"Every time two fools collide" Songwriter Jan Dyer

The first thing I noticed when I walked into Jan Dyer's house was a gold record hanging on the wall. I didn't want to seem too obvious so I just kept glancing at it out of the corner of my eye. It is an amazing thing to see. Kenny Rogers and Dottie West recorded "Everytime two fools collide" in 1978 which Jan co-wrote. I have had the pleasure of hearing Jan sing it several times.

That day was awesome. The collection of songwriters she welcomed into her home for a gumbo feast was amazing as was the gumbo. It was such a wonderful day of music, food and friendship. I hope there are many more events like this in the future.

As for Jan, she is a wonderful, down-home person that doesn't know a stranger. She continues to write and perform. I am sure 2010 will bring Jan an abundance of success. She is a treaure and I am so glad to call her a friend.

Peace and love to all,

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
