Picked up WSMB 1430 last night.

Wow, Tim Tron sure has come up with a lot more terms.

Glad Canada and Switzerland are back on shortwave.

Have tuned into "From the Isle of Music" on WBCQ 7490 a few times and enjoyed it.

Good songs and good music,  and good company to share them with!
That’s what you’ll find this  Sunday afternoon at the Black Dog in Stirling.
Yes! THIS Sunday afternoon! 
So come on out and join us  to share a few tunes at the Amazing Jam? Maybe some of your own, maybe a couple  from someone else....
The Black Dog, 227 West Front St. in Stirling.   
We start up at 2 pm, run until    5....
Looking forward to see you  there.
*And    don’t forget to check the Facebook page ‘BV Amazing Music’ for postings    about more music and events in this area. There’s something happening    here....
The ‘Amazing Jam’! Even more amazing music... 
This Sunday afternoon  at The Black  Dog in Stirling. We’ll be playing music there for about 3 hours. Welcomed by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and  restaurant, our music is appreciated. 
Once a month on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday afternoon (May  15th). Time is from 2 pm until 5.
The format is a ‘song circle’ with  the lead changing from person to person among the group. Everyone has the option  to offer a tune when their turn comes around, or pass to their neighbour if  they’d rather. Depending on the music, the mood, choice of instruments, etc.  some will choose to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer to sit out and listen.   DSCF1663
We invite you to come out and join us, making music with old friends;  for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.
“Bring your instruments, your voices and your music. It’s  all unplugged  and it’s all good! Guitar, bass,  harmonica, banjo,  mandolin, ukulele,  fiddle, accordion,  flute, celtic harp – the list goes  on.
“There may be only 4 or 5 of us or maybe a whole room full of  musicians. A place for ‘first-timers’ and experienced  players alike. A  good bunch of people playing all kinds of music together.  People in their teens all the way through  proto-geezers. Maybe even an incipient-geriat or two....
“The blues does not rule. Any acoustic music from punk to polka!”
(Baritone sax and tuba set up in the  parking lot....)
Hope to see you Sunday afternoon in  Stirling.

This was an absolutely terrible movie with a choppy plot. Screw these characters and all their worthless values, as well as the overgrown fratboy man-child hook-up culture this movie represents.

Saturday, May 7, 2016


In adition to the far-fetched plot and poor acting, I note the following about this movie:

- Jeremy can remember the story behind every set of keys in the jar?;
- Jeremy calls every Memphis Bar and Grill: I doubt there are 399 establishments by that name in Memphis;
-Sue Lin calls Memphis "God-forsaken": from everything I've heard about it, Memphis isn't a town that could be described that way;
-Sue Lin drinks straight vodka: she is officially braver than I am;
- Elizabeth eats steak, home fries and mashed potatoes in the same meal: I'd like to see her arteries, and her teeth after all that blueberry pie, for that matter.
