Dodging the Roadkill: Lending A Helping Hand

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – We all know that the biker’s code is to never leave a brother/sister behind.  Bikers are notorious for taking care of their own, but when total strangers step up to help a group of bikers, well, that’s pretty special.

Just today, four of us were out riding the beautiful Tennessee countryside.  Just rolling and riding on a February day that gave us some decent weather to do so.

We wound ourselves through Cheatham County, over to Pegram, then ultimately to Leipers Fork.  Just four guys who travel together and ride every chance we get.

My Two Cents: Dusty

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterPerdido Key, FL – We vacation here every year, and every year we manage to meet new friends.  They come from all over and we’re united by the ocean, the pool and the sunshine.  Once our time here is done, we go our separate ways, never to be seen by one another again.

Not this year. 

This year I met a young man who has touched my heart and soul.  A man who faces unbelievable challenges every day and that’s just before breakfast.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Sweep Chicago Blackhawks, Now What?

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators have done something that nobody could have ever predicted.  The eighth seeded Preds have won four games in a row over the Stanley Cup Champions, and #1 seed, Chicago Blackhawks.  It’s called a SWEEP!

Not one single hockey writer, broadcaster, play-by-play guy, producer, coach, player or even the equipment guy could have ever predicted that the Nashville Predators would sweep their series against Chicago.

Grand Ole OpryNashville, TN – “Welcome to the show that made country music famous, the Grand Ole Opry!” It started off as a radio show back in 1925.

Salon 615: The Home (and Heart) of the Blues in Printers Alley

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/WriterNashville, TN – As you know by now from my columns, Printers Alley, where I live and write is literally the “home of the blues” as the famed Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar is situated right in the heart of the bustling historic district of downtown off Church Street. And though there are a few regulars here who are declared (or claim) to be the “mayor of the alley,” only one man is king of the blues in these parts: Gil Gann, “the man.”

If you’ve walked through the alley only once, you’ve likely seen him in his signature performing regalia of top hat and black cotton matching shirt and pants—either putting out the signs for the club, sitting on the café chairs outside grabbing a smoke, or where he weaves his daily magic “on da porch” as they call the famed stage at Bourbon.

Text-to-Donate Campaign Launching Immediately, will be included in telecast of ‘ACM PRESENTS: BROOKS & DUNN – THE LAST RODEO’ on May 23rd on CBS

ENCINO, CA,  — Reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Carrie Underwood and ACM Lifting Lives have committed seed funding to create the new ACM Lifting Lives Temporary Home Fund to support relief efforts for families devastated by the recent floods in Middle Tennessee. The Fund takes its name from Underwood’s co-penned hit song “Temporary Home,” in acknowledgement of the immediate needs surrounding those impacted by the floods.

“ACM Lifting Lives received funds from the taping of the Brooks & Dunn special seven days ago, and as a nimble organization, we are eager to immediately give back to the communities in Middle Tennessee that were hit hardest,” said Erin Spahn, Director of ACM Lifting Lives. “In addition, we approached Carrie about how she wanted to use the grants she would receive as our 2009 Entertainer of the Year, and she leapt at the chance to help people in need of shelter.
