TV tonight: Blue Bloods, CSY: NY, and new episodes of Gold Rush

Tim Allen stars in Last Man Standing.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2012 ― First, a public service announcement: Americans are notorious for their short attention spans. Please do not forget the Hurricane Sandy victims, many of whom are still in dire straits. As if they didn’t have it bad enough, the latest storm dropped cold temperatures and snow on parts of the northeast. Please take the time to contribute to the cause and help in any way you can.

While we’re still holding that thought, isn’t it bizarre that the apocalyptic film “The Day After Tomorrow” laid out a Hollywood version of what Sandy’s victims just went through? Maybe, just maybe, it is time to focus on what kind of planet we will leave as a legacy to our children.

Now—back to our regularly scheduled programming, which tonight features, among other highlights, the new vehicle for TV fave Tim Allen and another episode in Discovery’s popular “Gold Rush.”

I was born and educated in Southwest Virginia, traveled with my job all over America in my twenties and early thirties then came back to the mountains to raise my daughter.

I’ve been employed as everything from a quality control technician in industrial construction, to a mail processing plant manager, to postmaster of a small town. I’ve been to forty nine of the fifty states, as well as many other countries. Traveling will always be a passion I indulge, and something I’ll call upon often in my writing. 

I come from a long line of story tellers, and will shamelessly exploit a family tree resplendent with colorful and unique characters, both past and present.

In short my perspective will reflect the pride and familiarity I have of my Appalachian heritage. My stories will be a reflection of the values I believe we hold dearest here, all embellished with a healthy dose of Southern Appalachian flare.
