Wow, last night was fairly busy at work - hectic before midnight, and just busy enough I couldn't blog. Got home in the morning, winds howling at 30-40 mph gusts. No d... Read more

Whiter Shade of Pale
Tuesday, January 27, 2015      5 comments

Always liked this song, but mostly just hummed along. I'd chime in with "trip the light fandango" and "whiter shade of pale". When I looked it up, I realized it was from 1967. One of the jokes about the 60's is, "If you remember them, you didn'... Read more
She Loves You
Monday, January 26, 2015      7 comments

In 1963, this was the Beatles first big hit. "I Want to Hold Your Hand" that I blogged yesterday, would have jumped to #1 immediately in England, but was blocked by "She Loves You". Oddly enough, in the US, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" hit it big ... Read more

From the 70's comes the Blues Image's one-hit wonder, Ride Captain Ride. The group wrote and recorded it. Their story is they needed a song right away, and the keyboard ha 73 keys. From that, the song evolved. It was later remixed as a "psyched... Read more

All kinds of weather alerts for today and tomorrow. Yesterday, the pups and I walked 5 miles. It was 57 degrees and sunny. Only wore a vest to have something to tuck Spartacus into at times. Today was 42 with wind gusts - supposed to have snow t... Read more
