From the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Lord, please have mercy on us.

Tami and I hang out in the kitchen sometimes, while she tells me about her day at school. This time, we are trying to figure how the fish tank filter is supposed to work.

The Ark Encounter Williamstown Kentucky 2017
We made it this time! Last week, we had a family trip to Cane's because we mistakenly thought the Ark was at the Creation Museum.
I call it the Ark Experience, because moving around it and in ti really is an experience. It is also an encounter, because no matter what you believe or think about this thing, it really does cause you to think.
We all enjoyed it and look forward to visiting it again.
Oh yeah...I took pictures of the "Spooky Jesus" (formerly known as "Touchdiwn Jesus" before lightning struck it...so I'm told) on the way back home.

How to Make Beats Laying Down Basic Music Ideas
I like to make Moody Instrumental Music on Saturday mornings. Sometimes, I start out the morning with playing around on the keyboard until I play a chord or melody that catches me and inspires me to develop more of a song. I call this my exploration and discovery process for making music.
Since I don't start with any musical pieces in my head (the way I normally do), I just make time to "explore" and "discover" music using this method. Rather than try to develop entire song ideas using this method, I just try to get the basic parts - the "foundation" - of a song captured in Propellerhead Reason. This way, I can always come back to the track later and develop it.
In this video, watch how I start out with two very basic 4-note piano chords and build a basic song idea. The bass and drums are added to the piano to create a "chill" song idea - something to lounge to on a nice Saturday morning.
The end of the video catches some of my improvisation on the basic idea. Usually, when I improv or "freestyle" on the track (with the piano) I can develop a real feel for the song idea, making it easier to build a complete song later.
