A new day dawning and the world has received a few wrinkles here and there. Ike with his fierce winds and fellow friend Neptune has tortured the Houston/Galveston area and far beyond those borders. I keep finding new names in the music world some I know and some I don't. iTune gives me the option to find, listen and buy. It's a great tool that both my iPod and I can relate to. Today, being a Saturday, it is no difference than if it was a Tuesday or Thursday; since I retired earlier this year to distinguish a week day (or working day) with a Saturday/Sunday is almost nil. To me every day is a Saturday! Some times it can get a little boring if I was truly to think of every day as a Saturday.
My blog is not 100 % up to snuff, yet, as I'm learning there is so many things that can be added to enhance the settings, layout, and etc. You'd think that I should have all the time in the world to spend on this site, being retired and all. But let me tell you, the day isn't long enough for me to fulfill all the other "stuff" that I do. My exercise classes (5 times) a week gives me the run for the money...but it's worth it as I feel great and have lost some (with age) flab as it was...
Like I said, time has a way of running...and so, this is it for now.

The beginning of a Blogger

Being a novice in anything is trial and error but with the Internet world it can get pretty scary for newbies like me. I thought it could be a fun and informative venue to learn from, to add to one's own experience and knowledge. As well as to give to others what I may have to offer.
Any one who would like to take a "chance on me," words borrowed from one of the songs in the movie "Mama Mia," are welcome to chat away with me. Any topic to start with and let it fall where it may...
As we all know, the media frenzie for the posturing presidential candidates can and is a little more sometime than what is really needed. It has gotten to the point I don't want to hear about it anymore. So, unless there are valid and good commentaries to this effect I will try to refrain from touching on the subject. There are so many other matters and topics more easier to discuss or chat about.
