When in Memphis, you have to go to the National Civil Rights Museum

When you think of Memphis, what comes to mind? Elvis and Graceland. Music on Beale Street. Sun and Stax studios. Barbeque! Yet all pale in comparison to the National Civil Rights Museum.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
