From Here To China



Here in his boyhood home, he dedicated himself to long practice and hard work on this piano. His efforts invited this musician to play the piano on many of his world travels for years after he left California. On several occasions he very competently performed in front of national audiences but he never recorded any great works. There were a few occasions that were captured by the world on television and are now part of America's history. Do you know this musician?

He might have had an easier time of it if he had stuck with music!

I never imagined Richard Nixon! He seems to have had so many sides to him. I'm Canadian, but I've always been fascinated by him. Maybe that's from watching "All the President's Men" too many times!

It's always nice to know a different side...
