Saturday night I took in BritBeat at the historic Indiana Theatre in Terre Haute, IN. I should have prepared ahead of time for my mind to be blown. The lads heated up the gorgeous theatre on a frigid November eve. While I have been a fan of this great band for about a decade, I knew that I would be taking in a great show. But I didn't anticipate how much pleasure would result from their music, costume, set, video and performance variations. It is impossible for me to describe every nuance that blew my mind: John's delicious banter with the band and the audience, George's AMAZING acoustic performance of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," the black and white Flintstones video where Fred and Barney are smoking Winston cigarettes and watching their wives do their chores, tribute to John Lennon's 75th birthday, Ed Sullivan and the Topo Gigio jokes, the video, the music, o m g. Please put it on your bucket list to see this band. They are the real deal.

Apple I-Pad Users:

One person that I am thankful for is a fellow named Max. Max is the physical therapist for my mom at her nursing home. On many hard days where she insists on being completely difficult, I can somehow reel her in with the promise of Max.

Peace via Inspilights - for your I-Pad
Recently Max told me about an APP that he and his wife have created for the I-pad. I see the app as a wonderful way to "upgrade" your spirituality. As Max tells me, with the app, you can view remembrances and prayers in numerous religions. You view beautiful photos that promote peace. 
In the wake of our current world events, I think this app is a perfect way to bring some peace into your world. Max also pointed out to me that this is a wonderful way for bed ridden patients to experience spiritual peace.
