Jon on Franck Skinner

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Found this video the other day. I hadn't seen it before and it gave me a good chuckle so I thought I would share it with all of you. Jon was on with Franck Skinner right around HAND. Like I said, I got a good laugh out of it. I hope you do too.

I am sure that blogs across the web will have remembrances today and here I am adding my own.

It was the worst tragedy ever to happen on American soil. We are a nation forever changed because of it. We went to and are still at war. Too many lives have been and will be lost before this war is over. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news of that fateful day. Like many others, I was glued to the television. Then, I prayed. Even now when I think about what happened or if I happen to see pictures from that day, my heart gets heavy and I end up with tears in my eyes.

My son was four when the attacks happened. He doesn't remember and I can't forget. He will hear about it in history class I'm sure. There will be memorials and moments of silence for those who lost their lives. Prayers will be said. It will ease the ache a little, but I will never forget.

While I did not lose anyone on that tragic day, I was profoundly affected. That someone could have such callous indifference to human life I will never understand. More than 3000 souls were lost that day between New York, Pennsylvania and Washington. And for what?

I start this day, as I have everyday for the last 8 years, with a prayer for all who gave their lives and who still give their lives everyday.

A new friend has a memorial on her blog. She put together a video that brought me to tears. If you have a few minutes, click here and check it out. Read what she has to say and watch the video at the bottom.

I will never forget. And I thank all of you that are out there protecting my life and the lives of others.


Wandering Serenader...

Thursday, September 10, 2009

It seems our favorite frontman had a rather musical Labor Day Weekend in the Hamptons. He sang his way around Friday night from the Blue Parrot to Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett.

Jon Bon Jovi was a regular roving serenader on Friday, September 4th. The 47-year-old rocker once again took the guitar off the wall at his super-hyped eatery, The Blue Parrot, and performed a few numbers for diners. After his impromptu jam at The Blue Parrot, the rocker hit up Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett where he hopped up on stage with his good friend, and fellow Jersey native, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. It's not the first time the Bon Jovi frontman has surprised the crowd at the Talkhouse - he's known for making a notable appearance whenever Southside Johnny is in town. Talkhouse's Peter Honerkamp tells BlogHamptons that Jovi performed a total of three songs, one of which was "Hanging Out With My Baby."

On Saturday night, Jon and his wife Dorothea hosted a private Labor Day party at their East Hampton home. But guests looking for a repeat of his legendary 2007 holiday bash were in for a much more low-key experience. Unlike the party that made international headlines, where Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Buffett and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters formed a supergroup and performed classics like I Saw Her Standing There and Long Tall Sally, this intimate backyard fĂȘte was downright quiet in comparison and was over shortly after at 11pm.

I need to win the lottery so I can summer in the Hamptons and party like a rock star dammit!

End of Summer...

Monday, September 7, 2009

Today is Labor Day in the United States. What does that mean? Well, according to Wikipedia, it means this:

The first Labor Day in the United States was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in New York City.[1] In the aftermath of the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the US military and US Marshals during the 1894 Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland put reconciliation with Labor as a top political priority. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.[2] Cleveland was also concerned that aligning a US labor holiday with existing international May Day celebrations would stir up negative emotions linked to the Haymarket Affair.[3] All 50 U.S. states have made Labor Day a state holiday.

For most of us though, it signals the end of summer, the last of the backyard bar-be-ques and the kids going back to school. Oh, and lest I forget, that ever important sale at the mall.

We took little man to our local amusement park yesterday. I live near Lake Ontario and we have a small amusement park called Seabreeze. It is home to the third oldest wooden roller coaster in the country. Man, I love that ride.

It is also home to one of the oldest hand-carved carousel's as well. It is a nice little park, just right for a few hours of riding and sliding fun.

However you chose to spend the weekend, I hope you enjoyed yourself. Today, I'm sitting here in my living room watching the Yankee game and doing laundry. I also made chocolate chip cookies. They're my son's favorites and, since he started back to school last week, he needs a treat for his lunch, don't you think?
