Comment of the Day!


I ate at Burger Fi this weekend.  On the positive side, the fries are some of the best in town.  The burgers were quite good, but a bit pricey.  I wouldn't recommend the Kobe beef hotdog; while it sounds enticing, it just wasn't that different from an ordinary dog to justify the price.  I would definitely go back when I feel like my wallet can handle it.

4 Rivers Smokehouse

Perhaps it's the fancy logo or the immaculate website that led me to believe that this 'que stand was to be more than average. What the GLOB's Eating Adventurer encountered was completely beyond expectations.  - READ MORE

Will the Trump era transform the school lunch idea?  Sec. of Agriculture Sonny Perdue has outlined how his department is loosening lunch time rules and food regulations.  - READ MORE

Pumpkin beer bar scourge

No, I don’t want a freakin’ sugar rim  Brace yourself GLOBers we’re headed into pumpkin spice season. Honestly, at this point, we should just rename “fall” to “pumpkin spice.”  - READ MORE




PUMPKIN BEER BEST SEASONAL BREW:   The GLOB has a good beer point/counterpoint argument today on the good, an bad of pumpkin beer.  Pumpkin beer gets a lot of flak. People who will sip on lemony summer ales, dark-roasted Christmas ales, but springtime saisons cry foul when Pumking and The Great Pumpkin Ale start hitting store shelves and bar tap lines

GLOBers, talking about missing the musical boat. I was excited to introduce a new songwriter to you today because I have just heard a really great tune he had written that I wanted to share with you, I got on line to search Greg Trooper out to see what kind of history I could find on the boy.  The first thing I see is a Rolling Stone story about Greg Trooper dying at an early of 61 years old in January of 2017.


Is there something in the water that is bringing down way too many important musicians, artists, songwriters lately?

From ROLLING STONE magazine:

091417Troopere250Country and Americana artist-songwriter Greg Trooper, who recorded more than a dozen albums and whose songs were cut by Vince Gill, Steve Earle, Billy Bragg, Maura O'Connell and Robert Earl Keen, among others, died Sunday, just two days after his 61st birthday. He had been battling pancreatic cancer for nearly two years. Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris and Rosanne Cash among his fervent fan base, with the latter two contributing harmony vocals to his records. He returned to New York City, settling in Brooklyn in 2008, and continued to record, with his 13th and final album, Live at the Rock Room, recorded in Austin, released in 2015.

091417UpsideWhat I like about the best radio station, on the planet is the plethora of really good songwriters on the perimeter of the music world that have something to share. Greg trooper's Nobody in the whole wide world fits that bill. A couple of weeks ago I sent NOBODY out on my music email list declaring, this song has an unbelievably cool groove." It has only been in the last week when I listened to the NOBODY lyrics G. Trooper was making a statement about jerk boyfriends, partners. Mr. Trooper is obviously speaking form a first person perspective regarding a seriously failed relationship. I empathize with him and this song. I have a friend in a bad relationship that is tough getting out of. After I sent NOBODY to her I suggested this song should be the battered women of the world's theme song:

You and your boyfriend ought to call it quits
He buys you clothes but they never fit
They're always two or three sizes small
Don't think it's you that he wants at all
Nobody thinks that he's the man for you
Nobody in the whole wide world
Nobody In The Whole Wide world
Greg Trooper
