    Thanks guys. I mentioned an up coming gig I have. It normally would take about 26 minutes to make the drive. Here's a pic of the route now. With all the traffic that will be on these roads, and they're narrow back roads for the first half of the trip, it will be much longer driving time.

    Go St.Louis Blues is right. Game 5 in the Stanley Cup final. This is the best thing going in this area.

    The Blues need to finally win the cup almost as much as their fans need them to!

    It's not even a paying gig. it's my drumming cousins 25th annual hog roast. I'll be using his kit...if I make the drive.

    It was to be his band and my " band" . I talked to him today and he already booked a replacement band for mine. So if we do play it would be a shortened set.

    Honestly- it doesn’t sound worth it. I know “The show must go on” and all that but...

    Happy 75th anniversary of D-Day, gang.

    I've been a WWII history fanatic since I was in junior high and I read WWII history regularly.

    As I was walking my dogs after work last night, I couldn't help but think that exactly 75 years before that very moment then-Lieutenant Dick Winters and the rest of Easy Company were departing Upottery, and as that timeline continued, by the time my wife and I were eating dinner they had jumped into Normandy and were among the first to attack the Atlantic Wall. As I was getting into bed I couldn't stop thinking that by that time, exactly 75 years before, dawn was breaking and the landing craft were approaching the beaches where thousands of men would face their death.

    It never fails to give me chills.

    It's been interesting to read articles on the German perspective of D-Day commemorations and how it has evolved in the decades after the end of WWII. It's a bit of a unique and complex situation considering modern Germany is now closely allied with the four nations commemorating the beginning of its defeat 75 years ago. The general national sentiment is that D-Day is the beginning of the Allies' liberation of the Germans from fascism, rather than the beginning of their defeat in battle, and I think that's about the best outlook that a nation in that position could have. The fact that an invitation is extended to (and accepted by) Germany's leader to take part in the commemorations would suggest the nations who undertook the military operation seem to agree with that outlook.
