Last year I participated in a study via the #CCFA to study the genetic pathways of #Crohns patients. After 30+ years of battling Crohns I really hope my blood helped to contribute to this advance in understanding this pernicious disease and will aid in finding more effective treatments and one day a cure. This is another example of why we need to have the federal government invest in medical and scientific research!

I don't think AM Radio wouldn't work after an EM pulse from an exploding A or H-Bomb.

A great song about the heartbreak of a life in prostitution.

If I had to come up with a Paul McCartney & Wings Greatest Hits I couldn't imagine being able to keep it to under 30 songs. Maybe I'm Amazed is the best song not on this compilation!

I love the song, one of the  reasons is indeed the presence of bagpipes. But the lyrics are extremely beautiful, very visual, they sort of "paint a poem". And it speaks of friendship, memories, nostalgia and longing, what's not to love in it?

I miss ALF. His series was laugh out loud funny and since Hollywood recycles all of the old they really should do an ALF reboot. He could also be on the Food Network with his Melmacian Cat Cooking Tips.

+Osaji Obi I caught the 4 ALF DVD sets on sale online so I can enjoy the adventures of ALF and the Tanner family whenever the urge hits me. Which network would run a new version of ALF is a great question. I think he would be at home on Comedy Central because the reboot would have plenty of snarky commentary on our shallow & self-absorbed culture. Also there would have to be a cat involved for ALF to plot to consume.

Emily brought a smile to my face with her bravura performance on the drums of this Beatles classic. This young lady has mad skills & I am sure we will be hearing from her in the future. If I could make a request I would love to hear her take on "Rain" because Ringo's work on that song was just so heavy for its day. "Tomorrow Never Knows" is another great Beatles Tour De Force for Ringo that would be a great cover fo Emily. Keep up the great work Emily & we will see you on tour in the 2020s!

I have really enjoyed the music of this band from the start. Their latest album doesn't disappoint and will cement their status as a great band worthy of their success.

Jimmy Carter is the first President that I fully remember being in office. I have a partial memory of the end of the disgraced Nixon's tenure and the brief Administration of Ford. So it was a walk down memory lane to visit Carter's Museum. It is a beautiful campus and a calm, tranquil place just to sit outside and enjoy the scenery. Once you enter the building you go through the gift shop to start the tour. You learn the history of Carter's life in Georgia and the world in which he came of age. Then you discover that his time in the US Navy as a Submariner made a great impact on his life. His marriage to Roslyn probably kept Carter from making a career of the Navy. His family drew him back to Georgia where the inequality and lack of positive political change pushed him to get into politics to make a difference in the lives of his neighbors and for the citizens of the state. He was a popular Governor who was a genuine outsider to the Beltway politics of Washington. The museum does a great job of putting this history into the context of the time with Carter's intentions and then showing the consequences of his actions. You see what the pressing issues of the day were and how Carter ran against Ford to win the Presidency. Carter had many highs in office but the Museum doesn't shy away discussing the difficulties of the Administration including the Iranian Hostage Crisis; the Energy Crisis and the economy. While he left office feeling that there was more to be accomplished he did not fade quietly into the night. The Museum also details his great humanitarian work as an ex-President including Habitat for Humanity, addressing world hunger and health issues, monitoring elections in emerging democracies, etc. I left the Museum with a much great appreciation for the accomplishments of President Carter. The Museum put Carter's life in context which is what you need in understanding history. I highly recommend taking a day to visit this Museum when you are in the Atlanta area.

This isn't the newest or most opulent hotel but it is a well-managed facility that has met our needs at a decent price. It is located near Seattle Center which is great when you are here to play tourist. Most local attractions are within walking distance or a short drive or shuttle ride. There are numerous restaurants from basic diners to fine dining in the area. We have really enjoyed the breakfast buffet here at the hotel. Staff has been helpful & responsive to requests. The only real criticism I have is that the room with two double beds is small & it could use more power outlets. Otherwise this has been a stress free & enjoyable place to stay in Seattle.

Chef Besh took the inspiration for Lüke from his time in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France. This area is known for its mix of French and German culinary dishes and that is reflected in the menu of this establishment. While the menu may be inspired by a faraway place the ingredients for the restaurant are secured from local farmers & suppliers when possible. I understand that most of the ingredients come from a 100 mile radius around New Orleans. The high-quality, fresh ingredients shine in these tasty dishes. Today my wife & I dined at Lüke for our anniversary. Our server was a wonderful young lady (Tara) who was very friendly, courteous & attentive. The kitchen made an error with my wife's omelet & Tara took care of this issue immediately soon returning with the correct omelet. My wife is German & she loved the spätzle & the omelet. I had the buttermilk fried chicken and waffles with bacon gravy and Louisiana muscadine syrup. I also had a side of bacon & a biscuit. The chicken was good if a bit greasy and the bacon was some of the best I have ever eaten. I wasn't crazy about the bacon gravy & I found the muscadine syrup too sweet for my taste. I will know how to order to my peculiar taste on our next visit. The assistant manager checked in with us & chatted for a few minutes. So they do have a very friendly & welcoming staff that took care of our needs and requests. We look forward to returning to Lüke in the future as this restaurant certainly provides a fine dining experience that is expected from a John Besh managed establishment.

We have been taking our vehicles to Julie and her staff at CARS since 2006. They are a very professional and highly competent auto repair shop. They offer many services for your car that can be found at other service shops but we are loyal to CARS because they are honest and they stand by their work. I used to worry about getting my car serviced or repaired because I just never knew if the people working on my car were trustworthy. I have never had that feeling with Julie and CARS. I know that if they say their is an issue that they are telling me the truth and they will actually repair the problem right the first time. As long as we live in this region we will use CARS for all of our automotive maintenance and repair issues.

I haven't been very impressed with several of the area praline offerings as none of the confectionery makers made a praline worth seeking out. This all changed during the 2010 Jazz Fest where I had the honor of being a volunteer worker assisting Loretta of Loretta's Authentic Pralines when she did her praline cooking demonstration. When I sampled her cooking I was blown away as they were by far and away the best pralines I have ever tasted. If I could I would have made myself sick as I couldn't stop eating them. It is no joke that these are the best creamy New Orleans style pralines in the world. I went by her Marigny store on N. Rampart & you could smell the delicious as soon as you walked in the door. She offers many tasty items but she is best known for her pralines. So if you want to bite into the best tasting creamy pralines on Earth, do yourself a favor and stop by Loretta's and I promise you won't be sorry.
