Be a Music City Tourist! - 04/18/14

Happy Easter Weekend!  I hope you are having a great holiday.  I have family visiting from the northeast this week and have had a chance to play tour guide and tourist at the same time.  It's been fun! If you haven't taken the time to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame (most of us that live here probably haven't), take a trip downtown!  I had a blast there on Wednesday!  It's a great place to spend a few hours rolling down memory lane and learn more about this great place we call home. 
A friend once suggested that when she has family or guests that will be staying at her home for a few days, she would spend a night in the guest room before they arrive to make sure she had supplied everything her guest would need to make it as enjoyable as possible.  I always thought that is a great idea.  Take it a step further and play the role of tourist in your own town and check out all of the great things Nashville has to offer!  I bet you'll have a great time too!

"STONER" ARRESTED FOR POT

ORANGE, Va. (AP) -- It's a twist on the old saying that when dog bites man, it isn't news, but when man bites dog, it is news. A "stoner" being arrested for pot possession isn't news. But when the "stoner" is named "Stoner" -- it's worth taking note of. This "Stoner" -- 42-year-old Paul Scott Stoner -- was arrested in Virginia. And authorities in the commonwealth say he is facing drug charges after police found more than $10,000 worth of pot at his home. He's charged with growing marijuana and having a firearm while in possession of more than a pound of marijuana. Stoner is free on bond, with a hearing set for next week.

PAY IT FORWARD

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Think of it as a "pay it forward" campaign -- on caffeine. A woman in Florida went to a Starbucks drive-thru in Florida on Wednesday and on top of the iced tea she ordered, she asked to pay for the caramel macchiato for the stranger in the car behind her. The man in the car behind returned the favor to the driver behind him -- and a chain reaction started that continued for hours. The store crew kept track -- and before it was over, there were 379 customers who were treated to a Starbucks drink then paid it forward -- or backward, if you want to look at literally. The last customer in the chain declined to pay for someone else's coffee, even though a barista explained the concept to her.

HERMIT IS OUT OF THE WOODS

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) -- If you run into a guy in Maine who seems just a little out of step with the modern world, do not ask: "What, have you been living in the woods for 30 years?" The answer might be yes. Christopher Knight has spent nearly three decades in the woods, away from society. He survived the brutal winters by swiping food from homes and camps. Knight's story is being told in the current issue of GQ magazine. He says he isn't crazy about the society he's being forced to re-enter. He says the world these days is too colorful, lacks aesthetics -- and is crude.
