The Boss

For anyone who has told me that Bruce can't play guitar, I give you Bruce WAILING on guitar:


Also, most people know how Bruce earned the nickname "The Boss." In the early days, when the E Street Band played gigs, Bruce collected the money and distributed it to the band. If someone had a question, they were told to "ask The Boss."

THIS is why he's still The Boss:

And sometimes technology is used for good :)

This is from "The Daily What" -- one of my favorite blogs:

Heartwarming Human Interest Story of the Day:
 - Heartwarming Human Interest Story of the Day

Four days ago, Reddit user SoundCheckBrew turned to the message boards in search of help restoring a weathered newspaper photo of his great-grandparents and his grandfather, taken shortly after the family returned to the U.S. during World War II. A handful of Photoshop-savvy Redditors volunteered to help, and in a post earlier today, SoundCheckBrew was ecstatic:
“This picture looks amazing! I had to take a moment to really take in what you did! … Thank you Reddit and Photoshoppers for restoring my Grandfathers picture! Here he is with the final framed and printed copy! … He was teary eyed.”


I know a few people who can relate to this right now:

Dr. Mom

This is how awesome my mom is: I have been really sick for awhile now. Finally found out that I have an acute mono infection (which is what my mom said I had in the first place and two other doctors didn't see.) I have been trying to go in to work but some days it proves to be too difficult. I had to call out today to work from home and was just thinking about how I'm out of bottled water and how I'm going to run out of tissues before the end of the day. Then I remembered that my mom left a huge pack of bottled waters in the trunk of my car when I was home last. I went down to my car, opened my trunk and grabbed the water. As I was closing the trunk, I saw a huge box of tissues, which my mom ALSO put in my trunk for me. How could she have known?!

In any case, it took all of my energy to make that trip downstairs and back, and if you know me, you know that's not me.

I'm following mom's orders from now on. I wish she could be my primary care physician.
