What is poker?

As in most games, the objective of poker is to win. Whether you play for fun or for real money, poker uses your ingenuity and your ability to think.
There are many variations of poker, but all follow the same basic principles:

  • The players are a central pot containing tokens representative of the virtual or real money.
  • It distributes cards to the players (this is called a hand). Sometimes some or all of these cards may be face down.
  • The bets are made in relation to the value of the cards obtained during the betting rounds.
  • In the late rounds of betting, the winner is the player with the best hand or the last player remaining after all others have folded.

Whatever the type of poker you want to play, it is essential to understand the logic of the card game and know the hand rankings .

This is a difficult subject, everyone is so different.  To one person joy can come so easily than with someone else, but yet that same person can experience sadness just as fast as the joy, or vica versa.  We all experience emotion and wear emotion differently.

Case in point; I am very exaggerated, not always, but when it comes to new things or options or possibilities, actually it is with most things.  I get excited very easily and sometimes can be disappointed but usually the dissapointment fades after a while.  Now on the other side of that there is my wife, Jen.  She is not exaggerated except for on occasion.  Although she is not overbearing outwardly excited she is excited, just wearing it differently.  Of course I mistake that sometimes as her not liking whatever it is that is in question.  Neither one of us is wrong or right, just wonderfully different.

I am sitting here on the couch while Jen is playing our new music for our friend visiting from Texas.  Listening to the music without trying to practice it, figure it out again or any kind of  agenda is nice.  Whilst typing I am just listening and reliving the emotions we were feeling and going through when we wrote the songs.  There were a lot of emotions that Tim and I were experiencing at that time, it wasn’t long ago in time, but that place in our life feels like forever ago. Of course it could be right around the corner, either way we were feeling so tapped out with the thoughts of who we were or trying to figure out what “kind” of music we wanted to write.  That’s how we started… then… we just started writing and singing and it just came naturally.  We didn’t try and coax it to be what we thought it should be, we just did it.  It was an amazing feeling.  It was an experience I will always remember.  There were definitely times when I felt like I couldn’t write words or melodies to save my life but it was ok in the end because Tim was there to take up the slack when I felt like quitting and likewise with him.  We were a team and we banded together again.

It feels like sometimes you have to remind yourself to feel certain emotions, to push through the crap and find what it is you want to say.  There is always something to say, even when you do it quietly.  Jen once told me after watching a movie with a great love story that sometimes we forget to act like we are in love.  Sometimes life happens and I forget to create opportunities for great emotions to be experienced like LOVE, AFFECTION, LAUGHTER, JOY, KINDNESS, GRACE.  I think I am doing better, at least I know now what I can lack if I am not careful.

So… happy emotion hunting.

The Swing

So I am back at it…

After the three weeks of writing and recording I am finding it is difficult to get back into the whole internet social networking. It is not that I don’t enjoy doing it, I just fell out of the habit of it. Which, on one hand sucks because I had become so accustom to tweeting, blogging, posting, sharing, and any other way to stay in contact that it was almost second nature. When something would happen, or after a show I would blog or post pics or tag pics or just send out tweets about the show. Now I am back at square one relearning to some degree. During the writing and recording we were spending so much time stirring our creativity with new songs and new riffs that we went AWOL with the internet side of things. So on the other hand I was glad to put all of my creativity to writing and recording and it was a FULL three weeks, let me tell you.

what'd you do?!

It is weird though, how I feel with all of the social networking. I feel like I am always waiting for some amazing thing to happen before I write about it. Not sure exactly what I am waiting for or what I am looking for but life is too short to wait on something “amazing.” To be completely honest those kind of things happen everyday if I am willing to see it. Some days, I am more blind than others but I have been able to find amazing things in a lot of “normal” things. (whew!!!! that was almost a rant)

Anyway, I am getting back into the swing of things so keep reading and keep posting.


Remember to listen to our Graffiti Track.  Combo of all the new songs!!!

I asked my mother in law who was playing in the super bowl and she answered, “The Who”. I love that answer!

I really had no idea who was playing in the super bowl this year!  My question was actually intended to find out what football teams were playing and when she answered with “The Who” I busted out laughing and told her that was the best answer I’ve ever heard.  And I already knew The Who was playing the super bowl!  That stuff I know, but I still don’t know what teams played or who won…

Anyways, Super Bowl Sunday is always a good excuse to drink beer and eat buffalo wings with good friends…and that’s enough for me.

The commercials probably weren’t great, again.

DIG OUR WAY OUT!! (5/5 Blog)


Two days before we are supposed to leave for Atlanta and 12 inches of snow falls!  Can you believe that?  We’ve been snowed in for a day  and a half here in Asheville NC.  The temperature today is over 40% and it’s beginning to melt but the forecast for tonight is calling for 16% temperatures!  Of course it’s all going to freeze over again so we’re getting the van loaded with all our gear today and then tomorrow we’re going to play by ear.  We might be facing a 2 hr delay but we’ll get there!  The irony of when and how things happen in this life is unreal sometimes.  Now we have to dig our way out!  Here’s our tour van under snow…
