Just saw the following headline on Huffington Post. This is truly a sad day………..
Neil was a Navy Veteran, flying combat missions during the Korean. He was also a test pilot and a veteran of both a Gemini and an Apollo NASA spaceflight. He will always be remembered as the first man to set foot on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission. Many of you were probably not around to watch the Apollo 11 mission as it happened. If you are interested in the details, I encourage you to watch the following six part CBS documentary based on the actual live coverage of the mission by Walter Cronkite. For what its worth, Walter was the best damn news anchor of all time (RIP Walter!).
Finally….I offer up Anchors Aweigh, the Navy song, in tribute to Neil’s amazing service to the US.
This week our word of the week is Hurricane. Unfortunately, we currently have Hurricane Isaac headed into the Gulf of Mexico. Don’t know for sure which direction it will head at this point but it certainly has everyone’s attention. So….while we are watching to coverage of Isaac, and keeping our finger’s crossed that it doesn’t cause any significant damage, let’s listen to some of the best Hurricane songs ever recorded.
After listening to the music, please take the time to read my note after the last song in the post. Have a great weekend!
Hurricane Carter – Bob Dylan
Rock You Like a Hurricane – Scorpions (with full orchestra)
Like a Hurricane – Neil Young
Hurricane – 30 Seconds to Mars
Republicans/Right Wing Evangelicals: Earthquakes,Hurricanes,Terrorist Attacks-God’s Punishment
Hmm……..I wonder what they will say if Hurricane Isaac hits Tampa and the Republican National Convention next week??????
