Link Love: Cool Dallas Events and Farewell to Doc

RIP Doc Watson 1923-2012

Some really good events coming up this month for Dallas business owners.  Mark your calendars…

  • On June 7 the Dallas chapter of the Women’s Franchise Network has a panel discussion luncheon at Gleneagles Country Club.  The panel features Dallas top business leaders discussing franchise growth and success strategies.  You can register here.  The event is coordinated by Ann Hurwitz, who chairs the Franchise and Distribution Law practice at Baker Botts’ Dallas office.
  • There’s a Dallas CEO Roundtable on June 27 where local business owners will discuss how to build a culture of accountability – not entitlement – in your workforce.  The event takes place at the uber-cool Corporate Office Centers space at the Park 17 building.  The meetings are intentionally kept small and interactive, so sign up early if you’re interested.

Last week was a tough one for music lovers last week, as we lost guitar great Doc Watson.  I had the chance to see Doc several times, and count as one of my top musical
thrills the time I got to interview him for my college newspaper back in the ‘70s.  If you’ve never heard him, do yourself a favor.  Go to YouTube and watch this clip.  This was Doc relatively late in his life, playing an instrument he’d never seen (he lost his sight as an infant).  Then go find a copy of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s album (yes, we used to call them albums) Will the Circle Be Unbroken and listen to the tracks where Doc plays.  It was always humbling to hear him play.  This week’s shout out goes one last time to the amazing Doc Watson.

As of this writing the Texas Rangers are licking their wounds from last night’s football-score 21-10 loss to the Seattle Mariners.  Ranger skipper Ron Washington is right when he says “that’s the way baseball go”.  Let’s hope that particular kind of baseball can go somewhere else.  We love us some Rangers, but that was painful.
