#259880 Not sure where to put this

Posted by Bj1 on 13 April 2019 - 03:49 PM

The jelly rubber items are good to go :)


And I do wear bow ties - and I know how to tie them!  My pants, however, are not anticipating a pending flood.

I can't wear metal or plastic if it comes into contact with my skin.  Rings make my finger joints ache; plastic makes me break out in hives.  I wear my fitbit (with a leather band).  Clothing wise, if I'm playing dress up it's cuff links, 1940's style tie bar (https://i.ebayimg.co...ohYM/s-l300.jpg), and stick pin.

Last night I went to the Festival of Lights.  Tuesday I'm running down to Puerto Vallarta for a few days.  Decided to spend June in México City.  Will have to pop back to Seattle at some point before the trip to Europe in September.  Busy, busy, busy!

I'm preparing to transfer some files to a new computer and ran across these.  It's been a while since last watched and they're still as funny as the first time I saw them.

Here's a fun one to bring back some memories (no, I'm not as old as some of these!), all with Bobby Banas in one form or another.  I'll say he got roles in some killer productions!

#259589 what song are you listening to right now?

Posted by Bj1 on 29 January 2019 - 12:58 AM

That kid is a MESS! He only has 12 videos on his channel and they all are very interesting. What a young talent!


His "Mission Impossible" is my favorite, but it doesn't showcase the variety of his talent as much as his Beethoven's 5th.  If you search for his name on YouTube, other videos come up.  There's a really popular one from a few years back that I'd seen at the time (classroom with jealous students listening to him play).  





My other favorite guitarist, Billy Watman, was just accepted to the Royal College of Music on a full scholarship.

#259492 And how was your day???

Posted by Bj1 on 08 January 2019 - 03:52 PM

A few years ago when I was thinking about retiring, I signed up on a bunch of last-minute/cheap-ticket airfare websites.  Usually I just delete them with the junk emails I get, but the other day one caught my eye ...


$288 roundtrip, Boston <--> Paris.  Available flights as far out as October something.  I have seen cheaper, but not in a while, and not with a two week stay in September.  Mazatlán summer is still brutal in September, so someplace else is a perfect place to be.  I've always wanted to go to Europe, but have said I want to stay for a couple of months and do it right.  Well, this is a couple of weeks.  I wouldn't be able to fit everything that I want to do/see in, but it does get me there, and I can see a LOT of things in a two week period (travel between major cities/countries is often just a few hours).  I have over 200,000 airline miles racked up so getting to/from Boston isn't much more of an expense.


I bought tickets.  September 17 through October 1.  I'm thinking of trying to visit these cities:  Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Munich or Berlin, Vienna and Budapest.  I'll probably have to drop one or two cities out of the mix when I get to the point of checking train timetables.  Budapest is out of the way, but my paternal natural grandparents were from Hungary, so I'd like to go.  London is probably the spot that will be on the chopping block first, and I won't spend too much time in Paris as I am really only interested in seeing the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre (I know, the Louvre could take days to see properly).


So, question for those who have been, or who have planned on going - what would you see/do and why.  Places easy to get to, and centrally located would be best.  I'll be visiting major cities only, staying in hostels, and taking subways whenever possible.  Davy suggested I only ride the high speed trains between each place, so that'll cost me a little more, but give me more time to wander.  I'm also going to only travel with my small backpack and 3 days worth of clothes, so I won't be doing anything requiring me to play dress-up :)
