Random Shots: Homewood High plays Broadway

I hope all of you enjoyed the holiday. This is one of the sites that Betsy and I were able to see on Thursday…


Soaking rain in midtown Manhattan did not keep the Homewood High School Marching Band from enjoying their performance in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. While this is not the best shot in the world, it does show the band as they pass through Columbus Circle on November 23, 2006 as some of the New York City Police Department stand guard.

I hope to have some more images from the parade up this evening. Check back for links to the photoset.

Enjoy the day,


Welcome to Goodburger…

I’ve learned something in the last few days: it is extremely difficult to get back into the swing of things when you all but shut yourself off from the rest of the world for several days. At this rate, I’ll finally catch up just after halftime of the Iron Bowl.

Luckily I was crazy enough to take pictures during my stay in New York last week after dealing with the main reason for the trip. A few of those may make their way onto the site in the coming days. First on this New York edition of Random Shots…welcome-to-goodburger.jpg

Those readers who were actually fans of Keenan & Kel (yeah, you know who you are… who loves orange soda?) remember the “Goodburger” skits. These skits led to a movie by the same name, making their legions of fans extremely happy. So it was bound to happen sooner or later; someone had to open a restaurant playing off of it. There are two locations in the Big Apple.

If I’d stopped, I would have loved to hear someone in there say “Welcome to Goodburger, home of the Goodburger. May I help you?” I’d also hope that the service was better than what it was during the skits 🙂

If you get a chance, I’d appreciate some help tomorrow out in Ensley. If not, enjoy the game.

And the weekend.
