Ben Power from Austrailia

Ben and Kami

BEN POWER is from AUSTRAILIA.

Ben sets the record straight on the “gecko” that we see on TV. 

Most of Australia is populated around the edges near the coast as the center is mostly arid, desert and scrublands.

There are large cattle ranches in Australia and they are so large they manage them by helicopters instead of horses like United States.

There are different accents in Australia between the north and the south.

Kangaroos are everywhere like deer here in United states. Kangaroos are good eating.

Australia has Christmas in the middle of summer as December is summer in Australia.

Ben also tells about Singapore.

Remember when you say good bye to an Australian you say “hooroo”.

Teea Goans

TEEA GOANS – Country Music Star of  Grand Old Opry – Larry’s Country Diner – Country Family Reunion – RFD-TV

EPSON MFP imageTeea grew up in rural Missouri near the Kansas border. “We listened to an AM radio station that played classic country music,” she recalls. “When I started to school in the 1980s, I didn’t even know who Michael Jackson and Madonna were.” Although she was singing in church by the time she was three, it wasn’t until she turned eight that she got her big break. That’s when the producers of the nearby Truman Lake Opry spotted her wowing a crowd in a talent contest. With her mother’s cautious approval, Goans became a full-fledged member of the Opry a year later. She continued to perform there every week until she was 17, frequently opening for such Grand Ole Opry stars as Bill Anderson, Little Jimmy Dickens and Grandpa Jones. In 2002, she crossed her fingers and moved to Nashville.

With That’s Just Me, vocalist Teea Goans fuels the enthusiasm she first ignited with her 2010 debut album, The Way I Remember It. That treasury of traditional country tunes earned Goans four appearances on the Grand Ole Opry and a guest spot on the TV show that celebrated Bill Anderson’s 50th anniversary as an Opry member. In its glowing review of The Way I Remember It, Country Weekly magazine observed that the album “reminds us that country can be simple yet sophisticated and, sometimes, sublime.”

In addition, Goans’ music video for “Letter From God,” perhaps the most popular song on the album, was a finalist for a 2011 Regional Emmy Award in the arts category.  Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers were so impressed by Goans’ music that they picked her to open their shows during their month-long run last fall at the Oak Ridge Boys Theater in Branson, Missouri.

(Teea Goans, by the way, is pronounced TEE-uh GO-uhnz.)

The 35 mile long Armstrong Trail is located on the former Allegheny Valley Railroad line along the eastern bank of the Allegheny River in Armstrong and Clarion Counties. The trail links such towns as Ford City, Kittanning and East Brady and is a great place to bicycle, walk, jog, bird watch, geocache or exercise in a safe relaxing environment. Horseback riding and cross country skiing are also possible on designated sections. The trail is for non-motorized use only.

20 miles of trail have been improved with crushed limestone or asphalt surface. Funding for materials and volunteer labor have been secured for another 6 miles of trail targeted for completion by 2013. Plans are being developed to improve trail conditions and to better establish connections with the Redbank Valley Trails and others in the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail. Please visit the Interactive Google Map under Trail Maps for updated information on trail improvements, trail surface, and photos of the trail.
