There has been quite a controversy over the death of Sandra Bland in a Texas jail, where she was taken after a traffic stop in Waller County. The dash cam video has gone viral, and it is clear that what should have been a routine stop, escalated out of control quickly, in part because of […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 27, 2015 |

 How was your weekend? I had another fun time at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts teaching my guitar student Saturday morning, then that evening attending a concert with Professor Porkchop and The Dishes. Very odd name for a band, and I wondered why it was chosen, then that V-8 moment occurred. Mega stars have […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends – Say “No” to GMO

Posted by mcm0704 on July 24, 2015 |

Drama camp at the Winnsboro Center for the Arts wound down with two performances of our show. We had SRO for both performances and everyone had a grand time. George Gagliardi, the singer/songwriter who helped the kids with the music, got into the pirate spirit. If you regularly read my blog, you know that I […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 17, 2015 |

I read in the newspaper that the Texas Department of Transportation recently gave workers a raise. I thought that was quite nice until I noted that the top tier of managers got up to a 17% raise, while those in the trenches only got a small raise. Just another example of those who do the […]

Posted by mcm0704 on July 15, 2015 |

Slim Randles is back again as my Wednesday’s Guest with a reminder that some of us may need a little help in the audio department. Because it is so blasted hot right now in so many places, I thought we could have a chilled slice of watermelon as a refreshment today. Enjoy…. “Bert looks good […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 13, 2015 |

Coloring books for adults is the latest craze to spread like spilled milk, and Sunday there was an article in Parade Magazine quoting experts who said how good it is to color. It relieves stress, relaxes us and can even make us smile. Gosh. I’ve known that for years. Sketching and coloring was a favorite […]
