Patsy Cline - Arthur Godfrey TV Show (1957)

In 1957 (62 years ago) Jan. 21 Patsy Cline debuted with  Arthur Godfrey's  talent  show.
I was setting in a club bar having a beer after the day was done when a young couple came in. The male ordered a beer and the girl ordered a coke, it was plane to see the girl was under 21. She strolled back to the back where the juke box was located. She stood infront of it for quite a while, she then retured to the bar and said to the barmaid,"What kind of a bar is this? there is no Patsy Cline songs on that juke box". This incident has always stuck in my mine because this cute little girl was not even 21 years old and Patsy Cline had died some 20+ years before she was born. This just shows that Patsy Cline's music will live forever.

Right before a blizzard / winter storm

If you do nothing else:
  • Listen to local area radio, NOAA radio or TV stations for the latest information and updates.
  • Check emergency kit and replenish any items missing or in short supply, especially medications and medical supplies. Keep it nearby.
  • Be sure you have ample heating fuel.
  • If you have alternative heating sources, such as fireplaces, wood- or coal-burning stoves, or space heaters, be sure they are clean and in working order.
