I listen to a lot of podcasts and books on my mp3 machine (currently by droid phone). I really enjoyed most all of the below books from podiobooks.com -- they are all free to listen to - donations welcome.
We went to the Florida Folk Festival in White Springs. It was plenty fun except for the rain. One of my new favorite bands was the Peters Road Swamp Blues Band
Here is a sample I found on Youtube
Bike ride Saturday afternoon took me by the Chalk Festival .... really good art. I need to go by today and see the finished artwork... Thanks to all who kept this going in a down year.
I went by for a while ... it was a good crowd with lots of beer ... and a band from last year... AC/DC coverband ... good for all ages.node/2866/track
The battles of Lexington and Concord were fought on April 19, 1775. Reading the account in wikipeda it makes one think about the courage the locals showed ... and wonder why they were so motivated to make change happen ... was it really just taxes? Bet they didn't pay anywhere near what we pay now....
So at last weeks Tea Party Sarasota had a few hundred well healed people out with signs protesting while back then they had over 2,000 people out with guns ready to fight the British.
Certainly times are very different but it's worth reading this account of what happen. They were fighting for personal freedom
PS I am 100% against violence to achieve anything worthwhile ... so I am not advocating a violent revolution.... more of a rEVOLution
I saw this on Creative Loafing's coverage of the "Tea Party" in Sarasota. Most of the pictures were fine -- some of them pretty funny signs.
But I think this one is way out of line.... there is no way we have had 200 years of great government .... and I just don't think President Obama is any worse that the previous occupants of the White House... especially based on the short time he has been there..
