Saturday Music Memories – Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians in my online community (and Happy Weekend to everyone else)!

Enjoy the long weekend and the time you get to spend with family and friends.

Way down the list of things I am thankful for is the fantastic music that has come out of Canada over the years. Bryan Adams is close to the top of my list!

Here is an old classic “Run To You” from 1983!

Have a great weekend…

I love reading his blog:

A Fool’s Eye View of  Human Resources” is a breath of fresh air in a profession that can sometimes lack “jam”. He has a new book out called “What Thinks You?” which I am just loving! It is a collection of his best blog posts.

Before I got in to the meat of the book, I stopped in my tracks at the foreword. Check out this fantastic piece of writing by Joe Gerstandt titled “Taking Chances”.
