Sometimes one needs to share a thought or passing notion unrelated to the internet, making money, etc. Sometimes one simply needs to "shoot the breeze".

Thanks Cheryl posting your comments. I love War and Carlos Santana. Back in my day that was the music. The American culture was changing and music was at the forefront of that "revolution".

Sly and the family Stone, Mandrill, and of course Motown. But Salsa has always been in my heart being Puerto Rican. I was born and raised in Spanish Harlem NYC and grew up with the music we kids used to call "Spanish" music. It wasn't until the late 1960's and 1970's that a new sound, a mixture of African, Cuban and urban Puerto Rican music fused together to become what is known as Salsa.

That show on PBS, which can be seen online at [url]http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/latinmusicusa/[/url], really thought me a lot about this fusion.

I hope this was not to boring but music is my love, it's what keeps me sane.

It's a beautiful Saturday here in Virginia. Today is the day we Americans remember what happened 9 years ago and we honor the memory of those that were senselessly murdered.

But can you imagine what went through the minds of the passengers on flight 93? After learning that two air planes had already been hijacked and flown into buildings and realizing that they were the next airplane that was about to meet the same fate. Rather than die like victims they chose to be remembered as heroes. Instead of letting the hijackers take hold of and fly the airplane in what many think would have been the Capital, they over powered them and diverted the airplane. They knew that they were going to die but elected to save many other lives and to preserve our nations capital.

I know that Apsense is a global community, and I am very happy to be a part of it and to meet and interact with some swell people from around the world. However, I am very proud to be American. This nation is great, and I love it.

God Bless America.

I am glad you posted this. When networking in the 'real world' conversations are rarely dominated by business. The point is to make friends and get to know each other.

Now that I have made that point, I'm very much into 'Tejano' music such as Los Lonely Boys, and Los Lobos. and the Latin flavored sounds of War. But when talking 'salsa' There a group that is more modern what I call 'techno-salsa' called B-Tribe that I love. you can also find a lot of Latin flavor in the guitar work of Al Dimeola.

Thanks for sharing something about YOU!

Last night I watched a program on PBS that took me down memory lane. It was about Latin music, the music we call Salsa. I grew up in the neighborhood where this music was born. It was awesome to see old home movies of the Fania Allstars coming together for the first time.

Any Saleros out there?
