a photo good enough to go in a science book?

Yesterday morning I woke up at 4am to natures call. The moon was shining right in my face.
When I got back in bed I thought "wheres my camera?"
 I took this photos from my bedroom window!
Today I received many nice comments on facebook and a retired teacher told me it could be in a science book
THAT made my day!

Shore Thing 2016

 A new CD purchase always inspired a new mix!

There's some classic Rock on here, a splash of world music and a spoonful of soul sprinkles with weird obscure stuff and wella there's a new mix.
There beatles and classic rock tracks were inspired by a few folks on the youtube vinyl community.
 There's also a little country on here too!

Mid Febuary music additions

about 2 weeks ago I went to one of my fave online musite stores to check out if they had anything new and indeed they did.
there's lots of weird and obscure tunes here to tickle your funny bone.
Your can't here these songs on the radio today because most radio stations won't play them.
 There are a few that were hits back in the day though and perhaps a few may make it on to future mixes.

Last week My Godmother Mary and cousin Molly came by for a chat and to give me some late birthday presents. this was one of them
As most of you know I'm into world music and have a nice collection. this is a nice addition!

Rocking the Eclectic

Mondays gig at the Brick VFW was fun,
 no one dance but no one complained about the loudness of the music either, I think everyone was there to have fun and was out for a good time,
I did see a few tapping toes a moving hips and that's what's music is supposed to do. right? Right!
 After the gig Chip and I went to get a beer and I treated!
 OK staying on the music tip
I also have a playlists of mixes you might enjoy

Love songs 2016 is a Valentines day or even Anniversary mix.
A banana and One Meanbell are based on 2 songs. Guess which ones.

mid Fabuary Random blog

this ceramic frag is one of the few things that survived 3 moves. I've had him since I was 10 years old. The other thing is the virgin Mary statue that is on my wall.
 As I type this blog the frigid north wind is blowing and a have cold toes.
This past summer I didn't renew my IMP membership. I got involved making videos and photography but around this time of year I start to mix the mix exchange and so last month I renewed my membership. what is IMP you ask?
 I welcome you to check it out at

I also have a new video up at

I'm so looking forward to spring. I have ideas for new videos but old man winter is holding on.
Early Spring? how early are we talking about Mr Groundhog or are you wrong?

Tomorrow after a month Vacation Mueller's Bakers will be reopening. Yay! I hope to bring some video footage of my trip there.
I'm working on a few CD mix project. currently I'm focusing on a valentines mix requested by my boss.
A trip to the Post office and Mueller's bakery are on the calendar for tomorrow.
Stay tunes as mixes and other news to be posted in the coming days!
Peace, Love and music

Random Febuary Chatter

Last night I was looking at a small wooden CD holder that hold most of my early CD mixes.1 or 2 of the CDs were missing and I hope to find them because there were some nice mixes in the early days. Not that todays aren't good but those early mixes are all over the place. I don't know where I got most of those songs. Most likely from the library. It was fun going down memory lane.
  This Morning I woke up at 9:55am. Pretty early for me on a Saturday unless I have something to do.
     I check my email and posted on facebook that I was going to a local Breakfast/Lunch place called Klotz's Kitchen and would anyone like to meet me there. NO Reply. zilch, zero!
Perhaps folks were in shock that I was up so early on a Saturday. Perhaps everyone else was still sleeping!
I saw a post by The Brick Rotary and posted to volunteer my DJ services if they were ever in need of one for fundraisers and I got a response from someone says they would be in touch.
 In pasts years I tried to get in touch with both the Beach and Boro rotarys and nothing! Hmm what does that say?
 So I took another walk today and it felt good. If I wake up early again tomorrow perhaps a trip to Vesuvios in in the plans. I like they're subs. I really like they're tuna fish subs.
 OK so back to music. I'm waiting to get a CD I ordered in the mail and then I can start on my next mix.
I finally got a tripod for my camera, I actually got 2 because I didn't think the first order went through. I'd would like to get back to bike riding videos. I'll see which one worked best and sell the other but might keep them both one for the desk and one for travels. one of them is thinner so it might be the one for my bike riding videos.
I know January and Febuary are the coldest months of the year but I do miss my bikerides and really am look forward to getting my pony aka bike back on the road again.

Geting back to it

I started doing it in the 80s to fight the battle of the bulge.
It helped me physically and mentally. Yes I'm talking about walking
I also started making mixtapes to motivate me to keep walking.
Yesterday I decided to get back to it and not only is it good for you healthwise but mentally as well.
 I often am able to clear my mind of  cobwebs as I breath in the fresh air. Any and all feelings of stress go down too.
I got to find my earphones listen to my ipod or cd Walkman. year I still have my CD Walkman floating about.
Actually my CD player would be better so I can listen to mixes other than my own.
Taking walks and listening to music is a perfect combination.
Walking without music is OK too but with music I can listen to the music and I power through any cramps of soreness I'm feeling in my legs. Oh but don't expect me to listen to the Rocky theme or eye of the tiger on repeat. They are good motivation songs but there's only so much I can take.
If you feel worried or anxious about something a good long walks helps relieve that too!
So Get Walking!
