It's that time again when we review the past week and assess our blog quality. Well, I fell short of the 14 post goal. That's bummer. It was attainable but I just didn't put out the effort when it became inconvenient. However, I also didn't give into the temptation of tossing up some blog fluff. I'm satisfied with this week's posts in terms of quality.
But we did lean a bit hard on music related birth dates. Eh, that's fine with me. It's not as if we arranged a whole bunch of our favorite musical inspirations to be born in mid-September. ;-)
Another disappointment was the inability to put up a Spooky Sunday post. As I declared last week, we'll be migrating the theme to Terror Tuesday. Hopefully, with a lighter social schedule, I'll be more reliable in bringing the horror to you all. With Halloween coming up, now is the proper time to be diligent about ghostly delights.

Let's look at this weeks posts.
We had a bunch of music celebrations including the birth dates of Cannonball Adderley, B.B. King, Hank Williams, Anna Netrebko, and Gustav Holst. Yeah, a bit of jazz, blues, country, opera, and orchestra. That's some variety!
Our art review schedule was attained this week. Our three posts were Koplin Del Rio's exhibit of DJ Halls "Kodak Moments", Thinkspace's group show of works by Aaron Nagel, Jeff Ramirez, and Jennifer Nehrbass, and, finally, LaBasse Project's display of Yoskay Yamamoto's "Picking Up Where We Left Off." Very good stuff!!!
Friday Flowers were Osa Pulchra. Then we visited an Orchid Show at the South Coast Botanic Garden.
Other locations that we visited were Wyland's Whaling Wall #31 "The Gray Whale Migration" in Redondo Beach and then Bergamot Station in Santa Monica where we observed an saucy image of Daphne Blake exposing herself in a most unladylike manner. ;-)
Yeah, I missed my goal of 14 posts and failed on Spooky Sunday, but, overall, it was a fun week. I hope you all enjoyed it. Here's our weird image of the week.
