Gatlinburg Fires

If you look at the banner picture at the top of this blog, you will see a beautiful mountain scenery. This picture was taken at a vacation home that overlooked Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort.  This part of the country is one of my favorite places. I always feel renewed when visiting there. This weeks fires have been devastating to this area. Authorities are calling it one of the worst fires in 100 years. I have no idea about the fate of the home in which this picture was taken. My heart breaks for the people of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. I know they will rebuild. And I look forward to visiting again soon. However, right now I am praying for the safety of all people involved.

Cubs Win World Series - 2016

I never thought this day would happen. Not only did the Cubs make it to the World Series, but they WON! Down 3 games to 1 in the series, they won 3 games in a row. The last game being one of the most exciting in World Series history. As a life long Cubs fan, I am so happy.

Band Tool

Every so often a great product is invented. My friend Steve Allen has done so through his business Legend Musical Instruments. They have created a repair tool that all band directors should have. This multi-tool is small enough to carry, but contains enough different tools to be effective at marching or concert band contests and concerts. This tool will fix every thing from a sprung woodwind spring to a stuck brass mouthpiece. To see all the great features of this band tool watch the Youtube video below.

Legend Musical Instruments has developed a great product in the Band Tool, they also make great beginner brass mouthpieces.

Walrus - Jupiter Fuzz Pedal

One of the fun things about owning a music store is getting to try out all the cool gear. The Walrus Audio Jupiter Fuzz pedal is no exception. The Jupiter offer gritty, thick, and of course loud fuzz sounds. I love being able to get a guitar sound that just fills the room. It even offers the ability to play chords and not break apart. You will love the groves you can create with this pedal. Check out Walrus Audio's Jupiter Fuzz.

Love that my church is having this series.
We all live in a world of "right now".
Last year I began a journey to change my fitness.
This year I will continue that, and reset my mind.
Contentment, Joy, Leadership, Organizational.
Love, Family, Friends.
Work, Business, Success.
Trying to define goals and dreams for all of these.
Praying for clarity.
Praying for peace of mind.
Praying for things greater than me.
