The Walk Sawyer Brown

The Walk — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "The Walk" by Sawyer Brown. This song has always struck a chord with me. I lost my dad when I was eight and always wondered how different things might have been. Hope you enjoy!
A Discovery of Witches

A Discovery of Witches — What We Are Watching

BritBox and Acorn have not released a lot of new shows or series updates recently. Amazon Prime recently offered some AMC shows for free, so we decided to check out A Discovery of Witches. It is a British show with a vampire trope that Teresa really enjoys, so seemed like a great candidate to add to our steaming mix.
We Just Disagree by Dave Mason

We Just Disagree — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "We Just Disagree" by Dave Mason. This 1977 song has always been a favorite. The core message of this song has always resonated with me. It is probably even more relevant today than it was then. How about you?
Dan Fogelberg

Rhythm of the Rain

This Friday's song is "Rhythm of the Rain." I picked two versions of the song. The first is the 1962 original by the Cascades and the second the 1990 cover by Dan Fogelberg. Hope you enjoy!
Common Ground by Heath Sanders

Common Ground — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Common Ground" by Health Sanders. The theme of this song really hit me when it came across my YouTube stream last week. With war, disease, and economic turmoil continuing to disrupt the lives of millions across the globe and political/social divisions continuing to grow here in the United States, perhaps each of us should take a minute to consider that "when times runs out, we all end up in common ground."

Savour Tallahassee

December Date Night at Savour Tallahassee

We enjoyed a wonderful evening out last night at Savour Tallahassee. This was our monthly "date night" and an early New Year's Eve celebration. We want to thank our server Sam, the chef, owners Drew and Kim McLeod, and the entire staff at Savour for preparing such a great meal. It was a very romantic, satisfying , and relaxing way to wrap up the year.
Elaine Paige Singing Memory from Cats The Musical

Memory — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Memory" from the musical Cats. I chose this song because Teresa and I saw Cats in Miami on New Year's Eve in 2008. This was a little more than a month after we first met. Little did I realize how true the words from this song would be for me...
Teresa's Sándwich Cubano 2022

Teresa’s Sándwich Cubano 2022

One more food "share" for the holiday. My wife Teresa used the leftover "mojo pork" "from our Christmas Eve dinner to make me one of our holiday traditions, a sándwich cubano. I am one very lucky man.
The Flemings Christmas 2022

From Our Family to Yours

We are celebrating our fifth Christmas in Tallahassee this year. This year, I must have been an especially good boy because "Santa" made me a mincemeat pie. From our family to yours, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year!
David Bowie and Bing Crosby Perform Peace On Earth / Little Drummer Boy

Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy

This Friday's song is "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" performed by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. It is almost hard to believe it has been over forty-five years since this was performed. I remember seeing this when it was first broadcast. It was a symbolic coming together of two generations. Perhaps each of us can take a moment to listen, reflect, and find ways to do this again today. Hope you enjoy "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" performed by Bing Crosby and David Bowie.
The Everly Brothers Bye Bye Love Ed Sullivan Show 1957

Bye Bye Love — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Bye Bye Love" by the Everly Brothers. The Everly Brothers performed this song on the Ed Sullivan show several times. I chose their debut performance in 1957 and the much more mellow version they did in 1961 for this week's post. I hope you enjoy!
