Acclaimed producer and prolific songwriter Bernie Herms received the BMI Christian Music Songwriter of the Year Award at last night’s BMI Christian Music Awards, the top honor of the night and another victory for Herms who won a GRAMMY® for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song earlier this year. He also received four BMI Song Awards for “Christ In Me,” “Just Be Held,” “Thy Will” and “Tell Your Heart To Beat Again.”

'Anything Goes' Now Playing at UTK Carousel Theater--A Review

Chevy Anz and cast perform "Blow Gabriel Blow" in TVP's "Anything Goes"

The Tennessee Valley Players (TVP) are performing the classic Cole Porter musical "Anything Goes" at UT Knoxville's Carousel Theatre this week starring Chevy Anz as Reno Sweeney with Hannah Brown as Hope Harcourt and Tyler Padgett as Billy Crocker.

The musical comedy is directed by Edmund Bolt whose wife Susan stars as Evangeline Harcourt.


Anything Goes Plot

The play follows the tale of Billy Crocker, who stows away on a cruise ship to try to woo his memorable one-night-stand lover, Hope Harcourt. Meanwhile, former evangelist turned night-club-singer, Reno Sweeney has eyes for Billy and thinks the much-younger Billy loves her.


Compounding the plot are two would-be criminals, Moonface Martin (Jack Francis) and his sidekick Erma (Roxanne Cabrera) who sneak onto the boat in disguise. Moonface, Erma and eventually Reno all conspire to help Billy win Hope away from her older, wealthy English fiancé, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh (Kevin Smathers).


Anything Goes Songs

Full of popular musical staples like "I Get A Kick Out of You," "You're the Top," "It's DeLovely," and "Anything Goes," the play has enough big numbers to keep the audience tapping their toes to the familiar Cole Porter lyrics and melodies, anticipating the next song. With the musical talents of opera students and veteran performers like Chevy Anz, the TVP version is definitely easy to listen to.


The set looked a little rickety and the dancing sometimes left something to be desired, but the costuming was eye catching enough to hold the attention and the performances of some of the cast were noteworthy. 


Cast Members Worth Noting

Standouts included lead Chevy Anz who made a believable Reno--the bawdy showgirl with a heart of gold, Jack Francis as the frustrated and apparently almost harmless gangster Moonface Martin, and Roxanne Cabrera who stole any scene she was in as the flighty, flirty, braying gangster's moll, Erma.


The plot is somewhat mature and moderately anti-religion/anti-Christian* and was considered risqué when the musical premiered in 1934 but is fairly tame in light of 21st-century entertainment


The second week of "Anything Goes" runs June 22, 23 and 24 at 7:30 pm and June 25 at 3:00 pm at the Ula Love Doughty Carousel Theatre at University of Tennessee in Knoxville. 


*( i.e. evangelist turned night-club singer, bawdy references to angels, two "padres" on the ship both less-than-savory characters, burlesque "revival" service, etc.)

Losing a Friend to Suicide


I recently learned one of my friends killed himself a week ago. To say I was shocked to learn this is a vast understatement. This was someone who had already achieved a great deal and was  headed towards bigger and better things. He was admired, respected and loved by his peers and those he had authority over. It is inconceivable that this man would take his own life.

Camkix 4in1 Phone Lens Kit with Fisheye and Zoom Review


I ordered the Camkix 4in1 Phone Lens Kit on Amazon.com after seeing a clip-on zoom lens for camera phones advertised on Instagram with terrible reviews.  The Camkix 4in1 Phone Lens had better reviews on Amazon, so I decided to give it a try. This is my review of the kit.

Positives

The customer service I received from Camkix was outstanding after there was a problem with my first order. I received fast, polite, professional service and was completely satisfied with how they resolved the situation.

The concept is great.

The case is functional, with a place for the lenses to screw in which works well. It appears to be moderately sturdy. It slipped over my iPhone 6S like a glove.

The Camkix fisheye lens is of good quality and a lot of fun to use. See photo below.



Negatives

The telephoto lens is not good It provides only moderately more zoom than the functionality of my iPhone camera does and the quality of the image is poor. See photos below.

Photo taken with basic iPhone lens

Photo taken with Camkix 4in1 Phone Telefoto Lens


Untested

I have not used the tripod yet but many other reviewers have indicated it is sub-standard. I forgot to test the wide angle lens which has to be unscrewed from the fish eye lens to be used. I don't like to have to unscrew two small lenses to use the wide angle.

The price for the three camera lenses, case and tripod was $38 plus free shipping on Amazon. I don't think I will use the telefoto lens much at all, but I do like the fisheye lens and look forward to testing the inconvenient wide angle lens and the tripod.

Overall I am moderately happy with my purchase and don't feel like it was a waste of my money.

May 17 at the Top RF Party in Brentwood



We were treated to a lovely spring party on the deck of a home that overlooks the Brentwood valley.Good food,drinks, weather and friends made it a lovely evening.

My friend Donna, a Lexus driver and 6-figure income earner with Rodan + Fields, hosted a lovely spring Cocktails and Conversations at the Top party last night at her beautiful Brentwood home.

Donna's deck overlooks much of the Brentwood valley and offers a spectacular view that changes with the lighting.

From other direct marketing companies, people have the idea we try to sell them something or sign them up, but that couldn't have been further from the truth last night! We drank wine, ate appetizers, enjoyed beautiful late-spring weather and just socialized and relaxed on the deck.

We even had our own comedienne on hand who kept us entertained all night. Thanks Kari Caldwell Reidle!

Sure, the topic of skincare came up a couple of times, but there was no presentation. Just a small display guests could walk by if they were curious

If you have been looking for something to do in the nooks and crannies of your life that is fun and can bring in a nice income, we should talk! Connect with me below.

House Passes Historic Health Care Language that Defunds Planned Parenthood --Christian Activities

Good News for the Not-Yet-Born!
By a vote of 217-213 - the thinnest of margins - the House of Representatives voted yesterday to advance a health care provision that would defund Planned Parenthood for one year.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, stated; "We applaud this historic vote by the House of Representatives as a first step in defunding Planned Parenthood which is the largest abortion provider in the world. Every day, Planned Parenthood takes the lives of almost 900 innocent children and over 320,000 every year. The pro-life community will work passionately to see the Senate votes to defund and that this piece of legislation will end up on the desk of President Trump and be signed into law.."
