Hey, the Waffle House stays open so what else do you want when you are returning from a gig?

A massage - HA! these guitars get heavy after a while :) It isn't going to happen around here though. I have spent my time in Waffle House in various locations around the country.

Just a little apology. A little while back 'guitar picker' complained about Foley not doing enough to provide entertainment for kids while at the same time spending money for senior activities. This hit a sour note with me. I came out hard on kids and the sacrefices that taxpayers are constantly expected to expend for kids at the expense of other necessities of life. I hold to that opinion. It is really a matter of balance that I am interested in and will fight for. I think every age group is entitled to its fair share of taxpayer's money and it bores me to death to constantly hear the drumbeat that we all should deny ourselves a good life for the next generation. The proposed increase in the Baldwin County Sales Tax is a perfect example. I'm not against providing a good education for the kids. I don't want to see anyone laid-off (private or public workers); but, I don't see rewarding the Baldwin County Board of Education for not using the millions of dollars in taxpayer's money efficiently and not planning beforehand when it was obvious to every sector in our society that we were entering and were in a very severe economic depression. It is obvious to me that they felt confident that the taxpayers would once again come to their rescue as they have always done and bail them out so that they could continue to pay lots of people more than they deserved, fail to fire those who did not perform their duties adequately and continue to provide amenities to students that were above and beyond the realm of basic education. I would ask everyone to consider this tomorrow, March 23rd and VOTE 'NO' TO THE PROPOSED INCREASE IN THE BALDWIN COUNTY SALES TAX! If this passes, it will not encourage the Baldwin County Board of Education to take the necessary steps to control spending but will only reinforce their long standing assumption that whatever amount of additional money they ask the taxpayers to cough-up, the taxpayers will cough-up. Believe me, the students will survive this 'NO' vote even if the Baldwin County Board of Education does not.
