About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

She lived in a time when interracial marriages were illegal in California, so she went tp Paris and got married secretly Lennie Hayton, a musical director and composer. Click here: Lena Horne Biography for more about Lena's life.

On another note, I will be playing guitar this evening at 7:00pm at The Muskie Lounge in Alexandria Bay. It's more or less a trial thing to see how I fit with the place. I may play for only an hour, I'm quite sure it will be two hours at the most.
