Hello everyone. DBN here. It’s February 29, 2012. Happy Leap Day you All!! I am back. Back to give my comments, thoughts, advice, or whatever. I got a blog and I’m not afraid to use it.
Sorry to be off the air for so long.
I made a big move
from Sunny Southern California, to the burbs of our Nation’s Capitol. You know,
that funny little place with the monuments, museums, executive mansion,
government buildings, and all those places that use the alphabet more than
soup. Of course it’s Washington D.C. You figure it would be cold. It’s colder
than California, strangely enough the weather here hasn’t been all that bad.
We’ve only had less than 2 inches of snow. As I speak, the Washington area is
on pace to be the third least snowiest in history. For me great, don’t have to
worry about slipping and sliding all over the place. The temperatures have
actually been above average. We have
quite a few days that have been in 50’s and 60’s.
So far the winter here has been absent. I heard on the weather that the upper Midwest is getting hammered with cold weather today. Just hope it doesn’t come here. It’s supposed to get to 70 on March 1, Coming in like a lamb. Just our luck that we get a late season Arctic blast that dumps eight inches of snow. At least I got some salt for the sidewalks and a shovel. What I don’t use for this year, there’s always next year.
Couple of side notes:
Just before this year’s Grammys we lost a musical icon. Whitney Houston. Her voice has been silenced at the age of 48. Her golden voice left an impression that you would
never ever forget. Remember the National Anthem at Super Bowl XXV. The New York
Giants beat the Buffalo Bills on a last minute field goal and her rendition of
the ‘Star Spangled Banner went gold. Wow. It’s unfortunate that she herself had
some personal demon within her life, but thankfully we have her CDs and DVD of
her performing both as a singer and actress. The last movie she completed will be
coming soon. I think a lot of people will see it.
Whitney Houston – 1963 to 2012
‘I Will Always Love You’ –
Also in the month of February, we lost another musical icon. The man who created a forever classic ‘Soul Train’, Don Cornelius. He had an unmistakable velvet smooth voice
who as host introduce the world some of the greatest acts in the Black Music
World. I was a teenager in the 1970’s and I remember those great shows. One
show comes to mind of Joe Tex doing ‘I Gotcha’ and the dance moves of his were
amazing. Don was 75. Thank you for a great time.
Don Cornelius – 1936 to 2012
“As Always, we wish you love, peace, and soul!”
That’s all for now. See you in March
