Neil Young's Fork in the Road

Just sat down to listen to Neil Young's new album Fork in the Road just released this week. I have been a huge Neil Young fan probably my whole life. My mother first infused me with his melodic voice when I was just a toddler with the sounds of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Since then, Neil has always kept me coming back for more. With Heart of Gold, I fell in love all over again. The reviews have been great for this latest release and I can't wait to hear how he is going to seduce me even more...

I found these great pic's of Neil Young & David Crosby from back in day from their early performances at the Troubadour and the Roxy.

Balboa Island

We recently went to Balboa Island and today is one of those days that I wish I could spent the afternoon there. If you haven't been, it's a tiny little island off the coast of Newport Beach, CA. What I love about it, is the pier on the beach, the architecture of the row houses all beautifully designed and the frozen banana's shop where you can actually get a piece of frozen cheesecake on a stick! There is also a ferris wheel at the dock of the island with a very good view of the shore from the top seat.
