On this Memorial Day

Image
Once again, Memorial Day is upon us. What strikes me with each passing year is that we are losing members of The Greatest Generation. I am fortunate enough to remember that generation, but I weep for future ones who will not experience their presence. The positive angle to that feeling is we have technology which preserves their memory.

On this post, I'm sharing two videos related to Memorial Day. The first is a natural sound package shot at Arlington National Cemetery, titled Old Guard. The video was shot by Bob Kovach. The project was released in 2008. The second video features an Atlanta resident whose front yard is a tribute to Normandy.

Why not re-brand the CDC

With all of the talk about the federal budget these days and cuts to certain departments, why not do a lot more privatizing? Take the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention here in Atlanta - since they will be seeing serious cuts, I suppose President Donald J. Trump could simply take the place over as a hotel/center to watch out for diseases. The president could kill two birds with one stone. Visitors to Atlanta could stay the night and if they so choose, go looking for diseases and how to deal with them.

I met a 'Big Shot' at the Billy Joel show

Back on April 28th this year, I got the chance to get an interview with Mike DelGuidice, guitarist/vocalist for Billy Joel. The result is the following feature that I put together. I hope that you will all enjoy.  Click the image below to view this video feature:
