Making Memories

Last week I told you about the upcoming Malt Shop Memories Street Dance and live broadcast at KCMR coming up on Friday night and I know you are all waiting with baited breath to hear all about it.  In a word----FABULOUS! Jeni of Jeni Eats and Donna of stopped off to pick me up to go down to the studio to join in the fun.  We saw lots of familiar faces including Bill Schickel, general manager at KCMR and Cynthia Tompkins whose show I get to be a part of on Tuesday … [Read more...]

Come on –Get Happy

I have been obsessed with this song lately but then yesterday I stumbled across this video and I became even more obsessed!  It was made in honor of World Down Syndrome Day (March 21) and is so fun I had to share it.  I was a bit disturbed that the spelling of syndrome was incorrect until my friend, Susi, told me it was the German spelling and that it was obviously filmed in Germany.  I was clueless and thanks to Susi now I know!!!  By the way, today is Susi's birthday so show her some love by … [Read more...]

3 Words and a Song

I like the idea of not making New Year's Resolutions that I won't stick to.  They never seem to last and I just end up feeling like somewhat of a failure so when I read about selecting key words to focus on during the year a few years ago I was on board. The originator was blogger Chris Brogan who is somewhat of a legend in the blogger world.  When I read about his idea for the first time I loved it and jumped on the Chris Brogan bandwagon for choosing words for the upcoming year.  If you want … [Read more...]

Sunday Miracles

I found this video and to me it just shows the love that we can share with each other---young and old---if we only take the time to try to reach out to others. This woman is amazing to me---she continues to work with Gladys until she responds.   Watch to the end.....and have the kleenex box handy. … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday—Music Box Style

Teapot Tuesday today features a lovely floral teapot that I have had for quite some time.  Unfortunately I honestly do not remember where it came from.  I know that I bought it but remember that whole post about being able to remember the lyrics to all the 70's songs?   Well, perhaps I should have sung where I got it so that it would stick in my mind.  But never-mind---it is a pretty one and sings a pretty tune as well.  What tune does it play?   What would be the most appropriate tune? … [Read more...]

The Thrill Isn’t Gone—-Life on the Road

This weekend Chris and I had the joy of seeing B. B. King in concert at The Surf Ballroom for the second time.  The first time was in 2007 soon after we moved to Iowa.   It was our first experience at The Surf and we took our youngest son, Aaron, because he loves all kinds of music like we do.  It was a great evening---we were on the floor up fairly close and B. B . gave a great show. When I found out he was returning to The Surf I snagged tickets and a booth as soon as I could so that we … [Read more...]

Does Anyone Really Know What Time it Is??? It’s Friday in Chicago!

Last night Chris and I started the weekend early by going to a Chicago concert at the Surf Ballrooom in Clear Lake, Iowa. The Surf is a fabulous venue and I can only imagine how fabulous it would be to be performers playing there with all of the history that goes with it.  We have only been there once before for a BB King concert but it is an amazing place to go to a concert.  The venue is small ---the only seats are booths around the perimeter so the rest of the capacity crowd of 2100 is … [Read more...]
