M.A.S.H. was on 4 different channels today at the same time . . .

I'm serious.
 
For those who do not know . . . I have had a back problem for the past 3 weeks.  Turns out I have an inflamed nerve in my back.   My doctor has advised me to stay home for 2-3 days, and to be as inactive as possible.

By 10 AM, I had finished my latest Colin Fletcher book, and I do not have any new books here at the house.  So . . . after checking facebook, etc., I was lying on the couch and watching the old boob toob.

At 11 AM, as I was checking channels, I noticed that M.A.S.H. was on at the same time on 4 different Dish Network channels.   And they were all different shows!   

Amazing.

For the day, I watched 4 more episodes of M.A.S.H. (my all time most favorite TV show), 3 episodes of Andy Griffith (I know a lot of people my age who wished they were Opie Taylor), and three different Biography shows (Bob Crane, James Coburn and Howie Mandell).  

Couldn't find a decent fishing show.

I hope I can stay focused on reading and writing tomorrow.  Cause' I don't want to turn on the TV again for a while.

My brain ain't going to be no mushy-mush!   Take that Alec Baldwin!

Glen Hansard talks about his well-worn Takamine Guitar

There is little doubt that the most famous guitar in the world, or at least the most famous Martin guitar, is Willie Nelson's guitar, "Trigger."

Another famous guitar is Glen Hansard's Takamine guitar, which he has played so much, on a daily basis, that it is even more worn than "Trigger" is.

The relationships certain performers form with their favorite instruments is truly fascinating to me.

Please enjoy the video!

Tuning a baritone uke to G-C-E-A ??

Well I'll be . . . it can be done.
If you didn't know, I use Aquila Nylgut Ukulele strings on my tenor and baritone ukes. Best sounding uke strings out there in my humble opinion.
I love my Kala tenor uke . . . but I've got such big bo-honking fingers, and the frets on a tenor uke are not exactly large . . . I can really only play chords on the first 5 frets.
Then one day a while back, I noticed on the package that Aquila makes a Baritone set tuned to G-C-E-A, just like my tenor. A baritone uke is usually tuned like the bottom 4 strings of a guitar . . . D-G-B-E.
Well, I jumped in and ordered a couple of sets. And . . . they work . . . at least to me. Now, I am not by any means a uke "purist." They are the "tools" I use as instruments when I sing certain songs. Restrung with the new strings, the Kala baritone is about as loud as my tenor . . . but with a little deeper sound. Some may not like it . . . but I do, especially as I work to learn the names of…

Goodbye Tom Petty . . ..

It was confirmed last night that Tom Petty died after being found in his home unresponsive and in full cardiac arrest.  Tom and the Heartbreakers has just finished up their 40th anniversary tour.  Tom was planning to spend more time at home with his new grandchild. 

Everyday is precious.  Live each day as if it is your last.

RIP Tom.  Thank you for the music!

God's grace, and cherished memories of people that made great music, still amaze me . . . ><>
