A Rose By Any Other Name

It's probably safe to say that the rose has been the most-written-about flower in songs of practically all genres. Think of "San Antonio Rose" (Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys), "Room Full of Roses" (George Morgan, Mickey Gilley), "Rose Garden" (Lynn Anderson) or "The Rose" (Bette Midler, Conway Twitty). If you like to grow your own roses, you'll want to attend the Winter Rose Pruning Workshop in (where else?) the Memorial Rose Garden at Riverside Park.

A Piece Of Country Music History

Folks who know me know that I really LIKE Country music! From the days of playing in my first Country bands to becoming a Country radio personality, I've been a serious 'student' of the music, its history, and the people who make it. Certain places, instruments and artifacts connected with Country's rich history are almost "sacred" to me. In the mid-1990's, I worked on the air in Bakersfield, CA at a station owned by the late, great Buck Owens. One of Buck's biggest--and most beloved--hits with his band, The

CHOO-Ahh! Reverse Sneezing in Dogs

Our Pug Princess, Pheobe (who you met in a blog post from earlier this week) experiences this sometimes. It would freak us out a little, until we found out what it was: some dogs do what is called, "reverse sneezing." She would make a series of snorting sounds, and it seemed like she couldn't breathe for a few seconds, but then she would be okay. If you have a dog that does this, you'll want to read this!

Study: Drummers Are ‘Natural Intellectuals’

I love it when science and medicine confirm something I've known most of my life! I hate to brag, but hey...this was a scientific study, and who am I to argue with scientists; especially when their conclusions serve to boost my ego a little? If you know (or are yourself) a drummer, this will make your day!

Making Wheelchairs Obsolete

We live in truly amazing times! Medical advances seem to happen almost every week, especially for those who have suffered an injury to their spinal cord. I have a "bonus" son (my preferred term for "stepson") who has a spinal cord injury. While he is not a complete paraplegic, he has to use a bulky leg brace to stand upright, and a cane to walk. This TekRMD® Robotic Mobilization Device could help him, and countless others who have limited mobility, or are completely wheelchair-bound. Check out this video!

“Strong” Changes At UT?

Let me start this by saying I first saw this on a friend's Facebook page. And this is an ACTUAL friend of mine, not merely a "Facebook friend." This friend is also a UT alum, and keeps close tabs on what's happening with the Longhorns football program. That being said, if this information is true, there will be a major culture change in the UT football program, thanks to new Head Coach Charlie Strong!

The Phoebe Philes–Part 1

Skeeter notes: Sometimes, I get 'writer's block' when trying to come up with something clever for my blog posts here. So, I asked my Pug "princess," Phoebe, to write something for me this week. Now, you may say to yourself, "Dogs can't write!" And you would be correct. However, with patience, training, and treats, they can be taught to type. So, without further ado, I present Part 1 of "The Phoebe Philes."

Are Vinyl Records Making A Comeback?

Yes, I'm old enough to remember vinyl records...I still have a bunch, and a turntable on which to play them! The old saying, "Everything 'old' is 'new' again" seems to be true with the way folks like to listen to music. As I said, I still have probably a couple of hundred albums, dozens of 45's, and even a few box sets! I've always thought vinyl sounded better than just about anything they've come up with over the years! Check out this article, and the surprising new statistics regarding good ol' vinyl records!
