First off, let me say I hope everyone that was in the earthquake zone is ok. My sister is about two hours away from L.A. and she called me at 11: 30 her time to tell me she experienced her first quake. She has only been in CA for six years and all the noticeable quakes in her area have been during the night and she slept through them. She was excited and not really scared.
That being said, the reason for today's post is music. My hubby got a really good CD today and I really like it a lot. The band is Dr. Dog out of West Philadelphia and it has a very retro feel and sound to it. Check them out when you can.
On a local note, we went to a small restaurant this evening and had a couple of sodas (after I was able to hoist my short little body up on a gigantic bar stool) and listened to a set of the band, Acoustic Endeavors. They were really good, if fact, I think I liked them more than the hubby. He likes a truer bluegrass sound, and this is almost a "newgrass" sound. Since this was a non-smoking establishment, I was doubly happy.
One other thing, for years I wore drugstore "readers" and now I wear "progressive" bi-focals. I have a somewhat difficult time finding the area to look out of that isn't blurry. I have been dealing with this for well over a year now. Is this just the way it is, or are my glasses not made correctly? I am extremely farsighted, so much that when I take them off to see if the blurriness is caused by a smudge, I can't see well enough to know. I am thinking about going with Executive Bifocals this time, the line shows, but I've been told the area of viewing is much better. Come on bloggy buddies, let me know what you think. My eye appointment is Friday and I'd love your input.
Well, that's all for this evening, stay safe from storms and quakes and all the other stuff that is out there just waiting for us. We'll talk soon.
