Halloween 2008

The big man will be hangin' as a Pumpkin on his first Halloween. He'll be helping Mom and Dad hand out candy to all the kids. He smiles now, but could you imagine trying to get him into a costume like this when he's older ?

River's First Thanks Giving

The big man is almost 4 months and enjoyed his first thanksgiving at his Grandma and Grandpa's. And judging by his attire, I think he'll be voting NDP today ( or did smilin' Jack kick the pot guys out of the NDP ?? Robin, can you update me ? )

Saturday Satriani Concert - Or, how I learned to re-love the shred

Yes indeed. I'm off to Edmonton tomorrow to see Joe Satriani ( the Calgary Show was sold out ). For those of you who have no idea who he is, he is a guitar god from the late 80's. He was my guitar idol along with Steve Via and Vivian Campbell ( I would play for hours to his first few albums ). I saw him a couple years back in Vegas at the house of blues and he hasn't lost his chops. Surfin with the Alien & Satch Boogie still send shivers up my spine ( and as long as he doesn't bust out the vocals and play the crap from his later CD's, everything is right in the world ). If you're interested check him out at
