Best laid plans and all that

Well, I had meant to blog some this week... of course that didn't quite work out did it. There was just too much going on.

Last Sunday we attended a local jazz show that included Dorado Schmitt and the Django Reinhardt All Stars. In a very odd twist, the guy who stole the show plays an accordion. His name is Ludovic Beier. I swear I never thought an accordion could sound like that - amazing.

The other part of the show was the Grace Kelly quintet. (be aware music is autorun at her site in case you click the link and have your speakers on somewhere that is supposed to be quiet) She is a tremendously talented saxophone player. Terrific performer too. I can't believe she's only 20.  Great show indeed. We go to very few shows. Have to say I'm very glad we took the time to go see this one.

Had a big meeting Wednesday at Logan airport. Excellent presentations. I can say for sure that (TSA not withstanding) airport security is taken very seriously. I don't think I could do it, I have a hard enough time sleeping at night...

Of course we had the nor'easter roll through on the same day. It dumped a few inches of snow on us which has since melted away. Luckily I was able to sit out rush hour over at Remy's with some excellent snacks, drinks, and people. Then it was an easy drive home instead of inching home in traffic. I'd rather get home late than sit in rush hour traffic with snow/rain and wind.

Also got the water system yearly service. Now it needs to be tested to be sure the system is doing what it should. I don't think arsenic in the water is conducive to good health... just my feeling on it. We have to keep on top of the water filter maintenance to be sure it is kept out.

Got hold of the last of the Winston Churchill books - The Last Lion (Part 3). I knew someone was trying to finish the last one and apparently Paul Reid has done it. It was recently released. The other 2 were excellent but I read them years ago.

And last of all, if hurricane Sandy has made you start thinking about your emergency food rations, Nom Nom Paleo has pulled together a list (with sources) of things you might think about adding to your kit. Over at Steve's Original  (which she links) there are paleo MRE's that will last 2 years.  Lots of dense calories - well worth considering. 

That's it for now! Have a fabulous rest of the weekend.

1 I'm glad y'all are good.  The whole 'no power and very cold' would be seriously sucky.

2 Bou you are so right. Even with a part time generator, no just sucks pond water.  Have done it for short periods of time in winter and I don't like it
