Well, I hope my two newly-written posts were OK and of some interest to regular readers. I’ve really tried to rest my left arm, ever since injuring it on 1/29/13 by spraining my left bicep. I’ve done my darndest to “take care of it” – by resting it etc. I also went and had it x-ray’d – to ensure it wasn’t broken; I went and saw a new Dr. who requested an MRI be taken of it; I’m OK with that as long as the insurance pays!
Still, my primary Dr. said it may take a while for it to heal. There’s no doubt it feels better already, but I need the left arm to be a bit stronger than it is. I still really can’t lift much with it.
Been learning the ins-and-outs of Blu-ray, with it’s nice quality and ‘funky’ “loading” process – it’s odd when a disc warns me that it takes several minutes to “Load” all the features of a BD ( = Blu-ray Disc ). Also, with the new TV, it’s obvious when something being broadcast isn’t high-definition – it just looks blurry! And, yes, I bought the under $100 Blu-ray player because I could see that it played Super Audio CD’s! I figure the more lasers in my home that can read SA-CD’s, the better. Plus, I generally like new formats, anyway.
I’m still a week too early to give you list of all of my music purchases for this month. I’m still very much into 45’s – but I am not forgetting that I have lots of LP’s to sort / file etc.
Sad news: Second Spin, Santa Monica, CA – out of business.
