Blondie in Roanoke

I was surprised last year when Joan Jett performed at Roanoke's amphitheater, but I never thought I'd see the day when Blondie would grace us! It was a phenomenal performance...for a full review of the show, check out Tad Dickens' from the Roanoke Times piece.

Below are a couple of pics from the free seats up on the hill...and some even shot through the legs of this guy...

Blondie seemed to really like Roanoke, and we really love them too. Maybe the band had such a great time in our city that they'll tell Patti Smith to come on down! Dreaming is free...

The National D-Day Memorial - A Pictorial

On Sunday my daughter, her boyfriend, and I made the trip to Bedford to visit the National D-Day Memorial. This was the first time for me, and will become part of the "local tour" sites I suggest to out-of-town visitors. Although a little chilly and the blossoms and flowers not yet in full bloom, it was a perfect day to appreciate the beauty of the region, the history of the memorial, and learn more than I knew before about D-Day. I'll leave the history behind each of the shots below to your tour guide, who I recommend you follow when you visit. If you explore yourself you're bound to miss out on the "aha" moments...

"The National D-Day Memorial Foundation is a nonprofit educational foundation warranted by Congress to establish in Bedford, Virginia, and maintain for the nation, a memorial to the valor, fidelity, and sacrifice of the Allied forces that took part in the landing at Normandy, France on 6 June 1944....The Memorial does not receive federal or state funding and relies on donations to operate. By supporting the Foundation in telling the D-Day story today you ensure its retelling tomorrow."
