Decorating When Mardi Gras “Carnival Season” arrives, I’m like a little kid on Christmas Day. I can’t wait to decorate with the colors of purple, gold and green. A large part of Mardi decorating,involves things accumulated from years before. Treasured “throws,” such as a specific Krewe’s medallion beads, doubloons, King Cake babies, plush items or prized throws such […]
Vote for Joe Merrick: The Voice Extra Rally It is not every day, that Joe Merrick, the super “cool kid” from JR. high band, who you may have had a crush on or not, gets a video audition sent to the Voice and you have a chance to vote. Ya, Joe and I go back […]
Seriously, my husband sent me this text the day of the concert! Too funny not to publish! UGH! My 12 year old Princess is obsessed with Justin Bieber. I kid you not – obsessed for a a couple of years and it does not seem to be fading. So when I heard he was coming […]

It has been 3 weeks since dad came to stay with us now. I have been reading a lot about Alzheimer’s and music is mentioned just about everywhere for therapeutic uses. Dad is doing amazingly well and I have found, when he has a down moment, music can change his mood miraculously. He may not […]

Being a long time Milblogger, I get all kinds of stuff sent to me about supporting the troops. Well…this video I received this morning, brought chills down my spine. “We Will Remember Them” is a star-powered collaborative project similar to “We Are the World.” It was recorded int he UK, so I don’t hardly recognize […]
Yes, for once I caught a little bit of Oprah and saw some of her interview. It was good to hear her sing again!
A little late – but still worth a watch! The band is the Blackened Blues and the drummer, Chuck Collins is my radio co-host.
For those on the Northshore, or even the Southshore who have not been to Ruby’s Roadhouse in Mandeville, time to get up and go. Yours truly is not much one for going to bars and dancing these days (seems going out is limited to events). However, being that is a hop skip and a jump […]
Another weekend sitting my dead-ass on the couch eating bon-bons…NOT! So here is my entire weekend in a nutshell or at least a post. Music: Friday night, I went to Ruby’s Roadhouse for a couple of hours to watch the Blackened Blues Band play (their music is on my radio show). As always, the band […]
I would like to share with you this amazing military-inspired song that sent chills down my spine. There is an intro with the explanation for the inspiration of this song that is very much worth a listen. You see, Joe Merrick, the singer and song writer is someone I went to school with and was […]

Like being together that long isn’t an accomplishment enough, these guys also support the troops! Yeppers, Dave Malone, the point man and singer/guitarist for the New Orleans band, The Radiators, contacted Soldiers’ […]
Sing this to the Go-Go’s song “Vacation.” This morning, my friend e-mailed me about the new term “stacation” (stay at home vacation) and I thought I’d share it with you. Because, let’s face it, unless your money tree is blooming on steroids, you can’t afford to go too far from home this Summer. You know […]
