Zac Brown Band Concert Was Worth the Pouring Rain

When I decided to go to the Zac Brown Band concert, I knew I would enjoy it, but I didn't expect it to be so good!

I went to the first of 2 ZBB concerts in Tampa this week. The show started late because of Severe Storm Warnings that brought with heavy winds, lightning, and plenty of rain. It was a good thing it was delayed because I was delayed getting there. I don't know what it is about rain that suddenly makes people forget how to drive but, it does, and I was stuck in the traffic caused by it. Once we arrived, we sat down in our wet seats, and watched the water drip from the failing roof over the amphitheater. We were wet, and I was starting to wonder just how much fun this was really going to be. By the time it was all over I had forgotten all about being wet, because the music was so good and we were having so much fun!

I was so impressed with the range of the music they played, and the fun they seemed to have doing it. They, of course, played the popular songs everyone paid to hear, like Toes, Lost, and Chicken Fried. Those songs were all as great as expected, but it was the lesser known and the cover songs that I enjoyed the most.

They played a great mix of Country, Bluegrass, Pop, and Southern Rock. I really liked the cover songs of Piano Man, Seven Bridges Road and Numb. Yes, that's right; this country band played Pink Floyd! We were dancing and singing along. It really was a lot of fun! It is probably one of the top 5 concerts of been to.

ZBB really put on a good show. They opened with an acoustic set, then moved into  some upbeat bluegrass and country songs before coming back from intermission with glowing skeleton outfits and gruesome masks. The reason for the costumes was for this great song; Day for the Dead.

I'm so glad I went to the Zac Brown Band Concert. It is surprisingly one of the best concerts I've been to, and I was happy to find out part of the ticket proceeds goes to charity. The funds go to Camp Southern Ground, a camp started to help children in need experience the fun of Summer Camp.

Zac Brown Band put on a great show. My only regret is that I didn't go to the second show too!

It was a rainy night, but the concert was a musical rainbow.

Think you're making a healthy food choice to avoid supporting a junk food company, think again. The Disturbing Truth about the Food You Eat.

On a quest to live a healthier lifestyle, my husband and I switched to a more natural diet. Changing what we eat and where it comes from has made a huge difference in our health. I find that I have more energy, and my arthritis is more manageable. He has less pain and fatigue, and his liver is healing itself. Boy, what a relief that is! And, it's all because of the choices we make in what we eat!

Since making this change, I realize how important it is to pay attention to labels and to know where my food is coming from. We really try to shop local Farmers markets and support smaller companies. I have found some of the most delicious organic treats that I can honestly say are better than any of the processed junk that I used to eat! And, along with being better for me, I'm helping small farms and cottage industries as they try to make their way in a difficult market.

Because of this natural lifestyle change and my newly found interest in what we put in our bodies, I have realized how big a business food is, and how little choice we, the consumer, really have. It's interesting to see that when you think you're choosing one peanut butter company over another because it seems healthier, that it may really be coming from the same company that just slapped a different label on it to get another corner of the market!

When it comes to food choices, it may seem like there are many companies to choose from, but in fact it is really only a small group of companies that produce the many different items on our grocery store shelves. You may be supporting a junk food company with your healthier food choice and not even know it!

The good news is the USDA has reported that the amount of Farmers Markets in the U. S. has increased. That means more choice for consumers and more hope for small business and healthier natural food choices.
