It’s That Time Of The Year

Besides watching football on Thanksgiving Day, my of my favorite things to watch is the news about those who wait for a store to open for days before Black Friday. I wonder of these people are really as crazy as they seem. Going through all that trouble just to shop??

I think I’ll do what I always do and that is to stay home and order my things on the internet. Why fight the crowds when I can have what I need delivered to my house. These people are just not thinking to clearly. They are fun to watch though.

Scary Days and Nights

The moon is full in the sky at this time of year. It’s really huge and can be menacing when the clouds are just right. It sets the tone for Halloween and that’s fine with me. I always enjoy trying to give the kids a little scare before they get their treats. It’s a tradition that my father started.

When I was little we always decked out the yard with all manner of scary things. I have taken over this tradition and added to our collection of stuff. My yard will be the envy of all others on the block. I am waiting for tomorrow night!

Guitar Center In The Big Apple

I am seeing more and more Guitar Center stores in some of the towns that I shop in as well as more T.V. ads, which I am sure will become more abundant as the Christmas holidays approach.

I have heard so many good things about guitar center in new york, so it’s cool to know that they are popular in other parts of the country as well as the Big Apple. I miss New York City, but I am glad to have relocated to a climate a tad less intense come the winter months.

Space junk

One thing that man has loved to do is explore space. I will always remember when the U.S. landed on the moon. Our efforts in space are continuing and an important part of that is the space station. It brings us much information about the world we live in as well as outer space.

One problem that the station experiences now and then are the possibility of colliding with space junk. These are typically pieces of metal from shuttle debris, jettisoned rockets, and destroyed satellites. The station was recently forced to change its course in order to avoid space debris. I am glad our station will be ok and hope they can avoid any thing that would cause harm to our endeavors in space.

Crazy Heart

While visiting at my folks the other evening, I found a copy of the book, Crazy Heart, on the bookshelf in my brother’s room. I asked if I could borrow it and he said to take it and pass it on.

I watched the movie with the same title when it came out last year. I thought the movie was outstanding and Jeff Bridges made the main character totally believable.I know a little about the music business, as my dad was a musician and we always had a house full of band members, singers and other entertainers coming into the house carrying their instruments in their nice utility case and boxes of all shapes and sizes.

It will be hard to read the book without picturing Jeff Bridges as the main character. But maybe that’s a good thing. I think it helps to vividly picture the characters while you read.

So far the book seems to be following the movie pretty closely. I just got into it last night for a couple of chapters. I plan to read the book and then re-watch the movie to compare the two.
