If You're in Nashville, Please Consider This Great Line-up for Feb. 28

From Billboard Magazine, this article about a benefit from my neighbor, Todd Cerny:


When songwriter Todd Cerney performed at Puckett’s Downtown in Nashville
on Feb. 11, he was overcome with pain and cut the appearance short, telling the
crowd it was likely his last live performance ever. Cerney, best-known for writing 
Restless Heart’s “I’ll Still Be Loving You” and Steve Holy’s “Good Morning Beautiful,” 
suffered a seizure Nov. 7 and was subsequently diagnosed with stage IV melanoma.

Restless Heart and Holy are just two of a long list of performers planning a
Feb. 28 benefit for Cerney at Nashville’s Red Rooster Bar & Music Hall. Ty Hern -
don, Bo Bice, Jeff Bates and Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits are on tap, along
with songwriters Wood Newton (“Bobbie Sue”), Rivers Rutherford (“When I
Get Where I’m Going”), Thom Shepherd (“Redneck Yacht Club”), Lisa Carver
(“Everyday America”), Richard Fagan (“Be My Baby Tonight”) and Casey Kelly
(“The Cowboy Rides Away”), among others.

The event will also mark a reunion of the Piggys, a rock band that had a sig-
nificant following on Nashville’s club circuit in the 1980s. The group hasn’t per-
formed in 25 years.

Admission for the 6:30 p.m. show at the Red Rooster, located at 1530 Demon-
breun St., is $15. Donations are also being accepted through the Friends of Todd
Cerney account at Regions Bank, 1600 Division St., Nashville, TN 37212. For
more information, contact Cerney’s wife, Kip Kirby, here.

Periscoping a Fall Walk across Nashville's Pedestrian Bridge

On my final day of Fall Break, which I spent mostly knocking out home-focused honey-do items (though I did get to Marrowbone Lake for one morning of fishing), I decided to take a walk over the John L. Seigenthaler Memorial Bridge. I had never done it before! My goal was to take a 360 panorama for my little side project, Nashville360VR, which has been suffering lately from my dedication to my new job at Warner Enhanced Elementary School. I did that, and on a whim I Periscoped it. Here's the video of that which I saved locally. Folks popped in and out--I don't think I had more than 20 or so concurrent viewers, but all in all I received 251 peeks over the 13 or so minutes or so of the 'cast. You won't see chat or comments (or hearts :), but you can view the video. Here:

Thanks to 'scopers for dropping in. And thanks to the powers-that-be for such a gorgeous Friday afternoon!

Here are a couple normal "pano" shots I took on my iPhone:

That is all. Oh...

THE BEST ISTE EVER: Day 4 Reflections

I'll get a start on it. Day 4 was the bomb. Here's the "moneyshot" again  to prove it:

Tuesday morning I actually slept in until 7:30, had a good workout, and dressed smartly for my photo shoot at 11:20. I'd been asked by ISTE to be a poser and you know me, I couldn't resist. But that did mean I was in slacks and had to haul my blue blazer around all day. That's okay though, I look forward to recognizing myself in some upcoming issue of Learning and Leading with Technology. If you check out last month's issue you'll see Andy Wheelock's personable self gracing the inside front cover--like that. You should also catch Andy's article from the May L&LT:

I actually had a sit  down breakfast at the Hilton's Riverwalk restaurant, and the breakfast wrap was good but I never had a coffee refill and no one actually checked in with me at any time. I had to flag down a …

The Dreamers Exhibit in Second Life

Wow. I had a fantastic hour early this morning while my lovely was sleeping and the canine brutes were resting in front of the fireplace. Lured by the login page's description, I tp'd over to the site, which promised a celebration of peace in the face of violence. 
The description of the project begins:
Because violence will not take away our ability to dream!
When we were just beginning to create this project, the events of Charlottesville happened. Our hearts stopped. We cannot do this - we thought - we must alert to the political situation we live in! The danger of tyranny. The danger of environmental disaster. The danger of xenophobia, sexism, homophobia. The danger of hate! But then we stopped.From within us came this beach, this horizon. This sea, this lake, these white clouds grew. No! We will not give up on The Dreamers. We will not give up on beauty. They will not steal the beauty of the world. They will not steal tenderness. They will not steal the life we have left.A…
