Block House Steeplechase

This weekend, I learned the difference between a horse race and a Steeplechase. A horse race is a flat, oval track where horses race. A Steeplechase is a non-flat, non-oval track where... well, horses race. I also learned that the horses don't actually "race". The horses just go... the jockeys race. They race the horses but the horses aren't the ones racing... just the jockeys.

Here we are. (transportation provided by the Broad River Correctional Institute.)

Desert Island Discs


Some magazine... Rolling Stone, I think, has (or had) a column where folks would submit their selections for albums to have with them if they found themselves stranded on a desert island... with a CD player.... and power supply, I imagine. I've thought about that lately and made a list. I discovered that I think my list would change over time. I only hope that when I get Fed-Exed to a remote paradise, I have a good list at the time. What 10 albums would you choose?

My List: (in no particular order)

Dream Theater - Scenes From a Memory (an easy one)

Rich Mullins - A Liturgy, A Legacy, and a Ragamuffin band (another easy one)

Rush - Hold Your Fire ( rush would always make the list and I should choose a collection but I have to go with this one)

The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper (I really wanted to put the Revolver album here to be cool but I just like this one better)

Bob Seger - Greatest Hits ( this is strange to me. no reason to include it except I listened to it on a trip last week and loved every second)

Bruce Springsteen - Greatest Hits ( I just wish it were longer)

David Wilcox - How Did You Find Me Here (like when you run across Shawshank Redemption or Jaws on cable TV you have to watch? same here)

DC Talk - Jesus Freak (love it, love what I remember when I hear it)

Pink Floyd - Pulse (hello... who wouldn't have it)

Simon & Garfunkle - Greatest Hits (would help if a babe were stranded with you)

Beverages to Go: The Sequel

My buddy Greg passed through today on his way back from whatever conference it was he went to in Charleston, as first described in George post: Beverages to Go. Apparently, the crowd wasn't too into the beer they brought since he is toting it all back to Nashville.
Unfortunately for him, he doesn't really drink. Fortunately for me....
