Today, jazz legend Oscar Peterson passed away. He played along side most of the greats of jazz and established himself as one of those greats during the 1950's with the formation of the the Oscar Peterson trio.

Environment Canada has issued a warning that Canada will face the coldest winter in 15 years.

I've already begun to feel the proof as the temperature outside right now is -15 degrees Celcius. This time last year it was still above freezing. Brrrr.

I have not had a Christmas morning like this since I was a child. I woke to find two of the greatest gifts surprises of my life. You see, I’m a guitar player. More than that, I’m a guitar nut. I’m crazy about all kinds of guitars and have a number of them in my collection. A Gibson Les Paul, Gretsch Duo Jet, Sheckter C1 Plus, Fender Stratocaster, Ovation Elite Special, Washburn EA 10 Acoustic/Electric, and my prize possession, a 1969 Gibson LG-0 Acoustic.

I've been watching and reading for a while now. I've concluded that JU is comprised of 3 to 6 people and then me.
The others all suffer multiple personality disorder and insomnia. Their various personalities argue with each other all for my enternainment.
