Raif Badawi was supposed to get a second part of getting a 1000 lashes (50 a week for 20 weeks) last Friday, but it was delayed for medical reasons. In addition to his 1000 public lashes, of which he has already received the first 50, he is to serve 10 years for basically expressing his opinions and wanting a little more of what most of us consider basic human rights.
This one comes up because of my wife and I exchanging a couple of smaller Christmas gift last evening. My gift from her, a Glen Campbell Greatest Hits CD, which has been on Amazon wish list for a couple of years. I have been listening to it last evening and again this morning. A wonderful gift indeed.
Just saw a segment and CBS Sunday Morning that was just perfect and very much in line with exactly how I think the system should work. So, recently in Kansas City, a wealthy anonymous business man who has done Secret Santa cash giveaways for several years enlisted the help of the law enforcement officers there in Kansas City.
George Strait is a great musician and really just an all around great guy. Such longevity and he keeps going with what is undeniably true country western music.
We have an election concerning expanding alcohol sales here in Danville to include that of packaged sales. For those outside of the area, let me be clear – you can already get it by the drink in several establishments, as well as packaged in several nearby counties, including a less than thirty minute drive in at least three directions. And yes, you guessed it, I have an opinion.
I am just on a roll today and this will be published about three days hence. But this evening I was going through some stuff and making listings on eBay of things I was no longer really interested in or wanting. And then I got to this one bag of lead soldier miniatures and I just had to stop… Wow the memories and such that flooded into my head.
Blind Side is an awesome movie and I realize that now that is based on a true story, which makes it even more awesome. Hopefully this is going to bode well for the fall/winter movie release lineup.
What a crazy day of ups and downs… I am sharing with you, probably because the net is more up then down… enjoy.
Sometime last fall/winter (though I actually started writing this in the early morning hours of the actual night of the concert), I had tickets to see what I think is one of the greatest things to come out of the country music scene in a LONG time. Yeah Joey & Rory, of CMT’s Can You Duet fame as well as those really great Overstock.com commercials that were especially active during the Christmas holiday season so recently passed. I almost nearly stumbled into the tickets, having caught a glimpse of the flier a week or two prior, I purchased tickets immediately without even knowing who I would get to go with me for sure. If you have a chance anytime soon it is well worth the $15.00 I paid for tickets to see this awesome duo live and in person.
