I'm reading the best book ever right now - about a musician's musician. It is a biography of Nicky Hopkins, one of the greatest piano session players ever. I have post-its all over the pages for things I want to listen to when I finish the [more]

Re: OT Another Kmart gone.

I grew up in the 1950s and 1960s. We lived in Bonfield, Illinois when I was a kid and it was about 14 miles from Kankakee, Illinois. On Saturdays we'd all pile in our old Chevrolet Suburban and my Dad would drive us to Kankakee. There was a [more]

Re: Does this make you feel old??

I don't like wearing shoes in the house, but I do always wear slippers... except when I'm in bed or in the shower. If I'm in bed and need to get up to go to the bathroom, the slippers are right there next to me on the floor and I just slide my [more]

I'm 1/4 English too, but don't much care for most English food. --TheBaron

Re: Thoughtless Christmas presents

I wouldn't advise anyone to have just one child. Too much pressure on the child and too much at stake for the parent.

Re: Thoughtless Christmas presents

Sadly, that experience is common enough that someone wrote a song about holidays ruined by family members drinking. What a sad thing.
