      I love driving long lonely back highways, I drive the same road at least 50 times a year 50 miles each way. I love to see the change of seasons, the change of the landscape, the American flags,the crops coming to fruition, the same old local places, “Hawg Heaven” and on and on πŸ™‚.

      Sometimes when I’m alone I play my music loud sometimes I just enjoy the silence.

      So much great travel music out there.

        Appealing voice. Not having heard of him before, checked him out. According to Wiki, he’s a Brit, born in 1983, has worked with some well known people, but he hasn’t recorded anything for two years. His website isn’t updated…shows his last tour date was in April 2016. Wonder what he’s doing.

        There are so many young men and women like Holden who come and go in the music and film worlds. I think back on the young series leads and supporting casts I worked with in the film industry, most of whom had a short success and then faded back into the real world–some by choice, most not. Others had quite a bit of fame that didn’t last but they continued hanging on; a couple who made it very big.

        A harsh business. It’s no wonder that they play the political game and whatever conservative moral, political, economic thoughts they might have are suppressed. What gets lost in the process isn’t given a great deal of thought when it comes to a chance to be famous. Bucking the lefties means no more work, no chance at fame, no nothing. Convictions…expendable.

          I don’t know if not being politically correct was a hindrance for Holden, although he is a straight man, one of his most commercially successful songs is “Kissing boys in the streets”. I’d like to think that he made the same decision as Andrew Ridgeley of Wham! fame, take the money and run, enjoy life and being anonymous. Don’t bow to the pressures of the Label.

          I would say that most of the big stars in Hollywood and in the music industry are vapid narcissists who never really grow the logical reasoning side of their brains, they are minions, like the popular kids at school terrified of making a misstep and being on the outs with in crowd. So I guess in general I don’t think they really give up their convictions for fame and fortune but they never really grow centered convictions to start with, especially those who start out while they are young in the industry. I don’t think many of them are beyond the age of 3 or 4 emotionally.

            Lovely, I’ve met, been acquainted with, worked with/for, and on occasion been personal friends with many big and small names…from actors to producers to writers to directors to craftspeople, stagehands, etc. I’ve met only a few really dumb ones, though I’ve read about quite a number who seem a few bricks less than a wall.

            Most actors formed their need to display their talents at a young age and didn’t think they had time to develop interests beyond what would get them ahead in the industry. There are many wonderful people in the film industry, though. I’ve met fine Christians who are knowledgeable and very versed in Scripture. Those I’ve known of other faiths are informed about history, art, music, literature. We hear only about the mess-ups, the lefties, the ignorant…because that’s what the media covering the business is selling. The old newspaper saying of “If it bleeds, it leads” applies. But also remember the saying, “Money talks!”

            It’s only been in the last, perhaps, twenty years that lefties have almost completely taken over the music, stage, TV and feature film industries. Before that, you might get some gentle ribbing about being a conservative or a Republican (being a leftie myself until after Clinton’s Presidency, I did my share of this), but it wasn’t a deal breaker when it came to hiring. And, of course, many huge stars were vocal Republicans in the past…Gable, Wayne, Cooper, Stewart, Ginger Rogers, Claudette Colbert, to name a few.

            Lefties in the entertainment field can still be beat back somewhat if everyone who understands how destructive the socialist philosophy is bands together and supports films, actors, writers, etc. who want to keep politics out of the business. A lot of work, of course, in keeping informed of who/what/when/where. However, if we couple this with never again patronizing those who make it their life’s goal to force everyone to kneel to leftism, it will go a long way toward bringing the business back to sanity.

              You have personal experience I don’t and I tend to forget about the good guys like John Wayne , I didn’t know the others that you mentioned were christians or conservatives. But again I’m not involved in any way with them or the industry so I don’t get to see who they are or were before they became the hollywood version of themselves.

              Thanks Lucille for sharing your knowledge.

              We have Scott Baio, James Woods, Ted Nugent, Clint Eastwood and a few others who stand for America and sanity. I still believe that most of today’s “stars” are evil personified. I think they display that evil every chance they get.

      ……especially if I’m in the middle of Montana or anywhere that is 75 miles from the nearest town and it’s only a two lane and there are no electrical lights to be seen at night but there are a billion stars and an occasional four-legged animal crossing the road (or three or four of them) and it’s not below zero or above 50(F) and I have a cooler in the back with sandwich bread and summer sausage and fig newtons and I’m not expected anywhere for three days and it’s either before cell phones or I’m out of cell phone range or I have turned my cell phone off after notifying those one or two family members who might care about that……like I said – oh, goodness……

    It seems the MSM has Melania and President Trump divorcing again. Apparently they had an award handshake at an event.

    Perhaps at some point the morons should be a little culturally aware (I really like saying that about the Left 😏 ) . Melanie is European. Old school. She is not going to be overly affectionate in a public forum especially where they are in the official roles of FLOTUS and POTUS. Of course it is awkward to shake your husband’s hand.

    I’ll never forget reading the autobiography of Maria Augusta von Trapp, Maria had met a gentleman at a social party that was a very upscale event. Later that week she saw the same man emptying her garbage bin into the back of a garbage truck. Maria quickly turned away and walked speedily toward her door, it was bad form, a sign of an arrogant snob to take notice of the man’s station in life and she didn’t want to embarrass him. Then the man yelled out to her β€œMaria! Maria!” She turned around smiled at him awkwardly, waved and still rushed into her house.

    Somehow they met again at another party or somewhere and they chatted, Maria was shocked that it was not good form in America to pretend that she hadn’t seen that he was a garbage man. The guy had a good laugh and Maria learned that the strict social restrictions of Europe were not part of the American culture.

    It is obvious that Melania carries some of that European social properness with her.

    Cox and Spectrum are investigating who sent out the alert and whether it was done accidentally or on purpose. It was unclear where the audio came from.

    β€œWe have confirmed that we were fed an incorrect audio file,” said Dennis Johnson, a spokesman for Spectrum.

    It hasn’t been determined if the audio in the alert is related to a prophecy by David Meade, a self-described β€œspecialist in research and investigations” who believes catastrophic events will occur Saturday.

    He predicts a constellation – a sign prophesied in the Book of Revelation – will reveal itself in the skies over Jerusalem, signaling the beginning of the end of the world, according to the Washington Post.

    I’ll be catering a wedding when the world ends, I guess. Stuffing mushrooms with crab stuffing. Moving tables and chairs. Dicing tomatoes. Calling out “Heard!” to Chef.

    I thought the other day, where would I rather be, when the world ends. At work, is what I decided.

    I weighed the options. Sitting on a Caribbean beach with an umbrella drink? Well, that’s out. So’s their power. Southern Mexico. in a nice villa somewhere? Nope. I’m good.

    Michigan will probably survive. I mean, look at it. It’s a big ‘ol hand, waving at God.

  11. lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
