Happy Mother's Day

To all of the moms out there, my best wishes for today. I'm going out to my mom's place later today (she lives about an hour southwest of Salt Lake). The weather is good today, so it should be a good trip.

It's also my brother's birthday. Happy birthday, Rich.

The flu scare is getting a bit old; how is this flu doing any different from any other variety of flu that hits every year? I don't see a bit difference in the statistics, leading me to believe this is mainly hype being put out there by the media. Personally, I'm more concerned about bee stings, or getting hit by a car. If you have any contrary information, please let me know.

Happy birthday to the integrated circuit.

I have neither the time or patience to talk about national politics at this time; I do leave you with these related terms however: fustercluck and goat rope.

Listening to a playlist I put together Friday.

"We Gotta Get Out of This Place" by Eric Burdon and The Animals
"Moondance" by Van Morrison
"Take on Me" by A-Ha
"Walk-Don't Run" by The Ventures
"Go Where You Wanna Go" by The Mamas & the Papas
"Dengue Woman Blues" by Jimmie Vaughan
"Take the "A" Train" by Duke Ellington
"Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds
"Time Won't Let Me" by The Outsiders
"To Beat the Devil" by Kris Kristofferson

Decided to put the first and the last ones on here.
The first one is an old favorite, and used to get a lot of people singing along with the chorus when it would come on the radio at places where I was working.




This one is in a bit different vein; it has been one of my favorites from Kristofferson, and anyone who has ever been down in the dumps or had some hard times can probably relate to it.

Glad to hear you're finally seeing some good weather. I'm sure your mom will appreciate your visit too.

Van Morrison - Moondance. Probably at the very top of my list of all time favorites.

This flu is lasting through the summer and becoming more potent and deadly as a result.
