Did You Ever Have a Day When ...

Things just seem to fall together perfectly?

OK, so those days are pretty rare, but I actually had one today.

A lot of things went right.

Got an email from a local celeb, a radio personality from a morning show on one of the bigger stations in Cincinnati .... he is also a performer and he wants to come to Rezonate '08! HE contacted ME. Wow. That doesn't happen often. Not only that but since he's a radio guy he will plug the concert too. FREE advertising. I love it. And he's on at drive time when people are going to work so this is just ... awesome.

I also got another email today that Eliot Sloan of Blessid Union of Souls will be coming to Rezonate! Ever hear the song "Light in Your Eyes", or "I Believe"? I know you've heard them. If not, go over to Myspace now and give a listen. I think at least one of their albums went gold. The band is not coming, in fact, I think they may have broken up, but Eliot was the frontman and he'll be here! Cool! I'm a fan too. :)

Both of these guys know our friend Brian White, a song writer in Nashville who's latest hit "Watching You" was at #1 on the country charts for several weeks and has won all sorts of awards. He's also got a couple of Doves in his pocket. Some of you may remember him from Brian White and Justice from way back in the day. (Don't tell him I said 'way back in the day')

And then there's the doughnut tower.

That's right. A doughnut tower. Tomorrow is Logan's grad party. I think about 75 people are coming? Wow, I wasn't expecting that many but we've got the food to feed 'em so its all good. Since he is graduating from the HS and the Criminal Justice program, I'm doing a doughnut tower instead of a cake. Brian built a stand for it and I'm going to arrange 10 dozen or so doughnuts in an artistic manner (I hope) and then put a little statue of a cop on the top. I'll post pics tomorrow night but trust me - its SO cool. I wasn't sure it was going to work out, but oh yeah ... it will.

Hey Amber,

Great news all around!

Isn't this donut tower thing a little
bit close to the stereotypical cop and donut thing.

And that dove in the pocket must be
heck on Brian's dry cleaning bill.
