Spring and All That Jazz.

We have turned the corner from winter, and are now in the season of hiking, sunbathing, planting, baseball, canoeing, outdoor events, spring and all that jazz.

Speaking of that, the Murfreesboro Public Square will host its big annual music event, JazzFest, May 1–2. Get jazzy. Get outside.
The Nashville Predators are preparing to enter the playoffs, and they have the best record in the NHL. Let’s see what they can do with a little springtime ice fever.

In music news, Murfreesboro will host The Voice winner Craig Wayne Boyd; Boro Fondo once again rolls through town; Hippie Hill continues its concert festival series; and garages, sanctuaries, restaurants and schools all over are putting out beautiful sounds.

Many in Murfreesboro appreciate the wealth of great dining options in our town. Whether you want awesome fish tacos (MexiVen), some corned beef and cabbage or bangers and mash (O’Possum’s), sushi, Thai, great burgers and barbecue or Southern soul food, Murfreesboro has it.

The Clay Pit has been serving delicious Indian food for many years; and now, across town, Tandoor has opened, serving similar fare. There’s room for all, right?

Keep supporting your local merchants. If you like, visit the Pulse’s Facebook page and give us a “like”, and we’ll “like” you back. Let’s keep the independent business news flowing and help each other out where we can.

This month’s Pulse also has some fun with the upcoming Lego KidsFest coming to the Nashville Convention Center, an inspiring success story from a former homeless man, a look at the big Mayweather/Pacquiao fight, and some coverage of some very serious subjects as well: a recent child rape case plus a look at the death of a local young woman last year.
It’s also Earth Day later this month. Get earthy.

Show love and respect to all of God’s creatures: people and animals alike—the vulnerable, the odd, those different from you, those who you may initially find disgusting, frightening or unlovable. This person may be of a different race, background, language or religion than you, this animal may be a slithering snake, a fuzzy bunny, a stinky cat or a weird-looking bug. But we are all on this earth together.

Let’s make it a nice experience for all.

Thanks for letting the Pulse be a part of your community, business, art, events and reading habits. For everyone contributing towards making this publication a reality each month: I appreciate it! Together we are creating something of special value.
More and more, I see people out reading the Pulse at the gym, at the restaurant, at the pool, at home or at the doctor.
We’ll try to keep it interesting.
