The weekend is here on the east coast of Iowa, and
probably where you live too. That means it must be
time for some updates, upcoming events, a few
diversions, and more.
We’ll start with a video of a 15 year old girl
playing her guitar. If I started playing now I
could get this good by time I turned 100.
Here in Davenport our mayor has appointed a
committee to look into compensation for said mayor
and our aldermen. This committee is made up of 2
former mayors and 2 former aldermen who are
tasked with making recommendations as to how big a
raise our city leaders will get.
Also in town is the Bix Fest this weekend. Jazz
fans from around the globe journey here just for
Tonight is the Relevant Life Church Cruise Night

There’s also a lot going on at Cordova Dragway
This video begins with a short commercial but is
worth sitting through it to see the flames shooting
out of a 1919 Willy’s rat rod.
And if you have never seen a 22,000 pound semi
tractor fly for 166 feet, you will like this video.
Finally a video that has gone viral. If you didn’t
see “Letters to Dad” enjoy it now.
Now we have to get busy. Enjoy your weekend but
remember. The rumor going around that the speed
limit signs posted along the Interstate are only
suggested speeds is still a rumor.
Comments are always welcome.
