Video Tour Of Palo Duro Canyon


If you've never visited Palo Duro Canyon near Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle you have messed out on something really neat. During the summer months, the musical 'Texas' may be seen here. Just the other day I found this video tour of Palo Duro Canyon on YouTube and wanted to share it with you here. Whether you've visited there or not, this video is good quality and it even offers subtitles to help you understand what you are seeing along the way. Enjoy!

America Needs Another John Wayne


When I was growing up in the 1960's and 1970's my father always took me to movies starring John Wayne. When I look at the world today, it's clear that this country needs another John Wayne. A strong man who always knew the difference between right and wrong was something we use to take for granted here in America. Today, it seems like what use to be right is now wrong and everything is falling apart. The last time John Wayne spoke to the American people was at the Oscars in 1978. I remember watching that live back then and still to this day miss the positive impact he had on all of us.

Do You Choose Uber Or Taxi?


I am curious and would like to get feedback from folks who have used the personal car service called Uber. I have seen ads for it for a long time, but never had the guts to try it. It's clear that traditional taxi companies do not like Uber and it seems like they are working overtime to put them out-of-business. Galveston and Midland have passed ordinances to try and put the same rules on Uber as other transportation companies, but in each case Uber made the decision to leave those cities instead of following the new rules. I wonder if Uber is just the latest 'flash in the pan' idea or will they be around for the long run? Comment below or via Facebook and Twitter.
