I'm a 60 year old guy who lives in Vista California with my wife. I spent the 30 years before moving to Cali in Iowa, Wisconsin and North Dakota. And I have 2 grown children, a son and a daughter who live in Virginia and Iowa and a 22 year old step-daughter lives with us here in Vista. I'm a proud grandpa with 2 grandaughters living in Virginia. I like to write about a whole variety of things from my kids to cooking to politics to the car industry to my status as a "Cheap Bastid" and "Old Fart" and just random thoughts. And I really love writing about cooking really good, homecooked comfort food cheap. That's why they call me the Cheap Bastid. By the way--all the stuff I write is my stuff and you can't use it without my official OkeyDokey

Mr. Rogers on Auto Tune--What a Delightful Video

Rate: 6 Flag

This was on Yahoo this morning.  It's a video of Mr. Rogers re-done and re-mastered and edited and all kinds of other good stuff including Auto Tune which really adds a different dimension.  (Auto Tune with Mr. Rogers is cool, with other "stars" it's just an excuse for not being able to carry a tune).

But it's touching and warm and interesting and makes me yearn for those simpler times when Mr. Rogers would come on each day and reinforce to our kids that everything's going to be all right.

 If you didn't come across it or haven't seen it yet, it's worth the 3 minutes out of your life.  Happy Friday and Happy Weekend.

Fred Rogers was a righteous dude!

The gardens of our minds indeed. You were right about a well spent three minutes my friend, you made me smile today and I wouldn't of give you a plug nickle of that happening. Thank you.
Now every time I see Fred Rogers I flash on Eddie Murphy and SNL, this remix is crazy stuff.
VCorso--yes he was. a righteous dude we could still use having around

David--you are very welcome, sir. keep the faith, David & have a great weekend.
I saw this this morning.. brilliant
Linda--thanks. yeah it's delightful. have a great weekend.
Fred Rogers would have loved this. He was a wonderful musician and even though he could have used taped background music on his shows, he used a live band for every episode. I miss him. This was just what I needed after a very disturbing day today. Thanks!
Thanks, Walter. I miss Mr Rogers. He stood for everything good.
