After Mother's Day, the week really slid by me. Workload for me has not let up very much, but Friday wasn't too bad. I just still didn't get any chance to post. Now the weekend has been a little different story. Laziness was all that prevented my posting. Despite the storms around the areas, and the flooding in Millington, and of course Nashville the rain has been persistent off and on through the week, and it's back again this afternoon. More thunder, lightening and all of that.
Not that I mind as long as it isn't flooding or more damage for the people who've already suffered issues because of it. If anyone was wondering (since I did get a few emails and so forth asking if we were o.k. here), there were flooded parts of our area, but nothing like Nashville, or the area above Memphis, Millington. So far so good here. Anyways, that's about it on the rain front.
I know my blog time has been severely less lately, and my posts have not been much which I don't like because I do enjoy blogging and intend to keep going. I just haven't had enough time to think of anything good and time to post it...
Hopefully I'll do better in the days to come.
Now then, what prompted me to blog is about another Celebrity death, Ronnie James Dio, Heavy Metal god in his own right and also once lead singer of Black Sabbath after Ozzy. I've never been the hugest fan of Dio's vocals, but he is extremely revered in the Metal Community. I respect him for his legend and his music itself even though I wasn't that much into it. So evidently, Dio had been battling Stomach Cancer for a while, and lost the battle.
Well, another sad moment in Rock, and the hearts of his millions of fans. I know he is out there in the Cosmos throwing us all his infamous "Goat Sign" and would if he could tell us that everything is gonna be alright.
Rock on Dio, and I know you will. Read Full Article On Dio's Death
Here's a little tribute to Dio, if you have ever seen "Tenacious D" (Jack Black & Kyle Gass) you'll know what these are about. If not, you should look them up and check out "Tenacious D" for sure... it's been around a while, but they're hilarious.
I give you Tenacious D playing "Heaven & Hell"
And Tenacious D singing their own "Dio"
R.I.P.D = Rock In Peace Dio!
