Steve Azar Explains A Soldiers Song And Donates Proceeds To Wounded Warriors [VIDEO]

Steve Azar has just released, "Soldier Song" and has dedicated it to all the soldiers serving and will be giving a portion of the song's profits to a very special cause the "Wounded Warriors Project." This July 4th, it seems as if there are a lot of singers and song-writers that are either writing songs for our troops or are dedicating songs or the entire albums to military enlisted. Just a few days ago I reported about the Gary Morris song "Faith and Freedom" and how he was dedicating it to everyone that is or has ever served.

I sure love it when our family comes together to celebrate whatever occasion may be at hand. Good food, lots of love, plenty of laughter and we can guarantee the celebration will move into the silly department in short order. Memorial Day was a great time to be had by all. I spent it with many of my relatives some of whom have served in our great Nations awesome Military and some that are still serving. While in due respect and at their request I won't post their pictures, I will share a couple of silliness pictures (of other family members) that had us all chuckling.

My Memorial Weekend Activities [GALLERY]

With all that is going on all weekend long I had a real dilemma. What to do this weekend? I've been invited to participate in several activities like, barbecue at the lake with friends, doing the "Movie Hopping" with a couple of my kids, camping at the state park with some of my scouting friends or back yard barbecuing with the in-laws. All of the a fore mentioned are great to be doing but most require "time and planning" the two things I can not do, mainly because I'm working on location broadcasting live at the car lots. See, this is the time of year when the car dealers shell out their best deals to clear-out inventory for the up-coming next years models.Here is what I decided to do on such a short leash. Inspecting the bottom of a local pool.

Brain Freeze Explained [VIDEOS]

I just experienced my first brain freeze as an adult, and I cannot say it was a pleasant experience. I had my very first ever, cherry-limeade slush. While I was broadcasting live on location at one of the local car lots, the new car sales-manager ordered a cherry-limeade slush for everyone on the lot. I was gracefully declining when he, the sales manager said "drink it don't let it go to waste, besides it's hot out here you need to cool off." That is when a long lost childhood memory returned, "the brain-freeze." After surviving my painful recovery I thought to myself, "what causes these and how do I make them go away?"
