Divided Political Parties Means A Divided Country

As I got older I started listening to country music. It was a natural transition from the music of the 50’s and 60’s where the songs told a story and you could actually hear the words. Tammy Wynette had a song called D-I-V-0-R-C-E. The story was that she and her husband were going through a… Continue reading D-I-V-O-R-C-E
