Been nearly a month since my last newsletter. Been a rough past couple of weeks wiht my tenant turnovers up at Temple U. Worst weeks of my year work wise is the last week of July and first week of August. Went relatively smoothly this year. Next off to Ireland/Scotland/Britain for a family cruise vacation.
Besides work and some beach time, I did have a good run with some concerts. Saw Neil Young (review here).. Akso was able to catch The Foo Fighters (review) and the Eagles (review). What I found most interesting of the three shows was how Dave Grohl kept telling you how long he was going to play while the other two bands did not mention it at all, yet FF only played 2:45 while the other two artists played over three hours without mentioning the show length at all. Of course, FF definitely rocked harder than the other two. Neil Young has become incredibly polotical. I included some of his lyrics at the bottom for those that are interested.
Hope everyone is enjoying there summer. - Mark
