Remember, Remember...

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

Those lines are a mystery to most Americans, but very familiar to most Brits. They refer to Guy Fawkes Day, November 5th. Read up on it, then go light up a bonfire!

In my last entry, I was complaining about the heat. Now it's pleasantly cold and wintry here in the Cascade foothills. We had a very rapid season change this year. We went from record high temperatures (mid-70s in late October) to frost, snow, and record low temperatures within about a week. Essentially, we skipped Fall this year.

I've been having a great time playing with the jazz fellows -- Bob, Steve, and Neil -- on a semi-regular basis. We've made some rough demo recordings and I can see a lot of potential. These guys are all very talented and easygoing. The hardest thing is coming up with a name for the band, oddly enough.
