Weekend Warrior – Off Duty Doings

He was wonderful!

I saw Lindsey Buckingham on Saturday night at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.

Here’s an artist who maybe puts out a solo album every ten years and then he puts out two in two years!

“Gift of Screws” (a reference to an Emily Dickinson poem) is more upbeat than last year’s very introspective “Under the Skin”. It comes out on Tuesday and will be on iTunes and

I love everything he’s ever done.

I could have sat there all night just listening to his guitar.

If you click the link above, you can hear the first “single” off the CD, “Did You Miss Me”.

It’s worth the click!


We kicked major Michigan behind this week!

After last year, it’s nice to see the “old” Irish spirit back in the team.

Next week is our first away game, so that will be a big test of how far the team has come.

Geeze, I talk like I played the game, but trust me, if you could see me during the game you’d see I expend just as much energy!

I still miss Brady Quinn, though.


Of course the reason I still miss Brady Quinn is that, uh, he hardly plays during Browns games at all !

With all due respect to Derek Anderson, he just is not all that and a bag o’ chips.

It’s time to put Brady out there. Let’s put it this way, he can’t be any worse than Anderson.

I actually got to see a game (as opposed to listening on tonight and may I say something with the utmost sincerity? Just between us?

I hate the Steelers. With a passion.


Be still my beating heart!

Jeff Scott Soto’s new CD, “Beautiful Mess” is now on iTunes.

Geeze, maybe I need a music blog!

“21st Century” is the first single and the video is great (click link). I’ve met Jeff and the guitar player, Gary Schutt, and you will never find more down-to-earth, nicer guys.

I actually managed to act like a mature, professional adult in their presence.

Seriously! I didn’t swoon until I got home!

If you go see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra this year, Jeff will be with them on the west coast tour, so you’ll get to see him in person!


And last but not least, even though he isn’t in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Kasey still ran a respectable 11th place today.

Although to listen to the announcers, he barely existed at all.

Thank goodness I have TrackPass so I can listen to Kasey’s in-car radio while I follow the race on the computer AND watch it on TV at the same time.

Hey! Being a NASCAR fan is labor intensive.

Actually, I just needed an excuse to put this photo up – it’s my desktop image!

I now return you to the regularly scheduled nursing blog.

Hey, a girl’s gotta have a little fun now and then, right?

    It sure was great to see ND pull one out over Michigan. Yet another year to make fun of Wolverine fans.

    I’m bleeding a little Maize and Blue this morning, and my heart is heavy for Brett Favre, but your news about TSO certainly brightened my spirits! This will be our 6th consecutive TSO concert at Arco in Sac, and I’m really fired up to see JSS playing with them. Got tickets right up front and ready to party!

    GO STEELERS!!! Heh heh. Sorry Kim, had to. (I have the same kind of passion for the Browns that you have for the Steelers)
    I would agree with you about putting Quinn in at QB. It SURE wouldn’t have hurt the Cleveland offense last night.
