Happy 4th of July

Gotta love Wikipedia for letting me know what the 4th of July stands for. 

Independence Day of the United States, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth in the U.S., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the British Empire. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.

Have a great week. 


New Edition in Concert

I had the chance to see New Edition in Concert at the Tobin Center in San Antonio on July 3rd. 

What a concert. It was so much fun hearing all the old songs that I grew up on. 
The band looked great. Ricky BellMichael Bivins,Bobby BrownRonnie DeVoeRalph Tresvant and Johnny Gill sang and danced all night on stage. They sang tjeir hits included “Candy Girl,” “Cool It Now” and “Mr. Telephone Man“.

Then they all sang songs from when they were Bell Biv DeVoe and solo acts of Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant.

They sang two of my favorite songs by them,  “If It Isn’t Love” and “Can You Stand The Rain.”
It was a great concert and I love the Tobin Center. Where else can 2,300 people have a great seat to watch a great band?

Side Note: I can barely remember what I had for lunch last Thursday, but I remember all the words to “Cool It Now” from 1984!
