  • The year 1987 in music was astounding, yet most would argue with you if you said so…
    If you were into pop, soul, dance, heavy rock or glam-metal, even thrash; you cannot deny the importance of the flood of music that was released. In this blog, I will remind you of the incredible albums that came out that year, since half of the releases are celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year! I’ll add several albums in each of my blog entries as we go through the rest of the year, to jog a memory or put a smile on your face as you recall buying it on cassette (maybe CD or vinyl) and playing it until it sounded horrible and you needed to buy another, to replace it! Feel free to add your comments or memories of whichever one clicked with you! I’d love to read your memories!

  • Once again, it's best not to impersonate a cop because the person you pull over might be an actual cop. Brandon Hurley decided it would be fun to pretend to be a Louisville, Kentucky officer and pull over a driver, asking the other driver if he knew how fast they were going. Not only did the other driver know how fast he was going, but he also knew that the 24-year-old was not a real cop...because he was part of Louisville PD and told Hurley so. That's when the fake officer left the scene. The unidentified cop got Hurley's license plate and he was arrested for impersonating a peace officer and wanton endangerment.

  • Ugh.
    It never fails. With all of my environmental allergies that I have had since I was little, every mid-spring and fall harvest season, I get sick. The allergies start because of the growing pollen and mold left behind in the grass after the winter thaw, and then the harvesting of dry corn and beans scatter so much dust from the fields it looks like fog, my defenses can't take it. Then, I catch a cold or respiratory flu because my body can't fight it off, being already weakened.

  • The stage beckons...
    When I was in high school, I was in all the plays and musicals. I was/am an actor. My whole life I pretended to be other people I'd seen on TV or read about. I was bitten by the acting bug (Thespianactorus Onstageus) when I was the lonely drifter in "Stone Soup", in third grade.
