Friday fleeting thoughts...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, January 08, 2010

Thanks to all for the suggestions regarding the text spam...good friend DANA from "Amid Life's Crisis" did remind me that as a Verizon subscriber I can go onto my account and block the phone numbers I do not want to receive text messages from...all is good and safe in the world again!

So, it seems that Little Ms. Annie of ANNIE & BURL LIVE on BlogTalk Radio has challenged me to a duel to the death contest of Name That Tune. The two kids were doing their show last evening and The Burl (he is know to all his friends, relatives and creditors as THE Burl) mentioned my new show "Music On The Couch" which will premier on February 8th at 9:00pm central time (shameless plugs will continue!) and Annie feels like she can beat me in this musical trivia contest...

The challenge has been accepted and now we await a time and place for me to show the world that she can not compete with me....

y'all know I am now going to lose this contest by a landslide and look like a dang fool...but what the heck-a-doodle - it should be fun anyway.

So, yesterday I was working on booking some additional guests for the show and stopped by the website of a gentleman we reviewed here on The Couch last year...Mr. Charlie Morris, who is one hell of a musician and songwriter.

I knew Mr. Morris spends time in Switzerland each year and was looking at his schedule when something on the front page caught my eye...

I was really floored to see it and it made me smile!

Since it is that time of year, let me announce I will NOT be giving up meat or bread or pasta or anything else for Lent...

Just needed to clear the air on that...

Traveling back to Dallas on Monday and will be there through Wednesday, but this trip is not as intense as the last one, so I should be visiting and posting the whole time...I just hope it gets a little warmer before I go.
