35mph winds, gusting to 50.  Lost power for a few hours, had to run the generator.  Back now, but don't know for how long.  Freezing rain/snow/sleet.  Not a nice day...

Me too RJ, I brew my own beer and distill spirits (making a really fine bourbon these days) and have just started wine making. My peach wine is a peach, as  we wine makers say, very drinkable, with a hint of peach. Can't remember tho last time I was drunk,  not because I was drunk, just too long ago

I'm an avid homebrewer with a few beers on tap at all times.  Having said that, I hate even feeling tipsy let alone drunk.  So I'm like Whitestrat in that I may have 1 or 2 over the course of an evening but that's it.

Never been much of a drinker. I don't abstain, but 1 or 2 drinks, over a couple of hours, is more than enough for me....
You might be right, neil....  :P

Alcohol is so very "college" for me.  I drank a lot of it back in college.  Didn't drink any in HS. After graduate school, it became sort of ho-hum.  Now, occasionally I'll have a beer at a restaurant with dinner. I don't even keep them at the house.  Now, Diet Coke on the other hand...

Used to drink soda (pop) a long time back, but got so I didn't care for anything carbonated.  I do miss a good Root Beer once in a while - with ice cream...

Been 17 years alcohol free here, and my bev of choice is pop....WAY too much pop! :P 8)

Yeah, but I gave up alcohol back in the early '70's.  Been coffee ever since.  4-5 cups an hour when I'm home, 2-3 an hour when I'm out working.  Every place I work knows they get a better deal if they keep coffee handy...

Because Neil asked for it...
« on: October 03, 2017, 07:45:32 PM »
Well, Neil, turned out to be a busy day, but I finally grabbed a minute for this.  I have no idea where I should have gone from that shoutbox beginning, but this is what my fingers did.  I'm not claiming it's good or usable.  Use it, use parts of it, use it as a starting point, or just pretend you didn't see it...  :-*


Well it’s 2017 and I’m watching the screen
But the news blows me away
Arguing, fighting, talkin’ bout war
And it gets worse every day

I see people protesting
And the cops arresting
Everybody who doesn’t comply
Things have gone from good
To bad to worse
In the twinkling of an eye

Now they say there's no such thing as fake news
And no such thing as lies
That everything now is alternative facts
But it's time you realize

That watching the news
I can only conclude
The world we know
.........is screwed

Left or right it doesn’t really matter
Why can’t we just agree
We should do the right thing
Instead of always getting caught
Between the devil and the deep blue sea

It seems to me that it should be so easy
For us all to just get along
Because in the end, and this is just my opnion
For whatever that might be worth
You and me and everybody else
Are all just citizens
..........of the planet Earth

Just came from a little thing I did in the shoutbox, Ag, and Neil said it should be a song.  So I spent a full 3-4 minutes on it.  And it shows.  (-!)

Basically, it's not for anything.  Just kicks and grins...  ;)

Nicely done Joom!
I can't decide between an AcDc, Motörhead, Metallica/Maiden/Priest/Hawkwind or Sabbath style toon.... lol
I'll mess around till something sticks like usual I guess lol
Unless you had a feeling in mind when you scribbled it  ;D

Ags,  get that Epi LP fired up.....you're doing kick ass solos on this.....
It's either that or drums  :P

If I had to pick, Neil, it would be either an AcDc or Sabbath style.  But I learned a long time ago that great things can come from different ideas...

Hmmm, Sabbath huh?
I kinda like that idea.....

If we're gonna go that route then we definitely need to rope in the @Smurf for the drums.....

I like that, Neil.  Just enough of a dirty/gritty/aggressive feel to it that a song like this needs.

Can't wait to hear the vocal match to the tune...
