  1. Today I’m gonna be goin’ back over the transcription of some music I’m composing and trying to figure out why it doesn’t seem quite right.

    After hours already spent transcribing and composing, I might get sick of it pretty soon…

  2. MsJoane, some silly ol’ rock song.

    I fixed the problem and am making progress. It’s a good morning indeed.


  3. I plan to watch Arsenal v Manchester United in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final and then go watch SammytheTurtle play softball…. I might do some work too today… maybe.

  4. MJ, it’s somewhat in the style of Dutch gothic metal band Within Temptation, or early Evanescence ( the _Fallen_ album). My brother is a bass player who’s been trying get me back into playing the last 2 or 3 years. A house fire in 1994 ate all my guitars and that kinda took the heart out of me, but I’ve been coming around.

    Just having fun.

  5. AWESOME! I loves me some Evanescence! Do you share your stuff anywhere?

    What am I doing? I am about to start working – finally. Nothing but database problems all around. WOOT! (Ugh!)

  6. Today is a work day. Then it’s into the garden after work. Oh I will have the Champions League semi final on the flat box while I work.

    And some sad news: RIP Dom DeLuise

  7. So many great ones gone from Mel Brooks’ magic basket.

    Dom Deluise, Madeline Kahn, Cleavon Little, Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, Anne Bancroft, Marty Feldman, Peter Boyle…


  8. Happy Cinco de Mayo to all.

    A killer day at work and now a couple of cold Coronas and sit back and relax. Then check out the days insanity.

    • You’re welcome, Med. I’ve been enjoying your writing.

      I haven’t gotten in near the amount of trouble with margaritas as I should have. 😉

  9. That is one of the top two things a writer likes to hear. The other is I have this three book deal for megabucks, sign here. 😉

    Either you haven’t had the right amount of tequila or hang out in the wrong places. For me, tequila has been my nemesis. Doesn’t matter how much or where, trouble finds me way too easy.

  10. Buenos dias, Senor Bob.

    (can anybody tell me how to get the enye to work on a PC? I can get it all by itself ~, but can’t figure out how to have it show up over the ‘n’.)

  11. BnF,
    Like ‘ñ’?
    Hold down the ‘Alt’ key, type in ‘164’ from the numeric keyboard and then release the ‘Alt’ key.
    A complete list of ASCII and extended ASCII codes is here:
    You can also get an extended ASCII keyboard if you can afford it. I got mine for free from IBM when I was on assignment in Germany.
