Random Musical Thoughts

A while ago, I ripped all our tapes and CD’s to the main computer. I’ll be investing in a turntable to do all the albums soon, perhaps before next winter. I just made a playlist of all the songs with a Pete Goble writing credit. It’s an interesting list, but probably contains less than a …

Lose a phone lately?

Granny’s home has the usual utilities, electricity, natural gas, water, and some others, satallite radio and TV, land-line phone and DSL. We also have cell phones. On Saturday, during the amazing presentation of “Go Diego, Go Live”, I lost my cell phone. It was in my pocket early in the show, I used it to …

The Lost is found

Last fall, I hauled out a cool game that I remembered from my youth, so I could enjoy it wth GD1.  She had great small muscle coordination, but she couldn’t manage both the ball and the jacks at that time.  I put it away after she left, but one of the 10 jacks was missing. Oh …

Great Singer

I’ve enjoyed Barry Scott’s singing since I first saw him.  Check out this great video on YouTube.  Or, this one.  Or all of them.

List — or Lists?

Last night, as the troops were helping me with the dishes, I said that something needed to be put on the list.  A family member said, “You’re always putting something on a list”.  That was a correct statement. When I worked, I kept complicated project plans, with date assumptions, and other frightening things.  Now that …

New Pictures

Papa has been taking a lot of photos lately, and I’ve not done too well at posting them for the world to see.  We recently attended a wonderful festival hosted by Joe Mullins, the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival.  The photographs of the bands onstage are posted here.  Rhonda Vincent, Bobby Osborne, The Hart brothers, David …

It Happened Here

I was working on a project yesterday, when D3 came running down and told me about this.  The shooting part had already occurred and police were trying to secure the building and find the shooter.  I assured her that anyone running from the law would not be driving into our sub, a couple of miles …

The Real World

Welcome to the real world, is what I thought when we arrived at my Mother-in-law’s home, “up North”. They were at the end of one bang up winter storm. The snow wasn’t too deep, a couple of feet where it blew up drifts behind the house, but it’s April, for heaven’s sake. I saw her …

The List

My to-do list ran over 25 items this morning.  Perhaps I’m making too many lists?  Or putting too much on them?  Updating this blog was not on it; that pretty much shows why the list is so long.  I’m down to 11 things, so it’s getting better.  Why do the cats know I’m leaving?  I …
