    The first commercial, “Old Home Filler-Up an’ Keep on a-Truckin’ Caf?,” proved so popular (it won a Clio Award) that Fries began to write a series of truck-driving songs with Chip Davis, who’d go on to form the neo-classical group Mannheim Steamroller.
    Sentences that take a turn.

    This is incredibly sad. Mike Bossy is my all time favorite hockey player. Growing up in Michigan during the 1970s as a Red Wings fan we didn't have much to cheer about. Notre Dame had a player in the 1970s named Dave Bossy who was Mike Bossy's cousin, so I began to root for Mike and the Islanders when I saw the name in a hockey preview guide a couple of years after Dave Bossy graduated. You had to work really hard in those days in a lot of places to follow the NHL and Bossy's exploits seemed like they were from another world. When Gretzky scored 50 goals in 39 games just a year after Bossy became only the second NHL player to score 50 goals in 50 games I remember thinking Bossy could have done that too if none of the guys on the ice with him bothered to play any defense, and Gretzky never had that problem!

    I think the clear thing to do is pronounce it "gritty."

    Taylor was in some cool docs- one Stewart Copeland did that you can find on yourtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBma...tewartCopeland

    And a netflix doc "Count Me In"- I'm sure he's in a lot more than that- but some good stuff there. While he's known for his rock and pop drumming, he's also good up on the history of drums.
