New acquisition

Have been ultra busy with music recently- out meeting new musicians, gigging recording, and selling  gear that I don’t use and allowing me to buy new stuff. – this week have sold an acoustic guitar and agreed a sale on anoter item – so three out, means one in! 

Hot rodded FBJ clone. Only 20 watts but sounds gorgeous! Looking forward to using it tonight at the Blues jam.


Happy Polling Day

Time to vote. Have I listened to the debates, the arguments, the caterwauling and the promises/lies? As much as is humanly possible, and that isn’t much. Who do I want to win? Labour…. because I hope/believe that they are probably going to govern in a way that goes along with my beliefs. And that’s probably more based on my past experience, than anything specific I have heard during the campaign. I liked a Labour leader with beliefs and no dress sense….. pass me the duffle coat, Mikey. At a local level, the weather forecast is mild, therefore chances of hell freezing over or Labour winning are equally unlikely. So it is a tactical vote then. But it leaves me feeling a little uncomfortable that a party I am voting for as the lesser of two evils believes that I support it, whereas the one I have traditionally supported ‘sees’ I am not voting for them. Is there a way of adding an addendum saying – ‘by the way, this vote is not FOR you, but against THEM!’?
Happy Polling Day!
