A little more music from Gregg Allman please …

| October 14, 2016

In keeping with my monthly habit of sharing music, these last two months I’ve listened to more Allman Brothers Band than usual … although there is at least one song from them in every Pandora set!  Likely the attention was due to Gregg Allman having a "medical scare" and dropping his tour dates at the […]

Short montage of songs Jimmy Buffett has not played in 10 years

| June 15, 2016

Saw an update on Jimmy Buffett’s Facebook page and sharing a montage of songs he and the Coral Reefer Band have not performed in 10 years. The great part about the old JB music is that I know most of it by heart … so it doesn’t seem that long to me.      Montage […]

Music: Run-Around from the 90s by Blues Traveler

| October 7, 2015

Usually when posting about a song I’m listening to or talking about music, I drift back about four decades … surprise … this time I’m only going back TWO decades!

The Lexington Lab Band continues to perform great music

Their efforts might not be the creative talent some are looking for, but these guys really do know how to expertly perform […]

WVU marching band salutes the U.S. Armed Forces

| December 2, 2011

I may not be a fan of West Virginia University football … but I have no problem applauding their marching band. As a Cincinnati Bearcats and an Ohio State fan … I say “nicely done, WVU.” (thanks for the link Suzanne)

Escapism … I think we all need it some days

| June 4, 2011

I was feeling melancholy last night after posting the fifth straight down week for the benchmark Dow Jones Industrials, and it got me thinking that there aren’t all that many more years before this ‘pirate’ (moi) hits another milemarker? There just isn’t that much more working time left in me to complete “the planned” retirement […]
