Dancing News Anchors

WGN-TV weekend anchors Robert Jordan and Jackie Bange do a little dance number each Saturday and Sunday night during their telecast's first commercial break. Word is that it started out as a short 10-second dance, but now they have choreographed it into the full 2:40 of the break.

Hagia Sophia Party!

The Hagia Sophia project took about a year to complete at a cost of about $2500, but it is finally done. My dad was so proud that he threw a party for me with every relative, neighbor, family friend, and old musician buddy he could think of. I wish I had taken more pictures, but here are some.

The outside of the Hagia Sophia.


The inside.



Tyler and Joey accidentally wore the same thing. How embarrassing.



The oldsters played music in the basement...


while the youngsters smoked cigarettes in the garage.




There was a giant cake...


...and I tried posing with it to show just how large it was....

...but I think I only succeeded in making my head look huge.


It was the best party ever (thanks Dad!) There was even a Dobro player! video
