It’s a new season….Fall is in the air….Time for change…..so let’s get to it.  We’re going to be adding a whole bunch of new stuff this time around.  We’ve already thrown a few new songs and ideas at you guys and they seem to be going over pretty well so we’re going to stay on that path.  This coming year promises to be really cool so stay tuned!

With fall comes the holiday season.  Everyone is starting to think about Halloween…..Thanksgiving…..and (eek) Christmas (It’s already here again?!).   It is definately time to think about family and friends and to just have a good time all around but this holiday season….don’t forget to take a look around at the one’s that might not have it as well as we do.  Things are tough for everyone right now….but they’re a little tougher for some.  Don’t be afraid to tell a stranger hello.  If you have some spare change….that guy on the sidewalk might actually buy a sandwich.   Consider giving to the local food bank this year.  All these little things add up to something big.  If everyone pitches in just a little this year…..then 2012 is sure to end well for a lot of people….even in these tough times.

Be sure and stay tuned to the website (http://chicoandchris.com) for all updates on what’s going on.  We’re adding dates constantly (We’re already booking into Mardi Gras….so get ready!).   If you have any cool ideas you would like to see at the show….maybe a song you thought would be great for Chico & Chris to cover…..or maybe a great idea for an original song…..we’d love to hear your ideas.  Drop us a line and let us know!

Independence Day…..No….Not the movie (Although that was a good one huh?) No I’m talking about America’s Independence.  Today we celebrate all that is American….by eating BBQ and Burgers while blowing stuff up.  Now THAT’S American!

In our pursuit of happiness and our day to day struggle to survive we as a country need to take a step back and really remember what was sacrificed to build America.  We sometimes seem to take for granted the way of life we have become accustomed to.  Things weren’t always the way we know it.  Through the years, many men and women sacrificed  their homes, their families, their lives to make this country strong, independent & free.  When we fail to recognize and acknowledge their sacrifices we are in danger of letting down our guard and becoming complacent.  When that happens we begin to let people walk over us, control us, take away our freedoms that generations before us fought and died for.  To do that would be to disrespect their legacy.  If we forget what was lost in order to live freely then we are doomed to be shackled and controlled……Not free.

Go ahead and get to the festivities…..and today…..when you’re grillling up those burgers……..lighting those fireworks……raising that flag…….swelling with pride over being an American……remember that we didn’t get here overnight.  It was a long hard battle for freedom.  If we’re not careful…..it could be gone in an instant.  The battle for true freedom never ends…..it’s an ongoing battle.  There is always someone right around the corner that wants to take it away from you.  Always be prepared to fight for your freedom.  Keep America strong.  Keep America Great.  Keep America FREE!

 Enjoy your time with family today.  Happy 4th of July………and let the bells of freedom ring (or at least the fireworks of freedom explode).

Happy 4th of July
