And now for a drive-by post

Finally got some sunlight; the past few days have been almost constant rain, until we are having some flooding in some areas of Utah. When the ground dries a bit over the next few days, I hope to get the garden ready. There are lots of perennial herbs that I have been able to use, and some of the greens, but it has been a bit chilly for stuff like tomatoes, peppers, and squash.


Some areas of the country are getting hit pretty hard; my best wishes go out to the flood victims of Mississippi, and for the people in Missouri who are fighting with tornadoes.


I've been getting stuff ready for a vacation; my wife and I are leaving for southern Utah tomorrow morning, and will get back sometime Monday. Hope to have a good time and bring back a few interesting photos.


A mix, with mostly oldies. Any favorites in this list?

"Gimme All Your Lovin'" by ZZ Top
"Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin
"Sometimes I's A Bitch" by Stevie Nicks
"You're No Good" by Linda Ronstadt
"My Way" by Frank Sinatra
"White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane
"Termination" by Iron Butterfly
"Thinking Of You" by Christian Kane
"Conquer Me" by Blues Traveler
"Summertime" by Janis Joplin

A CW song by actor Christian Kane; he may be familiar to you from the series Angel, and is currently one of the main characters in the series Leverage.

One of my favorites from a blues group that has been around for a while.

An old blues song from one of the greatest of the blues ladies. Janis looked like ten miles of bad road, and had a voice like the day after too much booze and cigarettes, but she sang with a passion and feeling that gave her music a depth of soul that most singers only can aspire to.

Shouldn't be any more snow here in the valley from now on; winter is finally over.
