Something seems to be wrong with my PC these days and I cannot watch TV with my PC today. I quickly turned my eye on TV when 360 was broad casted (half a day ago) and they were talking about Oprah's having to lose weight not to be thin but to be strong and healthy. I wanted to see that segment, but podcast doesn't include that part. Every time I see report on obesity, I always say to myself that I'll lose my weight, which I never put into practice. Whether or not I see that segment, I know I wouldn't. What's the best way to lose weight? Maybe keeping sweets away within my eyesight must be one thing. Currently, I have a strong craving for chocolate, after having some potato chips at 1:00am.
I cannot wait to see Planet in Peril documentary. Today, they showed elephant hunting report. It is really disturbing. They are killed only for their tusks. They are made into gorgeous ornaments or accessories. But there is one thing product that I am really familiar with. Piano. Tusk is not used in my piano, fortunately (or unfortunately?). But white keys of nicer ones are covered with ivory. I often played such piano. It feels so smooth and absorbs sweat from finger, so it is so dry even after hours of practice. (Does this sound not clean? Actually the keys of old pianos are usually yellow or brown.) I admit I'd always loved ivory-covered piano. But since then, I was wondering how many elephant's tusks are needed to make pianos all over the word. I thought all those ivory was removed from dead elephants but maybe this is not true. I suddenly feel so guilty for my love for ivory keys. I might feel even more guilty if my family were rich enough to buy an expensive piano and I had one.
