Laura had a 3-hour worship team rehearsal at Harvest Christian Center last evening, so I have no exciting menu to share. I had some tortilla chips and salsa and some spring water. Well, I warned you that it would not be exciting!

I watched two episodes of "Party Heat" and two episodes of "Beach Patrol" on truTV. I am always amazed by the idiotic antics of drunken beach-goers. The cops show considerably more restraint than I could!

I got in an hour of good practice with my new guitar and amp. I am very rusty, but I am progressing nicely.
