John Berry – By Request

 
I received a request today for a John Berry song, so I chose this one.  He has/had one of the most beautiful voices.  And this song is awesome.  Unfortunately, he developed lesions in his throat and the surgery ended his career in 2004 ……. I think!
 
So this song is for my friend Giggles!
 
Here is a short Bio:
 

John was born in Aiken, South Carolina, to James and Marie Berry, and raised in the Atlanta, Georgia area. His father listened to concert pianist Van Cliburn, his mother had a strong taste for gospel, and his brother became an opera singer. John gravitated to both soul and country music and began recording his own albums at home in 1979. Two years later, John started performing solo acoustic shows in northeast Georgia, then expanded around the southeast, building a strong name and following. He eventually made six self-produced albums, with the last one selling over 10,000 copies. He was finally signed to Liberty Records/Capitol Records in 1992.

Berry has contributed to children’s charities, and lent his name to such causes as adult literacy and Cystic Fibrosis.

John has been actively recording his own albums with his new independent label, Clear Sky Records. His album Songs and Stories was released in May 2002, and has sold over 25,000 copies at shows, online, and through his Fan Club. For the 2003 holiday season, he re-released his live Christmas CD, O Holy Night Live (formerly titled Christmas Live).

 Speaking of music, we have a Country music station here that plays old and new songs.  It seems as if every time I get in my car, they are either playing a really good new song or an old one that I forgot about.  So I spent the afternoon (productively??  lol) downloading music!!   Some good ones coming up!!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Today, the temps here were 20 degrees cooler and tomorrow, another 10!!  A little more like Spring.  Another storm moving down the coast but as usual, it will stop just short of us.  Then it will move east and get all of you!!  LOL!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

 

Road trip tomorrow.  Have to drive to the FIL’s house to try to fix his Verizon DSL!  I’m thinking I will have to uninstall it and then reinstall it!!  The one at the cabin works perfectly!  Hmmmm….!  If that doesn’t work,  will insist that Verizon send someone out.  He has been on Dial-Up for years and I was hoping DSL would speed things up for him…… but so far it’s been worse!   The other problem could be….  a 6 year old computer.  I keep telling to delete his ‘Temp Files’, run his ‘Anti-Adware’ program, quit stopping the ‘Zone Alarm’ scan, but I guess that is my job!  An occasional ‘De-Frag’ might be nice too!   Oh well…   Maybe I’ll get lunch out of it!!

I’ll be here tomorrow afternoon!  Nite!

PS!!  Changed my mind…..  Yet Again!!  sorry…..  Tim Mc Graw week!!  OK??  Good!  Starting tomorrow!!

BTW!!  I have officially lost 50lbs since November!!!!  It’s the ‘No teeth, No eat diet’!!  LOL  Now, to keep it off!

    DSL performance varies pretty divergently depending upon how far the customer if from the "node".

    Well, ya ol’ tightwad – why don’t you give your FIL that laptop you’ve been tryin’ to sell? Ha!! I was thinking of switching to DSL so I could get the dish for my high def tv (they have more HD channels than our local cable) but I’ve heard such horror stories about it! I’m skeered to pull the plug on my high speed internet via cable since I’ve never had any problems with it. I don’t know how to jick with all that myself so I’m at the mercy of customer service, and that’s a frickin’ nightmare no matter WHICH company ya deal with. Ugh.
