I learned some really FUN things this week…
#1… First and foremost, kudos to Sarin for giving me the gift of a FREE Flickr Pro account this week! What that means is now I can put even MORE of our photos on Flickr (perhaps the world’s best online photo sharing site) with 2 GIGS of uploads per month (rather than 20 MEG), UNLIMITED storage, AD-FREE browsing, and UNLIMITED photosets and features.
How generous of a fellow blogger to share the love with someone he doesn’t even know — all with the aim of “keepin it real” in the Blogging community.
Now I feel compelled to do a “good deed” for another blogger in return… I love ya man!
#2… Jim and I finally figured out the one (very SMALL) thing that was making our Tennessee Bloggers site not “Firefox Friendly“… Now everything appears to be A-ok. That was a major accomplishment. (Thanks to our fellow TN Bloggers who waited patiently for this “fix”.)
#3… Word is… Don Ellis (a singer/songwriter who’s been with numerous bands/groups/duos in Nashville) has joined forces with two other guitarist-singers under the name Savannah Jack. I caught him singing their first single on Tennessee Mornings a few weeks ago. Can’t wait to see what comes of this…
Listen to Bud Light’s Real Men of Genius ”Mr. King of the Karaoke Mic”:
#4… None other than Donald Rumsfeld, the Secretary of Defense, was in Nashville this past weekend, and it appears that he made a stop at the Grand Ole Opry!
I saw on the GAC channel that night that Dolly Parton was the host of the show, and she invited him to come up for some sort of pre-rehearsed-supposed-to-look-impromtu-speech on stage.
#5… Did you know that the contestants on American Idol get $400 ‘n some dollars to put toward their wardrobe each and every week?! I heard that on Bob & Tom one morning. That’s reason enough to try to sing good for another week, don’t ya think? I could use a few weeks’ worth of $400 wardrobe upgrades.
#6… I spotted this billboard on the way to work today: “The forks are ready… are you? Answer: McDonalds on May 9th”
What are they Mc-up to now?!
All I know is, since they did away with bagels in the morning (our fave was bacon, egg & cheese on a toasted bagel), we haven’t visited McDonald’s in ages…
#7… Did you know that people are now using their cell phones at concerts instead of lighters to signal an encore? Yep, the soft glowing light that emanates from a cell phone can now be used to light the night! It appears to be a tradition started by today’s mobile youth. According to those great news broadcasters, Bob & Tom, rocker Bono noticed his fans doing this one night and took advantage of the opportunity by inviting them to all call one of his charities.
