The following is my written review of "Risk Everything" featuring Jim Peterik (Survivor, The Ides of March etc.) and Marc Scherer - the album is courtesy of Frontier Records (2015).

Jim and Marc are co-writers on some songs but Jim wrote most of the songs while Marc provides lead vocals on all the tracks, indeed this album "showcases" his amazing voice to great effect! I include an as honest as possible subjective rating of the album and each of the songs.

1) "Risk Everything" is a song about love that will risk everything to defend
whomever and whatever is believed in. 8/10

2) "Chance of a Lifetime" is of two people meeting, the sparks between them, and facing the risk of taking a chance on each other. 8/10

3) "Cold Blooded" is an ode to love gone wrong, being betrayed by a "cold blooded" lover. 10/10

4) "Desperate in Love" is about how desperation in love can overwhelm our common sense or caution even if we've every reason to show restraint, especially after having our hearts broken in the past. 8/10

5) "Thee Crescendo" is a love song to life, to all the young lovers, it is very unusual and brilliantly written and it appears to be like a hymn to God. 10/10

6) "The Dying of the Light" sounds like it could be a regret about the shortness of life and the nearness of death, perhaps a eulogy for someone who has died? It starts with a beautiful guitar solo punctuated by drums and it relates of life's brevity and racing against the effects of time and aging and circumstances.

7) "How long is a moment?" has a soaring instrumental intro before Marc sings, he reminding me of Dennis DeYoung of Styx, and is a song of questions about love and whether it will be for all time. 10/10

8) "Brand New Heart" is a pounding, optimistic, rocker about having a "brand new" heart after a time of "going through the motions" of living. 10/10

9) "Broken Home" is a somber song, with beautiful vocals, about a couple that is no longer in love and the effects of their anger on their children. 10/10

10) "Milestones" is a tribute to a long lived relationship that is thriving through the good and bad times as both of the lovers persevere and never quit completely. 8/10

11) "Independence Day" is about breaking away from a dream that is about to end and celebrating the resulting independence. 9/10

I give the album itself 10/10.

It's been a while since I last posted here...and this post is mainly to say that I'm moving from the Falls into Penticton to be closer to work.
Have a great weekend!

Good morning from the Falls.   On days off, I did some shopping yesterday after work.  

Finally I have a replacement tablet but not an RCA tablet, a Samsung tablet.  Hopefully it will be an improvement but when I started up the tablet there were issues right away...Seriously, are tech people just not able to think from the perspective of those who are buying and using a product for the first time?

The issue is that it seems that immediately it wanted to set up profile information including a wireless connection which was a no-go as I don't have wireless where I am.  I basically connect wherever wireless is offered publicly, after all why should I pay a provider for 24 hour a day service when arguably I don't need it?

So, I will go to the library to connect to their wireless and walk the "Samsung tightrope"....Samsung, already you're starting to look like RCA to me...and that isn't a good thing....

It is an improvement over the RCA but both companies need to smarten up and take better care of their customers and be more responsive to trouble issues.

Good day from the Falls...my folks returned from their jaunt to Hawaii and apparently had a pleasant time aside from the weird and hard to decipher car they had rented...I guess one cannot trust the rental agencies nor the automakers?  It apparently had no manual with it...

In other words, the auto rental agencies seem to be saying: "Here you go, a car for you to try and figure out without our help plus we'll charge you more for the 'privilege'..."

A bit of a rough day, personally, yesterday - one of those "dark days of the soul" - things did work out to an extent, therefore proving that "worry' is not helpful....

An extra shift tonight...

I've been getting "reacquainted" with "Due South" the series which was a landmark series, at least partly Canadian, which used humor, quirky ideas, and drama to entertain those who watched it.  

It isn't as creative as Heartland though - there is too much emphasis on the crime in the show compared to the quirky Canadian versus the cynical American that was the focus of the show.

Maybe they just didn't have as good writers as Heartland does?

Another now famous actor that I recognized this time around in a different episode was Ryan Phillippe as a young boy whose dad is a former criminal who apparently does one more crime before Fraser "talks him down from the ledge"...

Of course, Leslie Nielson made appearances in the show as a veteran Mountie and friend/colleague of Fraser's dad.

Listening to "TNT" an album by Tanya Tucker...another one by Toronto may follow...Well, Saint Patrick's Day is past for another year and one is just a bit older...Heartland is going into a 10th season so that is great news!

Those two albums, I donated them to the local thrift shop, so far they haven't been sold to anyone. Not many people bother with vinyl records any more I guess.

Good morning from the Falls...a lonnnggg night in Foods...Church yesterday...Work went a bit better though I was given word that my box count is too low...I must think of ways to figure out how to increase my "boxes per hour" or BPH.  I'm not the only one who was talked to about their box count rate...

What did we ever do before sunglasses were invented?  This morning I didn't get them out and I found that the sun was dangerously bright and unfortunately any tinting on my windshield is largely ineffective...The glasses turned out to be in my jacket pocket, the one I couldn't reach once my seat belt was in place...I managed to get back here without any problems aside from a vehicle that arguably was "tailgating" me...

Ah well...

For a change...a phone call interrupting me wasn't from a fraudulent telemarketer or scam artist but it was my brother from the coast, checking it to see how I am and to say hello...when I realized it was him, I wasn't annoyed like I was when the phone initially disturbed me...but I think my annoyance was apparent in my initial response... ;-)

We talked a little while about different subjects.

It's unfortunate that it seems the only practical (and temporary?) solution to annoying phone calls is to change the phone number and/or ask for an unlisted number (more money to an irresponsible and unaccountable phone company)....Ah well, good night from the beautiful Okanagan region!

Thank you Heather.  It was nice and peaceful when I pulled off the road to take these photos.  Traffic can be heavy even on the side roads so I like to pull off the road and relax, especially when the weather is gorgeous!
