I made a quick visit over to another blog site that I like, Immortal Jukebox.

I was reminded of a band that I liked, but kind of lost track of for a bit. Life gets busy, sometimes, you know?
The Strypes, out of Cavan Ireland, are a four piece band that really know how to rock. Here’s a video of their cover of Bo Diddley’s “You Can’t Judge a Book By the Cover”.
It’s an extremely well done video, and I’ve always loved the song. Personally, I think The Strypes do it justice.
The Gypsy Hiker is now in Nepal. Since the name Kathmandu always stirs up images, I wanted to share his blogpost on his visit there. In a previous post, the Gypsy Hiker was invited to a local wedding in Kathmandu. The best times come about unexpectedly, when traveling, and I have also been shown incredible hospitality, by complete strangers, when on the road.
The Federal Motor Truck Company started as Bailey Motor Truck in 1910. It’s final truck was sold in the United States in 1959.
In all, over 160,000 Federals were manufactured. As of 2004, there are 183 known survivors.
