  • Pearl Corporation to sponsor Leith

    Post-World War II ushered in a time for new musical influences such as jazz, swing, and rock and roll. This created a new generation of musicians who needed affordable musical instruments, which, at that time, were in scarce supply. Recognizing this need, Katsumi Yanagisawa started Pearl Percussion in a small factory in Tokyo on April 2, 1946. Since that time Pearl Corporation (now operating a permanent management, distribution, and warehouse facility in Nashville, Tenn.), has grown into a world-wide concern selling all manner of percussion instruments and equipment.

  • And, the No. 1 Christmas song of all time is...

    I’m a sucker for Christmas tunes. When select radio stations begin their seasonal foray to get us all in the shopping mood, I’m all in.
    For two solid months out of the year, my car radio is set so that I do not miss Alvin, Simon and Theodore chiming “The Chipmunk Song.”
    I thought it would be easy to pin down my top 10 Christmas songs... after all, I have done plenty of “research.”

  • No such thing as flunking

    This week I turned 57.
    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing. The Protestant definition of a saint is simply a follower of Jesus.
    However, that doesn’t seem enough. There should be more to it than that. For instance, by now I should have at least the beginning buds of a halo or be able to say no to temptation eight out of 10 times — or two out of 10!
    But the truth is, I still struggle.

  • Mistletoe evident in tree tops

    I like the winter landscape because I can see past the green canvas of summer into neighboring fields where horses graze and a pet cow that is almost as old as me slumbers. I can see mistletoe everywhere, too; driving down the interstate, walking in the park, sitting at a traffic light.  It is there if you look into the canopies of trees devoid of their leafy-ness.
    We are obviously not the first to notice round globs of greenery nestled in tree tops.
