Katie’s Cup, the sequel

Hi. Welcome to autumn… Been gettin’ chillier around the midwest, the last couple days….. And speaking of the last couple days, we played at Katie’s Cup, a local coffee house, and indoor farmers market, last Thursday. We play again, on Nov. 18th, from 10:30-12:30pm cst… Stop by, if you are in the neighborhood! Anyway, here’s a few pix and video snippets that our friends, Rise’ and Mollie shot. Very nice of them to stop by….

So here are a few pix and video snippets that our friends Rise’ and Mollie shot, while getting a coffee…

The Great Facebook Fiasco

HI there, everyone…. So, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all bit the dust for several hours, yesterday-Monday… IMO, they did us a favor, to wean us off, and, to show that we can live without them, and, that there are other alternatives to the Zuckerberg circus… I admit, I did miss Instagram a little, but other than that…. Meh…. Our lives went on. Yard work, errands, music, and projects… My lovely wife baked 2 apple pies, and a crisp, with apples we picked. Oh, even got our flu shots. So, did I miss some of our friends adventures? Yes. But, did not miss the sh1t show that can be Facebook…

Amazing apple pie

Artscene 2021

Hey there, from the midwest… So, we were asked to play some tunes, for Artscene- an event, that showcases local artists. We played for two hours, and it was great fun… My nephew and his wife (Tyson & Patti) stoped by, and not only visited, but documented a few of the tunes… Wanted share the snippets w/ you…

Just wanted to share…

Hey kids. Had the obvious thought, that, we should share our friends YouTube pages…. So, here are just some of the amazing people/musicians we know…

Hey there. Happy Autumn… Or Spring…. Depending on where you are…

So, haven’t posted anything for a couple weeks- been busy w/ irl stuff… But our friend Michael August has been on us with a stick, to post our take on this James Taylor classic. The Magtones put a spin on it… Hope you like it…

Broadview Farms and Gardens

Wanted to mention, that we’ve been purchasing produce from Broadview Farm and Gardens for several years. Always amazing produce. Not to mention interesting and nice people… This year, we signed up/purchased a ‘CSA’ summer salad share… Best produce idea we’ve done in years… Just killer produce. Fresh, flavorful, and beautiful. We’ve eaten like queens and Kings… Plus,meet get to support local farms… A win/win situation…
So, just saying, that this may be something you would be interested in… Check ’em out… http://www.broadviewfarmandgardens.com
