APtravelnews-January15th, FL.- Bob taking time to be off the road for a change with some comments and pictures of the week. It has become clear that the whole world somehow has forgotten that Jerusalem is the actual and true capital of Israel. Thousands of years, it has been, even through the Diaspora. For 67-years Israel (as predicted in the Old Testament Bible) has been a true country, doing incredible things for all aspects of life for its people; Jews, and everyone else that’s a part of this incredible and great nation-state, as well as in the medical, tech and agricultural innovations for the whole world.
APtravelnews-November 21st, Florence, AL.-Bob and Barb On The Road Again-We spent several days in Florence, and what we saw and enjoyed is available for every traveler to this magnificent part of Alabama. Hard on Pickwick Lake, off Muscle Shoals and the TN. River, lies more fine restaurants, music venues and museums. If you have already read our last week’s post about W.C. Handy, Handy is considered the “Father of the Blues.” He was born in a simple log cabin in 1873, but with his love and single-mindedness to create music, he made a large impact on American Blues music now played, heard and enjoyed around the world. The last evening before we left Florence, AL. we were treated to a “Night at the Museum.” The exhibits at the Alabama Music Hall of Fame in Tuscumbia came to life for us. Barbara and I enjoy live music, this night we had our wish, we are enthralled by the history of all music as we feel it is the best expression of mans highest endeavor, that of creation for sheer joy for them and everyone else to be shared. We did have a magical evening of fun, entertainment and non-stop music as we visited with some of the shining stars in the music industry. We met writers, musicians and performers. We mixed and mingled with great music legends such as Jimmy Johnson, Spooner Oldham, Donnie Fritts, Rick Hall, Secret Sisters, Gary Nichols, Travis Wammack, Jerry Philips, Harvey Thompson, Mickey Buckins, Mark Narmore, Foster Family, Mitch Mann, Roger Clark, Marty Raybon, Jim Seales, Mike McGuire and Walt Aldridge.
