Tom Dowd -

We watched Tom Dowd and the Language of Music tonight.   What a wonderful man and what a gift he has given us as to music.  The music that I grew up with would not be the same without him, and he was such a lovely man.  I recommend watching it.

Here is some information:  http://www.thelanguageofmusic.com/

Steve believes in practicing driving skills, so though I have never caused an accident, and in 42 years of driving, have only been hit once by someone who drove right into the side of my car in a parking lot, I am taking a full day "car control clinic" tomorrow at Candlestick Park, aka Monster Park and 3Com Park.   I am not particularly excited and I'm sure it will be fun.  The man in charge interviews everyone and sounds like the warm and fuzzy teddy bear he says everyone says he is, so I will be leaving early tomorrow and heading south.  The rain should make the slalom course and practicing skids a great deal of fun.  Bob says the intention is to push our edges, so when an emergency happens we are ready to maneuver.

I'm sure I'll look back one day and be grateful I took the course.  For now, I'm enjoying the rain and going to bed early, since that was in our pages of instructions.  My motorcycle helmet is out, and ready to go, as is an extra quart of oil, just in case.   They say it is only mild wear and tear on the car and worth it, if it saves you from an accident.   That makes sense.

Sleep tight, and deeply soothing and romp-filled dreams for all.
