On the way back from that, we saw that there was a brewery festival taking place just outside of town. Tickets were $25 a head ...

We drove by the brewery festival on our way to the Linganore Winery Jazz Festival in Maryland. I suggested my wife changing plans but she insisted on going to the wine festival. It was good, the music was surprisingly good.

Thanks for understanding me, Medic8r.

... and for not mentioning the 4 month fling I had with SpeakerGrrl... though when I finally met her, she wasn't all that attractive.

Just watch it. Now that I know your preferred stance and that you can only hit a stationary target after some serious prep, you're in for a world of pain.

Geez. What is this now, message thread #4 in the watercooler that will turn into some long discussion... What, you think that Axiom is going to give you even more good toys when you hit 20,000 posts by the end of the summer? Geez....

All I ask is that when I show up for work one morning they don't turn me away. \:\)

We had a pretty good one.

My wife and I took our new car on it's first weekend getaway. We drove up to Chicago for the weekend. The car worked surprisingly well for having about zero trunk space.



Our primary reason was to go to Ravinia and see Dave Brubeck & Ramsey Lewis in concert. Did the whole picnic on the lawn thing. Had a great time. Really fun to see a couple of living legends (in the Jazz world) in concert. The sound was excellent but it reminded me just how good my Axioms are at home. Seriously, there were times when I thought that it sounded better at home via Axioms & SACD's than it did live. \:o



Then on Sunday we did some shopping and eating but mainly just tooled around the Loop. Greatly enjoying being in civilization for a few hours before heading back to the cornfields.

It was a lovely day in the Windy City. Especially from a little two-seat convertible. ;\)

Very nice! Naturally, it sounds better at home. The sound isn't being refracted by many thousands of heads before it reaches your ears. ;\)

Peter B., your weekend sounds about perfect. But now a new week has begun and it is back to work... on mounting those speakers and posting some pics!

Peter C., that looks like a really fun car to drive. A sporty yellow convertable, the opposite of boring in every way.

Wow, a nice convertible, picnic and Dave Brubeck live... good times indeed!
I still enjoy going to jazz concerts. I don't care anymore going to rock concerts; much rather watch them at home. Jazz is another story; improvisational players feeds from the audience energy/moods, it's quite magical. There's some of that at rock concerts but it has lost its magic for me :-)

ah, and enjoy that convertible!

OOOOOOOO Wegman's. I fell in love with Wegman's when I was in upstate New York visiting Ray (forum member Ray3). A truly great grocery store. They have a chocolate cake that is too decadent to be eaten with clothes on. YUMMY!

Had a routine, quiet weekend. Nothing worth reporting. \:\(
