Steve Hackett, revisiting Genesis, at Cropredy festival

I swear Steve Hackett hasn't aged a week since I last saw him live, and no, it wasn't a few months ago... it was the summer of 1979, at Leicester University, as my sister reminded me last week. He and his band took the stage on the first day of the Cro...

On Miss L’s most recent trip to Disneyland, I sent a present along with her: Disney’s PhotoPass+ card. On recent trips she’d wanted to take photos with every character she met, so I thought that she’d definitely get some use out of it on a trip with Grandma & Papa L. If you purchase...
