Monday power anthem

This song is dedicated to anyone who's still riding high on the excitement of last weekend's Lady Antebellum concert.

If the Columbus Civic Center concert didn't sell out, it apparently was pretty close to being full, according to many of my friends who attended the show.

The news recently ignited a rather spirited discussion in one of our meetings, and I'd like your input.

Is there a non-country act that could deliver a sold-out show at the Columbus Civic Center? Of course, acts like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga come to mind.

Now, is there a non-country act that the Civic Center could realistically book...and expect a sold-out show in return?

Breakfast in bed

Maybe you heard about the 289 people who recently tried to break a Guinness World Record for the World's Biggest Breakfast in Bed.

In the dating world, breakfast in bed is often associated with more intimate settings.

For many women, it's the ultimate fantasy...assuming all items are cooked according to proper health standards.

In reality, breakfast in bed is often less appealing. Make no mistake: It's an incredibly romantic gesture. But there are crumbs involved. And a tremendous potential for spilled coffee. And the insecurity of morning body odor.

Those concerns aside, I wouldn't mind if someone woke me up with fresh coffee and a donut tomorrow morning. Hint, hint.

If you're a fan of breakfast in bed, check out this collection of recipes courtesy of the LA Times. The article was written for Mother's Day, but I think the ideas have year-round appeal.

And now, a dance break

I know the Monday power anthem is still days away, but let's take a quick dance break. This YouTube video was apparently posted four years ago. I discovered it last night. Guess I'm not that hip after all.

Anyway, I love this song!

Plus, it gives me a chance to say that if you're attending Friday’s Latin dance night at VFW Post 665 in Columbus, some information has changed since our last article. Cover is now $5 for men, $2.50 for women and the 21-and-older event goes until 1 a.m. Dance lessons are 8-9 p.m., main activities start at 9 p.m. VFW Post 665 is at 1824 Victory Drive. 706-687-6656.
