Greetings One and All. I must be the luckiest guy on the planet. “Why?” you ask? Because I get to do super cool stuff and then write about it. So what’s on tap today?

Greetings Everyone! We’re starting 2013 off on a strong note (good one Alan!). As I’m the guitar fan in the family, this was a particular treat for me. We took a tour of a local Master guitar maker’s shop, and it was fascinating.
