Comment of the Day!

  I've eaten at the Alachua Mi Apa location many times and never had a bad meal. The Cuban and Miami sandwiches are the best.  

The Daily GLOB


Happy Wednesday!

GLOBmaster2017 Good morning GLOBers and a very Happy National Grilled Cheese Day!  Now this is a good idea.  I would be OK with NGCD happening every week.   Did you know U.S. government cookbooks describe Navy cooks broiling "American cheese filling sandwiches" during World War II.  Oh man, you say grilled cheese and I'm thinking SweetBerries Eatery and Frozen Custard Wisconsin Grilled Cheese with cheddar, provolone, and Muenster cheese and  with bacon, tomato, and avocado slices.  YIKES somebody get me one right now!

It’s funny to me how I always come back to my old reliable songwriters when I am at a loss for a good song to share. There are not many song smiths with a bigger cataloge of great songs than the West Texas Songwriter Robert Earle Keen. Drinking songs, friendship tunes, story songs, and love ballads. We have talked about a lot of them here on Poetry Jam Thursday.

It would be hard for me to pick a favorite REK tune. Most of the time the feelings of a good song working on me depends on the mood I am in. Today it is all about growing up. Maturation. Recognizing there is a time, place for everything. That is the good lesson learned in this story/song about brothers titled Chorpus Chistie Bay.


041218REK200Among the large contingent of talented songwriters who emerged in Texas in the 1980s and '90s, Robert Earl Keen struck an unusual balance between sensitive story-portraits (Corpus Christi Bay) and raucous barroom fun (That Buckin' Song). These two song types in Keen's output were unified by a mordant sense of humor that strongly influenced the early practitioners of what would become known as alternative country music. In February 2015 Keen returned to John T. Floores Country Store in Helotes, Texas to play a concert celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the No. 2 Live Dinner album. The show was recorded for posterity, and was released in 2016 as Live Dinner Reunion. The album included a number of Keen's best-known tunes, as well as guest appearances from Joe Ely, Lyle Lovett, Cody Canada, and Bruce Robison.

Friendship is on a shelf all by itself in the GLOB Master’s list of important qualities. Brothers, long time friends, best buds, special, personal relationships with women. I hold those relationships dear to my heart. For me it is an unqualified love that never goes away. I think I need to talk to Mr. Keene because I see, hear, a lot of those same feelings, bonding coming out in his songs.

I lived in corpus with my brother
We were always on the run
We were bad for one another
But we were good at having fun
We got stoned along the seawall
We got drunk and rolled a car
We knew the girls at every dance hall
Had a tab at every bar
- Chorpus Christie Bay
-- Robert Earle Keen

Regarding beef stew GLOBers I don't mind saying my daddy taught me the perfect beef stew recipe.  Now I'm not really sure about trying any other BS recipes if you know what i'm talking about?
