ROCK & ROLL AT THE OKLAHOMA HISTORY CENTER

The exhibit may be called "Another Hot Oklahoma Night" but it was a rainy afternoon for the grand opening of the Oklahoma History Center's look at the history of rock and roll music in Oklahoma.

Displays included items from the Flaming Lips, All American Rejects, the Red Dirt Rangers and numerous other musicians from Oklahoma.

AURORA CEMETERY - ALIEN GRAVE ?

On Friday, April 3rd, we again visited the Aurora (TX) Cemetery, which is about 10 miles west of the Texas Motor Speedway. An alien was allegedly buried in the cemetery following the crash of his spacecraft on April 19, 1897.

Why had Birdie O. Bradshaw's gravesite been burned recently?

KINCAID'S HAMBURGERS - WHERE FRIENDS MEET TO EAT

After a long day last Saturday at the Texas Motor Speedway, we had to check out the original Kincaid's Hamburgers at 4901 Camp Bowie Blvd. in Ft. Worth TX. Kincaid's is one of Hamburger America's "100 Great Burger Joints."

At the counter in the back of the restaurant, your order is written on a white sack and when your name is called, your food is inside the same sack. We had a hamburger and cheeseburger with a side of fried okra. Add in a $6 tee shirt and the order was less than $20.
