I hadn't planned on doing a #MusicMonday until I read that Joe Cocker died today. He was only 70. Whether you like his music or not, you must admit he was an original. I'll never forget the time he was on Saturday Night Live in 1976 and John Belushi joined him for a very funny duet by two Cockers. Now they are both gone. Here is Joe's biggest solo hit which reached #5 in 1975, You Are So Beautiful. RIP Joe -

Surely the world is about to end. There has been a bright yellow disk in the sky over the D/FW area all day (12/22). It seems to be radiating warmth. Will we all burn as it gets closer? Sacrifice your first born immediately and maybe we will be spared.
Gotta add a #TuneTuesday. Today is the 50th anniversary of one of the Civil Rights anthems. It was originally released as the "B" side of a 45 (kids, ask your parents or grandparents what a 45 is). It was a minor hit at the time reaching #9 on the R&B chart and #31 on the Hot 100. Since then it has been covered by thousands. Here is the song written and performed by the great Sam Cooke.

I'm guessing that some heads are going to roll (literally) in the IT & network support ranks in North Korea.
There must be something going on. I decided to stop by Kroger this afternoon (12/24) while I was out riding, you can never have too much beer in the fridge. The place was jammed with frantic looking people, many who looked lost and at least one who was drunk. Very unusual for a Wednesday afternoon.
People who live in dirty glass houses shouldn't cast aspersions -
