Best Music of 2010

•December 6, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Not everyone likes the same thing in music, which is good. It gives us a variety and something new to discover. The pop music scene passed me by years ago, but I am still able to find new releases that I like. You will find my taste ranges from Blues, Soul and Classic Rock. The top choice from Trombone Shorty might be classified as Jazz, but all I know is that it is fresh and exciting. There is something for everybody here. Take a chance and give one a listen that you think is interesting.

Black Friday deals: St. Pete family is first in nation to start camping at Best Buy.

Talk about getting an early start. I’m not sure it is worth the iPad they got.

Congratulations Giants!

Yes, I am an A’s fan, but growing up in the Bay Area, I have gone to my fair share of Giants games and am not a hater. The only time I ever rooted against them was the World Series in 1989. I am glad to see this version of the team win it all. They are refreshing after the Bonds years and have finally gotten the monkey off of their collective backs. They played as a team and deserve this.

Now with that said, I can’t wait until next year.

Go A’s

If you look to the right column, you will see my new addition, Tweets! I will save longer posts for this forum, but as I see news snippets or want to share a song I am listening to, you will find these in the new Twitter section.

Raiders legend George Blanda dies at 83

Raiders legend George Blanda dies at 83.

Legend does not begin to explain what George meant to professional football. I have many fond memories of him, later in his career, pulling out games with his arm and foot in the final minutes. He seemed like an old guy then showing the youngsters how to do it when everything was on the line.

God Bless his family and friends during this difficult time.

Stephen Colbert Testifies Before Congress on “Vast Experience” as a Migrant Laborer.

I think Congress can make better use of their time and our money than providing a forum and free publicity for a comedian.

So does this mean that Moses was an early meteorologist?
