a lot of non-fiction (business & finance) books.
The book I'm currently reading: The Age of Turbulence by Alan Greenspan.
This is a fantastic book if you are into US and World history and politics, even if you are not into finance.
As far as music is concerned, my loves are: Barry Manilow, Mannheim Steamroller, Barry Manilow, Michael McLean, Barry Manilow, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Barry Manilow, Hilary Weeks, and oh, did I mention Barry Manilow?
Yes, I am a Fanilow and have been for more years than I care to admit. Let me just put it this way, I endured a near miss of a plane crash to go to the one and only (that I've attended) Barry Manilow International Fan Club Convention in Washinton, D.C. It ended up being a great trip, and I met wonderful people from all over the world there. The best part of it, though, was the private concert he gave us, just him and a piano. Now, I am for the most part contented with just listening to his CD's.
