Site Changes and… 2017 Trip

As I indicated earlier, I have made a few changes to the site. Since I haven’t been very good about updating lately, when I did sign in a few days ago, I discovered that quite a few things on the page were not working or looked odd. It is probably because there have been several updates to the WordPress software I use. So, I have spent the better part of 3 days tinkering with the…

Another Change

I guess that’s what I get for not posting, or even logging in to my blog for months at a time. When I got around to looking at it, some recent updates appear to have caused problems with the formatting.

Dan Hicks is Gone

OK, this is too much. Twenty sixteen may see the demise of every musician I liked when I was young(er). In today’s SF Chronicle came the report that Dan Hicks has died. That may mean little to many of you, Hicks was mainly a West Coast act, LA and San Francisco. But he holds a distinctive spot in my musical memory. I may have always been somewhat of an old fogey. In my younger days,…
