Beer and Pickles

I got several good blog ideas after asking for suggestions on the Facebook page. I’ll definitely cover a few more of them in the future, but I thought I’d start with a subject that is near and dear to my…

Hardcore...

I've decided to let my hair down a bit and be a real rock star tonight. After taking a brief nap earlier this evening, I'm now up WAY past midnight.

The High Cell Shuffle


In Your Eyes (Live) – Jeffrey Gaines

What a great voice Jeffrey has. It might sound a little sacrilegious to Peter Gabriel fans, but this is actually one of those magical cover songs that…

Christmas Spirit Indeed

So it's normal to see (and get rather desensitized by) people holding signs and asking for money at the intersections around here. And around the holidays, many of the local churches take a note from the less fortunate, and send…
