Plenty of Jedi at the Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 has come to a close. For my husband and me, both Celebration virgins, the event did not disappoint. Sure, there were ridiculously early mornings trying to get wristbands for key panels, crowds of jostling people, long lines and the fact that one can only humanly do a fraction of what is offered--but the things we got to see and experience were totally worth it.

Our first Star Wars Celebration experience. Read the rest

Do the Star Wars sway to this 1977 country song, "May the Force Be With You Always"

Tom T. Hall's "May the Force Be With You" always was the first single from his November 1977 album New Train Same Rider. The song hit number 13 on Billboard's "Hot Country Songs" chart and went to number 5 in Canada. Sing along with me now, sweetheart:

There is a force that moves our lives from place to place There is a force exchanging smiles from face to face If we must go and we must go then we will be apart May the force be with you always sweetheart.

There is a force that moves the wind and changes tides Not that we would but if we should we couldn't hide The force is all and we as one are but a tiny part May the force be with you always sweetheart.

The force is bigger than the little plans we made The force picks winners in the little games we play If we are part of something bigger we can face the dark May the force be with you always sweetheart
