Good News

So what is your go-to, feel-good song on your iPhone or MP3 player right now? I thought I’d share a few of my top songs on my “CCM” list in the next few weeks.

My #1 foot-stomping, praise song is one by Mandisa, a singer that rose to prominence thanks to Season 5 of American Idol (Jan-May 2006). While she did not win the competition, she made it into the top ten, launching her career as a Gospel and Christian contemporary artist.

Here is the story behind my favorite song, “Good News.”

Now, here is that song. If my guess is right, your foot will be tapping, if not stomping on the floor! Enjoy.

What is YOUR #1 go-to song? Leave me a comment below during the open comment period.

East vs. West USA

In the vast majority of cases, when it heats up in the eastern United States, it cools off in the western United States. Note the 10-day temperature forecast for the first ten days of August in Cleveland:

I selected an arbitrary city in the western United States (in this case, Spokane, WA) and did a comparison:

The atmosphere is a giant balancing act between heat and cold. More often than not, this balancing act can be seen within the 3,000 east-to-west miles in the United States.

Strawberry Letter #23

Those of you familiar with the Brothers’ Johnson 1977 pop hit, “Strawberry Letter #23” may have always wondered, like me, why the lyrics include “Strawberry Letter #22.” Until recently, I could only theorize.

As a collector of Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 radio programs, the mystery was solved in a program that filled the only hole I had in my 1977 collection, from the weekend of September 24, 1977. Here it is from Casey Kasem’s own lips!

Cold To Warm Flip

Until today’s (Friday’s) cool down on the chilly side of an active stationary front, there is a distinct flip from a cool-to-cold flow to the warm pattern that arrived on May 1st.

The stationary boundary will keep us periodically wet over the next 5-8 days. Note how much above average the rainfall will be across Ohio.
