  • Sweet Bitters CD Release Party

    We’ve seen Sweet Bitters live three times now (including last night). The first time we saw them was just over a year ago at Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn. I covered that evening in this post. Seven months later we saw them perform at Googie’s, covered in this post. As noted in that […]

  • No GLEE Here

    Now that the regular TV season is over, I’m a little more attuned to potential new shows to watch, particularly during the summer. I really like Jane Lynch a lot, in particular her turns on Two and Half Men (one of my favorite comedies). So, when I saw a commercial for a new […]

  • PeopleBrowsr Boggles the Mind

Many first-time users abandon it pretty quickly too. I’ve been using Twitter consistently for over two years. In my opinion, there […]

The main exception is that Lois has gone out of her way to make some of my milestone birthdays very special affairs. That included my 30th, 35th and 50th. This was not a milestone birthday for Lois, but I decided […]

  • City Slickers Bluegrass Festival

    This past Saturday, May 9th, 2009, seven of us attended the City Slickers Bluegrass Festival in Richmond, VA. How and why we came to attend will be the subject of my next post, this one will just cover the event itself. There were three headliners and one opening act. The opening act, Page […]

  • Twitter for Business Webinar

    I rarely accept invitations for Webinars (online seminars). I know Twitter reasonably well, having used the service regularly for over two years. Why then did I attend a Twitter for Business Webinar this past Thursday? Two reasons: I knew one of the primary presenters for a number of years, so I had reason […]
