New Year's Isn't Coming (OS Archive - 2010)

As we stood out on the sunny meadow last July at our god-daughter's wedding reception, my husband and I sipped champagne and gazed at all the beautiful young adults, including our sons, gathered to celebrate.

In my memory, this entire wedding day was filtered through a golden glow.

The bride was radiant and lovely; we watched as her shy husband's gaze followed her throughout the afternoon, as if he could hardly believe his luck at marrying…

I'm a Believer in The Monkees

Micky Dolenz, Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork, and Davy Jones. If you are of a certain age you know exactly who those four men are. If not and you're curious, welcome to my little tribute to The Monkees. 

 

Originally brought together to make a TV show in 1966 featuring a band in a Beatles-esque fashion, producer Don Kirshner (anyone remember the late night 70's TV show Don Kirshner's Rock Concert?) was brought in secure music for the show. The four were hired…

Keith Richards: You Can't Always Get What You Want

 

 

 

Keith Richards is a hard livin', hard drinkin', hard workin' man. It's a bit surprising to me that he's still with us and rocking with The Rolling Stones given the addictions he's battled over the years. Having been tried on drug charges on five different occasions, Richards battled heroin addiction and cocaine use for decades. He seems to have come out of it all in one piece and celebrated his 67th birthday Dec. 18th. Love him or hate him,…

Riding The Pink Pig ~ A Not So Jolly Holiday Story (OS Archive - 2010)

We had been standing in line for ages that December day, a long snake of chattering children, mothers, and grandmothers, slowly inching up through the department store's levels. My gloved hand was clutched in my mother's, she and I standing silently together in this cheerful crowd of well-dressed humanity. 

This was my mother's and my first experience taking part in a long-standing Southern Christmas Tradition.

We were going to ride The Pink Pig at Rich's Department…

Where are Woodward and Bernstein when we need them?

originally published Dec. 2, 2010 on Open Salon

The following began as a comment on Scanner's latest post:http://open.salon.com/blog/scanner/2010/11/26/fat_catslivin_large_and_in_charge 

The question was posed today about how the American economy's money is being sucked up by the very rich: Where are Woodward and Bernstein now that we need them? The fact that they…
