    the lava lamp was a great invention.
  2. Meaningful music

    Maybe -- not sure though, probably depends on my mood. I want to say that music has very little meaning to me, as for the most part, it’s just sound. I like it, it’s a fun way to kill some time, and it has been a daily part of my life for as long as i can remember; but, rarely does it generate any emotional response. I can listen to music that i find beautiful and yet it doesn’t “move” me a bit. I do use it during imaginative times in hopes of enhancing the experience and it’s a very useful tool; but, i believe that the pleasure is actually more enjoying my thoughts than the music. During those times, I can (for lack of a better term) “get lost” in the song; but, then i can hear the song another time and feel absolutely nothing -- sometimes not even paying any attention to it at all. I can create something on the guitar and like it a lot -- then just move on and often forget what i had just wrote. Even before i forget it, any pleasure derived was from the satisfaction of accomplishing something creative and not the tune itself. Brian May of Queen said that he doesn’t like telling people what his songs are about -- he wants them to attach their own meaning to them. He said that someone may attach a certain meaning to a song and would probably be disappointed to learn that their meaning is completely different than what he was thinking/feeling when he wrote the song. So, in that regard, i do attribute some memories to certain songs ... does that make the music meaningful to me? I guess in a way it does. The more i think about it, i’m coming up with the old chicken and the egg thing ... did i give meaning to the music or did the music give meaning to me; or is there even a difference?

    i’ve been physically present too many times when a person has exited this life; including when my 17-year old nephew was taken off life-support. No blood or gore; but, strangely a very horrifying thing to witness. My heart goes out to you Mark and The Boss.

    was a nice day here ... hit the 40s. Can’t believe I’m actually calling that a nice day ... checked the weather of my former homestead and it was in the 70s.

    One more story to show what it’s like to be related to me. My grandmother was getting up there in age (died at age 99). My sister had just bought a new house and my aunt brought my grandmother to town for a visit. We’re sitting in the living room and one of my sisters asks my grandma if my other sister had shown her the house? I’m sitting next to my grandma and she leans over and asks me what my sister said. So, i told her, “She asked if you saw the horses.” My grandma perked up, “oh, you have horses?" Then I got yelled at by my sister for teasing old people.

    Mike you’re a much better guy than me. The five of us brothers and sisters were at my Mom’s bedside before she passed away. She was unconscious one full day; but, awoke the next day. I asked her “do you remember anything about yesterday?” She said “no.” I said, “well, of all us kids, I helped you most.” She laughed.

    I wonder if Brian will turn into the Hot Sauce Nazi, ala Seinfeld’s Soup Nazi. “No sauce for you ... come back, one year!"
  14. Oldtimer's Hot Sauce

    To avoid litigation, i’m going to demand the following name changes to the product. Elway’s Elixir. The Chief (KC Style Hot Sauce), and The Bolt, with a beautiful powder blue label.
