There is a saying among boaters that if you don’t have a boat, having friends with a boat is just as good.  Well, that might not be the exact wording, but you get the gist. Erin and I have the good fortune to have friends with a boat, and we went to visit them last […]

Q:  Are we not men? A:  We are DEVO! I wondered if it would be worth the trip to Buffalo last Thursday to see Devo at the Town Ballroom.  What a hassle. Going over the border, the long drive, the heat, etc., etc. Well, of course I had to go, Erin being such a fan […]
