Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek of The Cars have passed away in the past few days. They were important parts of the soundtrack of my youth in the 1980’s. Both men were rock and roll through and through. Their voices are distinctive and timeless and they will be remembered now and forever.
This blog is a welcoming one to those who aren’t perfect and those who need someone to understand them. We are all human and have made mistakes. Few of us are divine and that’s OK.

No matter where you are and how you are feeling know you are loved. Grace and peace good people. You are good people in case you haven’t been told that lately.

Thanks to Tennessee American Water our water service utility for their hard work in getting things flowing again.

This is a funny meme going around the Chattanooga Facebook community today. This originates from National Lampoon’s: Vacation when the Griswold’s go to Wally World and are told it’s closed.
