My 10 Day Tennessee Road Trip

I had a fantastic time on my 10 day road trip through Tennessee (and Mississippi and Virginia). I hadn’t taken a real road trip in about 7 years, so it was nice to get back to the freedom of the open road!

Rockabilly – my Music A to Z

I love Rockabilly! I think I have always loved it, but didn’t really learn about it until I moved to Memphis.

Chicago day 1 – Million Dollar Quartet

I love Chicago! This is a great town. If I were to live in a big city, I would live in Chicago. The people are nice, the streets are clean, the food is great, but the traffic is horrific! Left Memphis at 8am and arrived in ChiTown at 5pm, after making 2 stops. The only site on the way was the big [continue reading]

Music & Baseball in Chicago

Going to be a great long weekend in Chicago! After dropping off the dogs at the vet Thursday morning (big sigh!), I’m driving 8+ hours north to Chicago to start my weekend of music and baseball! Staying downtown just a few blocks from Grant Park will make it an easy walk to Lollapalooza and a [continue reading]
