Searching and Finding More to Come…

Farnsworth House Flooding in 2007So you went to Google, typed in a search term and found this blog called More to Come…  Here, dear readers, are the most popular terms that have brought visitors to this corner of the blogosphere.

Farnsworth House – Virtually every day I have at least one visitor seeking out information about this architectural icon.  Back in 2008, I wrote a post based on my day job where I updated friends and family on the flooding at the world famous Farnsworth House.  Since my employer – the National Trust for Historic Preservation – has owned the Farnsworth House (operated by our partners at Landmarks Illinois) it has had two major floods.  Seems those 100-year floods come more frequently than they use to!  If you want to read more about the flooding at the house – or just learn more about this architectural masterpiece – check out the site.

Good Places to Raise ChildrenMurfreesboro CourthouseSix months ago, Business Week magazine named my home town – Murfreesboro, Tennessee – as one of the top places to raise children.  While the town has succumbed to sprawl development, I think it remains a pretty special place.  So I wrote a post last November about why Murfreesboro was a great place for a kid like me.   I’m amazed at how often I’ll see a visitor looking for their special place.

Odessa Jorgensen – You guys that have typed this in (and I’ll bet most are guys) have just seen the fine young Alaskan band Bearfoot and want to know more about their lead singer and songwriter.  I heard them at Merlefest in 2009 and wrote about it that evening. 

Washington Nationals – Those who type this in know that I am an optimist.  You can’t be a long-suffering Nats fan – they’ve only been in DC for 3 or 4 years – but they sure do make it tough to keep your enthusiasm up for 162 games.  My only Nats game I’m made this year ended in a 10-10 suspended game and was a comedy of errors.  But then tonight, they tease you into thinking they can be a good team if they just had more pitching.  Dunn and Zimmerman hit solo dingers (Zim’s ensures that his hitting streak extends to 27 games), Austin Kearns gets a force out at home plate from medium right field, and they win 2-1 for their first 3-game winning streak and 5 out of their last 6.  Woo hoo!  But then you remember that the only president who has made it to the game this year are the four racing presidents, and reality returns.

So that’s what you’ve found at More to Come…a blog about baseball, roots music, and places that matter.  Root around a bit and see if you can find something of interest.

More to come…



I am David J. Brown (hence the DJB) and I originally created this personal blog more than ten years ago as a way to capture photos and memories from a family vacation. After the trip was over I simply continued writing. Over the years the blog has changed to have a more definite focus aligned with my interest in places that matter, reading well, roots music, and more. My professional background is as a national nonprofit leader with a four-decade record of growing and strengthening organizations at local, state, and national levels. This work has been driven by my passion for connecting people in thriving, sustainable, and vibrant communities.
