The Grammy’s ….YAWN

The Grammy’s ….YAWN

OK…I’ll keep this short.  YES…I’m gettin old(er) and just don’t get it anymore.  I remember the days when the night of the Grammy’s was like the SUPER BOWL in my house.  ALL the snacks you could think of.  Some years there would be a house full of friends.  Not so much anymore.  The “this made me scratch my head” of the night for me was seeing “Sticks” Larkin from Live PD in the crowd.  REALLY??  How the hell does that guy get seats up toward the front?  I did record it so I may revisit sometime this week so I can fast forward through.  I just have a funny feeling I will get through the entire show in just a few short minutes.  I’ve heard some people gripe about politicizing from the award winners but quite honestly they did that years ago too!  To be fair I get it.  When I was younger I thought the Grammy’s were so cool and of course there were older folks that would stress their displeasure the next day to me.  They didn’t understand that guy from the Rolling Stones that looked drunk. Or, “what the hell is a Boy George”.  Yes, I get it…as we get older things change.  I fess up to it.  I’ll let you know (honestly) what I thought of the entire show later in the week after I watch the DVR’d version in its (fast forwarded) entirety.

Ozzy…worth the wait

Ozzy…worth the wait

Well, it’s been 10 years since an Ozzy Osbourne release.  For some reason I don’t get too excited over a new release but the new Ozzy album “Ordinary Man” had me putting it on a thumb drive and listening (at a loud level) all the way home tonight on my 30 mile commute.  If you’ve…read more »

When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

I recently put up a poll on our Facebook page regarding when you think will be the first day this year we hit 55 degrees.  Some interesting guesses.  It SEEMS like maybe August 12th?  That may be when the snow is completely gone. Now it’s my turn.  I think we may sneak close in March…read more »

It’s TAX Time

OK…how do you plan your tax season?  I know a LOT of folks that wait till last minute.  Especially if they pay in.  I actually try to do mine right away.  If I have to pay in at least I know right away and I can prepare and pay it then toward the deadline.  I’d…read more »
