I've been busy as heck lately! I have been taking care of several websites as best I can for The John Simoneaux Memorial Jam, The Denizen's Of Doom (DoD) and the Louisiana Open Carry Awareness League!
More than a few times Terri has found me passed out at the keyboard in my recliner. The ol' brain has to work SO much harder these days to do what used to come so easy... Oh well. It keeps me busy and my mind occupied and that's a good thing.

I decided to pick back up participating in the SETI@Home project. If you didn't know, SETI stands for the Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence. A program runs in the background of your computer using "spare" cycles to process data that it downloads and sends back once it is done. It can be configured to only work when you aren't using your PC up to running all the time or anything in-between.
I have it running on both my laptops and I joined the Louisiana Team. Check it out; it can be configured to be VERY unobtrusive and you won't even know it's there while you are contributing to the research. There are other projects that you can contribute to as well! You even get nifty certificates for your efforts.

YEARS ago, back when I was younger and road my motorcycle everywhere, I was involved with a motorcycle club of sorts... the DoD. Well, after a long time away, they have resurfaced! The DoD started out as a UsenetNews group and is now on FaceBook! Check them out!

14 years ago I lost a good friend, John Simoneaux, who was also my guitar player for a good many years. Every year we hold a Memorial Jam in his honor in Ruston, LA at the Sundown Tavern and Ponchatoula's next door. This time of year is especially hard on me because, a few years after John's death, my dad died the exact same day! Want to get real freaked out? My mom dies the week before back when I was 13. All those major deaths within a week of each other...
On to the lighter side! Ever year at this time I get to see old friends and be a part of something great and to listen to some great music! We entertain almost a thousand people and feed most of them too. The inner circle of people who work to put this on are some great folks. They volunteer massive amounts of their time each year and donate the use of their expensive equipment and skills. Without them, this event would not take place.
Again Taylor has donated a fantastic Electric guitar to be raffled off at $5 a chance!

Rest In Peace Dad Mom and John...
