    I haven't been yelled at and berated for awhile over the Random Bad Bluegrass Band Name thing. Kind of been missing that. Run into an occasional person that finds nothing amusing about that.

    You know, my dream is to have a band named Geezerville. I have plenty of friends who would qualify, but people have no sense of self deprecation. I have a friend who is one of those guys who play everything well. We had a charity gig and I suggested we be Dave and the Wannabes. No takers, though everyone wants to play like him.

    I just sat for about a minute clicking on the band names and they all sounded like legit bluegrass band names.

    "Long Lost"? If I didn't know it was there, how could it be lost?

    But if it is subsequently "found" anyway, I would have to say that is just amazingly graceful.

    I did have fun wasting some time there today, thanks.

    Something jogged my memory and I remembered there's a mandolin criss cross puzzle here. Sort of lame, but I'm not exactly Will Shortz.

    Fun stuff! At least it kept me out of the Cafe Classifieds for a while.
