Thursday Tidbits....

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, June 30, 2011

End of quarter is kicking my tail. Especially since 57 invoices came in wrong and have to be redone by the vendor. That is what happens when you follow a calendar with quantities and not the purchase orders you were supplied...

Freakin great!

Matt is leaving (or has left depending upon when you read this)...our trip to NYC is canceled for this year. Life happened and there is nothing we can do about it...

BUT, I think I will travel with Nancy on a trip to Louisiana this month and then we will take the weekend and hit the beach down on the Gulf. Not the ocean at all, but it is salt water and sand and sun...

Both my fantasy baseball teams have under-performed this year so far, but I have made some strategic moves the last week and I think they will help to get me moving upward in the standings.

Music On The Couch for this week with guests Elam McKnight and Bob Bogdal of Big Black Hand and Al Stone is up to # 9 out of 4700+ music shows on BTR...Yeah baby.

What? You did not listen or download it yet...what are you waiting for? Download it - check out these musicians you should know and you can help get the show to #1!!!!

Tomorrow is Five On Friday Day... wondering what I should do it on. Any suggestions?

Just received a email with some sad news.  Nate was married to one of my cousins.  They were about 6 years older than I was (and I guess they still are, well...) They divorced years ago but Nate and I continued to talk...until we drifted apart.  He was a decent drummer as I remember.  Well, the email was of a Memorial Jam Session at a place called FishTales in Ft. Lauderdale, FL that took place last April as it seems Nate (or Nathan as he is listed in the piece), had passed away the week prior to this jam.

Always thought about him from time to time and wondered what he was up to, but never found any information.

Sad he has gone on, he was definitely a cool guy with a kind soul and he looked out for the wild 16 year old I was back then.

Rest well Nate...

  6. My fantasy baseball team is totally dominating. Of course, it's just a pretend fantasy team this year. ;-)

     
  7. BeckEye Says:
  8. I hate hearing about NYC trips that fall through. I was just back for Memorial Day weekend and I miss it already. It's getting harder and harder to remember why I ever left in the first place!

     
  9. DIANNE: When it happens we will meet

    MICKEY-T: Too long...2.5 years I think..maybe 3

    IWS- JAY: best way to dominate dude

  10. Travis Cody Says:
  11. I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

     
  12. I always hate to track down someone and then find out that they've passed away. It seems to happen more often than not. ;)
