Music Monday: Escapism – I think we all need it some days

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 […]

Music Monday: A record 2020 Hurricane Season is almost over

There’s not a more fitting song to wind down the record-breaking hurricane season … and 2020 in general for that matter … than listening to a live recording of Jimmy Buffett’s “Trying to Reason with the Hurricane Season.” This Music Monday song was written back in early 1970s and has been played time and time […]

Since I spend part of my day on the road, my mind wanders from the tiring chatter of political radio talk that never ends (and focusing on driving) to daydreaming about sailing and escapism. I suspect most everyone has dreams or plans for retirement, but some are probably a bit more realistic than mine? I’ve […]

Jimmy Buffett: sails thru 60

As an original “before the salt” Jimmy Buffett fan, I’m embarrassed to have missed his 60th birthday — I was there in the 1970s and have the original vinyl albums to prove it … along with books and concert memories — right Jeff? (am I getting that old?). Anyway, happy belated birthday Bubba. 😀 Time […]
