Monday and a new week begins...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, November 14, 2011

At the suggestion of my friend Gary, I picked up the new Stephen King novel 11/22/63. I have read the first 30 pages and it has grabbed me already. The sign of a good novel.

The premise behind the novel is 'what if J.F.K. had not died on that fateful day.

This stuff is good!

I am planning on reading some more after I finish this post. Well, that is until the Giants-49'ers game begins.

It is one windy day here. Almost all the leaves have been blown off their branches in the last 16 hours or so. Nice thing is, it is not cold. It is actually a beautiful day - 72 degrees, wind speed of 21+/mph with gusts to 40.

Had the house to ourselves from about 1pm until 11pm on Saturday. Did a quick trip to the store and then Nancy and I got to spend the day just relaxing and enjoying each other. Friday was the 'official' anniversary of our first date trip to the zoo, so we made dinner here and caught up on American Horror Story on TiVo!

LOL, remember, Nancy bought me the firs season of Dexter for our first Valentine's Day! We dig the unexpected and spooky.

Dinner was Spaghetti with clam sauce and sauteed Scallops on top. Had about 5 lbs of Little Neck Clams I steamed open in the clam sauce made with clam juice, minced clams, garlic, white white, basil, heavy cream and some crushed red pepper. One pound of scallops were sauteed in a mixture of butter and olive oil until they had were browned on both sides, then drizzled with fresh lemon.

Add some crusty Italian bread spread with roasted garlic and some freshly grated Parmesan Reggiano and heated in the over wrapped in some foil.

Yeah baby....delicious!

Tonight I host Suzanne Forschino and Sly Geralds, the creative force behind the F&G Band Featuring Edlene Hart a funky R&B/Blues band from the New York area.

Suzanne and Sly write the music, Sly plays bass and Suzanne's husband plays drums. Edlene hart has a kick your butt voice!

Then Music On the Couch stretches further than ever before, all the way to Australia where Anni Piper will join me.

It will be 2pm on Tuesday for Anni when we discuss her three albums and how she plans to take on the USA with her music.

Hope you can join us LIVE or even on the podcast anytime afterward.

Last week's show is at #12 for the week as of Sunday. 

5 Of Your Sparks

  1. Hot and sweltering here! And your dinner made me realise I'm hungry and it's lunch time. And make a not to myself to get the new Stephen King - I haven't bought his for a while as I got tired of the gruesomeness, but this JFK book sounds good.

    Enjoy your Australian on the (music)couch!

  3. Uhm...Sly plays "ass"?

    Oh those typos. Hehehehee.

    We didn't get the 49er game out here. I kept up with it on I suspect I'm happier about the outcome than you are, eh?

  4. I don't know why we got the Giants/9ers game here. Seems like this region would have been more interested in the Lions/Bears game. Thank goodness for the internet!

  6. I'll be buying the new King book. I'm a big fan and think his last few books have been some of his best.
