My Namesake Website Has Launched

Peg, my manager, has done a fantastic job setting up a website for me under my real name. Just click on the picture above to visit (Nice Jimi Hendrix shirt, huh?).

Feel free to leave any site reactions or suggestions in the comments here. I do moderate the comments, but I publish all but the most infantile stuff.

Now that this is out of the way, I should be back to music blogging more frequently.

Just remember...

I had a black cat who looked just like that. He lived for twenty-one years!

I see Gentle Machinist has outed me as one of your lurking fans, Sir.

Hello, it's a pleasure to meet you!

I enjoy your work and look forward to many more cold nights cuddled up with my household reading about your adventures and insights. Music is a big part of my world and you have been an added treat. I wish you all the best, thank you for sharing.

Are his house plans the bomb, or what?! I'd expect a machinist to get all "exactamente" about stuff like that. He's obviously a really neat guy. Can't wait for a chance to meet him... and you! (Hey: We ought to get a Texican Bloggers get-together organized: I've had that idea for a while now).

Oh, and no: THANK YOU! Lurkers, interlopers, and nice folks of all stripes are welcome here at MMM.

Thanks for darting out of the shadows, SBH.

Thank you for the kind words, Sir. The Gentle Lady (SBH) is one of the most respected and beloved members of the group and for good reason. She is quite a musical scholar herself. I am rather a hermit, also for good reason, and not a scholar. I just spent a lot of time looking at your new site. Very impressive and very enjoyable, Sir. I wish you the best of luck. I am looking forward to spending some time in your musical theory pages. Thank you again!

Scholar schmaller. My best bud in the world is a construction worker... only he does it at such a high level that he restores historic landmarks, one of his past projects being the restoration of Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest octagonal mansion in Virginia.

He's also a mechanic... who holds several motorcycle drag race records (We fabricate lots of stuff for our motorcycles in his machine shop. I'm sure you'd enjoy hanging out with us).

In other words, the guy's a genius, and he has no letters following his name. He's just a high school graduate... who lives on an estate of many acres in a mansion he designed and built himself.

I'll bet no college professor does as well as he does. I just like interesting people who pursue excellence in whatever they do.

George, Jeff is far too modest. One is in the very best of company when he is around. I have yet to find a subject upon which he can't converse sensibly - "Sense" being the operative word! If you can get him to talk ask him about custom machining firearms. Fascinating!

I've been trying to get him to take some college classes, now that he's retired. Music! His love! It's a privilege to hear him talk opera and he'd be a professor's delight in a music history course. Feel free to gang up on him with me about it. LoL.

I'm finding your older music theory pages to be just what I need to occupy myself right now. Thanks again, Sir.

Pfft...I think I hit the button too many times. Sorry.

PS. Now I wish to meet your friend, too! Sounds like quite a craftsman. Does he have a blog, also?

Firearms! I've been NRA since Jr. NRA back in the 70's, when I was into 50' indoor shooting competitions. Got to the rank of Sharpshooter, Bar IV, if I recall correctly. My best bud Brian and I also do lots of reloading and hunting.

It's a family tradition for me: My uncle is an NRA Endowment Member who was a personal friend of Roy Weatherby... and he calls Charlton Heston "Charlie." Always sits at Wayne La Pierre's table at NRA functions.

I think we'd get along great. ;^)

I was in Jr.ROTC in high school and was on the small bore rifle team. It's hard to believe that every Friday a group of us students would carry our rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition through the campus, load it into a student's car and drive to the range. Our rifle team and another school's provided volley fire using blanks when a young peoples' orchestra did a performance of Wellington's Victory at a local Jr. College. Once again the ten of us were walking about the campus, in uniform, with our target rifles. This was in the late sixties. Times have changed. I mainly shoot handguns now. I don't hunt but I do reload. I'm also an NRA member.

I was interested in your machining reference as well. I got into machining late in life as a hobby. When I decided to get out of management I started working as a machinist and ended up having my own shop for a while. My main customer was SanDisk. I started working with them about the time they developed the CF format (Compact Flash).

I too did Jr. ROTC shooting in high school. We didn't have a team (And the rifles were strictly guarded and secured), but we did train at 50' indoor with .22's. Of course, this was '72-'76 Im talking about.
