Random Encounter at the Miami Airport Marriott 02APR2011 with the bands “America” and “Lovin’ Spoonful”


[Mar 31 – Apr 03, 2011 – Miami, FL, US] I had another random encounter with history. I was at the bar at the Miami Airport Marriott in Florida and guess who decides to have a few drinks at the bar? The members of America and Lovin’ Spoonful!!!

That was amazing. As I was posting picture to FaceBook at that moment, Mark Hennings commented on my photo and asked me to ask them the meaning of “…Seasons crying no despair Alligator lizards in the air, in the air…”, so I did. I asked Willie Leacox of America and got the answer! But not tellin’. Okay, I’ll give you part of the answer – it’s the imagery. It’s all about the imagery…

Oh and then more history with the Lovin’ Spoonful… On of the tidbits I learned was that Joe Butler has an apartment in New York City – he lent the apartment to John Lennon and Yoko Ono way back when.

Nothing like touching history!


Miami, FL 2010


[Sep 16-19, 2010 – Miami, FL, Us] Going to the Conrad Hilton in Miami… Well, the new tram in D concourse (American Airlines) is now open. Cool – but if you do go to MIA, in D concourse, only take the tram if it is 2 or more stops – otherwise, it makes no sense to take the tram (other than just doing it for fun :). As for the Conrad Hilton in Miami – waaaay over rated. It should just be a “Hilton” – it doesn’t deserve to be classified as a “Conrad” Hilton… As for the view, there is a huge apartment/pad/condo complex in the way of the view so it way really nothing special at all…
