He is Risen!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  Our church had a great turnout for the Easter program.  I had a wonderful lunch with family afterwards and got to sit on the couch and watch NCAA March Madness all afternoon.  I got up very early to go to sunrise service so I was too tired to …

It’s only Friday, but Sunday’s coming.

Good Friday is here.  As Christians the Easter season is what it’s all about.  Even more important than Christmas.  Yes at Christmas we celebrate His birth on Christmas, but it was His death and resurrection that made all the difference.  Good Friday represents the day our Lord and Savior died on that cross for our sins.  He did …

Respect

The internet gives many people extra courage to say things they might not normally say face to face.  Whether it’s anonymous or not.  Sometimes good, sometimes bad.  Bantering back and forth about various topics we may disagree on is common place.  Sometimes it evolves into hurling occasional insults back and forth. However for the most …

Duct Tape Drums

I covered these a few years back.  They used to have Zebra Stripes.  They are “Playa” brand drums.  Bought them many years ago when my wife said she wanted to learn.  Don’t think she played them twice.  They ended up being used and abused at my church.  After that my daughter wanted to play.  They …

My new iMac

For years I have dreamed of a nice computer based recording rig.  I’ve dabbled with computer based recording in the past, but was always met with limitations based on the speed and memory of the outdated computer I was using.  Finally I bit the bullet and got a system that was beefy enough to run …

Happy Thanksgiving God

I know I am not alone when I say, I need to stop and be thankful to God more often.  Too many times life rushes by with all it’s distractions and before we know it we forget to thank God for another day of life.  The same hustle and bustle that keeps me from having …

LTDs

It seems I have grown fond of LTD guitars lately.  I years past I walked by them and never gave them much thought.  I just wrote them off as ESP wanna-bes.  I have never been an Epiphone fan and assumed the LTD was just ESPs version of Gibson’s Epiphone.  I was wrong.  The LTDs I …

Our New Hobby / Mountain Biking

In an effort to be more active we went out and got ourselves some nice Trek Mountain Bikes. I say nice, because they are plenty nice for us.  Huge step up from a dept store bike, but nothing compared to what a serious mountain biker would ride.  Sondra has been riding a road bike for …

PRS Soapbar II

  This one feels a lot like my Korina, but the extra pickup and tone knob make it much more versatile.   Sold this bad boy to a buddy of mine. Glad it found a nice home with someone.  

The ICU is NOT fun!

About a month ago, I spent a few days in the ICU.  Talk about a wakeup call.  That will make you religious real fast if you are not already.  The weird thing is I felt fine the whole time I was there.  It was the doctors telling me that I was too sick to leave.  …
