STARTIN’ THE WEEK WITH A BANG…OR AT LEAST TRYING TO!

Dragged out from a weekend that featured playing a job in the central time zone on the same night that we moved our clocks forward by one hour, I rolled into this morning feeling more than a bit behind the proverbial 8-Ball, but it actually turned out OK.  The main reason was that the studio was cold today due to the clock on the thermostat not adjusting it’s automatic settings to turn the heat on as normal.  Oh well, you adapt and move on!
