How do you like that blast of winter? Are you dressed for the weather?
You know, every year I'm a bigger baby about the cold weather than the previous year. But truth be told, it's the dark this time of year that is the worst. I get home and it's pitch black outside. All I want to do is eat dinner and then crawl into bed.
But you know what they're doing in Florida?
Yup, they're getting baptized. I'm serious - take a look at that banner. People getting dunked and soaked. I don't know about all that, but I think it's kind of fun to watch it. At least from a distance.
You know what else they're doing in Florida? Yes, checking out the warm sunshine, the blue ocean and the green tropical foliage.
Not to fret, all is not lost here in Pennsylvania. No sir, we have cool stuff, too, like the Lehigh River up by Jim Thorpe. It's pretty darn nice and as soon as you set foot on a path, about 90% of the other people around you disappear. It's the oddest thing. Mind you, the same reduction in force doesn't happen if there is lunch being served, but if you're willing to hike a bit, you'll enjoy nature and pretty much have it to yourself.
Do you like this? If not, and you're beginning to talk behind my back, that's not so good. They make dish towels that tell you why, and they're pretty funny, too. What am I talking about? Take a look:
Yes, of course that is being sold south of the Mason-Dixon line, where else? The world is going to the dogs, that's for sure. And if you like your canines, I have just the place to take them. And if they're a touch overweight, I have that covered, too.
Here's a weird thing. I went to NYC recently. I had never been to the Guggenheim and wanted to see it. The building is fantastic - Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius. A scoundrel, too, but here's a guy that never went to college who becomes the most famous and influential architect of the 20th Century. Take that, Harvard!
The building itself is amazing and worth visiting. The art inside? I like art. I didn't care for what was hanging on the walls there. But the building! Well worth the visit.
Clowns kind of freak me out. I remember going to the circus as a kid (my dad loved the circus and we went every year). From a distance, the clowns are sort of cool, but when they get close, you realize that their costumes are dirty and smell, and that the people under that grease paint are freaky. Someone in my office brought this thing in, and it gave me the heebie-jeebies:
Alright, I've got to split. I know what you're thinking: thank you for all I've done. Yeah, haha, something like that. How about this:
My name is Bill, and I live in the greater Philadelphia area. I love music, and I have a lot of opinions. This site is primarily focused on music, but sometimes I get off track. I hope you enjoy.
