THE JOKE IS ON THE COUNTRY

This is no joke, folks!

He made it into the Oval Office.

One year ago, this was unheard of.

Guess the joke is on America … and the world!

April Fools’ Day (sometimes called All Fools’ Day) is celebrated every year on April 1 by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes.

The jokes and their victims are called April fools.

People playing April Fool jokes expose their prank by shouting April Fool. Some newspapers, magazines, and other published media report fake stories, which are usually explained the next day or below the news section in small letters. Although popular since the 19th century, the day is not a public holiday in any country.

2016: A ROUGH YEAR

Unless anyone’s residence is under a rock (not for 365 days), we all know how rough this year has been.

As years come to an end, there’s usually the perennial hope that the new one will bring good tidings and better things than the one that just ended.

However, it’s my personal belief that, we are in for a rougher ride in 2017 and beyond.

I really hope that I’m proven so wrong.

These lost lives can’t be replaced.

They will live in history and in the memory of our generation.

Dignity and self-respect can’t be replaced either and it will be much harder to recover.

Honoring B.B. King …. “The King of Blues”!!

~~May 15, 2015~~

IN TRIBUTE

The Thrill is gone

Blues legend B.B. King died peacefully in his sleep Thursday night, May 14, 2015,  at his home in Las Vegas. He was 89. King won 15 Grammy Awards, released more than 50 albums, sold millions of records worldwide and was inducted into both the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. King performed more than 100 shows a year into his 80’s and was a mentor to countless musicians including Eric Clapton.

He’s perhaps best known for his song “The Thrill is Gone.”

Mississippi’s own B.B. King

Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known by his stage name B.B. King, was an American blues singer, songwriter and guitarist.

Rolling Stone ranked King number 6 on its 2011 list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time (previously ranked number 3 in the 2003 edition of the same list). He was ranked No. 17 in Gibson’s “Top 50 Guitarists of All Time“. According to Edward M. Komara, King “introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending and shimmering vibrato that would influence virtually every electric blues guitarist that followed.”

King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

He is considered one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname “The King of the Blues“, and one of the “Three Kings of the Blues Guitar” (along with Albert King and Freddie King).

King was also known for performing tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing at more than 200 concerts per year on average into his 70’s. In 1956, he reportedly appeared at 342 shows.

In 1990, King was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President George H.W. Bush. In 2006, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential blues guitarists of all time, inspiring countless other electric blues and blues rock guitarists.

Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C.

Doug’s tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette’s fierce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech. With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle.
