Music in 2011

I realize I don’t post much anymore, although I try to post baby pics and the occasional opinion on Facebook and Twitter.  So this will seem even more random than if I had five or six Braves or Harding posts as a cushion.  With that caveat, I’ll say that 2011 was a pretty good year […]
