“What Are Men Good For?”
March 31, 2013. Just a minor, and in no way controversial, subject. Steubenville. Dead Possums. I attempt to connect some far-flung dots, as I do each week. Can I do it?

Just up: a few highlights from my recent speech to the Grapevine (Texas) Historical Society. Funnier than it may sound…
I also invite you to listen to Darfur Lullaby, the version sung by the fabulous LZ Love, and produced by the equally fabulous Grammy-winning Michael J. Lewis.
My speech to the Grapevine (Texas) Historical Society on February 28 was really fun, and a trip down memory lane. Nothing like giving a speech to 100 or so people who’ve known you all your life. Not sure how I managed to come up with a few stories they hadn’t heard before. Thanks to everyone who showed up, and reminding me what it was that made growing up in a small town so special.
“Santa, Won’t You Bring Me a Valentine?”
An award-winning retro salute to Christmas songs of the past, it’s half “Santa Baby”, half “I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”.
If this song makes you smile, PLEASE download a copy HERE.
It’s only $.99 and every download goes to support the girls of Santa Julia, a home for displaced girls in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Casa Hogar Santa Julia is home to 32 girls, ages 3 to 18. Some are orphans, some have been removed from home by social services, and some are there because their families simply could not provide for them. It’s run by five Dominican Sisters, and is entirely dependent on donations like yours.
Come on, just one little Valentine for the girls of Santa Julia?

A big thanks, too, to my collaborator and co-conspirator on this video, photographer and artist Lisa Shackelford. Check out her fabulous work at www.lisashackelfordartist.com
