More rain on the way for Metro Atlanta

Metro Atlanta is under a flood watch until Monday evening.  Some areas a predicted to get as much a 4 inches of rain.  With many of the creeks and streams full from the massive downpours of a couple weeks ago, any significant rain could cause flooding and hazardous travel.

A low pressure system moving into the area carrying Gulf moisture will bring a 100% chance of rain Sunday evening.  In addition, thunderstorms are in the forecast for North Georgia for Tuesday and Wednesday.

NFL Week 4 Games to Watch on Sunday

Lions at Bears  -  Lions improving every week, they try to win again.

Titans at Jags - A must win for both teams.  A knock down drag out brawl.

Ravens at Patriots - A heavyweight fight, AFC battle.

Bucs at Redskins - Redskins have been awful and disappointing.  Pressure is on in D.C.

Jets at Saints - Drew Brees looks to air it out again.  Jets have been good so far.

Cowboys at Broncos - Denver is 3-0, but no one knows how good they are.

* Sunday Night - Chargers at Steelers - Both teams need a win badly.

Jeff Larson's "Heart of The Valley" 5 Stars +

 
It's been available for presale on Amazon for a little over a month, but now it's out and it's a CD not to be missed.  Produced by Gerry Beckley of America, and featuring tracks that include guests like Dewey Bunnell of America and Rusty Young of Poco you know this has to be good.
There is one review on Amazon so far and the review says it all:
 
"Possibly Larson's Best Yet!"  -  Gary Scharg (Boulder, CO) September 25, 2009
 
 
The music is laid back and fresh.  You can hear The Eagles/America/Poco influence in the melodies.  Beautifully arranged.  "One Lit Window" is pure Jeff Larson. 
I wholeheartedly recommend it.  It will be available for download on iTunes Oct. 6.

"I Go To Rio" by Pablo Cruise and Now The Olympics

 

What a coincidence I was humming "I Go To Rio" written by Peter Allen today, but the better version is  by Pablo Cruise.  Congrats to Rio for landing The 2016 Olympics and halting more corruption that would be heading to Chicago.  Obama and Oprah were there trying to secure the bid for The Windy City.  I guess they will say it's George W. Bush's fault for not getting the games.

The first time The Olympics will be held in South America.

Lyrics to "I Go To Rio"  The Pablo Cruise version is catchy.

I Go To Rio Lyrics

(written by: Peter Allen and Adrienne Anderson)

Oooooo...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio
De Janeiro.
My-o me-o...
I go wild and then
I have to do the samba,
And la bamba.

Now I'm not the kind of person,
With a passion or persuasion
For dancin' or romancin'.
But I give in to the rhythm,
And my feet follow the beating
Of my heart.

whoa oh ohh...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio
De Janeiro.
I'm a Salsa fella,
When my baby smiles at me,
The sun lightens up my life,
And I am free at last.
What a blast!

Whoa oh ohh...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I feel like Tarzan
Of the Jungle.
There on the hot sand,
In a bungalow
While monkies play above-a,
We'll make love-a.

Now I'm not the kind
To let vibrations,
Trigger my imagination
Easily.
No, that's just not me.
But I turn into a tiger,
Everytime I get the sight of,
What I love, love, love.

Ohhh oh ohh ohhh...

---instruments---

Wooooooo!

Ohh oh oh...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio
De Janeiro.
I'm a Salsa fella,
When my baby smiles at me
The sun lightens up my life,
And I am free at last.
What a blast!

Wooooo hooooo...

---instruments/whistles---

whoa oh oh ohh...

whoa oh ohh...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio
De Janeiro.
I'm a Salsa fella,
When my baby smiles at me
The sun lightens up my life,
And I am free at last.
What a blast!

(Rio)

When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio.
Rio,
Rio De Janeiro.

Take me back,
I put it in.
Take me where I know
I'm gon' to Rio.
Oh ohh...
