And a great conversation with Susan regarding the live entertainment:
S: I like this song, but this is an awful cover
J: This isn't a cover, that is Matthew Good on stage
S: I expected him to be older, and he sounds way different than he did in the Patrick Swayze movie. He's really good for a blind guy though.
J: Are you thinking of Jeff Heally?
