The Mid South Food Bank In Memphis Needs Our Help!

The main guest expected at nearly every dinner table on Thanksgiving may not arrive in time for hundreds of needy families. Not even one turkey has been donated so far to the Mid-South Food Bank. “I can’t tell you why,” said president and CEO Susan Sanford. The non-profit had hundreds of turkeys to supply the main course for holiday meals by this time last year, she said. The Mid-South Food Bank serves 250 organizations in 31 counties in Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas. Anyone wanting to donate can drop by the organization’s Memphis office Mondays-Thursdays from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. or Fridays from 8 a.m.-noon at 239 S. Dudley St., south of Union Ave. or call 527-0841. BIM NOTE: No family should go without a holiday meal, so this Thanksgiving as we give thanks for all we have, let's give to those who could use alittle help this year. No donation is too small or large! Every dollar counts! Or use this link to make a donation: Mid South Food Bank Donations

Myrna Smith Update From Carole Drexler

I am sad to report that Myrna continues to be very weak, her health is not good, & she sleeps most of the time.  She is still getting dialysis three times a week.  Myrna's friend Diane & I read her every card & note sent (address for cards is below).  Please keep Myrna in your prayers.  And please know that Myrna really appreciates all of the love, prayers & help you so generously send her way & she loves you for it. As you know, we paid $5,184.00 (donated by the fans) to Canyon Oaks Nursing & Rehabilitation Center which was Myrna's share of the money owed for her stay there from June 2010 through 10/31/10.  Canyon Oaks had notified Social Security that Myrna is now living there & her monthly SS payment should be paid directly to Canyon Oaks.  Myrna's SS payment was supposed to take care of her monthly responsibility of $1,296 to Canyon Oaks starting 11/1/10.  On Fri., I found out that SS had sent Myrna's payment to her brother's bank a

Johnny Cash To Be Inducted Into The Gospel Music Hall Of Fame

Jonny Cash is to be inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, following in the footsteps of Elvis Presley and Pat Boone. Cash, who died in 2003 at the age of 71, was brought up with gospel music and famously turned to religion as he tried to beat drug addiction. DeGarmo and Key, the Golden Gate Quartet and Bill "Hoss" Allen will also join the hall of fame this year. They will be inducted on 24 January in Hendersonville, Tennessee. More than 150 members, including Let's Stay Together singer Al Green and Amazing Grace composer John Newton, have been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame since its foundation in 1971. In 1980, Cash was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame while, in 1992, he became a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Graceland Will Flip The Switch On Nov 19th!

Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis, TN will officially begin the holiday season by "flipping the switch" for the annual lighting celebration on this Friday, November 19, with the traditional lights and decorations on the 13.8 acre mansion property. The extensive display includes hundreds of blue lights along the driveway, a life-size Nativity scene, Santa and his sleigh and much more originally displayed at Graceland by Elvis and the Presley family. The event this year will also support the American Red Cross, with the Bloodmobile on site as part of an awareness campaign to encourage the public to donate blood during the holidays, a historically critical time for blood inventory. During his lifetime, Elvis supported the Red Cross and frequently donated blood while in the Army. Highlighting the 2010 lighting ceremony will be Lee DeWyze, winner of the ninth season of American Idol, who will join with a Red Cross blood recipient and "flip the switch" to officia
