Welcome! "The Evening Blues" is a casual community diary (published Monday - Friday, 8:00 PM Eastern) where we hang out, share and talk about news, music, photography and other things of interest to the community.  

Just about anything goes, but attacks and pie fights are not welcome here.  This is a community diary and a friendly, peaceful, supportive place for people to interact.  

Everyone who wants to join in peaceful interaction is very welcome here.

Get Well Soon, joe shikspack!

Hey everybody.  I'm filling in for joe tonight and here to send him a get well soon card from all of us and to let you know that Evening Blues might be on a short hiatus while joe recovers.  Unfortunately, he's got a serious case of the New Year's Blues!  Actually his spirits are pretty good right now but he landed in the hospital on Saturday with what seems to be a problem with gallstones/pancreatitis -- no definite diagnosis yet.  So he's spending his New Year's in the hospital where he says he is getting excellent care and is feeling much better today than last night and earlier today.  

While he is recovering, we'll either arrange to cover his diaries for him or put the series on hiatus, whatever joe thinks is best.  So if you don't see Evening Blues for a bit, stay tuned as he will be back soon, or if you see it being published by someone else, you'll know why.

So here are a few blues tunes for you for New Year's and all of our best wishes go out to you and yours for a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

P.S. When I heard from joe this afternoon, he said that he will try to stop by in the comments tonight depending on how he is feeling.  He has a laptop there and connectivity but understandably the meds, IV, his condition and all of that make it tentative but he'll read the comments when he can.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
