Dayhoff Time Flies: Ocean City - Down the ocean, hon.


Dayhoff Time Flies: Ocean City - Down the ocean, hon.

Sunday, June 30, 2019 by Kevin E. Dayhoff

This year I enjoyed the summer solstice, Friday, June 21, by doing a 2.25-mile run on the boardwalk in Ocean City. According to the Washington Post, “The summer solstice is … our longest day and shortest night of the year, and the first day of
astronomical summer in Earth’s Northern Hemisphere… In Washington, the sun
(was) up for 14 hours and 54 minutes on June 21, rising in the northeastern sky
(at) 5:43 a.m. and setting in the northwest at 8:37 p.m. (For perspective,
that’s about 5½ hours more daylight than seen on the winter solstice in
December.)”

I could not think of a better way to spend the longest day
of the year than to spend it in Ocean City “down the ocean, hon.”

Some of my fondest childhood memories include leisurely
vacations on the Chesapeake Bay, explorations throughout the Eastern Shore and
walking on the boardwalk in Ocean City. For some reason French fries, pizza and
ice cream, always taste better when it is mixed with an ocean salt breeze,
walking the boardwalk, while fighting off the seagulls.




Dayhoff Time Flies - Maryland State Police Major (Retired) Krome, 79, of Carroll County

Dayhoff Time Flies - Maryland State Police Major (Retired) Krome, 79, of Carroll County

Sunday, June 23, 2019 by Kevin E. Dayhoff

On Monday, June 10, 2019, Maryland State Police Major (Retired) Morris (Moe) L. Krome, 79, of Carroll County, passed away at Carroll Hospice Dove House. Krome was the husband of Carolyn Dudley Krome for 55-years. Together they owned a farm in rural Carroll County where they trained show horses.

Krome was the unofficial Dean Emeritus of Maryland Troopers and considered by many to be an icon of the discipline, professionalism, excellence and intelligence that we have come to know as the Maryland State Police (MSP) since its earliest beginnings in 1921.

For decades Krome held court at a small table at the VFW with his lifelong friend, Special Drug Enforcement Administration, (DEA) Agent (Retired) Tim Clark, the first Monday of every month at the monthly meeting of the Maryland Troopers Association (MTA) Lodge 20.

Imagine Dragons - Whatever It Takes


#amwriting

“Whatever it takes” Imagine Dragons

October 6, 2017

Falling too fast to prepare for this
Tripping in the world could be dangerous
Everybody circling, it's vulturous
Negative, nepotist

Everybody waiting for the fall of man
Everybody praying for the end of times
Everybody hoping they could be the one
I was born to run, I was born for this

Whip, whip
Run me like a racehorse
Pull me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up

Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top I'm ready for
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

Always had a fear of being typical
Looking at my body feeling miserable
Always hanging on to the visual
I wanna be invisible

Looking at my years like a martyrdom
Everybody needs to be a part of 'em
Never be enough, I'm the prodigal son
I was born to run, I was born for this

Whip, whip
Run me like a racehorse
Pull me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up

Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top, I'm ready for
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

Hypocritical, egotistical
Don't wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
Working onto something that I'm proud of, out of the box
An epoxy to the world and the vision we've lost
I'm an apostrophe
I'm just a symbol to remind you that there's more to see
I'm just a product of the system, a catastrophe
And yet a masterpiece, and yet I'm half-diseased
And when I am deceased
At least I go down to the grave and die happily
Leave the body and my soul to be a part of thee
I do what it takes

Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top, I'm ready for
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

Councilmember Kevin Dayhoff Arts Council report for the June 10, 2019 Westminster mayor and Council meeting:

Councilmember Kevin Dayhoff Arts Council report for the June 10, 2019 Westminster
mayor and Council meeting:

There are quite a number of other events coming to the Arts Council. 


For the sake of time, I will just mention two events here. For more information
go to: www.CarrollCountyArtsCouncil.org


I was not able to attend the
annual Art in the Park festival held on the grounds of Westminster City Hall. In
1993 I exhibited at the first Art in the Park and have exhibited a number of
times in the past, but this year I volunteered to help with the horses at the
annual Equestrian Special Olympics.

By all reports, this year’s
Art in the park went well – and was well-attended. This year, according to a
May 29, 2019 article by Cat Righter in the Carroll County Times - Susan
Williamson, the visual arts coordinator with the Carroll County Arts Council,
said that about 58 artists participated. Read the full story here: https://www.carrollcountytimes.com/entertainment/cc-en-art-park-20190528-story.html

“The Art of the
Musical Instrument” June 20 through August 9, 2019

include: “The Art of the Musical Instrument” Exhibit at the Carroll Arts Center

The Carroll Arts Center is
proud to be hosting a new exhibit in the Tevis Gallery from June 20 through
August 9, 2019. The “The Art of the Musical Instrument” weaves together sound,
narrative, history, and actual musical instruments. Guest curator Ryan A.
Koons, PhD, focuses on musical instruments as crafted art objects with diverse
histories as well as objects that create beautiful sounds.

This exhibit coincides with a
performance by Wherligig,
the Carroll-based traditional Celtic and Nordic acoustic ensemble, who will perform on Saturday, June
29 at 8 pm using several instruments from the exhibit.

Also on exhibit in the
Community Gallery are artworks by members of the Carroll County Camera Club in a show titled “Lens Art”
featuring new works in a variety of photographic styles.

The public is invited to a … reception for both exhibits on Thursday,
June 20, 2019 from 5 to 7 pm
.
Complimentary hors d'oeuvres and cash bar will be part of the festivities. The
exhibit is free and open to the public.
