Breakfast for Dinner

We had breakfast for dinner last night at the area IHOP.  It was a pleasant winter’s walk from the downtown square – the kind that makes a warm restaurant all the more enjoyable!  I had their new meal, the BIG Country-Fried Steak and Eggs dinner, which included a huge slab…Continue Reading

Beating the Goat at Midnight

I call it Thunderhead, though I have yet to unleash upon it to confirm its namesake. It was midnight this Sunday morning when I finally got to beat the old goat skin into the night air. I played some variations on Saidi and Masmoudi to get a feel for the resonance and response on this new drum.

The documentation on this subject is actually quite lengthy; I had to follow a couple of citations to other fascinating topics regarding in vitro fertilization and other…Continue Reading

Dan Zanes Concert

Saturday was our big day for the Dan Zanes concert followed by yummy food at the Varsity in Atlanta. Hard to top that! Balthazar didn’t get quite as much out of the concert as we had hoped; he was tired and hungry. But he did get to hear his favorite…Continue Reading
