I have lived in Knoxville my entire life. I very vaguely remember going to the World's Fair in 1982. I was 3. Since then I mainly have memories of the World's Fair Park for the 4th of July. There was a shallow cement pond that always seemed to have ducks and someone with a remote control boat. Aside from that, not much was there. Wasn't really a place that I ever thought to bring my kids. That was until recently. Last weekend the Knox County Public Libraries launched their summer reading program. This was the first time that I attended and I will surely not miss it again. It was pretty cool to hear Skippy John Jones read by the author, Judy Schachner. But I digress. I want to highlight the updated World's Fair Park so that other parents don't miss out, like I have. I do realize that the...

Ford Motor Company has a director of it, NAR has hired one, Comcast and Knology both use it to get better. In fact, Frank the Comcast guy helped me get my cable and cable internet bill lowered 40 bucks a month; I like Frank; I even like Comcast better now. ;-) So what the heck is "Social Media"? Wikepedia says it is: "umbrella term that defines the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and the construction of words" Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, Magnolia, Digg, and literally hundreds of others websites use and promote it but exactly what the heck is it? Here's a little YouTube video that has one of the best explainations of social media I've seen. These very creative folk s get credit for this marvelous, easy to understand video.

This past Thursday evening was the second annual "Bloggers Night" at the Knoxville, Tennessee Symphony Orchestra (KSO). The Symphony invited up to 50 area bloggers and a companion to attend a free Symphony concert and attend a reception afterward. As a bonus the KSO performs most of their concerts in the restored and refurbished Tennessee Theatre in downtown Knoxville. PLUS there's free parking for theatre goers just a block away at the State St. garage! Sounded like an offer too good to pass up so I went. The nights fare was Mozart & Mendelssohn with a little Bach thrown in for good measure. There was a pre-concert chat before the performance with Maestro Lucas Richman who conducts the Orchestra and he was joined by featured pianist Navah Perlman. Maestro Richman was pretty funny when ...

Last night (Friday, Dec. 5) was Knoxville' annual Christmas Parade. Even though it was around 30 degrees the Saturday news said they estimated the crowds at 35,000.  I think that was a great turnout for such a cold night but.....Santa Claus was there and it is Christmas. There were lots of kids of all ages. We got there about 45 minutes early and were able to get a good spot right on the curb. That turned out to be a good move because by the time the parade started people were lined up 5 to 6 deep all along Gay Street. Knoxville city and Knox County motorcycle officers are set to lead the parade.

Knoxville as a city is heavily influenced by it proximity to the Great Smokey Mountains with its rich Appalachian culture. Knoxville, because it is home to the University of Tennessee, is also heavily influenced by the diverse intellectual and artistic curiosity that characterizes any major university. The convergence of these influences have given rise to a number of distinctively diverse hot spots around town. One of the most distinctive of these is the World Grotto! World Grotto is located at 16 Market Square in Knoxville (click HERE for a map). They are open: Tueday thru Wednesday 5:00 PM until 1:00 AM, Thursday thru Friday 5:00 PM until 3:00 AM, Saturday 8:00 PM thru 3:00 AM, and Sunday varies. This unique Knoxville hot spot is characterized by an art gallery and marketplace on the...

With all the music history, from Memphis on the western border, Nashville in the north central part, and the Appalachian Mountains forming the eastern border of the state of Tennessee, Knoxville is fortunate to have "The Official State Theatre of Tennessee." The Tennessee Theatre opened October 1, 1928 with almost 2,000 seats. From the Czechoslovakian crystals in the French-style chandeliers to the overall Spanish-Moorish style, the Chicago architects, Graven & Mayger, incorporated a hodgepodge of design elements from all parts of the world. The overall effect is visually stunning and provides an intimate setting in which to see some of the most acclaimed performers from around the world. The theatre underwent a complete renovation lasting from June 2003 until its grand reopening on Jan...
