It’s down right awesome to see the Rolling Stones flying their own jet to Cuba to do a free concert. For many years their music was not allowed to be played on Cuban radio stations. People in Cuba listened to the Stones and traded their albums in secret.


It’s hard to believe these guys are rocking like they do after all these years. I remember Mick saying years ago the Stone’s would make albums and play live until the day they died. I’m beginning to believe this may be true. Still rockin’ and still having fun.


I have a nice bass guitar and amp. and an acoustic but needed to get a nice acoustic with good play ability and sound. The acoustic I had was an old Kay which plays not too bad but the sound just is not there. When I bought it about 10 years ago it was being use as a slide guitar and that is probably what I will do with it again.

profile_guitarThe guitar is a Profile PW-07. They were originally made in Australia and sold in Canada. This one is made in Korea. It’s like new condition. I took it to Wentworth Music in Kelowna and they did setup service on it and it is even easier to play now. The was adjusted, frets polished, fretboard oiled and buffed, and other stuff to give it a full tune up. They even vacuumed out the bag

It’s nice to play with the close action and sounds very good. If you strum it and stop the sound carries for some time. I now need to get my fingers back in shape since I haven’t played for some time.


This is the website I just completed for my sister, Diana Wright, in Nanaimo, BC. She owns and runs a professional website where kids have fun, work together, and learn. Have a look at the site and contact Diana if you live in Nanaimo area and you are looking for the best daycare in the area.


There will a WordPress Blog soon where postings may be made by parents and others.

I got this early Christmas present from Dayle, a friend of mine. It’s awesome since it goes with the blue/silver theme we have for Christmas. Thanks Dayle.


I’ve been busy working on website and graphic design. I designed this site for a woman in Alberta who is a farrier and a gold certified trainer under the coaching of Chris Irwin.



corona_tree My wife Andrea’s brother put some Corona bottles neck down in the soil in our garden last Spring. We didn’t see them until after he left town. When Andrea asked him why he did it he said,” I’m hoping it will grow beer plants.” Well, it did. Her brother and wife will be in town today so they can help with the harvest.

corona_tree_3We’ll plant more next year.

Smoke doesn’t bother me much but the smoke in the Okanagan Valley the last couple days has. My throat is a bit sore. Less energy too.

It’s smoke to the ground, inside and out in Kelowna. Sensitive people must leave the valley.
