Happy Holidays blues

Nope, not those blues, these Blues!




If you have a guitar bent, pick up a copy of Merry Axemas I & II. You won't be disappointed. These always hit the CD changer when company comes for the holidays!








And ya gotta have some bass, by one of the best Stu Hamm



And of course on a holiday side note, if you've never heard his version of Garibaldi's Peanuts theme you need to check it out. This is an older version (live in person is better or on his "The Urge" album) but you get the idea.

2009: A Beer Oddessey

By far one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. Gravity is not his freind.

Be sure to have the sound on for the music.

I had the actual file but blogger didn't like the format.

And so it begins

This was the view as I got home yesterday:

The prediction was 4-6" of snow by morning.
Well, they didn't get it right. Which is surprising. Usually we get way more than everyone.
This is what it looked like this morning:


Not much. Does look like Mushtaq got way more on his blog. Hearing from places north of him they got 9-12"!
Yep, I guess it's December in Michigan.
Took the older of the sleds in for a tuneup ($$ youch) and now realize I personally probably won't be able to ride it for another 2 months anyway. This is why I always looked forward to the first good snow the past few year.
Oh well, the boy will have fun.
And speaking of the boy......................


Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner

First Varsity match of the season and he snagged a starting spot on Varsity in only his 2nd season.
Also listed by the coach in the local paper's prep report on local HS wrestling as one of the key wrestlers on the team. Neither of us saw that coming.
So, saying good bye to free time on Weds. eves and Saturdays until March. We'll emerge then.
