Cheese Doodles socially spark our lives in so many ways. On behalf of National Cheese Doodle Day, here’s a little background on the history of the cheesy snack. Invented in the 1950s by Yorie Mohai, the Cheese Doodle is a snack food made out of cornmeal that is puffed, baked, fried and coated with cheddar cheese. Mohai served in World War II and when he returned home to his native Bronx, NY, he joined the family business — Old London Snack Foods. During the 60s, another snack food company called Wise acquired his company and his Cheese Doodles became a snack food under the potato chip division. To date, the company produces more than 15 million pounds of Cheese Doodles annually. The beloved Cheese Doodle is also the preferred brand sold at the NY Mets home games. Other Cheese Doodle Snack Brand Names There are many other Cheese Doodle snack brand company’s around such as Cheetos, Utz Cheese Balls and Pirate Booty, to name a few. So whatever your fancy, remember today, out of all days to say “Cheese” and celebrate National Cheese Doodle Day with your fave cheese doodle snack food.

The Wind Beneath Paul McCarney's Wings Blows Fierce Legendary acoustic guitarist Laurence Juber’s wind beneath Paul McCartney’s WINGS blows mighty fierce. This two time Grammy®-Winner and lead guitarist in WINGS has been busy traveling to promote his new CD released today, LJ Can’t Stop Playing The Beatles, along with his recent Book, GUITAR WITH WINGS: A Photographic Memoir. He flew into the Big Apple Wednesday night for an inimate chat with Hudson Union Society for its members including a 90 minute acoustic performance held at New York City’s The Cornell Club. (c) Justin Hoch; CLICK HERE Laurence Juber, lead guitarist for Paul McCartney’s WINGS at Hudson Union Society Event 3/1/17. (c) Justin Hoch The Inside Scoop Laurence Juber (LJ) explains to the audience how classical music — particularly Bach — had a profound influence on the Beatles, on LJ himself and their music. The beloved Beatles classic Blackbird is a prime example. The song has its roots in Bach; just the accompany part. The melody is something else, says LJ. LJ demonstrates his process to create a melody rooted in classical music. One of the techniques that LJ uses to create a melody rooted in classical is called DADGAD. It’s where he changes the guitar tuning by dropping the bottom string and the top C strings on the guitar down a whole set. The DAGDAD process or type of tuning is used by Keltic guitar players as well. According to LJ, one interesting root that it took was that it got used by the iconic Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin). Their song Kashmir is in this tuning. Laurence Juber’s newest CD is actually the third of a Beatles music series that began in 2000. Around that time, LJ had been doing a few arrangements of Beatles tunes, and people kept asking him to do a whole album. But the fingerstyle guitar master wanted to focus on composing. That’s when his wife Hope urged hime to record an album of Beatles tunes – if not for anybody else, then for her — so she could listen to it in her car. “In that case,” she said, “if you want to produce it, then I will do it.” And, from his wife’s urging, out came LJ Plays The Beatles! (2000); followed by LJ Plays the Beatles Volume 2 (2010) and his newest LJ Can’t Stop Playing The Beatles (2017). Acoustic Guitar Magazine voted LJ Plays The Beatles one of the top 10 all time acoustic guitar albums. -- Abbe is Socially Sparked! @asparks01 Socially Sparked News, CLICK HERE TAGS: #Laurence Juber #Beatles #WINGS #music #SociallySparked

Empathy plus action equals solidarity — Billy Bragg, musician, singer/songwriter, grassroots political activist
That was a recurring theme from singer/songwriter and grassroots activist Billy Bragg during an impassioned Keynote Speech on freedom of speech and social change during last week's Folk Alliance Conference in Kansas City. In the spirit of folk music, activism and social justice, there are few better than the legendary Billy Bragg to ignite action for change. Activism in Art was the theme of this year's Folk Alliance Conference. The colors of their hair may be 50 shades of gray now, but that has not stopped our world’s music leaders and old-time musicians from attending this year’s conference in droves. Add the many talented younger musicians and everyone in between, and you have a movement in the making of beautiful music. An echoing undercurrent througout the week is that the time is now to re-activiate the songs of old; replace some of the old lyrics with your own, and/or create new lyrical messaging. The latter aimed specifically to millenials, gen xers and gen zers in attendance. Speaking to a packed ballroom filled with folk, blues, bluegrass and alternative musicians, lyricists, agents, presenters and more, Bragg cautions that we have to fight against our own cynicism. “A cynic is someone who has given up,” says Bragg. Throughout the Conference, pocket books of the United States Constitution were handed out to attendees. Citing the Constitution and what it stands for Bragg urges the crowd to “use the words.” A few more Braggisms:
“Music can’t change the world. The audience is the only people who can. Music is the motivator."
He also reminded the audience of musicians and change makers that music is the empowering force to make your statements. And, that “nobody came to Kansas City to read your tweets,” referring to technology and social media and how easy it is to put out your rants in that medium.
“I’m here to kick ass,” said Billy.
And, kick-ass he did! -- Abbe is Socially Sparked! @sosparkednews
