Good Morning and Merry Christmas to all
I just wanted to share my Merry Christmas greetings from the exercise room of the hotel room this Christmas Morning with my
FAMILY. THANKS to all you I am blessed with not only my immediate Family, but also my extended Family but with S3productions now my Facebook Family of friends, my co-workers and last but certainly not least all of my veterans friends, (and I all most openly include all of you active duty, reserve, deployed, US Military forces who may or may not be home today.
As most of you know I am Calligraphy challenged, Handwriting Handicapped, and Curvisly cursed so I wanted to do a Podcast to wish all of you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS today
so hug your kids, your spouse, Grandkids, or someone and enjoy the day
PS A special shout out to Bob MC Glew for the white Christmas, and Armando Sanchez who is spending Christmas getting well again (get healed my friend I need you in 2015)
Thank you to the Best western Executive Inn Round Rock Inn for letting me use the Gym this AM
Has I get ready to leave Round Rock Texas, I just share a few thoughts about the adventures I had here. We spent Christmas day with my son and his family. Having a grandson with special needs make life a bit more challenging but still does not lessen my love him.
Christmas is so much more special when children are there.
The day after Christmas My son and I took the Boys over to Austin to Harbor Freight and Fry’s to run some errands. Then I took one of my Grandsons over to Piranha records trying to find some Willie Nelson music for a future show. Normally they carrying everything but today was not one of them. Shopping with my Grandson makes me a proud Grandpa
Saturday Morning my wife went to visit some of our favorite haunts The Book Spot, Half Price Books, because both were having sales and of course we had to go
Saturday afternoon my son and took the boys out one a mini-history trip around Round Rock, First we went out to the White –Lime Mc Neil Post office because Richard had never been there
While we there a train passed by which gave Brandon a big thrill, From there we actually found the Round Rock in Rock Texas, and then onto the Round Rock Memorial Park because they have a WWII torpedo one display to honor all the Submarines lost in that war, of course this leads me to this question “Why a Torpedo in Central Texas honoring lost submarines”? Perhaps a research question for another show
We also got a picture of the Christmas Ornament at the Water Tower
Every time we come out to Texas we always have a new set of adventures highlighted by the time we get to spend Richard, Sara, Brandon and Ryan
I would be Remiss if I did not mention this but Sara made homemade Cinnamon rolls that out do anyone or any chains, or independent bakery they are the simply the best
(148) Old records, new stories
It has been a couple of months since my last show, and has we start the fall I thought I would spend a couple of minutes with you to let you know what I have been up to and what my (OUR) future might hold. I started the summer with a reading list of about 13 books and I proud to report a current to read list of 7 different books and 4 that I still have not read but I did read about 13 books
August was spent traveling to /from Texas and of course School started at the end of August.
I have been so involved with some school issues that production has slowed down. However
We did a show last night with Garth Kline and the future of high school electronics.
I have a show Thursday to launch a new Podcasting network hosted by two former students (this will be my third Launch of former student’s podcasting
I have a railroad Museum show Saturday, Future shows in the pipeline? A show with a Vintage Guitar technician, Navajo Code Talkers, TechShop CEO, and Cupcake Girls
I also received about 200 old 78 RPM records that I am trying to track down any stories, history, Value, collectors, and or Music Historians. SO if any of you out there are OLD music Aficionados or has any leads out there please let me know
HAS always the future is bright for S3productions BUT I do ask for YOUR help, ideas, thoughts, and leads
My buddy Bob Mc Glew suggested a story line that was visit a ghost town and to do a short story about what you find there. So has we were traveling to Austin Texas on December 24 we stopped in Kent Texas just to see what was there and do a share some reflections . There is not much there but I did learn some valuable lessons. (1) the batteries in my digital camera fell out and promptly disappeared, (2) we were not sure what we would find but do the research first This show is dedicated to Robert Mc Glew my S3 productions foreign reporter for giving me the idea
COMMENTS: Kent. A ranch town born to supply the needs of the long x Cattle Company. The most famous of the west Texas ranches. Owned by the Reynolds brothers, prominent west Texas ranchers. Their holding consisted of several thousand acres extending from north of us highway 10 to several miles south into the Davis mountains. REMAINS: Lots of ruins but a lot still standing. http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/tx/kent.html
The town, once called Antelope, was founded in the early 1890s.
A post office was granted in 1893 and by 1914 the population was a thriving 25 persons. The population doubled in the mid-1920s and remained at that level for 40 years. The post office was reported closed in 1960 but has since reopened.
Kent had a population of sixty-five in the late 1960s - falling to 60 by the mid-1970s where it remains today.
Today little is left to interest a tourist - but the juncture of the two roads provides a sense of place. The lone telephone at least looks comforting but its condition is unknown. The overpass of I-10 offers some relief from the scorching sun but it will be sometime before Kent becomes a destination.
A special thank you to Excutive INN Best Western Round Rock for their help

#MyRealTalkRadio Interviews Singer/Songwriter: Jessica Reedy
Jessica Reedy first came to our attention on the national TV competition BET’s Sunday Best. She attended the Season 2 Sunday Best audition in Washington DC on a whim to support a friend. She quickly found herself in the Top 20 onto the show’s main stage performing for judges Mary Mary and Bebe Winans. Reedy made it all the way to finals eventually being named runner up. Throughout that process and the subsequent loss, self-doubt crept in. While Reedy never thought she had the talent to make it, God used the totality of the experience to bring her into her call as both an artist and minister of music.
