Dublin, Texas: The Stephenville Empire-Tribune‘s article, “Irish Capitol of Texas’ preparing for huge St. Patrick’s Day Festival,” mentioned me. It says, “Live entertainment will begin at 11:30 a.m. as Rickey Pittman, guitarist and singer, performs classic Irish songs . . .” This ought to be a really cool festival. I will participate in the parade, perform twice, and intend on seeing some sights, including the historic Dr. Pepper Bottling Co. If you like to drink Dr. Pepper, go to this site to see a history of the drink: http://www.dublindrpepper.com/history.aspx
