Nice Music Tool For Rookies, Intermediates

So, thanks to the new transposition link I found, I also discovered, after a few days of struggle, that Waterbound, by Dirk Powell (ignore the post about the chords, I got that off the internet, and it's ALL wrong. Song's in c#, NOT f#, and the f# changes are all wrong, to boot), is not playable by me on reso, due to the jump from A to f#.

I'll find something else to annoy people with, no worries there.

So, that link, nice tool for transposing songs and such.

Course, most of you pro's in here are FAR past that kinda stuff. Still, if you teach, this is a GREAT tool for students.

See most of yas on the mountain soon.

I bet the NRA would like this one too!

Predators in Kansas?

So I wake up this morning agreeing with Kissinger

"...He (Kissinger) said Mr. Bush had only a few things to accomplish: train a real Iraqi Army that includes all religious and ethnic groups, make the Shiites stop hating the Sunnis and the Kurds stop hating everyone, and keep the Iranians from creating a theocratic dictatorship in Iraq. Oh, yeah, and a couple of other teensy little things: our troops have to defeat the vicious Iraq insurgency, and Mr. Bush needs to keep domestic support for the war." -- Maureen Dowd

Satchel And Catfish 1965-Legends


Wow. What a pic, two of MY A's favs!

Satchel Paige last pitched in The Show for Clevend in the late 40's, I think, maybe early 50's. Came back two decades later to pitch in a few games.

Bob Feller was awesome, at 100mph. They say, Satch was faster, lots faster, in his prime. 'Don't Look Back' is a great young boy's baseball book, and a must read.

Dog Days Of August are here. The Rocket Clemons for Cy Young again. That wows me.

Hold yer puck, it's early, still.

Just a tip...

From Tom in Flooooda

Two Middle Eastern mothers are sitting in the café chatting over a pint ofgoat's milk. The older of the moms pulls out her bag and starts flipping through pictures and reminiscing. . ."This is my oldest son, Mohammed. He would be 24 now." The other mom replies, "I remember him as a baby."Mom says, "He's a martyr now.""Oh, so sad, my dear."Mom flips to another picture. "And this is my second son, Kali. Hewould be 21.""Oh I remember him. He had such curly hair when he was born."Mom sighs, "He's a martyr, too.""Oh gracious me" says the second mother."And this is my third son. My beautiful Ahmed. He would be 18" Momwhispers."Yes" says her friend enthusiastically, "I remember when he firststarted school.""He's a martyr also" Mom says, with tears in her eyes.After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfullyat the photos and says:"They blow up so fast, don't they?"
