finding limits (by getting sick on the road)

OK-  so I push too hard sometimes.  I get it.  Now I get it more than I got it before.  And I might need to get it again, although this was a tough lesson to take this time. It actually started in Athens, GA, where I decided to see if I could do bikram (hot)Continue reading “finding limits (by getting sick on the road)”

Cookies with Taiyo

It’s funny what will make me really miss my son all of a sudden.  I got to do an actual FaceTime video chat with him, Yuki and my parents today.  They’re all in Idaho together for the holidays, and I will be too soon enough!  Well, Boise, the nearest big city to Caldwell, where myContinue reading “Cookies with Taiyo”

Easy hotel room salad

Here’s an easy meal I threw together in my hotel room while staying at the Double Tree in Memphis. There are no fridges in the rooms, and our busses (which have fridges that conveintly stay on) went away, because we won’t be using them again until after the new year. So it was time toContinue reading “Easy hotel room salad”

Sun Studios, Memphis TN!

Today, a few of us from Blue Man went to Sun Studios. Famous for being the first studio to ever record Elvis. It’s a small place, kept very much in the original state it was in when those famous recordings were made. Same flooring, same ceiling, same control room. Pretty cool to see some RockContinue reading “Sun Studios, Memphis TN!”

I get almost 2 weeks off right at Christmas time, so I can’t wait to see them all up there! It’ll beContinue reading “My beautiful family!”

Arriving in a new city…

Arriving in a new city…   What time is it? Where’s the hotel?  How long are we staying here?  How many bags should I bring in?  What room am I in?  Where’s my room key?  Where are the elevators?  Is the bus going to stay here, or is it going away?  Here’s my room.  Where’sContinue reading “Arriving in a new city…”

Missing Athens…

Sometimes you get a good vibe the moment you set foot in a place. Athens was one of those places. Everyone fell in love with Athens, GA from the moment we showed up. What a cool town. It’s rather small, and the downtown is actually only a couple of blocks long, but its cram packedContinue reading “Missing Athens…”

Great food, wine and Salsa dancing!

Had a great time at Tapas 177 last night! I was so happy when we walked downstairs to find a live salsa band, and they were killin it! I’ve actually played in salsa bands before, and have listened to the music for years, so I know when it’s good, and these guys were the realContinue reading “Great food, wine and Salsa dancing!”
