Clydesdales visit Staunton

The Budweiser Clydesdales came to Staunton on Thursday evening, as part of a nationwide tour sponsored by Anheuser-Busch. Hundreds of people of all ages -- over 21 and under 21 -- lined the streets to watch those elegant horses stepping in their well-trained cadence. Local veterans and motorcycle riders also joined the street procession. Staunton has a parade just about every month, it seems, and this makes two parades in one month! In conjunction with the parade, there was a rock concert at the wharf parking lot, sponsored by a local beer distributor and a radio station. As I learned from the News Leader, there are actually several teams of Clydesdales across the country. This one is the "East Coast Hitch," based in New Hampshire.

blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
