Nora Welcomes Gabby To Her Piano…

June 20, 2014

This has been quite a day, indeed! And frankly I’m just as confused as you probably are!

Where’s Nora?

May 26, 2014

April 21, 2014

March 30, 2014

It seems that lately I’ve garnered quite a reputation in the gossip rags for being possessive of my piano – often to the point of rudeness.

March 10, 2014

Being an internet celebrity is not all about the bright lights, cameras rolling, and millions of fans screaming for more. Sometimes I just want to curl up with a good book with plenty of pictures and words to inspire and educate. And boy could I have used this new book from Quirk Books back in […]

Have I Been Spoiled By Success?

February 18, 2014

There is a new video, rather one-sided, I might add, that is causing some stir on the internet. In the interest of truth and for the exposure of yet another example of manipulative use of the media, I am providing a link to this video.
