    They have cow-tipping contests there the first Saturday of the month... good times. Just make sure you get out before 11 pm or the bulls get really pissed.

    It's been over 40 years since I had anything to do with Evansville, IN, but back then there was a BBQ place that was to die for -- best I've ever eaten. Of course, us old guys tend to exaggerate things in our memories, but I've always taken food seriously.

    You might want to ask somebody there whether they know of an exceptional BBQ place.

    Just a thought. Sorry I can't give you more information, but if you've got nothing else to do, solving a mystery might be entertaining!

    Well, the recital made the entire trip worth while. My wife's step daughter has an amazingly beautiful voice!

    Well done!

    You didn't mention the recital earlier.

    I'm glad it went so well.

    Now, look for that BBQ joint! :-)

    She is a soprano and the recital was one of the requirements of her bachelor of music, music therapy degree.
    As a surprise for me, she sang Eight Epitaphs by Theodore Chandler and the River Lullaby from Prince of Egypt.
    She also sang some Handel and some Schubert.

    Any recordings of her recital that you could post?

    It would be great to hear her singing.

    We already ordered a DVD of her performance. Was a little over an hour's worth mostly with and accompanying pianist but on River Lullaby, she had a percussionist playing one of the most impressive marimbas I have ever seen.
    Anyway, she already gave me the ok to post up some once they send out the DVD.

    And yes Dan..,U of E

    So long as you have the artist's permission to post them ZL... would not want to rum afoul of the Academy of Recording Arts here.

    You guys must be so proud of her. Maybe next year we can vote for her on "The Voice". Just make sure she picks Blake!

    The only BBQ place that I remember being any good there was Smokey Mtn. It cooked on an open pit that you could see through a big glass window inside the "restaurant" They used a clear vineagar sauce. I went there with my dad when I was young. Pork sandwich, Ozark BBQ potato chips, and a Ski to drink! The place only had like 5 tables in it. I don't know if it's even still around.
