As most of you probably already know, a great comedic mind passed away. George Carlin.
Though many comedians had some form of influence on me through the years this man always had it.
I grew up loving comedians like Bill Cosby, Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, Jim Carrey, Jonathan Winters, Don Rickles, Dennis Leary, Billy Connely and so on and so on. These guys were great but I liked them in different phases of my life. The only constant was George. He always seemed to be right on the mark. If this name means nothing to you I suggest you google “Seven Dirty Words” and get enlightened now. His political and social humour was cutting, insightful and always hilarious. He was also the comedian that showed me how humour can be dark and still lift our spirits.
Life is a funny thing even at it’s worst.
We know that all good things come to an end but our icons sometimes make us forget that they won’t break the rule. So here’s to George Carlin. Thank you for the laughs, the lessons and the list.

As you know Ramon is in the midst of many deadlines and the extremely disheartening landlord dispute. Luckily Ramon is tenacious and whatever the out come he will land on his feet. To pass the time I submit for your perusal a video link to a band called “Chattahoochee Payload”.
The band has a few guys from my hometown so send them some love by checking out their you tube link. Up their hits!
