Monday and a new week begins

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, December 13, 2010

A new feature is up over at American Blues News entitled "Do You Hear What I Hear". There are four features on musicians under the age of 30. And we are working on another slection of musicians for a couple of weeks from now.

I was lucky enough to get to chat with Greg Gumpel who is the guitarist for the band Victor Wainwright & The Wildroots. I have known Greg for about a year and he gave me a deeper insight into why he does what he does in life. Hope you take the time to read the article on Greg and the others over there.

This evening on Musis On The Couch I get to sit with Mr. Paul Thorn, a great singer songwriting guitarist from Tupelo, MS and Ms. Kelly Richey from Cincinnati, OH who is a powerful rocker on stage, but off has a whole other world she is involved in.

Hope you find the time to come on over and listen live or to check out the archives anytime after the show ends.American

Spent all day Sunday doing holiday fudge. Once again, I set up each batch by measuring out all the ingredients and lining them all up so Nancy only had to make the batches. House smelled so good all day.

At the same time, I did our Christmas Cards. Got the photos printed and inserted into the cards. Got the address labels printed...began signing the cards.

Perfect day for it since it was about 29 degrees out with high high winds making it feel somewhere in the teens...goodness gracious, I moved south to get away from this stuff...we even had some snow flurries ....smoe...nothing that even stayed, but IT SNOWED!

What did you do this weekend?

  2. It's 11 degrees here in NW Arkansas this morning but feels like 2! Brrrrr.
    Saturday was spent working at the Christmas Store at the church. We give toys to families in need. This year, we helped 575 families, representing over 1500 children. It was a good day.
    Sunday evening was the candle light Lords supper. One of my favorite events.
    Tonight we start on the Christmas cards.

  4. We have rain this week, with temps in the 40s. No more snow is forecast yet, but if it keeps getting colder we might get some.

    Had a great time at the theatre Saturday night. Saw A Christmas Story...a musical based on the movie. It was delightful.

  5. CiCi Says:
  6. We listened to Victor Wainwright and the Wildroots. Pretty nice sounds.

  7. DRILLER: Not that cold today, but close. Nice festive, thoughtful weekend you had

    TRAVIS: How is it warmer by you? LOL...I want to hear more about the play

    TECHNOBABE: I do like them a lot.

  8. Jay Says:
  9. I've got the ingredients to make fudge, but I'm waiting until close to Christmas to make it.

    I got presents wrapped yesterday and am taking them to the post office today to get them shipped off. And with that, Christmas is about over. haha

  10. Coco Says:
  11. The band sounds good - think you've found another winner.

    I blogged about the weekend yesterday - some things just have to be shared.

    We had a humongous wind storm overnight and a power outage with it - good thing it was nearly 70 degrees F. Weird, unsettling weather for this time of year though. I'd rather have the snow.

  12. JAY: You are so danged organized...

    COCO: I love them for warm, wanna trade?
