Some of you already know... I'm in the middle of building a Music Production Studio.

The past week I was working on the Keys. Going back and forth trying get various MIDI and Synth sounds.

Also... Been playing around with lighting effects.

goal is having the studio completed by Jan 1, 2020. I sure hope so.

In January I'll be posting a weekly blog titled "In The Studio"
Networking with Musicians and Techies..
Along with anyone else that seems interested.

Hope everyone is doing well....

Today on the Atlantic City boardwalk by Caesars Casino I struck up a conversation with a from Washington, DC.
I mentioned on how I lived just outside of DC for 27 years in Northern VA (Fairfax County). I explained why this was my favorite place I ever lived except for the traffic.

Loving History, The DC area has so much to offer.

We started talking about the Christmas holiday, and that's when I mentioned my favorite Christmas song is "Christmas Eve In Washington" by Maura Sullivan. The song was never a big . But the song has so much meaning me.

I'm sure we all have our favorite holiday song... What's yours?

Just A Thought...

Okay - while having my morning coffee a zillion things cross my mind.

This morning was no different.

But this idea kept coming and going today.

Wondering if there's any interest in a friendly (nonsexual) get together?

I would highly recommend you bring a friend or friends so each and every person would be comfortable.

No - This would not be at my home. This can take place at a casino or Hotel/Motel beach block.

I'm thinking mid to late Spring.

If there's interest we can all plan it ...

Your thoughts???

Every so often I check the Magazine Section on TSDates.

Outside of doing blogs this is the other section I check on TSDates.

Someone asked a question about Web Cam choices.

So I responded it would be a good idea check the Sony PMW-F55 4K Live Pkg.
Wondering if he looked into it?

That's it...

Have a great night!

The Atlantic Ocean is...

The waves seem to be crashing much louder than normal today and they're not real big.

Must be something in the water.

The photos make it appear that it's a beautiful day.
It is in a way.

But still cold and windy on the beach.

Have a great day...

If you're around age chances are good you grew up with the B&W Television.

Things I remember about them

Turn it on and the picture would appear in a few moments.
Guess the tubes had warm up (who knows).

Turn it off and the picture would go a .

They were so heavy move.

Hated when the picture would just roll.
Picture had what they called (a snowy picture)

Seemed each home on street had only one TV.

Our family would sit around and watch the show.
(Never liked the Lawrence Welk show but had watch it)...
Now I find myself going the internet and checking Lawrence Welk

Fond memories...
Thoughts have smile.

Have a great day!

I lived in the Northern VA / DC area for 27 years.
This morning I came back home from a Thanksgiving visit.

On the way down I hit major traffic.
95 South between Baltimore and DC (very slow)

Route 495 (The DC beltway) Traffic everyday!

I changed all that by moving to the Jersey Shore.
Looking out back not a car in sight.

Have a great day!

Okay - Now back home from the Thanksgiving holiday weekend that I spent in Northern VA. Good be back at the NJ Shore.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and in good health.

***************************************************

I spent my first 20 plus of working in various Recording Studios in NJ, NYC and the DC area.

Now at 61, I think myself what keeps feeling young?

It's MUSIC - So I decided build a mini studio just for my enjoyment.

The past few weeks I started buying equipment.

1) Yamaha Digital Grand

2) M-Audio MIDI

3) Fender Twin Reverb Amp

4) 1960's reissue Standard Gibson Les Paul.

it's going be a fun wee..

Yes - I will do a beach blog later this morning.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Tomorrow morning at about 4am I'll be leaving the Jersey Shore...
Driving South on Rt 95 (with a zillion other folks).

Spending Thanksgiving with family in Arlington, VA.

The airports and roads will be jammed today.

Will you be staying home or traveling?

I so love this time of the year...
Being with family... But also thinking about close friends or family that I lost over the past couple of years

Enjoy your day...

I'll do one more post this evening.

Have a great day!

Looking back it's cute now.
Wasn't than...

I moved to the Jersey Shore back in 2011.
Really not knowing my neighborhood (local streets).

At the time -I could never figure out why no one parked in this close space next to a telephone pole... so I parked there.

Talking about needing a car wash.
Those darn seagulls.
