community service

Today I spent 2 hours at St Pauls Church in Bay Head.I didn't move mountain but thats ok.The day Started out wiping down chairs with a Clorox wipes.then I unrapped some new Testament books from the plastic wraps they were in.after they were all unwrapped I put then back in the box they came in and put the box on the back pew.Finally after folks were done eating I cleaned off the tables. It felt good doing some community service.I felt not only was a helping the community but also doing a little work for God. later in the afternoon Nancy took me to the Doctor. my BP was good but he said I needed to lose weight.

bird on the line!

community service

Today I Deejayed for a great bunch of folks at Public works.I felt good to gift of the spirits of folks who are working hard to help those who need it. Im seriosly thinking of going there tomorrow to lend a hand myself.I still consider Bay Head my home town being I spent 30 years of my life there and most of my friends are there.I want to give back to the town that has been so great to me.Not because I have to but because I want to!Call it being led but the Lord if you will!I have some time off from the school but I don't want to sit on my butt and be lazy I want to help out in some way.

new Christmas mixes going out!

Yes Folks its that time again when I start sending and handing out Christmas mixes. Here are some questions folks asks me Q:Isnt that expensive? Well sure I do spare more on postage this time oh yeah but when there a happy person at the receiving end Its all worth it! Q:How do you pick the tunes? Sometimes I have a playlist in my head and other times its just picking and choosing. Q:do You Always have a theme?No not really there's only a few times where I have themes.Themes limit your creative juices.Its like being on a short leash.Of course there are time folks will say only mellow stuff or say stuff like don't include this artist or Genre and if Im making a custom mix I pretty much stick to what they want! I love when my mixes turn folks on to new artist or genres My Christmas mixes are my fave theme to work with. Oh yes Ill post my Christmas mix playlist some time this week!

This CD is great to calm the soul and relaxing the mind.While I was at the nation Aquarium in Baltimore I heard this CD in the background.While it was a fun day I had my friends and family in N.J in the back of my mind.The music in the gift shop somehow took my worries away.I had to get this music. I ask the sales clerk if the had it and she told me where it was.almost $20.00 with tax but I didn't mind.its just what the doctor ordered!

the calm before the next storm

Yesterday I wok up and it was snowing..This weather is nuts.So today Im just walking to the local 7-11 for tea and milk. on a music related note while my internet and cable and phone were down I listened to some old mixes on cassette.the only tape player that works is the one downstairs.dayam!Id like to take a hammer to my 20 year old portable dual tape deck for dying on me.grr! thinking of a new mix for November.title title come to me! Im also working on a Christmas mix!Being theres snow on the ground I feel OK about sending some CDs out!

oh Sandy

Hurricane Sandy really know how to pack a punch!shes a home wrecker alright!Lucky for us we had minor damages to the house but my car was flooded out. Bay Head,Mantoloking and other towns south of us were really hit hard.most area schools were also hith with massive flooding. This Past weekend Nancy,the kids and I went to Baltimore and met up with Donna Mullins and her Daughter. I havent been Many places but Baltimore is a nice City! We went to the National Aquarium,Barnes and Noble and The Hard Rock Cafe!We stayed at a beatiful Hotel and had room service for breakfast. We arrived home at 3pm Sunday afternoon.The front of almost every house had items that were ruined by the flood in black plastic bags.There was also furniture. Phone and cable service was restored tonight. I hear we are getting another storm but not as bad as sandy.ugh I hope we don't get anything like that for another 50 years!
