What Decade Had the Best Music? [POLL]

On Sunday night, I had a moment where I actually thought I was an old man. As I sat watching the Billboard Music Awards, I remember mumbling multiple old man phrases to myself.  Things like, "This music is garbage," "Does anyone really like this?" and "They're clearly lip syncing their performance."

Quickly after the Billboard Music Awards ended, I came to the conclusion that I'm not an old man, new music just really is that bad. I ended up having a heated argument with a few people about what generation had the best music. I made a case for the '60s, but I want you to tell me which decade had the best music.

Jack’s Mid Missouri Memories: The High Chair

The High Chair
On cold winter mornings I sometimes think back to when I was a small child sitting in front of an old wood cook stove. In that memory, I am sitting in the handmade wooden high chair my grandfather Wickliffe built just for me. Mom always pulled it up close to the stove where I would be warm, and she could give me some attention between stirring the gravy and flipping the eggs.

Mom’s Driving Lesson
Learning to drive the smooth-operating cars of today, with their automatic transmissions and hydraulic brakes, is a snap compared to the rough-handling ones of the days of our mothers and fathers.

It’s National Teacher’s Day: Who Was Your Favorite Teacher? [SURVEY]

Kids, today is National Teacher's Day. I think that we all appreciate teachers in general, but I thought we might get a little more specific here.

I thought I'd share some memories of teachers I've had and worked with, and you could tell me a little about yours.  I think everyone had one of those teachers when they were a kid, that one that was your favorite.  Maybe they were funny, maybe they were kind, maybe they were just whatever you needed at the time.

Jack’s Mid Missouri Memories: The Old Wolf Hunter Of Sedalia

Let’s face it, the majority of people we meet as kids do not stick in our minds that well. If they aren’t family, there has to be something unique about them to make them memorable. One of the really unique people I can still remember from my childhood was an old wolf hunter, and unique isn’t a strong enough word to describe him.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Old Cooks And Pie Safes

I owe my overweight status to the fact that I had a mother and grandmother while I was growing up who had few peers when it came to cooking, and oh how I enjoyed getting this way. This Mid-Missouri Memory always makes my mouth water.

Jack Miller Recalls a George Jones Concert in Sedalia

The news that country music legend George Jones had died at the age of 81 came to me in the form of an overheard conversation this morning. The fact that I had been listening to one of his CDs in my pickup just minutes before could not be called a coincidence since his are the ones I listen to the most.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: When Fixing Flat Tires Was a Way of Life

One of the things most of us do not miss about the days before the synthetic breed of tires came along is fixing flats. In those days of less durable tires, the rite of passage from passenger to driver included the ability to not only change a tire, but also to fix a flat. The following Mid-Missouri Memory probably won't mean much to younger drivers, but to those of us with a little grey in our hair, it will.
