Hello gang. As many of you know, on Friday, March 23rd, Mother Nature went berserk and we in the Blue Ridge region got to experience all of Winter in a single 24 hour span. What a crock of $#!* that was…No electricity for days, trapped at your house, food going bad, no fan to sleep by…well, that was my story at least…some of you lucky @sses had generators, but it was still an ordeal, the likes of which many of us had not experienced in quite some time.

On April 21st and 22nd, Bland County High School in Rocky Gap Virginia will be hosting a double elimination 14 team basketball tournament to raise money for Relay For Life. Continue reading “Bland County’s ‘Relay for Life’ Basketball Tournament”
No sarcasm or humor here today, my friends. Just wanted to say a bit about a great scientific mind that will be truly missed by the universe. Continue reading “A Farewell To One of The Most Amazing People in The Galaxy, Mr. Stephen Hawking”
