Love Is In The Air
From the Canadian Trucker's peaceful protest to a Valentine's performance of Peter Noone's Herman's Hermits musical flashback of '60's love songs, there is lots of love in the winter air. It was absolutely refreshing and electrifying to take a break from our current world affairs to remember the fun, optimism, and uplifting romanticism of that 1960's British Music Invasion brought to America.
Interesting fact: There were twelve British Invasion groups and two solo artists, who were the originals in that revolutionary music invasion, and Herman's Hermits was one of those earliest twelve groups. And, as was typical of much of that music, its features were upbeat and romantic in nature.
So, it is a good reminder of the lofty goals for which we fight these days. Restoring the optimism of freedom and human love across the globe is the most important endeavor of our times!
What's Up With Trudeau?
Canadians are requesting a seat at Trudeau's table to discuss their concerns but he continues to threaten and impugn them. Then, Biden announced he was beginning WWIII Wednesday, February 16, 2022?
What's up with that, too? Even if true, since when does the Military announce strategic war maneuvers ahead of time?
And, in a strange twist of events, Putin is on the side of freedom, as he defends his nation from NATO's announced intentions to admit Ukraine to its organization and begin a war with Russia. Huh? Rumors are that Putin troops have begun movement into Ukraine to remove the bad actors who are threatening the Russian border. These are definitely uncertain and turbulent times in which we live.
People and Music
But I love people and music! So what better way is there to bring hope, healing, and happiness to our troubled world than uniting ourselves around purpose and brotherly love? And, we can always lift our spirits by joining a sing-along of happy tunes whenever we get the chance! I particularly enjoyed the peaceful trucker cheerfulness as they sang, danced, and memorialized their time-honored freedoms.

The Spirit of the Season
In the spirit of this delightful Valentine's season of love, hope, & healing please take the opportunity to download Heal Your Broken Heart, which is the song of the month at the music site. Scroll all the way down the home page to the bottom.
I think there is just too much enthusiasm and anticipation going on right now to not jump on this winter-season-of-festivities bandwagon!
The Entertaining Herman's Hermits
And, if you ever get the chance to see Peter Noone's Herman's Hermits, you won't want to miss out on the most entertaining event in a long time! After all, love of God, Country, family, friends, & freedom are always worth defending, singing, and celebrating.
2 "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. 3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation."
4 "And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. 5 Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth."
