Shark Week: Insanity Shark

Another year, another Shark Week gone by. Where does the time go?
Wild Kingdom Bed & Breakfast UpdateAlthough there is always plenty of room for the guests who prefer to feed on the patio itself, or on the grass just beyond, a few of my avian friends show a marked preference for the feeder. And when more than two or three of them at a time try to use it, the results can be mildly amusing...

Until Next Time...One of the most familiar legends in American blues music is story of Robert Johnson, who allegedly met the Devil at a crossroads and sold his soul in exchange for fame and fortune. That story, of course, is just a re-telling of the Faust legend, but it has still inspired a number of songs and stories centering around Johnson and his music. One of my favorites in this genre is a humble little film released in 1986 called Crossroads. The movie was well-reviewed, but didn't do anything at the box office and is now mostly forgotten. If you can find it, though, it is definitely a charming tale. And the best part is the soundtrack by the fantastic Ry Cooder.
Have I mentioned that my blues-rock hero Joe Bonamassa was born on Robert Johnson's birthday?
Anyway, today's send-off is my favorite track from the film. Some days, the blues just feels right, you know?
