  Mardi Gras may have been canceled again this year but on Saturday, February the 13th, folks around here got a little taste (literally) of Mardi Gras at the Legion Post in Leeds.

  Finally!! Something to do around here, something that feels a little like normal. There have been NO events at the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center since the start of this pandemic, actually, I think that last years show may have been the last event there, and since this year marks the 50thg anniversary of the Birmingham show, it was a good thing that it didn't get canceled like the Nashville show did back in January.

  On January the 26th, 2021, several members of the Birmingham H.O.G Chapter joined up with their "ROMEO" group for a ride out to The Back Porch Grill at Lake Logan Martin. Lake Logan Martin is always a great place to ride to, fun roads and wonderful scenery along the way. These guys are always riding some place cool.

Letter to the readers

  Well what a year 2020 was...right?

  So many of the events we normally would go cover were canceled due to the pandemic, just as everything around ALL of us around the world were. We were all affected in one-way or another. And TOO many have lost loved ones as well; our hearts go out to them all. Our deepest gratitude goes out to all the frontline workers who put their life on the lines.

  I think there were many lessons to be learned along the way.

The lesson of UNDERSTANDING. Understanding that we are all in the same boat...of life.

The lesson of COMPASSION for others, whether we know them or not.

The lesson of UNITY, that we are better off when we work together regardless of color or status.

The lesson of PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY, that also includes each of us being mindful of surfaces we touch that are also touched by many others and that germs are laid down and picked up that same way, so we should not only think of protecting ourselves but others as well, even after the pandemic is over, because even Colds, Flu & other viruses will be with us even after the pandemic is over.

The lesson of LOVE, to love one another as our brother and sisters.

The lesson of FAITH, that through our faith in God, he will see us through ALL of this.

  We are so very grateful to all of our readers and advertisers, grateful to all of you who shared your stories with us and hope that we all enjoy more adventures to share in this coming New Year.

We also pray that ALL of you have a Happy, Safe, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!!

Ride On!

Well the Spring Thunder Beach Rally in Panama City Beach, Florida was canceled due to the Covid-19, as was most everything, but people were holding out hope that the Fall Rally would indeed take place, being so many months down the road, but as the time grew nearer word came out that it too would not take place as the city was denying permits. People were very upset because the hotels were not doing refunds on the rooms that had already been booked, even though what they had been booked for was canceled, so those people were planning on going down anyway and who could blame them. Then just weeks out, that decision was reversed but by then there wasn't enough time to get all of the venues in place and several of the vendors had made other arrangements.
