Not much to say this evening... so much badness going on. Please have good thoughts, though, for all the people affected by the tornados. Seems as though we can't catch a break in this neck of the woods.

A note from Phil S 33 and Lorinda Pike...

GW's--- a challenge:  In an effort to aid our friends through-out the South; how about a donation challenge that we all buy into.  Honor system: what you pledge, we hope you will follow thru.

How about a $1, or two, or your choice---for every 10 comments in this diary, each of us ponies up their alloted pledge to give to either Red Cross; or an agency of your choice in those states???

I will start by offering $2 for every 10 comments in the Block Party diary....
so if there are 158 comments----I owe $30.

Set your own limits----and let's make the comments legitimate----not ginning the entries.

Let's help the families in our little small way, because a mile-wide tornado doesn't care how you vote.....

Thank you.


However, when I feel less than comfortable with what's going on around me, I sometimes retreat to music. Slow stuff would make it worse, so then...I'll feel the need to just rock out.

Oh well, it's only rock 'n roll, but I like it...

and we can dream of some Easy Living...

taking a Free Ride...

get funky with the James Gang...

keep that Mississippi moon shining on me...

and carry on...

but it doesn't have to be rock 'n roll, although Beethoven was a rockstar in his day...

as was Vivaldi... through all four seasons, but Winter is my favorite...

and last... my favorite guitarist...yes, he is strange...but so am I.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
