If you want restaurant ideas let me know. Colonial parkway is worth the drive, doesnít take long either.

Hopefully I am a day or two when you are here.

I donít know how old your kids are, but if you can only do one show at BG I highly recommend celtic fire in Ireland. Itís really good. I enjoyed it and my daughter who is almost 4 really liked it.

It was 50F and raining last night. 20F and snowing this morning. Had to crack a quarter inch of ice off of the storm door handle to get back in the house after Benson's morning walk.

The SportWagen was safely nestled in the garage, so it was warm and dry when Mrs. rjones28 headed to the station.

All kinds of bad stuff happens when you leave tierra firme.

There's a guy named Elwyn who has a bunch of YouTube vids of cross-wind takeoffs and landings at Birmingham (UK) airport that can be fun to watch:

I saw he massive pileups on Interstates in IL on the news this morning.

We hit 68 yesterday. Temperature is currently dropping and it's very gusty. Around 3 am we had a squally line come through. It sounded like someone was spraying my bedroom windows with a fire hose.

See if you can spot the difference. Look very closely.

Got 2 letters in their correct position in line 1, never got another letter after that. Weird brain block, or something.

Auto tune, beat adjustment, etc. I like music that sounds like humans made it not computers. (Except for the stuff made with hard drives, I find that really cool. I don't know why.) A missed note, timings a little off. Etc. Put some heart and soul into it.

There's a blurry line there. When does "human" become "sloppy"? If a human performer is able to execute their music with perfect timing, does it make that performance less "human"?

I understand your point, and I tend to agree. I HATE auto-tune. That said, beat adjustment has been around for a very long, and likely occurred on some of your favorite music. It's just a lot easier to do in a digital format. Unfortunately, that ease of post-performance manipulation maybe allows some performers to lean on that crutch too much, rather than putting in the effort to improve their initial performance.
