The photos are those of my grandparents, on my mother's side, and their five sons (my uncles-THE CHAVEZ BROTHERS) in military uniform, all in the service (Army and…Continue

Work's at days' end...when it's about to be lights out. Listening to the mellowest of melodies...love this Charlie Haden & Pat Matheny construct of:
The Moon Song from their beyond the Missouri Sky album/disc.

A Toast “to the crazy ones,” by Steve Jobs
Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is…Continue
