Back in 1995 I got a job at the Emminger Company as an apprentice cabinetmaker in Pittsburg, California. There was another apprentice working there. He was young, only about 20 years old. He had long hair. And he was a fan of Kurt Cobain and the Grunge Band, Nirvana.

At first, I hated Nirvana's music. But slowly I began to like it! Hmmmm? Soon I bought Nirvana Cds.

Now I am living in my La Mesa apartment. There is a wonderfully large bath tub here. I like to listen to music while soaking in the hot water.

I bought myself a small JBL stereo speaker that has Bluetooth capability. I am able to go to YouTube, search for a Nirvana album that I like, and transmit the music from my MacBook computer to the little JBL speaker in the bathroom using Bluetooth.

This morning I listened to to Nirvana's "Unplugged In New York" [link]. Pretty neat!

Biking to Sizzler
I went for lunch to the Sizzler in El Cajon. This is about an 11 mile round trip with an elevation rise of over 300 feet. I likely would not do this trip if I did not own an electric bike. Too much like work! However, being an electric bike, my Prodeco Mariner 7 is a joy to ride.

This particular Sizzler is my favorite. Some of the newer Sizzlers have changed their menus so that a senior steak is only a 4 ounce size. This Sizzler in El Cajon offers a 6 ounce senior steak. Perfect!


  1. You never cease to amaze me, George ;) .... I've never listened to Nirvana ... I clicked on your link and well, I'm listening .. what fun! You also turned me on to Peer Gynt ... love it.

    An App that I love because I can't 'hear' the lyrics any longer plus I'll hear a song and wonder what it is ...

    The App is Sound Hound .... it will listen to what's playing then give the band/singer ... name of the song AND lyrics... nice lyrics to this song... I'm listening to About a Girl ...

    ... I need an easy friend ... I do, with an ear to lend ... I don't thank you fit this shoe...

    HAhaaa.. love it... love music period and love learning new sounds that I wouldn't have thought of to listen to...

    1. Hi Carolyn,

      Thank you soooo much for your compliments!


  2. George, if you don't have it already may I suggest you download the Pandora app. Tons of music by artist, genre etc. and it's free.

    1. Hi Bill,

      I love Pandora! Use it lots.


  3. I love Nirvana, too. I still remember where I was when I heard Kurt Cobain died. So sad. If you get HBO, be sure to watch the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction special. Nirvana was inducted this year. I've watched it several times already.

    Spotify is also a great ap for free music. It use to be subscription only but now it is free.

  4. George, you blow me away. I'm so glad we got to know you for a bit while you were here and i was so sad when you stopped posting. then went from shock (heart attack) to awe (you have an apartment!!!) with the current updates. you BOUNCE! :) So glad you're sharing again. you are The inspiration.
