Big Weekly Blend Magazine – Vol. 1, Issue 9, August 2023



“August is the slow, gentle month that stretches out the longest across the span of a year. It yawns and lingers on with the light in its palms.” Victoria Erickson

From blues rocker Lance Lopez, legendary jazz guitarist Juan Carlos Quintero, and southwest artist Ted DeGrazia, to new music from composer Steve McAllister and the Bay Area group Donovan Plant & The Leafs, this issue kicks off with interviews showcasing music makers across the country.

As always, travel is part of the lineup with this issue sharing what to experience in the late summer in Asheville, North Carolina, and the fascinating stories behind historic lodgings along the Jefferson Highway in Mason City, Iowa, and in Natchitoches and Alexandria in Louisiana.

We also dive into the natural world with Dr. David Scheel who talks about the mysteries of octopuses, as covered in his new book, “Many Things Under a Rock.”

Law & Order also has a place in this issue with travel writer Debbie Stone giving us an overview of the organized crime history on display at the Mob Museum in Las Vegas, and employment lawyer Ward Heinrichs outlining some of the legislative bills pending in California.
