Roger Torre Baiting Turkeys For Thanksgiving

Brilliant!

Who needs some store bought steroid laden Turkey when you can bait ‘em in your back yard?  Just sprinkle a little seed around and when they least suspect it on Thanksgiving Eve pop a cap in their ass!


Roger Torre submits-

Hi Joey,

I spread a little bird seed around the bird feeder for the chipmunks and squirrels and now turkeys…   Put your Thanksgiving order for your fresh bird:

Marina Evans releases her new EP ~ The Tuscan Sessions

Check the songs out here.  Read what Marina has to say, below:

Hello from  Nashville!

The Tuscan Sessions are finally done – and I am SO excited to share them with you! Written and recorded this past spring in Florence, Italy, this record brings a distinctly European feel to folk Americana. Special thanks to producer and one-man-band Bernardo Baglioni, without whom this record would never have been possible. Click here to have a listen, tap yer foot, and sing along.

Meanwhile, the tour rolls on! Tonight, Berna and I will be featured at a songwriters in the round session in Nashville – quite an honor! So much talent in this city. And the honky tonks are WILD. Also – I’ve added two more dates to our itinerary: Dallas (11/11) and Socorro, NM (11/13). More soon!

Onwards,
Marina

You Gotta See This 360 Degree Photo of The Inside Of The Space Shuttle Discovery’s Flight Deck During Decommissioning in the Orbiter Processing Facility

Click the photo for the panning 360 degree view of the entire cabin.  I’ve never seen so many knows, controls and levers in one confined space in my life.  To say you would need to be a genius to know what each one does may be the understatement of the century.
