A good start to the music year for Folkies

A good start to the music year for Folkies

(Do not miss the video at the bottom of the blog)

Just a few things going on at the start of the year. Make a promise to attend more live music in 2009.

I hope you all had a good New Year event. I got home after the morning paper had been delivered, so I assume I had a good night. Tonight (Friday)I get to start all over again at another party. It sure is a hard life.

Just For A Laugh

This will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. They say love is blind but I think it is tone deaf as well.

Well, as a Pat Boone cover, I think it was an improvement. The lyrics were better than a lot of stuff clear chanel plays and more cerebral than Toby Keith's stuff.
