Have you noticed those Cialis commercials and they show the couples in tubs in the oddest of places? Looking out over the ocean or in a field of flowing grass.
Nevermind that they are in separate tubs on a romantic getaway???
I don't know who comes up with this stuff, but I would love to hear of anyone who has sat in a bathtub, in the middle of the day, in the middle of a field just soakin' in the sun!

So with all the health care bill debate/ wife sent me a link to the house bill yesterday so I could read it for myself and become more informed. Really? Over 1,000 pages.

I think that's the biggest one really knows what's in this thing. Put it on a couple of pages...dumb it down for all of us into plain English so we can understand it. Insanity!

On a lighter note...very cool video on King TV of Keith Urban and Jennifer Nettles singing "You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma" this past Friday in Tulsa.

Check it out...

The 43rd Annual CMA Awards is coming up November 11th in Nashville...and we want you to go with us. James Ayers and Village Tours & Travel have teamed up for a great bus trip to the CMAs and a great price.

For more's the link

You'll be hearing more about it in the coming days. I went to my first CMA Award Show two years ago and had a great time. My seat was at the very top of the arena...and during commercials you were allowed to go to the bathroom...but if you didn't make it back before the commercial break had to wait until the next one. I thought this was odd in the upper level seats because trust me, there was no way we were getting on television in those seats! Still a great, great time. I was there when Jamey Johnson thanked his ex-wife when he won his CMA for "Give It Away".

Have a good day.

It's been a long run but Kix and Ronnie are calling it quits. They've had a great run and will come out with a greatest hits CD later in the year...and do a farewell tour in 2010...let's hope it makes a final stop in OKC.

Will they both embark on solo careers? It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

George Strait's new CD in stores today "Twang"...really good. Join Kaysee tonight at the Wal-Mart in Moore off of I-35 to get your CD and register for an autographed boxed set.

Have a good day.

George Strait's new CD "Twang" hits record stores tomorrow. Love the 1st single "Living for the Night" and George rarely dissapoints. Kaysee will be at the Wal-Mart in Moore on I-35 tomorrow starting at 5pm...come by and get your copy and take a whack at the pinata...if you bust it open and get the gold coin you could win an autographed George Strait Boxed Set.

10 days and counting until the New Face Showcase...

Been away for a few days...and what a great day to come back...Friday...that means the weekend is here!

Went away with the family for a few days to Dallas and then away with my wife for our 20th.

A couple of cool places to stay if you ever have the need...

Renaissance Worthington in Fort Worth is a great hotel and right in the heart of Sundance Square...and Shiloh Morning Inn in Ardmore is one of the neatest bed and breakfasts I've ever stayed in...6th time and it never dissapoints.

Saw some movies too...Ugly Truth is a chick-flick and Funny People good at times but a bit slow. Rented perhaps the most depressing movie of all time...Seven Pounds.

It's good to be back!
