I read this story this week about this amazing woman.  Viola Smith has been called the counterpart of Gene Krupa.  I know that you are going to enjoy getting to know Viola and I have embedded a video of her playing those drums for your enjoyment.  As Viola says:

‘Never lose your groove!’

Viola Smith turns 101 this month. As the oldest member of Local 802, she has an important lesson to teach all of us: never lose your groove!

We have a living legend in our ranks. At 100 years old, Viola Smith – who was one of the first professional female drummers and was called the female Gene Krupa – is probably the oldest active member of Local 802. (In fact, she turns 101 this month, on Nov. 29.) She first joined Local 802 in 1942.

She was born Viola Schmitz in Mount Calvary, Wisconsin, where her father…

It Is What It Is


~~December 11, 2016~~ 


Never in my life did I think that the Russians would be so close to America.

Keep in mind, I grew up during the Cuban missile crisis!

This has blown my mind!



~Russia intervened to help Trump win election~

U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help President-elect Donald Trump win the White House, and not just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, a senior U.S. official said on Friday, December 9.

Morning Bloggers!

It’s been a stressful year, survived – again! I received my results for my first TMA for my MA .  I’m currently going through my options and rights as a student with the institution I am studying with. I can’t really go into  all the details it at this point.  I have received an unofficial  apology and have been advised to take it further.

I will say: I won’t be bullied by anybody.


The themes I write about are close to my heart. I will fight for an  official apology , I’m not so sure about asking for it to be remarked-although other people who have read my work and, understand stage and theater  and the issues I raise say I should demand a remark.

The Beat

Above all, let’s dance

Sheldon Kleeman


You can’t stop the feelin

People will draw you out

There’s no accounting for……

Sometimes there aren’t reasons

Sometimes there aren’t excuses

Other times you gotta put your foot Down

Your the one who flew over the cuckoo’s nest

Emotions are for………

Feelings were for…..

You can’t stop the motion

So why not step into it and dance

Forget about who you are

What it’s suppose to mean

Leave all that trash on the outside

In here it’s really real

In here it’s all about the dance


Tonite I’m forgetting about what my body is doing

I’m doing everything they are telling me to do

It’s enough………….

There are a few people who I want to acknowledge

Sepultura13.me her site is Random Rumblings; Myriad Musings

Then there’s robertmgoldstein.com

And last but not least daisyinthewillows.wordpress.com

They all nominated me for awards

My thumbs have been up……..

You guys won’t let…
