Skeeter to Guest on the Refugio Country Opry

I'm very excited (and honored) to have been asked to be a featured performer at the Refugio Country Opry show tonight. This is the first time I've been invited to perform on this particular show; and while I'm the drummer for the Flag City Opry Band in Edna, and frequent emcee at the Crossroads Country Opry show in Victoria (where I get to sing a couple of songs, too), this is a first for Yours Truly. I enjoy the occasional opportunity to step out from behind the drums and sing in front of a great band like this one!

Dolly Parton Posts Facebook Photo With Randy Travis

Since his stroke last year, legendary Country artist Randy Travis hasn't been seen in public much, if at all. That changed when Dolly Parton published a photo on Facebook of herself and 80's country hit-maker Janie Fricke with Randy, smiling and looking not much worse for all his health issues. Randy was in the audience at Dolly's show this past Saturday in Thackerville, OK, and Dolly gave a special shout-out from the stage to the "Forever And Ever, Amen" singer.

Science: Drummers’ Brains Are Actually Different

Being a drummer, I've heard all of the jokes. I've also been told at times that my brain wasn't "quite right." Well, according to a scientific study, it's apparently true...but in a good way. I've always tried to be a problem-solver, and this study shows that trait is part and parcel with being able to lay a solid groove "in the pocket." But, hey...don't take my word for it; read the article and see why I have just gotten a nice, big shot of self-esteem.

6 Top Features in Mac OS X Yosemite

I will admit, I love my Apple products...from my first iPod many years ago to the iMac I got this last September, I've really become a big fan. They just work! Now, from the latest World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), comes the preview of the upcoming Mac OS X "Yosemite" operating system, and some of the features being added almost made me stand up and cheer. It's a good thing I was alone at the time.

BBB: How to Avoid Buying Counterfeit Event Tickets

You're excited. You've found what you think is a "great" deal on a pair of tickets to that big concert, championship tournament, or other big event. You buy the tickets, drive to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, or maybe even make the trek all the way up to Dallas. When you get to the doors of the venue, they scan your tickets. Then, like a cold slap to the face, the ticket-taker informs you that your "bargain" (or not, if you paid scalped rates) tickets are no good. In fact, they're counterfeit. Phonies. Fakes. You may ask yourself, "How could I have fallen for it, and what do I do now?" Here's some advice from the Better Business Bureau.
