Welcome to the Record Gallery

Okay, here's my new blog section topic and how it came about.  Some weeks ago my coworkers were rambling on about the song "Hair Of The Dog".  I interjected not only the song name because they didn't know it, but also that it's the title track from the Nazareth album circa 1975.  I happen to have a collection of several hundred vinyl records which I rarely use.  Some of my favorite ones I've transferred to CD for convenience, but they're just sitting around begging for attention.  Hair Of The Dog happens to be one of them.  I said I'd bring it in.

All previous entries are now here.  Read more…

The Detroit Project

OK, so I caught a brief blurb a couple of days ago on the news about some group linking SUV's to terrorism. I found it amusing because what the heck, everything that wants action or funding gets linked to terrorism and national security in these post 9/11 days. I think most of that is complete crap, but that is another story. So last night on Fox News I saw Arianna Huffington talking about something called The Detroit Project.   Read more…
