I've been to San Antonio a few times this year, so far. Once for business, once for the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) convention. Not that I'm a music educator. I happen to have a kid that is an all state musician. While Austin may be where we keep our hippies and musicians, San Antonio … Continue reading San Antonio, Texas. Worth seeing, but not worth going to see.
Has it been that long? I've really slacked off in the last year. I completely missed this trip, figuring out that I overlooked it when dumping pictures off my cell phone.

Lets get the logistics out of the way first. Since I now book through the corporate travel agency, I have little … Continue reading San Bruno. Why bother?
Marketing, in general irritates me. But I positively can't stand telemarketers. Many types of Marketing I view as innocuous. Sure, When I browse to a site to look over an item, my browser will now show ads for that site, or item. Big deal. More of a reminder to me really. I'm in the Scott … Continue reading A marketing rant…

My job has changed somewhat. More management duties. More duties altogether. The transition has up-heaved my live gigs somewhat so I've done little traveling lately.
