  1. Some basics:

    Nine innings in a regular game - no ties in baseball

    Games are not timed, they go on for as long as it takes for a team to have more runs than the opponent

    Nine players are in the field on defense

    Visiting team bats first

    A run is scored when a batter touches all of the bases including home plate

    The batting team keeps going until there are three outs

    If the home team has the lead after the visiting team reaches three outs in the ninth inning the game is over

    If you digest that, I can give you more if you are interested.....and there is a lot more.

  2. Marlam, if you don't mind sharing, what brand and or model camera do you use? My camera went bouncing down a set of cement stairs like a Slinky. I would like to buy a new one without going too crazy on the price. I'd like one that is good for taking photos at concerts - cell phones take horrible photos under the bright lights of a show. But it also has to be a model that is allowed into a concert venue.

    I've got a few photos taken with my cell phone that I'd like to share. Somehow I was able to get a doe to pose for me :-).

  5. I too watched "Sonic Highways" - pretty good.

    Last weekend I saw "20,000 Days on Earth" in the theater. Here's a quick synopsis:

    Drama and reality combine in a fictitious 24 hours in the life of musician and international cultural icon Nick Cave. With startlingly frank insights and an intimate portrayal of the artistic process, the film examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit.

    I did not know much about Nick Cave before seeing the film, may have given a quick listen - a recommendation from our Strider. I am now a fan, been listening to his music all week, trying to decide which records I'd like to buy.

  9. Hope your show was awesome, jb126! :)

    It was, thanks! How are you and your family? Hope things are getting better and better.

    The concert - It was a gorgeous night, Jack and his band played for about 2 1/2 hours. The stage was set on top of the bullpens at Fenway Park, the audience was seated in the bleachers. I thought they sounded great, he has a wonderful band. High energy, very entertaining.

  12. I saw Sir Elton last night and as usual he did not disappoint. I have to say I'm a bit biased....he was my first " real" rock concert in 1974, and I have not missed a chance to see him every time he comes to town.

    Excellent sound , band and staging.

    One thing I will say that he has done from day one that is nice imo....he makes a point to approach every single side of his stage and acknowledge everyone - even those seated behind the stage.

    Elton was one of my favorites growing up too. After not seeing him live since the early 90s, I went to a show last year, not expecting to love it. I was proven wrong. He was fantastic.

    He signed autographs during the "encore pause" at the show I went to as well. I've talked about it a lot - I had never seen it done and was impressed. Maybe EJ is not such a diva after all!
