Geography Div (what you can't find out any longer subsection)

Chanced upon this little tidbit from the WaPo.
There's a link to a nice little interactive map of where Presidents lived in the GWTP (and surrounding area) before moving to the White House.
My, My. How times have changed, eh ?

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div

Found this "fun" little ditty while looking for posts. Always enjoyed Ned Luberecki on Sirius XM (until they screwed me on my renewal). So, have a listen to Chris Jones and the Nightdrivers doing his "perfect Bluegrass song," Cabin of Death followed by Chris Jones' If You're Willin'.

Geography Div (more from the Y'all subsection)

Aw heck, let's keep pickin' on 'em.


Deja vu Div (all over again subsection)

Jim Wright over at Stonekettle Station has pretty much summed up my feelings on the current foreign policy discourse occuring down in the GWTP and in the media. It's long, and at times repetitive, but, if you care and have the memories I do, it deserves your time and attention.

A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div

There's a group of pickers and singers that I jam with a couple of times a month here in the Hills. I seems at the end of the evening, this song is always played.
Written By Carter and Ralph Stanley, here's Who Will Sing For Me ?


Ricky Skaggs - lead vocal and guitar, Doc Watson and Earl (betcha didn't know he played guitar) Scruggs - harmony/chorus vocal and guitar.
