A Rough Thing To Do

When I think about my past behavior, especially over the last few years, I’m amazed.  WHAT was I thinking?  I just can’t believe so many of the things I did.  HOW was I operating?  I don’t even recognize myself.  Can I be forgiven for what I’ve done?  Can I forgive MYSELF?  Now I “get it”…

Today’s Performance RESCHEDULED

Ah, the delight of dancing outdoors!  We're always at the mercy of the weather. Attendance is light at the West Chicago Pool today due to the threat of storms, so they'll be closing early.  Therefore, today's performance has been rescheduled to NOON on September 3rd.  Hope to see you there, and before! We do have a few more…

Impossible? It’s Up To US!

As you may or may not know, I was raised on the original Star Trek series, and I simply love it.  Although The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine are high on my list of favorite TV series, nothing compares to Kirk, Spock, & McCoy.  No matter how improbable a situation the crew was faced…

Do You Swear?

Day after day people say, “I swear to God” –  which amuses me, since so many of those same fine folks would say they either don’t believe in God or have very little to do with Him.  Yet His name continues to be used as a measuring stick for people’s promise that they are telling…

Pray For France

Once again another senseless act of terrorism has occurred; this time in France. You've probably heard of the driver who plowed people down at the Bastille Day celebration yesterday.  Horrific, evil, and inexcusable…and though the driver was killed by police, the damage has been done, and dozens of people lost their lives or were injured. …

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…

Will YOU Try Everything?

Last weekend was SUCH A HIGH!  We danced and played all weekend long; what a fabulous time was had celebrating America’s birthday!  Thank you for joining me!  One of the songs we danced to in the Independence Day parades was TRY EVERYTHING, from the movie Zootopia (make sure you see this movie!!  It’s one of the…

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…
