Wow: The Strength of A Woman (Part Deaux)

October 7, 2009

Women on Wednesday…’nuff said. As I listen to this song, these thoughts flow from that in my mind, to the keys I tap on the keyboard. These words appear on my screen… How is it that men hold nearly all of the power positions in the world? Rarely does one see a study on the […]

26 Aug 2009 Country music. A year ago, you couldn’t have paid me to listen to it (well…maybe if you paid me). Although I have lived in Texas all my life and driven a Ford truck for years (is there any other kind?), I have been the consumate city boy. Until…I’m not quite sure when… […]
