Christmas Favorites … 1

3 Dec

I like Christmas and I love Christmas Carols.
Christmas – like most things – is what you make it. 
But this wonderful music already exists. 
So I play it. 

My lady Rose turned me on to this wonderful version of
my favorite Christmas Carol, Silent Night. 

If you haven’t heard it already, I hope you enjoy.

What’s going on with WordPress ???

14 Nov

You must have noticed I’ve been doing a lot of editing … and re-Posting on my Posts recently.

This is because some strange things are going with my Blog.

The first thing that started to go wrong was that any time I posted a clip from You Tube it often didn’t appear on the the Post. It was fine in the Preview, but screwed somehow up in the Posting. And each I tried to fix it, it wouldn’t fix. But I couldn’t tell that until I Posted. Very aggravating.

The other thing was line spacing. It sometimes added extra spacing or none at all. It didn’t look very good. And I care about how my Posts look.

These a couple of other ongoing issues have required me to keep Editing and Posting until things come out correctly.

Of course, I also sometimes make mistakes – typos and such – which I am inclined to correct. But not the extent that I’ve been having to do lately.

I don’t know if the video issue a You Tube fault or a WordPress fault??? I just know it never happened before.

I hope it clears up by itself because it’s a mystery down here.

Soooo … just so you know. Sorry.

the white album …

14 Nov
Birthday
In the early 60’s two scruffy kids from Liverpool named John Lennon and Paul McCartney
formed a skiffle group/band and started banging out some tunes.
Though they surely had some dreams, I highly doubt they had any idea they would soon be at the vanguard of a
Renaissance Era that literally exploded into an immense wave of change
that swept around the planet and forever changed things.
So … on November 22, 1968 the Beatles released the White Album. This is it’s 50th Anniversary.
It followed Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Magical Mystery Tour
and is possibly their most perplexing album.
There must have been tremendous pressure on these guys to continuously produce something
that measured up to – or surpassed – their previous work.
And we all waited very impatiently for whatever they were going to do next.
Yet I didn’t buy The White Album. I was probably broke at the time.
I was saving every nickel to go to Art College.

Anyway … I really was perplexed by the White Album. As many were. It was large … and so different.
It wasn’t what anybody expected. Not that there wasn’t a lot of good music on there.
There was. But some was forgettable too.

I still don’t own it today, but I can get any tune from it that I want for free via YouTube.

Sometimes my guitar gently weeps … but I’m still doing pretty good.
