Jerry, an artist who makes tables by forming cement, coloring it and inlaying designs, is displaying one of his creations at the Daily Grind.

"Chicago" Cy Taggart was the solo act at the Daily Grind this evening. His broad repertoire, excellent playing and unique arrangements of standard songs from several different genre made for a wonderful evening.

Painter Paul Steinberg was part of the packed house who enjoyed Taggart's performance. One of Steinberg's paintings hangs to the left.

Betty, a friend I once worked with, also came out for the concert.

Dianne, right, with Dick Martin, one of my college roommates from Maryland, stopped to see us on the first  leg of a trip that will take him through six states in 19 days, seeing 31 friends, classmates and family.

Jamey Whiting, left, and Harry Stevenson play in the main hall of the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in downtown Nashville. Part of the group Snappy Pappy, they play a free concert every month on a Monday when the museum has an outreach to senior citizens. The rest of the time, Whiting does studio work and Stevenson radio in the music city.

The magnificent Tiffany ceiling of the Union Station Hotel bathed in morning light. The hotel was originally the railroad station for the city, built between 1898-1900, in an era when travel was exotic and unique. Men kissed their families and went off to four wars from it's platforms, presidents and gangsters passed though, and millions of ordinary citizens traveling east and west, north and south, departed or arrived on the tracks along it's lower level. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977, underwent an $11 million renovation in 2007 and is run by Wyndham Historic Hotels.

The Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport was shut down Sunday when a security violation occurred. Travelers were stuck in the tunnel between Terminals A and B for 20 minutes while authorities checked the airport. The walls of the tunnel are a psychedelic display of changing color and design in response to music being played through speakers.
