I got wonderful gifts for my birthday, including a modern air purifier from my dear daughters.

The surprises included texts that I read as well as cards, emails and voice mails I heard. However since I no loger visit that platform which has recently lost face, I apologize to all those freinds who may have sent greetings, but did not take the time required to read my parting messages of Adios Amigos, ands Hasta La Vista!

Seasons Greetings from #CityImages. This is the first full week of the most wonderful three months and our favorite time of the year.

Today Is the 21st of September, which means it may be time to listen and delve into the Earth, Wind & Fire classic smash hit.

But do you remember why the band happened to chose the 21st as the date for the song? Many assume it has to do with the seasons changing September 21 is the first day of Autumn. It happens to be the international day of peace. The simple reality is that it rhymes nicely..

Drummer Boy

The sixty-something-year-old who lives in my building thinks he is a real drummer because he likes to bang with his drumsticks.

Never mind that he does this at night while most normal folks sleep, but he can't even keep a beat. Therefore he is more like a dumber boy.

What makes a great drummer? There are many metrics to consider, but there are various rankings in no particular order based on technical skill, creativity/innovation, compositional ability, and attitude.
