If today is your birthday or anniversary, I hope you have a happy one and that the next years are incredible.

It’s March 28th.  Today is the 87th day of the year and there are 278 days left in 2019.

On this day back in 1920, there was a major Palm Sunday tornado outbreak in the Great Lakes and the Deep South;  in 1979, the Three Mile Island nuclear plant near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania partially melted down; and in 2005, an earthquake rocked Indonesia with a magnitude of 8.7.

But, let’s get back to birthdays and celebrations!

64 years ago today, one of my idols, Reba McEntire, was born in Kiowa, Oklahoma.

While she’s been very busy over the past years, she hasn’t had a new country album out since early 2015 and it was pretty much ignored by country radio!

That changes soon!

Her new album, “Stronger Than The Truth”, comes out on April 5th, and it features her new single, “Freedom”, which is starting to get country airplay.

“Freedom” is being called “euphoric” and a “fist-pumping anthem”!

Take a listen!

Lady Gaga is also celebrating her birthday today, number 33!

Later that year, she’d give birth to a baby boy six weeks premature.  Yes, it’s yours truly.

Happy birthday Reba and Lady Gaga, and Mom, happy anniversary.

A Special Day for Three Lovely Ladies

It’s March 28th.  Today is the 87th day of the year and there are 278 days left in 2015.

It’s going to be a great day for celebrations today in the Quad Cities, but on this day back in 1920, there was a major Palm Sunday tornado outbreak in the Great Lakes and the Deep South;  in 1979, the Three Mile Island nuclear plant near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania partially melted down; and in 2005, an earthquake rocked Indonesia with a magnitude of 8.7.  This was the fourth strongest quake since 1965.

But, let’s get back to birthdays and celebrations.

60 years ago today, my idol, Reba McEntire, was born in Kiowa, Oklahoma.

Reba Love Somebody

While she has been very busy over the past years, she hasn’t had a new album out since November 2010.

That changes soon!  Her new album, “Love Somebody”, comes out on April 14th, and it features her new single, “Going Out Like That”, which is getting some country music airplay.

“Rolling Stone” says this of the new song, “The country music icon is known as much for her empowering songs as her breakup numbers, and her latest single combines both.”

And, back in 1964, 51 years ago today, my parents married.
