The Priss

Apparently a response from the hair do to Hillary Clinton at tonites debates.

"Her answer drew a challenge from former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, who said he was the best advocate for women among the contenders. 'I have the strongest, boldest ideas,' he said".

So Edwards is more of a woman than Hillary....big surprise

Country Album recommendation

Toby Keith

Time Zones

I learned a difficult lesson on the South Bend, Indiana portion of my trip. It is important to know what time zone you are in if you are trying to go to a scheduled event. I was staying in LaPorte Indiana, 25 miles west of South Bend. That was in the central time zone. South Bend is eastern. Anyway, here are some pix of the South Bend SilverHawks, Triple A affiliate of the Diamondbacks. Also included is the local Union Station.

To those who disparaged Zepplin, that means you Noonan & you Adam (although Adam is right). You still have to listen to this.

Movie in Bridgeport

Ruth Rocket Reports

These are pictures from the filming of "For One More Day" a tv movie from the book written by Mitch Albom. They are doing filming right in front of my friend, Leah Boland's house on Fayerweather Terrace in Black Rock. It is very exciting and we feel like we are part of the crew. We cook out every night and watch. So interesting, I never knew about all the details that go into a film.
I am sure you know me, but the others are Mitch Albom, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Imperiolo (Soprano's Christopher) and Patty Murnin (friend).

Well back to the set, ROLLING.............................AND ...............ACTION!!!!


Brad Paisley

The song is called Ticks. You can't make this stuff up.

Sign that the Apocalypse is on us Part 4 million

On my way out west, I was bored with the stuff on my Ipod. As I drove through the corn fields of Indiana, I decided to listen to some country music and actually got into it. Have just recently purchased:

As Good As I Once Was - Toby Keith
Watching You - Rodney Atkins
Wrapped - George Strait
She's in Love with the Boy - Trisha Yearwood
Lucky Man - Montgomery Gentry

I need to find a song, I swear to God this is in the lyrics...."I want to check you for ticks!"

Ah well, It's better than watching the Yankees.

Wake up the Echoes

Back from vacation, a sports lovers dream. This should need no introduction

Album Recommendation

Or is that CD. Anyway...How the West was Won by Led Zepplin. Incendiary!


Heading out on Vacation today. Hopefully at this time tomorrow will be standing on the 50 yard line of Notre Dame Stadium. Numerous photos to follow. Thanks Ed for being the first poster here. Just to make sure no one is confused about my baseball loyalties I have added this. (Fish & Yanks)
