News From Along Route 66, January 2017: A Mill, a Song and a Commercial

JANUARY 18--  The Mill in Lincoln, Illinois, is set to reopen as a museum in April.  I'm looking forward to going inside it.  We've seen it often from the outside.

JANUARY 23--  Bob Seger released a tribute song to the late Glenn Frey called "Glenn Song."  A video accompanies it and shows both the long-haired and short-haired Glenn.  That guy was some sort of entertainer.

JANUARY 28--  Route 66 made the Super Bowl commercials in an appearance for Mercedes Benz, featuring "Born to be Wild" and Peter Fonda.  These tough bikers get blocked into their bar in this commercial by the Coen brothers.  As Peter drives off, he flashes the peace sign and drives by a Route 66 sign.
