'Merry Christmas to All, And to All A Good Night', AND, I Mean Everyone!

Steve and Jan, 1996? by Crystal J. Sincoff
O.K....What's this post all about.....Anyway?....You know, we both bet you have a pretty good guess...if we say 'Christmas!'....huh?
Yeah...It's that time of year and, that's on every one minds ain't it? 
I can see it in every body's face....BUT, there's more I can see this year....they're a little too quiet, their smile a little too forced.
'What are they gonna do this time?'....all the children are excited, jumping up and down with glee...watching for Santa to come down that chimney and all....they're expecting, ...expecting....'ah'.... all types of goodies, presents and stuff. Just where is it all coming from....'ah'...Santa or something?...SMILE!
I heard that it's a real blessing,..'to see life the way it really is...not the way we wish it was'.
Times are difficult, food, utilities and rents especially high with wages just not keeping up with demands of everyday life. it's especially difficult on young families with wide-eyed expecting children, who have been taught they haveta keep up with little Tommy and Mary next door.
I see more and more folks living in R.V.s, 5th Wheels and Travel Trailers...and it looks like giving up on ever owning their very own 'dream home'.
Another thing,.....have you seen the increase, availability [spell?] and acceptability of street drugs? I mean, really hard street heroin! for example. I believe many use that stuff, just to handle just what is happening with wages and  their expectations above.
Someone who sings 'bout real life and hardships, and not sugar coating it a bit, is TOM WAIT. An American singer-song writer, composer and actor...[WIKIPEDIA]. His voice has been descibed as...' "it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car".

This morning, I found a 'Chrismas Carol' by him that spoke of all of these things... 'ah'...kinda, well anyway it reminded me of them..and my concerns about manifesting of our dreams in life...not, just pretending, closing our eyes and getting another mortgage or something. Jan

I 'm posting Tom Wait's Christmas tune and video below...AND, 'Merry Christmas'.

Remembering LEON RUSSELL...NO Stranger TO Me, In Any Land

O.K.....have you noticed and read about all the great musical artists from the '60's and 70's that have been checking out lately? It's  kinda strange isn't it?
In the past month LEONARD COHEN, LEON RUSSELL and SHARON JONES have all gone elsewhere. I will miss them all.
So, I'm re-posting my report about Leon Russell here, and will look for my stories about Cohen and Jones and re-post them too.
This is my way to show my respect their contribution to music. Jan

A Stranger In A Strange Land?...No Way...It's LEON RUSSELL

by CLender cc
Well, this guy is one of my favorites... he's no stranger to me, I bet you recognize him too...It's LEON RUSSELL, and it seems like Leon's been 'round just forever that's all....the late '60's is when I first noticed him and he became an instant hero to me.  As time went on and I learned more about him...well, I just seemed to love him more and more.
O.K....Russell was and is a very gifted genius song writer, not only writing awesome songs that he has recorded himself, but he's written so many songs for other musical artists. He has played with so many musical Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, The Byrds, The Carpenters, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, Glen Campbell, Elton John, Tiajuana Brass,...and so many more, see WIKIPENDIA link below.. I believe the greatest and most talented musicians of the 60's and '70's. ...WOW.
It was no wonder that he was put into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME in 2011, it was about time, I say. [See MY story about Leon's Hall of Fame entrance in 2011 HERE]  But, he did more than just rock and roll, there's country, folk, gospel, and blues too...really everything. He is respected and honored by musicians of all genres, and has written, or jointly written lotsa big hit tunes for them all, as well as been on stage performing along side them all. He's a musician's musician. Please read his bio from WIKIPEDIA to get the whole list of the number of musicians that his life has touched and enhanced. O.K?
His inter-racial marriage in 1975 to 'Sly And The Family Stone' member MARY McCLEARY and, his unique odd sounding voice, ..was just like my 'want to be a singer' voice, just made Russell even more endearing to me always...he always sounded just like one of us 'common' folk. Love you Leon. Jan

O.K.....let me do it....'Music, Family, Health.....WOW!....Freedom's in there to think whatever I want, whenever I want, without any limits....yeah, very own private thoughts, they may not be like anyone else's but that's O.K. 'cause they're mine....really very own private thoughts and the way I choose to think. Same with you...huh?...AND, we're all different, and that's wonderful and the way it's 'spose to be.

BARTLETT Playing Bass in Our Garden?....Really? I Was Almost Fooled....You?

by J.A.Rose cc
As you all know, I am so lucky to have so much time on my hands...and feet...and face.
Well, 'face' reminds me of something really cool...namely EATIN' stuff! Lotsa folks like food and I'm no exception.
I like eating food...specially from our garden.
Steve loves to take care of our little farm, when he's not playing the bass. He plays music in our garden too,while he tastes a little of this and that. Some things I never ever even get to see...BUT, I know he's been sampling (spell?)....he's picking green stuff out ta his teeth, and doing it kinda snicky-like (spell? again)..a sure sign of garden goodness going down his hatch.
Steve's wonderful though, and really shares most of that stuff very well, and I know it's, for example, this morning...he canned 7 quarts of plums from one of our trees..guess he couldn't eat them all...and he said there's gonna be more plums soon too.
Here's some pictures. O.K? Jan

PHOTO INFO.  TOP PHOTO; Upright bass in the garden, he's picking goodies when I'm not looking...he thinks.(wink). Jan
.1. .Plum photo: A plum from our tree...yum...beautiful. Steve's picture from his phone. Jan
2. berry photo: A few weeks ago....raspberries, from our garden...Steve canned them too..and jam. WOW! What a guy. Steve's picture. Jan
3. Hungry Baby Photo: URI, my grandson...(1 year old) likes food too. It must be in his genes, I don't think it's just a temporary phase that he's going through...Grandma Jan
4. Hungry Lady Photo: My daughter likes to eat's in our genes guys, we can't help it!...really! Jan
5. Attack Chicken Photo:Attack Chicken is always on duty in our garden and on the farm...see? Jan
