Spreading The Word To Please Vote


My neighbor is very supportive of his son.  I have had many posts on my blogs about the family previously if you search through my two years of blogging and you come across anything to do with MikeFest.  They are the founders of that program.

Their son is in a group that is called Eye Tooth.  This band plays not only locally but across the state of Tennessee.  They have been in a competition recently and have required people to vote for them.

Right now their standings are looking rather good.

I have watched this young man grow up and be a part of not only this band but also this community.  He is a good role model for our youth and should be supported.

Please take the time to vote for Eye Tooth.

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/daily-prompt-distance/

Found this in my emails and thought it was interesting even though it is not an officially listed prompt.
It was a thought that was cancelled after sent.



Would love to hear what you think of when you hear this prompt…

Was just too good to not use it.

Daily Prompt: Clouds Have A Silver Lining


Daily Prompt: Silver Linings

Write about something you consider “ugly” — war, violence, failure, hatred — but try to find beauty, or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us UGLY.

A Benefit Concert is normally to raise money for a great cause.
The big celebrity shindigs normally have a huge turn out of celebrities who convince people to donate.

The latest Benefit in Boston is still all the rage in Twitter and various social media.

The hype?

Benefit Concert Unites Americans in Love of Boston, Hatred of Dane Cook

http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/stop-the-presses/benefit-concert-unites-americans-love-boston-hatred-dane-061745789.html

The Boston Strong benefit concert that streamed over the web Thursday night was notable for appearances by homegrown artists ranging from Aerosmith to the reunited New Kids on the Block. But the most talked about act of the night was Dane Cook… and not because America suddenly fell in love with him all over again.

The hostility toward Cook toward the end of the show became rampant enough that the comedian became a trending topic on Twitter — out of sheer contempt. He’s always been a polarizing comic, but what caused him to become a social media supervillain on a night devoted to charity and good vibes? Just this: The web feed being viewed by millions went dead as soon as he took the stage and came back on as soon as he left, leading to rampant speculation that he had disallowed organizers from sending his set over the web like everyone else’s.

Eventually Cook confirmed it himself, sounding blithe about the rampant contempt directed his way: “Hey everyone sorry my set was not a part of the live stream or televised! I didn’t want any of the new material to hit the airwaves yet! I can’t wait to share it soon!”

If the marathon bombings made Bostonians mad, Cook’s “Dane Cook move” (as one angry tweeter put it) might have been the one thing that could have enraged locals even more. Jeff Howe, a sports writer for the Boston Herald, unleashed a series of tweets bashing the comic. “Couldn’t imagine turning on a city the way @DaneCook did tonight. I know that’s not how it goes here in Massachusetts… I’ll admit, I used to think he was hilarious, but turning your back on your state makes you look like a squirrel… Why use a tragedy to tease your career?”

Other Boston residents or sympathizers joined in on Twitter: “I have loved Dane Cook since day 1, but I am just speechless on what he did tonight. Feel betrayed”… “If this rumor is true about Dane Cook blocking the stream of his performance for a charity show, he should rot in hell asap”… “Dane Cook right up the with Onizneb as the shame of Massachusetts”… “We will always forgive Doug Flutie for the gym shorts, but we will never forgive Dane Cook for being Dane Cook”… “If Dane Cook wasn’t just censored and he blocked it himself, he has become public enemy number 1″… “I hear Dane Cook earned $100,000 for Boston charities by auctioning off his exit from the stage”… And so on.

Cook did allow himself to appear on camera for the all-star finale, joining Aerosmith for the the classic rock song “Dirty Water” and wielding Steven Tyler’s mic stand, apparently unaware of the fact that he’d just become the most discussed alleged evildoer in America. As one tweeter wrote, “Watching Dane Cook sing and dance oblivious to the fact Boston hates him is the funniest thing he has done in years!”

At first, viewers figured there might be technical difficulties when the feed dropped out moments after Cook came on stage, since the first third of the five-hour-plus concert was plagued by streaming difficulties that rendered the show virtually unwatchable. That buffering disaster caused untold thousands to tune out of the broadcast and stirred up its own social-media firestorm, until the streaming finally smoothed out at about the time Jason Aldean took the stage two hours into the show.

Did someone lose sight about what a fund raiser is all about here?  Perhaps next time Mr. Cook should think twice before making an appearance till he is ready to publicise his material.

Giving the fundraiser a black eye was not his intent, or at least I hope not.  All in all Money was still raised and even he was still able to raise some money.

That is the silver lining to this cloudy day.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 16


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Sixteen days on the road is a long trip.  Since I had planned for this to be a cross country trip in a way, to last at least 30 days that would put us at our road marker of the midpoint.

My grander scheme was to do this for a year.  I am not certain if I have the steam to do that.  Time will tell.  Can I make it interesting and vibrant enough  to keep readers attention and drive to want to come back each day to see where it has gone or will they fade from boredom?

My first stop is a blog site that is new to me and I have enjoyed the wonderful photography:

http://jennifernicholewells.com/ Check her out as she has been Freshly Pressed.

Next stop is a shout out to someone who wrote a poem to his wife as a gift for their anniversary:

http://ivonprefontaine.com/2013/05/22/marriage/ I felt compelled to mention that as the Daily Prompt today was about “Jealousy” and there is obviously nothing like that going on in their strong relationship.

Our Next stop is some more great photography:

http://carolwelsh.wordpress.com/ She never ceases to amaze me with her work.

Great reading ahead as we make our next stop so hold on to your seat:

http://whoatethedaisies.wordpress.com/ Not giving it away, you have to go see.

http://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/ Told you not telling…

http://stuphblog.wordpress.com/ I will say with this one I am glad that the YouTube Tuesday is back…There are great articles also.

For a blog site that has only been around since August of this Year, lets give a warm welcome to:

http://khanasweb.com Welcome aboard and may you have many blessed years of  Writing and Photography in your future.

Well that will do it for today as I have an article to write about why my stuff has been so short…allergies…

Till tomorrow…when we are on the road again…

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Lucky Day 13


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

I certainly hope that some of my readers are not superstitious as I would hate to lose you for a day just due to a number.

Let’s crank up the radio with an appropriate song and start our journey then:

Since our trip is based on comments and my feed back lately, let me check to see where we are going to be starting our trip.

http://hannahsterry.com/ What an appropriate stop indeed.  Everything from music to cartoons here for our morning entertainment.

Our next stop is a bit of reading material for the passengers since the driver should only do that …

http://maggiestoriesawb.wordpress.com/ lots of great reading material here.

Now that you are content with reading material we are off to a new destination:

http://kloipy.wordpress.com/  This one is such a hot site we may have to stop for refreshments while reading since this one has been featured on Freshly Pressed. You will have to see for yourself why as it is so hot…it will make my pages sizzle if I let out the secret.

One of the fun things to do is meet travelers while you are traveling.  With that said lets meet:

http://patriciaddrury.com/ She seems to do a daily travel through life.  Not giving it away…go see…

Since 13 is not supposed to be a lucky number I am going to make this a short day and stop with the next blogger who should keep you quite entertained for the rest of the day with everything that he does…

http://pouringmyartout.wordpress.com/ You really never know what you are going to find when you go into the reader in the morning and see his posts.  I will say he is versatile in his style and bold and daring.  the rest you can see for yourself.

Until tomorrow I leave you with a song, Please pardon the language as I did not say it.  I thought I would go with a younger version

For you younger readers I will give you the original song also that proves my children are right (even though this is before my time) I am older than dirt.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 12


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Hard to believe that our journey has brought us into day 12 already.  Time really does fly when you are having fun.

I really do hope that you have enjoyed the journey so far.

Lets stop first and see what snack our first visit is preparing so that we can at least eat as we travel.

http://rantingchef.com/author/rantingchef/ When someone is not guest blogging or he is not doing a competition, he is reviewing products for the kitchen here.  This was one of the first blogs that I began to follow.  I have even had the privilege to be able to be a guest blogger this past fall.  It was such fun.

Today he is whipping up with a tutorial a dish of http://rantingchef.com/2013/05/19/so-much-for-cooking-classes/

Green Beans with Caramelized Onions and Almonds

Now that we have our food lets travel on to our next stop:

http://fingerprintwriting.wordpress.com/

Totally pack a bag lunch before you visit this site as you are really going to be there for a while.  Elaine writes about her life and happenings in it that are real.  You are aware from the first line in each article that they are written from the heart and genuine.  I only hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Next stop since you are back now:

http://vosperdruiter.wordpress.com/ Getting a view from a Pastor of a Church, now I really hope that perhaps you at least packed a snack or two and perhaps a second bag lunch.  There is also a lot of great reading here.

Our next stop is at http://herapereira.com/ Who not only has poetry and several interesting blogs of her own but a few reblogs of interest.

Our last stop of the day since I really do need to get back to my house guest and stop being rude is:

http://womenwhothinktoomuch.wordpress.com/ If that site does not keep you busy till tomorrow, nothing will.    She has categories with subcategories that I think have subcategories. LOL

She is one busy gal.

Till tomorrow signing out,

Tammye Honey
