Tribute to Kevin

My friend Todd composed and recorded this beautiful musical tribute to Kevin. You can listen as you read the thoughts I shared at his funeral. A Memory of Kevin Don’t ask me why, but when I think of Kevin, the memories that come to me are often the silly ones. Like trying to decipher the difference between strange and weird...

Another weekend is here

This is going to be a recharge weekend. I think I’ll spend some time scanning old high school pictures for the Kevin photo gallery and work on some projects I have been putting off. I did finally give up on Comcast. Yesterday, we switched our cable TV service over to RCN (formerly StarPower). Miraculously, even though RCN uses the exact...

Announcing the Rushhouse!

After living in the new house for almost a year, I’ve finally put the finishing touches on the audio system. We have speaker wiring in 8 rooms, but haven’t been able to wire up all of the speakers because we needed an impedance matcher to avoid blowing up the receiver. Well, we’ve had the impedance matcher in a box for...

The History of the Rushmobile

Back in 1980, after I had recently moved to Buffalo, a new friend introduced me to Rush. Very soon after getting into Permanent Waves, I went to my first ever rock concert – Rush, of course. Then came Moving Pictures around the same time a became close friends with Kevin. I hooked him on Rush and proceeded to do the...
