Is All News Negative?

I’m still flabbergasted at how negative the news coverage is in the media.  Every detail of horrible events must be laid bare, and we never hear a word about anything inspiring that occurs.  I find it hard to believe that nothing good happens in the world.  Why must we focus on the tragedies?  How about…

I Love A Parade!

Who would’ve thought we could LINE DANCE in a parade?  I never did, that’s for sure.  Line dancing is done in each person’s own area on the dance floor.  It never occurred to me that it could be done in a parade until Rob suggested it in 2013.  We debuted at Wheaton’s Thanksgiving Parade with the Cadillac…

Becoming A Better Dancer (Part 2)

Bet you thought I’d forgotten our series on becoming a better dancer.  Nope; just got a smidge distracted with the closing of Cadillac Ranch and the relocation of the danceaholics of my acquaintance.  And there are quite a few!  Spend the next few minutes with me as I delve into Part 2 (filmed during the…
