Don't forget how great Thanksgiving is!!!

Let's not forget what a great holiday Thanksgiving is! It's beginning to get short shrift between Halloween and the now two month long Holiday season.
There's lots to love about turkey, family, friends, football and more turkey. Add in a nap, maybe flipping the switch on the outdoor Christmas lights and some Black Friday deals and it's quite a great time. It's also still ok to say "Happy Thanksgiving"! It's a nice time to take a quick break from "Life in the Fast Lane" to enjoy the things in life that matter....family, friends, food and football!
The other great thing? You don't fret over what to get people for Thanksgiving. EVERYONE I know likes turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie...or at least one of the three! The bonus: you don't have to wrap turkey!

Both of my kids are in high school!!!!
8/24/2011 5:00:00 AM
It's hard for me to believe, but both of my daughters are going to be in high school this year. One is a sophomore and the other a freshman.
Thirty one years ago when I entered Medford High School, Jimmy Carter was president, kids were wearing Nikes, a Sony Walkman was the musical technology of choice and the Jersey Shore was a beautiful place to vacation.
My kids think I roamed the streets with dinosaurs. I wonder if the children of today's high school kids will look back in over 30 years and think the IPad was like a typewriter, the IPod was primitive, and Tom Brady is an old geezer.
That's the way it works!
I hope they still wear Nike's, though!
What a great time of the year!!!

We're about to enter what has traditionally been our summer season. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, it's fun to be rooting on the Red Sox and this year, the Bruins.
It also means a return to shorts and shortsleeves, barbeques and sitting on the front porch.
I love to camp, go to the beach and, I'm embarassed to admit, wear my Crocs. It's all about comfort:):):)!!!!
AND.....all of your favorite country artists are returning to the area. My daughter Charlotte just attended her first concert without my wife or I. She brought a friend and because the Country crowd is so great, I caved and let them go in by themselves. SHE LOVES SUGARLAND!!! She even got to meet them and Jennifer Nettles was so nice to them!
So....have a GREAT, SAFE summer!!!
April...Opening Day, Boston Marathon, concerts!!!

The baseball season is underway, the Boston Marathon is in two weeks and the summer concerts are on the near horizon.
It's like a warm blanket in this chilly weather.
I love baseball and going to the park, because it's a chance to drive in the breakdown lane in the fast paced highway of life. Baseball is a relatively slow game, so you MUST watch slowly and take it all in. You can stlll text, talk and email....but you might miss a big hit.
The Boston Marathon on Patriots' Day Monday...(with an 11 am game at Fenway) is a chance to watch normal people do super human things. A 26.2 mile ride in the car takes a while. Running? It's amazing that people who go to work everyday, will train and committ themselves.....and 99.9 percent of them do it for pride only.
Once we get through ...

A Super Bowl without country music?
2/9/2011 9:00:00 AM
It drove me, and many others, crazy that there weren't any country stars who performed at halftime of the Super Bowl. Deep in the heart of Texas and no representation.
What a major mistake.
The halftime show got panned....for execution, lack of talent, poor performance.
That wouldn't have happened with Tim and Faith, Toby Keith, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, etc.
Why? They are stars who have talent!
I'm sure you'll see a country flavor next year. Hopefully, the NFL learned their lesson. There's a reason why it's the most popular music in America.
