We all should remember that Memorial Day is set aside to honor the soldiers who never came home. For this article, I decided to share my personal journey to keep my Uncle George’s memory alive.

I always wondered if his name is inscribed on a WWII monument in the United States. Over the next seventeen years, circumstanc ..read more

Throughout my years in the line dance world, I have been blessed to meet some fantastic people.

Recently, I attended the wedding of a couple who I have mentioned in previous articles, Jake and Jordan. Coincidentally, another attendee was a lady, Sachiko, whom I’ve known for several years from her taking my line dance classes at a few different locations.
