General Eclectic played a lot of incredible gigs including clubs, colleges, outdoor venues, private parties, live radio and television. We even played as a duo at a campfire at the Petrified Sea Gardens in Saratoga Springs, New York. We were also scheduled to play at a warehouse in Troy that was located by the river, […]

I was incredibly lucky to have played music in the 1980s and early 90s with a wide variety of fine musicians, so I thought I would write about some of them. During our time with the band, Paul and I worked with four different drummers. Charles Ross, who was going by Chuck then, was the […]

We had done a lot of work over the summer trying to make the trailer livable, but there was still a long way to go when Paul moved out. I was also facing being a single mom of two for the first time. Although, I had done most of the caretaking for our children, I was […]

Howdy, hope 2021 will be better than 2020, but it’s a long way to go to get back to normal. I promise no politics, no this party/that party, no this president/that president, no liberal/conservative. This concentrates on COVID, going forward, it’s up to US to bring back normalcy, for YOU to get off your ass […]

Now that Paul and I were reunited, we focused even more on our music. We had always written songs together­, and I had missed that in addition to missing him. We both had gained a different perspective having had the time to think about our music as individuals for the first time since we had […]

We took a circuitous route through the northern part of the US on our way to Oregon. Paul and I didn’t believe in taking a direct route if it could be avoided. We knew that the best sights and experiences were mostly to be had away from any tourists. It was on back roads where […]

I don’t know about any of you, but I find it a little hard to talk about fashion trends right now. I’ll be honest, I haven’t switched out my summer clothes for winter yet this year because I barely switched them out last year. My closet doesn’t need to be yelling “tres chic!” when your […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR! While there’s no guarantee 2021 will be better than 2020, we all pray it CAN’T be any worse. At minimum we all at least know SOMEONE who tested positive for COVID, and unfortunately many experienced the pain and suffering of a friend or loved one who passed due to (at least in […]

Paul and I were both excited to take our kids across the country again. Justin was now old enough to remember this trip and to be more actively involved in the planning, and Jessie always liked to travel. I was always prepared for a road trip with plenty of things on hand to keep them […]

We were settling into life in the city pretty well by now when Paul’s mother died. After Paul’s father had died, we had moved back east to be closer to our families and had gotten to know Cathy pretty well. She and I’d had a rough beginning. She was an alcoholic and, when I was […]
