It’s time to put our political differences aside and enjoy the musings
of THE CAPITOL STEPS – the only group in America that attempts to be
funnier than Congress! No elected official, including the current
resident of the White House, or those who may aspire to it, is off
limits. These former congressional and senate staffers satirize today’s
political headlines, and political headline makers, with humorous song
and dance. Always fresh and crisp – no two performances by THE CAPITOL
STEPS are alike.
We talked about this in the last blog-and promised to mention it again-one of our favs in the area!
918-acre farm is a lesson of history, a sermon on the wonders of God’s nature

of Mrs. Lee, for her God, her country and her fellowman, to be able to add to
the beauty of nature for all to enjoy as much as she
The garden opens, depending on Mother Nature, around the middle of February
and remains open through March or until the daffodils are no
longer in bloom. The garden’s ability to open depends upon two things:
it is closed when the roads are wet.
The garden’s future ability to
remain open depends upon the number of people who visit and register their

Lee loved the land that her husband purchased so much that she bought
adjoining land until the ranch amassed over 1,000 acres. She took
raw land and transformed it into a budding paradise; converting the
pits into a 5-acre lake and a 3-acre pond. Both of these were stocked

After a four year
absence, one time detective Nick Charles (William Powell) returns to New
York with his new wife Nora (Myrna Loy) and their dog, Asta. Nick
re-connects with many of his old cronies, several of whom are eccentric
characters, to say the least. He’s also approached by Dorothy Wynant
whose inventor father Clyde Wynant is suspected of murdering her
step-mother. Wynant’s father had left on a planned trip some months
before and she has had no contact with him. Nick isn’t all that keen on
resuming his former profession but egged-on by wife Nora, who thinks
this all very exciting, he agrees to help out. He solves the case,
announcing the identity of the killer at a dinner party for all of the

Andie Kay Joyner and Heather Stalling of “Blacktop Gypsy”.
When they met in the
early 1990’s, both were already accomplished musician/vocalists.
Stalling was an award winning fiddler, coming off a two-year run as a
support player in Branson, MO. Joyner was still a teenager, but had sung
in front of thousands of people at countless performances. Each had
grown up in musical families that exposed them to bluegrass, folk, and
traditional country music. For the next decade, the girls further
groomed themselves for their own band by separately backing Texas
artists, such as Mark David Manders, Max Stalling, Johnny Lee, Tommy
Alverson, Bob Schneider, and others. The girls took a Tuesday night
residency at the legendary Dallas honky-tonk, Adair’s Saloon for almost a
year. Stalling and Joyner even co-produced their debut CD,
blacktopGYPSY, with Austin resident Adam Odor at famed Cedar Creek
Studios. The album is a montage of styles representing the songwriters’
varied influences and phases of musical interest. The traditional
country material one might expect of a fiddler and country vocalist is
certainly there. blacktopGYPSY released their second CD “Whirlwind” in
September 2011 produced by the legendary Lloyd Maines
They decide to set up shop in an old firehouse and become Ghostbusters,
trapping pesky ghosts, spirits, haunts, and poltergeists for money. They

another dimension, one which will release untold evil upon the city. Who
