I'm banished to the basement tonight. The homeschooling moms monthly night out is a pot luck here at ODonnellWeb world headquarters. I watched American Idol, that Marine can sing. I have to think his value as a recruiter far exceeds his value as a combat soldier. I hope he goes all the way. Now that the kids are in bed, I'm sitting here greatly enjoying Mark Selby's new album. It's smokey southern blues, they kind of stuff they play in roadhouses on dusty state highways in southern towns you've never heard of. It doesn't rock out like his first release, this album is more introspective, but that is not a bad thing at all.
