What is Really Happening

| June 2, 2011

иконографияКартинимека мебел Wow, too much to relate here. I have spent some time just thinking. What is important, what I should do first, second and so on. I was sick for a while, thankfully that is in the past. It did make me think even more, however. Our daughters are moving on, to places of […]

Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival

| December 6, 2010

We enjoyed attending this fine show in Wilmington, Ohio, November 11-13. The Thursday night veterans tribute was an addition to what has been a two day event in the past. The Centerville High School Alternative Strings ensemble joined Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage and Nothin’ Fancy to pay tribute […]

The Best Part

| September 28, 2010

The best part of IBMA it the energy of the participants. Now, there are plenty of bluegrass festivals that contain something similar, but this gathering is special. We are part of a group of grassroots club members that are here for the music and atmosphere, rather than for the seminars. Although we would qualify for […]

Pickin’ On Cystic Fibrosis – September 16-18, 2010

| September 14, 2010

I have written about this before, three times, perhaps more than that. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic lung disease , about which much is known. But there is no cure, and having the disease is a death sentence. I first learned about CF when a CF baby was born to neighborhood family, in 1973, about […]

The grounds of KC Campground, Milan, Michigan are already filling with campers. There is room for more, but this is as large an early crowd as I have seen. Here is the view to the northeast of our camper at noon, Wednesday. And here this is what it looks like to northwest at the same […]

Bluegrass Music, Get it!

| March 29, 2010

We spend a great weekend down at Joe Mullins’ fabulous Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival. If anyone needs to know how to run a show, they need look no farther that that fine example, or any of the Adams & Anderson presentations. Today I am concentrating on an overview Southern Ohio festival. Papa is working […]

Spring Has Sprung!

| March 23, 2010

Papa and I took off last weekend, heading out to shake the cabin fever which has taken root around here. I think we were successful, I feel more energy and may actually get something done this week, if I continue like yesterday. Our first stop was Owens Community College, where we saw the Grascals. We […]

Thoughts for a Monday

| January 11, 2010

I agree with Ron Thomason who once said, “It is hard to believe that only fifty percent of the people are below average”. For my part, in an average day I meet several people, and it seems like they are all below average. What is average anyway? Who let these people out on the street? […]
