Personal Changes

It’s a beautiful sight, isn’t it; this little farm just 2 miles down the road from the park we live in.  It’s been 10 years since this little town seemed like the template for a fresh start.  Honey Brook saved me.  I mean that quite literally. This is where I moved my life and my w...

Abbey Road Side 2 Medley – Re-re-remix

Giles screwed the poochie.  Let’s just be real about it.  The Abbey Road 50th Anniversary remix was less than stellar. Poor Ringo sounded like he was shoved in a closet and told to play with a tin bucket over his head.  While everything else was re-equalized to some degree, the orchestra remai...
