A friend and I recently journeyed to Cleveland, Ohio
to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
. As a rock and roll history junkie, I was in heaven. It felt like my life was flashing before my eyes, especially while viewing 1980s
music videos at the MTV
Why is it in Cleveland you ask? Because Alan Freed
, who coined the term "rock and roll"
was a deejay
there in the early 1950s

exhibit featuring clothing, concert posters, instruments, video and drum covers. Groooooooooovy!

An hour from Cleveland in Sandusky, Ohio is Cedar Point
. Being a roller coaster freak
, we had to visit. Amusement parks
sure have changed since I was a kid
. Yikes. My voice is still hoarse from screaming with joy.
