10-21-13-My Morning Thoughts: “LUNCH TIME”

10-21-13-My Morning Thoughts: “LUNCH TIME” Is it lunch time yet…remember when lunch was a blast…slamming down your lunch as fast as humanely possible so you could get out in the school yard to play with your friends…wouldn’t it be nice if we took that approach as adults during our lunch break? Could you imagine your office going outside and playing 4 square to blow off some steam…Or maybe the road construction crews pulling out an old football for a quick game of street ball…or the fast food personnel grabbing a fast game of tag in the parking lot…it may sound a little crazy but even as I’m writing this I have high expectations for lunch today…only 4 or 5 hours till lunch!...have a great Monday all…plain and simple.

10-18-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Being Old”

10-18-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Being Old” You know I don’t want to be old! I don’t mind getting older or the age thing never really bothered me but the being old thing that kind-a gets to me. Not being able to do the things you’ve done all your life is going to suck quite frankly…and the way I rolled-out-of-bed this morning like it was the first time I ever got up in my life really put it into perspective! How do things continually hurt in the morning for no apparent reason when I know I didn’t do anything but sleep last night! Why do my knees crack all the way down the steps? How come my eyes aren’t completely focused until my second or third cup of coffee? Why is it so hard to put my sox on now!!!!...well, the one good thing about the morning is that…first, it is another morning…and second…something is always going through my mind when I sit down at this computer…plain and simple.

10-17-13-My Morning Thoughts

10-17-13-My Morning Thoughts: by Larry Insana an apolitical folk singer that spells very poorly. Truth or Dare? 1) Am I really an apolitical folk singer?...answer…NO, I also like rock, country, blues, jazz, bluegrass, reggae and a host of others. 2) Do I really spell that bad?...answer…yes, I absolutely suck at spelling however, I must admit, all this practice on “My Morning Thoughts” has improved my spelling greatly…And I have to say that…you CAN… teach an old dog new tricks…I’m living proof! 3) Are these really my morning thoughts…answer…yes, whatever comes to mind I let it out. Sometime I get ideas from the news or an old show or from topics stated on the internet although the morning thoughts that I’m most partial to are the ones that come from the memory banks that have strolled out of life’s journey…plain and simple.

10-16-13-My Morning Thoughts: The Student Loan Bubble Buster!

10-16-13-My Morning Thoughts: The Student Loan Bubble Buster! $52 Billion in student loans have defaulted in the first half of this year! ok check this out, there’s about 39 million student borrowers at this time which adds up to $1 trillion of federal student loan debt…each student loan averages to about $26,000 of debt…this amount has soared upwards of 43% since 2003!...what do you think will happen when more and more students continue to graduate or drop out without the hopes and/or means to pay this back? If-a-you-a-don’t-a-have-a-job-a-how-a-you-a-going-a-to-a-pay-a-this-a-back-a??????...you think the housing crash was bad wait till you see this one…weather your for higher education or not you must see that a plan needs to be put in place to make this affordable…I could cut the future debt in half by the end of the day…eliminate the first 2 years of college completely!!!!!! The only thing you learn your first 2 years of college is the pizza delivery number and how to dress for toga parties! Your junior and senior years is when most people start taking classes in the majors anyway!...see, future student debt defaults cut in half!...plain and simple.

10-15-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Brain Drive”

10-15-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Brain Drive” Did you ever think about how much information is stored in that hard drive of our brains? Memories of childhood, teenager, adult, numbers, addresses, friends, names, birthdays, hero’s, sports, statistics, traditions, recipes, fun times, bad times, sad times, out of time…and so much more…What do you think…about 8 gigs or so I would guess unless you count all the movies we’ve seen or music listened to…you know video and music uses up way more space…anyway, my “brain drive” is moving slower everyday and I was wondering if I should install more storage and a faster processor or just upgrade my coffee strength…any ideas…plain and simple.

10-14-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Commercials”

10-14-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Commercials” I don’t think I could sit through a TV show today without recording capabilities! I am spoiled for sure. The other day I forgot to record one of my favorite shows and had to sit through about 8 commercials…well 7 commercials and when the 8th one started I turned off the TV and…”picked up my guitar and played”!!!!!...much more relaxing anyway…plain and simple.

10-10-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Old Fashion Letters”

10-10-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Old Fashion Letters” Let me see a show of hands…how many people still write letters? Not just birthday cards but an actual letter? I would be willing to bet (if I could) that most have not written a letter for some time…I could be wrong but I just don’t see the mail carrier carrying half as much as they use too and I know they’ve given-em more houses to deliver to with all the cut backs…I tell ya an actual letter goes a long way these days…I don’t write to many anymore cause my hand writing is worse than my spelling…LOL…plain and simple.

10-09-13-My Morning Thoughts: “(gas) what’s that smell?”

10-09-13-My Morning Thoughts: “(gas) what’s that smell?” I just can’t believe the news last night…they said that the gas prices have only been over 4 dollars a gallon 15 times in the last 1000 days…and they were acting like that’s a good thing!!!!! They failed to mention that it has not been under 3 dollars a gallon in those same 1000 days either!!!!!...will it ever be under 2 dollars a gallon again?????...maybe I should just walk more anyway…plain and simple.

10-08-13-My Morning Thoughts: “A Blues Song”

10-08-13-My Morning Thoughts: “A Blues Song” I have this killer music for a blues tune with a great quick lick (riff) but words are just not coming to me for some reason!!!! Help me out! I need a good opening line to get me started like “I went down to the crossroad” or “One way out babe, lord I just can’t go out the door” or “the sky is crying” or “My Baby’s Gone” or …give me the first line and if I use it you shall be mentioned on the next album I record…plain and simple.

10-07-13-My Morning Thoughts: “The Meaning of Life”

10-07-13-My Morning Thoughts: “The Meaning of Life” I figured it out this morning it is so simple I can’t believe I didn’t figure this out years ago!...the meaning of life is…darn…I lost my train of thought…now I have to start all over again…have a great day all and if you know the meaning of life please remind me…plain and simple.
