These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

The Star Spangled Banner


Do you have a few minutes? Good. Get a cuppa something, if you want, then sit down and have a listen.

When we were kids in school we all heard the story of The Star Spangled Banner, right? But either I'm so old my memory is failing me or in my childish foolishness I didn't listen, or .... what I really think .... the whole story was not taught in school. What is on the following audio clip just blows my mind and warms my patriotic soul. And it should be taught to kids more than once so hat the listen and remember it. It is an amazing story.

Now click, listen and be amazed at the history of our national anthem, and ending with one of the most beautiful renditions of it I've heard.
