Myrtle Beach or Hilton Head South Carolina, Houston, Or San Diego I am debating. I’ve never visited any of these will just wait and see what unfolds! Excited and looking forward to a beautiful new year!

Any advice on which place to choose?
It doesn't matter what the other choices are. The answer is NEVER Houston.
Why? is it dangerous, or just busy?

I just wanted to attend Lakewood, I love the encouragement and positive messages. Its helped me through a lot of dark times. So I was just thinking about Houston to volunteer and be a part of something Big.

Anyway, I will be going to Myrtle Beach. The signs are everywhere. My goal is a fully furnished Condo with a balcony and an ocean view so that every morning I can see the sunrise and every evening I can watch it set over the water. Hope to explore the area, get some creative inspiration for paintings and take some amazing photos.

One thing I learned while being on this assignment here besides how fast all the coasters go...is a lot about Crypto Currency. I have a coworker that has shown me a lot... including part of his portfolio. He invested $15,000 in January of 2021, that investment has now grown into $152,000. Phenomenal and insane gains. I taught him dialysis he taught me Crypto. So now I have invested in Crypto and it is so much fun to watch!!! It is just growing and growing. :D

My choices have been XYO and Shiba Inu. While XYO is pretty pricey, Shiba Inu is at the right price to buy millions of coin. my coworker has 50,000,000 and we are waiting for it to explode. I don't have near that much but I am working on catching up. :)

Anyway... So excited for what is to come! :cloud9

Just look for yourself, it is going to be amazing....https://www.fxstreet.com/cryptocurrenci ... 2111060303

I need to get more into investing but I don’t know where to start and no, flipping concert tickets does not count.

General investment for a profit soon or investment into a retirement account? For the latter if you don’t have one through your job, I recommend looking into a Roth IRA.

I already got a 401k set up. I'm thinking investing for a profit in general.

On a side note, I got tickets to see Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey at the Wiltern in LA in March. I bought one for myself and one to try to flip to help offset the costs of tickets I've purchased this year.

Well One reliable and very simple app is Coinbase, I trust my coworker he has researched this and is very good with his money. If you join and send the link to your friends you get $10.00 and they get $10.00 in bitcoin if they invest $100.00 or more. You can link your bank account but I just don’t like doing that so I linked my Paypal account. It is easy and It’s fun and the growth is incredible. Diamond Hands! ;) Great Link on coinbase:




There is an event I’m attending in Miami next week all about Crypto. They also have virtual tix available that are only about 40.00. I’m excited and can’t wait!
Tons of education and resources!

I feel like I should share this somewhere where other people can review it.

I'm working on a setlist for Headroom Karma. I'm trying to even out the number of songs each singer sings (me, Grace, and Carson), and I'm also trying to create a balance between slow and fast and the different genres. How does this look?

8. Without You - Headroom Karma (G)
9. Familiar Taste Of Poison - Halestorm (G w/ M)
10. Daddy Lessons - Beyonce (G)
11. I Wonder Why - Headroom Karma (C)
12. Words Darker Than Their Wings - Alter Bridge (G & M)
13. Big Stars - Headroom Karma (G & M)
14. American Girl - Tom Petty (C w/ M)

Set 2:
1. If It Means A Lot To You - A Day To Remember (M & G w/ C)
2. Roadtrip Song - Headroom Karma (M w/ G & C)
3. Running Down A Dream - Tom Petty (M)
4. Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash (M & G)
5. Fade To Black - Metallica (M)
6. Highway To Hell - AC/DC (G w/ M)
7. The Waiting - Tom Petty (C w/ M)
8. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd (C)
9. Watch Over You - Alter Bridge (M & G)
10. Lola Montez - Volbeat (M)

Well, it's back. I found myself in an interesting parking dilemma. As an update, I was able to sell two tickets on Stubhub of the Halestorm/Evanescence show in Inglewood on Wednesday which means that if the 3rd ticket doesn't sell, I get to go to the show for $26.00 at a good view. Now for the parking dilemma. Parking at the venue would cost me $36.00. Parking at the casino nearby could be up to $50.00 per a conversation I had with a concierge, but they cannot confirm until Tuesday. I could park at a train station for $3.00, take a metro bus to the venue for $1.75, and can either take the Metro bus back and risk being in Inglewood at 11:30 PM in the dark, or take a Uber/Lyft for $20.00 back to the train station. Decisions, decisions.

Probably leaning towards parking at the station for $3.00, taking a Metro bus to Youtube Theater for $1.75, and taking an Uber/Lyft back to the station for $20.00. Probably a decent cost-efficient option while having some form of sense of security.

Of course, the ticket on Stubhub could sell for $95.00 and I don't have to worry about going to Inglewood and save me some cash.

Just as long as you get there early to see Plush.

Oooo, baby. Today's Evanescence and Halestorm show has had their back end seats prices pummeling hard on Stubhub. You could get a ticket at the 300 sections for under $20.00 at this time. I'm really pleased that I was able to sell the two tickets at $62.00 when I did. Still got a 3rd ticket on Stubhub listed for $70.00. If no one buys it before 3:30 PM, Stubhub removes the listing automatically and I guess that means I'm going. Still got to confirm with certain parking lots on the phone if it's ok for me to park there for like 5 hours.

Edit: Oh snaps, GA tickets are going for under $40.00 now. That's good value for those two bands. My ticket didn't get sold, so I'm still going with the assigned seat one.

Okay. Someone help me.
Who plays the solo on Before Tomorrow Comes? I've been questioning myself on this for quite some time now. I mean, it sounds like a Myles solo, but then, when they play it live, Mark plays it. I just want to know for peace of mind.

There isn't really a solo in Before Tomorrow Comes. I haven't heard the studio version, but I doubt Myles would be able to play what Mark plays on live versions. Plus, wasn't Blackbird his only solo on Blackbird?
