    I'm guessing this was Glen Campbell's top hit:

  • Glen Campbell, what a coincidence, I watched a video of him playing the Wiliam Tell Overture on guitar on the weekend. He has some mad skills on the guitar.

  • 1981 – Roger Federer, Swiss tennis professional

    At a young age I lived in Qatar with my family. I had an older brother who worked as a ball boy for a tennis tournament that Roger played in. Its insane how accurate and powerful their serves can be. You definitely did not want to get hit by one of his serves. It was quite the experience to even be in the crowd watching Roger compete.

  • My Dad was born in 1930 and later in life formed dementia. He would ask me if the Zeppelins were still flying in the sky.

    He was around 8 or 9 years old when they were high in the sky. They must have been some sight!

    I'm in blue jeans and a polo shirt. The polo shirt is by choice; a lot of people wear t-shirts in our IT office. I like to "raise the bar" just slightly.

  • Happy Birthday Dustin Hoffman and Roger Federer!

    That recipe does sound good! Even better that it involves bacon!

    Inspirobot I will not resist the Internet since without it I'd be jobless and also bored for that matter...

  • QotD is so true.  I once went for a job interview in the 90's and the interviewer (IT Manager of an airline company) had on proper suit, but with one of those pink panther leaning against a lamppost ties.  He also kept trying to be funny (and failing miserably).  Thankfully didn't get that job!

    He was the most amazing musician, before he found fame in his own right he was a session musician working with virtually every major artist / band that was around and he played by ear - let him hear the song and he would instantly create the most fantastic guitar track.

    I'm not a big "country music" fan but I was fortunate to see him on his final tour, he was sadly ravaged by Alzheimer's but with a guitar in his hands he was still an absolute magician!
