There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

Mary and I are getting ready to go out. We've both been pretty well stuck at home the last few days. Mary has been supervising the installation of new sod, I've been working my head off getting a book ready for this coming week (including inserting customer screen shots, tailoring training materials, etc.) and it's been a challenge keeping up with everything. So, it's a nice day, Katrina's remains haven't arrived here (she hasn't even gotten to her eventual landing spot, which looks like it'll be closer to Mississippi than Florida this time), and, since I have to go bye-bye-airplane tomorrow (to beautiful Rockford, IL), we're going out, determined to have fun. Bye!

The hurricane that's headed toward the Gulf Coast. They think it's going to make landfall near New Orleans.

John, I got The Concert For George at the Library, and I've watched disk one. What an emotional experience! The music was great, but when really sent me over the edge was Paul McCartney getting all teary when he played the ukelele and sang "Something"...and then they segued into the full stage band'orchestra.

Dhani looks a lot like a youger version of his father. Imagine being that age and being on a stage with the likes of Eric Clapton and Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr? And I thought the kiss at the end of Ringo's last number was...fitting.

I couldn't face disk two, maybe tomorrow.

thank you for suggesting it.

I think the second disk is mostly backstage material and some additional concert footage. I haven't seen it, either.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. That George was so loved and respected by some of the most talented musicians in the world speaks volumes to the tragedy that his death was to so many.

The more I see Ringo, the more I love him.
