All Valley Tournament is Coming!

Written by
In December, my house will continue to be a dojo... My son goes thru spells of American Ninja Warrior, Bruce Lee Movies and Cobra Kai. Basically he watches about 2 seconds of the show and then starts spin-kicking the air and everything around the room. It is fun... Well sometimes! So in December looks like the McKee Dojo is back.... in the All Valley Karate Tournament.  I can't wait!!!!

As you know jenY1073 is Cleveland's Modern Alternative... Judging by some of the calls for the 4 o'clock binge, a trip down memory lane is justified. This one sounds like Anthony Kiedis is rambling and rhyming.  The thought behind the song is the more you give, the more you get...  so in turn give it away now...  like all of it!   The Chili Peppers are worldly.  The meaning of the song came from Germany where a singer gave Kiedis a jacket he was fond of... The music video was from a French Artist... and is a very memorable one artistically.…

As you know jenY1073 is Cleveland's Modern Alternative... Judging by some of the calls for the 4 o'clock binge, there is a need to take a trip down memory lane. This one became an anthem for girl power although the artist didn't really mean it to be that, at all! She was in a band full of guys, all her friends were dudes...

Gwen and Bush lead…

Smackdown

Written by
WWE hits Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse tonight in Cleveland.  I am a pretty big wrasslin' fan.  My son is 9 and he will be checking out his first event tonight.  I am going to surprise him.  I think, I am looking forward to his reaction more than the show itself... but should be a great time!
