The Egg in Albany, filled as fans scrambled in, each one, eggcited about seeing Kenny Wayne Shepherd. As I spoke to those waiting for the show, it occurred to me how many of these fans have seen this band before–many times before.  True followers, they came knowing what to eggspect, and they were not disappointed.

Friday the 13th- at The Strand Theater in Hudson Falls… The Magic of The Demon was summoned. We were jolted back in time to 1982 In a true to the artist tribute, KISSTORY put on an unbelievably accurate show. Starting with makeup and costumes, (taking 60-90 minutes) all the way to the photos with  fans […]

I had taken a big leap into my vagabond life with Paul when I was still pretty young, became a mother two days after my twenty-second birthday, and moved from one coast to another and back again twice. We’d settled in upstate New York because […]

I always said that if any of my partner ever got violent, I would not stay with him. I had become accustomed to physical and emotional abuse at an early age, but although I knew that I couldn’t tolerate physical abuse anymore, the emotional abuse was harder to recognize. Maybe I was also a bit […]

This is a (pretty much mostly) true story of the stupidest person I have ever met. One could say he’s as dumb as a box of rocks, but that would insult the rocks. Shakespeare would say it is “a tale told by an idiot,” I say it is a tale told ABOUT an idiot. Forrest […]
