I started the Coach4aday blog in 2014 and have done daily posts on one topic for each year. In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and in 2017 it was “Colleges and Universities”.
The one consistent piece of feedback I have received with this blog is the 2015 series on “A Friend of a Friend”. Readers and blog followers said please bring it back. The stats also back that up with the number of views each of those posts received.
So in 2018 two things will happen with the Coach4aday blog; One I plan to collaborate with a friend named John Rancke and revisit some of those 2015 “A Friend of a Friend” posts and do some new ones with a slightly different twist. I write the posts on odd numbered days each month and John handles the even numbered days.
In addition John and I will write about things we both are interested which will include basketball, food, people, music, our granddaughters, and great stories.

My musical genre of a choice are the Blues.
My transformation occurred in the late 1960’s when I came across a song called “Room to Move” by John Mayall. The harmonica, the saxophone, slide guitar, piano, lyrics, and Hammond organ can all capture me with a blues song.
When I got to college the Allman Brothers sealed the deal by covering a number of previous released blues songs including Blind Willie McTell “Statesboro Blues”, Sonny Boy Williamson and Elmore James “One Way Out”, Muddy Waters “Trouble No More”, and T-Bone Walker “Stormy Monday”.
I wore out the album by the Allman Brothers titled Live at Fillmore East.
The overwhelming of my playlists on Spotify are composed of Blues Artists. I absolutely cannot get enough of Howling Wolf-John Lee Hooker-Muddy Waters-Junior Wells and Etta James.
Last week I came across a great piece on Blues Music and the Rolling Stones by Victoria Shaffer. I recommend you read it the link is below.
