Gossip to exchange over line dances tonight - Shania gives Mutt the Canadian Stomp

Line dancing tonight at the Scullville Firehouse at 7:00!
1708 Somers Point Rd., EHT, NJ 08234

According to today's online news buzz, Shania & her hubby "Mutt" of 14 years are calling it quits after 14 years because of his relationship with another woman. She did sing, "Any Man of Mine"! Are you freaking kidding me?! I wonder how many men are so very grateful for his mistake...? Anyone see how the 25 men on the Bachelorette went gaga over DeAnna? If not, you missed a completely entertaining show! These men went nuts competing for her attention... it was great! I'd love to see what men start doing when they find out Shania is available again. They love her! I'd like to see Shania as the next Bachelorette! Shania is in the #4 spot today on yahoo's buzz index.

Alan Jackson, Good Time & a line dancing record

I'm really into AJ's new song Good Time! It's one of those songs that I turn up... it puts me in one of those good - I'm singing while driving my truck with the windows down - bopping along - kinda songs.

Alan Jackson is trying to set a world record for the longest line dance spanning cities and according to , states. Yeah, it said, "It takes a massive casting call to put together a music video on this scale." I want to know why I didn't get the memo! I would have been all over that!

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing this video at the end of the month when it's released. Very cool!

Here's the Good Time Line Dance on youtube...

Cape May line dancing doesn't look too likely this summer

From the Cape May Gazette...

"With two repair estimates coming in at more than $300,000, Cape May City Council will not repair Convention Hall for use this summer, it was decided at a workshop meeting Tuesday, May 6."

Not good news! It doesn't look like there will be any dancing at Convention Hall this summer :*(
Go figure... the summer that gas prices are expected to hit 4 bucks a gallon. My favorite free summer line dancing destination on the beach less than a gallon of gas away from home is no more... at least for a while.

I am going to sulk and think of more reasons I Love Country Boys... that'll cheer me up!
