I agree about Small Town, USA. I use every opportunity I can to go to shows, festivals, anything that's free, etc. Coming from being a farm girl in a one blinking light "town" to Nashville, I swore I'd do anything that came my way that I could even remotely afford. I'd rather be broke and well-traveled and filled with stories of adventure than have cash and living a boring existence.
This has been my way of life ever since I moved to Nashville.
My family seems to put me down for going to college instead of joining the military.
My mom served during Vietnam. My dad joined the Marine Corps at 17 because he WANTED to go Vietnam (the war ended right after he got out of bootcamp), and my sister signed up five years ago and is on her second tour in Iraq.
Friday night marks the start of Music City’s best kept secret
For $20 (or $5 if you bring a musical instrument) you get 4 drink tickets and get to relax in beautiful Warner Park in West Nashville and listen to bluegrass music
All of the monies raised from this laid-back affair will go directly back into the parks to mitigate flood damage and to ensure preservation, protection, funding for educational programs and special projects including camp-outs for inner city kids.
Tenn. law bans posting images that "cause emotional distress"
Pictures of University of Tennessee football give me emotional distress…
"Gov. Bill Haslam signed into law this month a measure that could make posting a picture on Facebook or a blog a crime. It tweaks the harassment code, adding the transmission of "images" to the list of offenses that constitute the law. So what’s the problem? It’s insanely broad, vague and amounts to a frontal assault on constitutional protections of free speech. The bill, authored by Sens. Bill Ketron, Andy Berke, Beverly Marrero and the usual cast of House goons, including Reps. Curry Todd, Terri Lynn Weaver and Tony Shipley, requires only that the image causes “emotional distress” and was posted “without legitimate purpose.” What the hell does that mean? And who gets decide what is and isn’t legitimate?”
