Santana Fun Facts

In honor of Carlos Santana's 64th birthday, and because he's our Friday feature, I thought I'd share with you some Santana Fun Facts, in no particular order. 1. Santana played Woodstock before their first album came out. Santana says he was on acid during the performance, and remembers none of it. 2. Two early Santana members, Greg Rolie and Neal Schon, left the band and formed Journey. Greg's the guy that sang both Black Magic Woman and Evil Ways. 3. Carlos is on the Board of Directors of Casa Noble Tequila. 4. Carlos owns four upscale restaurants named Maria Maria after one of his songs, three in California, one in Austin, Texas. 5. In appreciation for a guitar amplifier he built for him, Carlos Santana bought Howard Dumble a house. 6. He has a line of women's footwear. Carlos shoes include designs with names like Roulette, Baubles, and Bohemia. 7. He was #15 on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Best Guitarists. 8. Born in Mexico, he has been a naturalized U.S. citizen since 1965. 9. He proposed to his current wife, drummer Cindy Blackman, at a concert in Tinley Park, IL last year. 10. He has an entire room in his house just for T-shirts. Santana, flying and seeing colors at Woodstock, 1969

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm.  I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...
