Tunes Tuesday – Brooks & Dunn – That Ain’t No Way To Go

I was a student at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN back in the early 1990’s and I was becoming a country music fan at the time. I cut my “country teeth” on Brooks and Dunn who were a rising powerhouse duo. This song is one I have great fondness for its soul and storytelling. Ronnie Dunn is a great vocalist who has a classic tone to his voice. Enjoy this blast from the past.

A Memorial Day Reflection

134-memorialday2015

Memorial Day is to recognize those who died in the defense and service of our country. I say there were plenty who died physically and plenty who died spiritually and emotionally. Death isn’t just about the body perishing it’s about leaving a part of one’s soul on the field of battle. We must remember those who died in more than one way today. Those who returned from war must be comforted and cared for along with those they left behind. Even those who died in a different way need love, care and support.

Rambling About Reblogging

I wish there was a setting that would prevent selected blogs from being reblogged by other users. Personally I don’t reblog a lot of stuff because I believe in generating original content. I will only reblog something if it fits in the philosophy of my blog. There is some value in reblogging because of the traffic it generates but there is also a creepy aspect about re-posting something personal from another blogger. With a little imagination and creativity people can do amazing work.

Music Monday: Memorial Day – Billy Ray Cyrus – Some Gave All

Memorial Day is a time to honor fallen members of the military in the United States of America. This song by Billy Ray Cyrus just seems to capture the spirit and the somberness of the holiday very well. He tells a great story in this song. Some gave all, we must remember.

To all those who have given their lives to the service of our country I say thank you. Young men and women from all walks of life sign up to join the service branch of their choice. They leave their homes and families to prepare themselves to defend our country. Many return while some  brave souls give their lives on the field of battle. It’s on this day we honor your sacrifice and remember the great things you did for us all.
