    Hi everyone, had to sign on and share sorrow about today's craziness. I live about a half hour from New town, and work with several people from there including my manager who has elementary age kids. The news found me here on vacation and I had to reach out.

    Be kind, folks.

      Good Saturday Morning my Homies from a cloudy and rainy Memphis,Tn. I Hope you ALL are safe and relaxing this weekend. I see that the violence followed Kat to Vegas in the Excalibur Hotel. Sad....IMHO I can only blame the Motion Picture Association,The Military and The Video game Industry for this increase in violence across the U.S.A. It has De-sensitized young peoples views on the values of life. These video games are so real in the use of guns to take out an enemy ( only in the minds of the shooter ) that they practice in the comfort of their own rooms before taking out their own anger on innocent people,not realizing the aftereffects they have caused. It is truly Sad.
      On my way shortly to Joplin,Mo.....please stay safe Everyone.

    Oh and did anyone else notice the alien toes in the picture? He had me fooled into thinking he was human at first glance, but the toes were a dead giveaway....

    I've recently become a HUGE fan of the BBC's show Top Gear. Their theme song is below. The original is below that.



    Enjoy your Finally Friday folks!

      One of the best sounds of all time. I looooove the Allman Brothers. Their album Live at Fillmore East was recorded around 1969. Still one of the best ever. Thanks very very much for the post. It was nice to hear them again : )

      Hubby and I have been watching Top Gear recently as well, Thank You Netflix!!! I love when they do the race comps, car vs train, car vs boat, and car vs. plane :-)
