  • Twitter Addiction Broken

    I’ve been addicted to Twitter for nearly 16 years. I’ve been very happy about that addiction and have no regrets. It never interfered with my work (when I was working) and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it in retirement. I rarely (as in almost never) post/tweet (at least not in the last 10+ years, I […]

  • Uh oh, he’s back…

    As the kids say: “It’s been a minute…”. My first post was on Christmas Day, 2006. It was short and “hesitant”. My second post was almost a month later, even shorter, and contained a typo (which I never fixed). That same day, I made my first real post. It’s really long, meandering, and […]

  • Asus Wifi Router AiMesh Odyssey

    This post was rattling around in my head before the current stay-at-home situation arose. Somehow, it never found its way to my fingers, until now. This will be a typical techie post by me, in that it will be long, rambling/meandering, and likely bore the people who used to mostly read my music […]

  • Email Spam Coordination Across Different Services?

    Surprise! It’s been 1,743 days since my last post. This isn’t a music post, so even if you are momentarily pleased to see a new one pop up in your feed, you’ll likely be disappointed by this “techie” one… Disclaimer: this is 100% speculation on my part, I have done zero research to […]

  • A Wicked Birthday

    Today is Lois’ birthday (Happy Birthday Lois!). We had expected to be in VA all of May. Unfortunately, a few details got in the way and we returned to NY this week and will remain here for the rest of the month. If we were down in Richmond, we’d likely have gotten together […]

  • Goodbye New York

    I’m rusty at the blogging thing. My two most recent posts were 10 months apart and this one clocks in at nearly 9 months after those (see a pattern emerging?). That might explain why my first attempt at writing this one left me uninspired and had Lois groaning. To describe it as dry […]

  • Miracle on I-81

    We take multiple multi-week trips a year. The first two weeks of February happened to be one such trip. Before we left, the south got hit with the big ice storm. Northerners were making fun of people in Atlanta and Birmingham (even I recalled some locals panicking from 1/4″ of snow on a […]

  • Ray Ferrer and Lagond Music School Partner for Fundraiser

    I haven’t blogged in 10 months. Lois asked me to write about our experience last night, so my self-imposed silence is now broken. Last night we attended a fundraiser at the Lagond Music School. I’ve written about the school a number of times. Every time we have an interaction with anyone associated with […]

  • Music Blogging Hiatus

    This post is about a week later than it should be. My apologies to those who had to ask why I hadn’t blogged this week. If this were any other Sunday over the past five years, I’d be blogging too. The difference is that this would be the first of three posts (we […]

  • Hurrah! A Bolt of Light! at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Hurrah! A Bolt of Light! headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. It was their final residency show. They’ve played every Friday in May 2012 at 10pm on Stage 2. I’ve heard about them for quite a while now but this was my first time seeing them play. I’d […]
