My friend Zenne does a lot of wonderful things.  When she has a moment between her creative endeavours she makes her own dance/music videos.  This is one of my favorites.

Rambling, Random Thoughts

My full-time job is keeping me rather busy these day.  I come home dead tired and find I don't have any energy to turn on my laptop and edit a piece of writing I've been working on.  I am still journal writing so at least I'm doing something.

I don't splurge much these days - who can?  I did break down and buy a Kindle Fire.  The verdict is still out on it. I've read two books so far! It's not a bad gizmo and has been a nice thing to have while wandering around the house. It does come in handy when you're describing something to someone and they have no idea what you're talking about.  I can show a photo, a news story or share a piece of music. It sure beats firing up the laptop!

I'm actually thinking of buying one for my parents, both of whom do not own a computer but the Fire is simple to use.  I had my father who admittedly prefers DOS over Windows, play around with my Kindle for 30 minutes.  He didn't struggle with it at all once I showed him how it worked.  He has an easier time using the Kindle than the cell phone I bought him.

I have not had time to explore music which is something I enjoy as most of you know.  I have recently bought a CD by Sunstorm: Emotional Fire which is project of singer Joe Lynn Turner.

A friend thought I should give it a try.  Thankfully, the music reviews of Classic Rock and Metal Hammer magazine keep me updated.

Speaking of music, I hope that Dave Mustaine of Megadeth is doing okay after being allegedly hit by a rock at a music festival in Croatia. Reports are mixed on whether he was hit in the head or if he was hit in the left hand.   I sincerely hope he and the rest of the band are well.  What happened is unfortunate and I feel bad for the Megadeth fans who could not enjoy a full set of great music.

Take care-
