Tuneage Tutelage - The Allman Brothers - Wrap Up

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, October 03, 2008

Want to start off by sending some Birthday wishes out today. Our most excellent friend LeeLee is celebrating her 50th today. Stop by and wish her well. She is traveling and spending her birthday with family, which is real cool, but it will be even cooler if she has all sorts of birthday wishes when she checks in. She is a big music fan and I thought this cake was appropriate for her.


Second up, this weekend the funny, sarcastic Sparky Duck celebrates a birthday and even gets to see Bruce Springsteen to celebrate. Head over and give him a quack and wish his Oregon Ducks well as they take on USC on Saturday! What other kind of cake would you give a duck?

Finally, tell Anndi Happy Birthday as she celebrates today.

Let 'em know Bond sent ya!


Gee, I have received this wonderful honor yesterday from one of our newest friends, DIANNE. I really need to arrange my awards again (hell I need to bring out the new template, but I have not had the time to tweak it)...Thank you Dianne..she said some nice words also..."I pass the Arte‘y Pico on to BOND. One of my newest friends. He truly should be a music professor, a guru of the arts. He does his homework; he presents eclectic choices in music plus all the other things his “couch” offers up."
