I recorded a rough demo on one track yesterday of my new song. It's my personal praise and thank you. You can hear it on my My Space pages:

I haven't posted in a long time. I have lots to be thankful and praise God for. My wife is doing really well since her surgery (herniated disk in neck). She just got a job with Blue Cross Blue Shield starting in August. It seems like every time I pray for someone, something good happens. I even prayed for inspiration in songwriting and I just wrote my first song of praise(and thanksgiving)!
I'm really excited about it. I'm going to try to record a demo version some time this week and post it on My Space and/or my webpage. Gotta go back to work.

It's a beautiful day today. Way too nice to be at work. I'd really like to be outside somewhere playing my guitar, or playing with my dogs. I know my friend Ron took the day off to do some recording at home. I'm really wanting a new acoustic guitar with a smaller neck. I covet this Seagull Entourage Mini Jumbo. Maybe we'll get a nice bonus this year at work! Well as my wife says " if it's mean to be it will be".

I'm just coming back from lunch and thought. It's been about 6 months since I've posted. I need to do a major overhaul on my webpage. I'm going to stop procrastinating...tomorrow. ~(8(l)
My wife, Shelby is going to have surgery on a herniated disk in her neck on Tues. May 8th. Please pray for her and her doctors. I know that prayer is a powerful thing, especially when more than one person is praying. I've got to go back to work, but I will be posting more often.

I've been thinking lately about what great bands were around here in the late 70s.
H-Bombs, Secret Service, The Fabulous Knobs, Cigaretz, X-Teens, Bad Checks, and that
"just for fun punk group", Butchwax. We(Butchwax) got to play on the same bill as Secret Service,Cigaretz, Bad Checks and the Fabulous Knobs at places like the Free Advice, Cafe Deja Vu, The Pier and the Cat's Cradle. Some of the most fun times I can remember. There is a great blog site with mp3s from these groups and more that you should check out.

Small World
I played in a local band called Butchwax in the late 70's early 80's. One of
my co-workers said she saw us at the Cats Cradle when she was 18. One of her
best friends is Robert Keely (H-Bombs, Nevermind, Secret Service). She also
knows Mitch Easter. Mitch and Bobby were two of my local heroes after I saw the
H-Bombs for the first time. My buddy Ron has been talking with Dave Gourley (Secret
Service) about recording. I'm itching to make some music. I dislocated my index
finger on my fret hand about a month ago, so I haven't been able to play guitar.
I hope I can start soon though.

PS: Dave, sorry about the spelling before.

Separated at birth? What do you think?
After not posting in 6 months, 2 in 1 day. I just thought of this when I sent the link
to Ron's blog to a friend at work who knows Bobby.
What a slacker I've been. No posts in 6 months. I've posted a couple of times on my myspace
blog, but I had intended for this to be my blog. I'm sitting here at work, drinking some Jamaica
Blue Mountain Blend, listening to the Zombies Greatest Hits and not really wanting to work.
Listened to Over Under Sideways Down when I came in this morning...what a great record!
The Stooges on the way to work. Check out my friend Ron's blog for a couple of mp3s and great pics of Bobby and Chris from Secret Service and Kitty of the X-Teens.

Oh well, I better at least pretend to be productive
