The Zombies : 'Time of the Season'

I have run into this song several times in my life, but never bothered to check who it was by. Well, I had another encounter with it while watching the documentary ‘The Dog’, and decided that today would be the day I was going to put a name to the music. 59 more words

Correct engine required: 1968 Porsche 911S SWB

When we have seen at a glance this ad we thought “WOW”: unfortunately it was too good to be true.

Friday December 5 was the highlight of Bro’s recent visit. We did the Chicago tourist thing for hours and hours. Bro has made these excursions enough times that we can go farther off the beaten track than tourists who are in Chicago for the first time, and/or only have a day or two. 827 more words
