Here is a brief video I uploaded about the very cool and patriotic coffee shop, Black Rifle Coffee Company"! I like what they are doing, and they have great beverages!

All of the painted horses for 2022's "Horse Mania" were on display at Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate here in Lexington. A good crowd, including myself, showed up to check things out. Here is a short video of my walk around looking at the horses!
Back in 2020, we swung through the Millersburg area on our way back from a Christmas event. I made a brief video, but I wasn't happy with it. It was short, it was dark at night, my car windows were dirty, the video goes out of focus too much.. so I never did anything with the video. Well, as there was a recent fire in this cute little town, I thought I should go back and put that video up.

Back in 2004 we took one of my all time favorite trips to Arizona. More on that later, BUT, while we were there, we saw an add about Hedberg playing a local venue that evening! We knew we had to check it out!
We actually drove right to the venue after hearing about the show. Mitch was doing two shows that evening. We got to the venue and asked about tickets. We were told the first show was sold out, and that, if we wanted to get in on the second show, we should buy the tickets now as they were almost gone. We bought them!
That was something about Mitch Hedberg... I think everyone had caught him on a late night show or something. He wasn't starring in a sitcom or anything. He was there.... he was different, and he was hysterical. I remember talking to a comedy club owner once who said that Hedberg was the only touring comic that came through that he did not have to give away tickets for.
Mitch was great that night. If you are too young to remember him, look him up now. He was just funny as heck. His deadpan/shyguy/observation humor was brilliant.
We were able to catch him again in Cleveland shortly after that. I don't remember the date, but people were calling for specific jokes from the audience. it was another great show.
AND, I remember hearing on Howard Stern one morning that he had died. It was close to (but not on) April Fools Day, and I thought that this surely must be a joke.... but it wasn't.
I still have a couple of his CDs that I play now and then. For some reason, I kept this promo card from some shows he did in Cleveland. We were getting some great talent up there! Check out the small promo for a pre-Tosh.0 Daniel Tosh!

We had a chance to visit the Andrew Johnson Homestead in Greeneville Tennessee again! On this day, we were able to do a self guided tour and we also talked to a very informative ranger! There is a copy house in town too, and we drove by it.

ANOTHER wonderful little coffee shop in Tennessee is Catalyst Coffee, in Greenville. It is inside of the General Morgan Inn, and I love their food, and their sense of mission!

The Cumberland Gap area is so pleasant... and relaxing. The town of Cumberland Gap Tennessee has about one of the most relaxed vibe coffee shops anywhere! A beautiful little stream flows right next to it!

I think Greeneville might be the most underrated town in the whole state of Tennessee. I really love this small area, as it has some cool businesses, and same great history!

I found a great WWII era matchbook cover from Kennedy General Hospital. It is defunct, but, when it was in operation, it was in Memphis!
