FRIDAY! Break out the party hats and noise makers! What to do this weekend? How about a trip to Battle Creek? There is an amazing Renaissance Faire going on, all this month. It's called SilverLeaf, and it is a lot of fun. There is shade to get out of the sun, shows to amuse and [...]
Another meltingly hot Thursday. Approximately 90 days until it snows, give or take a week or so. Many cooling stations have opened around Michigan in an effort to beat the heat. Check here for one in your area. I imagine the water parks are loving this weather. Maybe I'll see you on the beach this weekend!
Ah, the summer festival season is well in hand. Small towns all across the state are doing something to celebrate their uniqueness. It's fun, it's a headache… it's summer. There are two rather big ones going on this week, for those of us who are musically Image via Wikipedia inclined. Lansing has Common Ground and Chesaning is [...]

Good Morning! It's Friday, so I thought I'd take a break from the endless circular political posturing and read about something personal and positive. Anyone familiar with Julie Bass from Oak Park? This time last year you probably hadn't, unless she is a personal friend or relative. Currently she is rocking her community and catching [...]

It's summer in Michigan. About 6 months ago, it sure didn't feel like these hot days would ever come. Fortunately for the flowers, they have! Today I'll be found in my garden, caring for the delicate blossoms and tender greens. Tomorrow will probably be devoted to the veggies. How is your farm patch doing?
One of my favorite places to detox will always be Port Huron, right on the grass along the river. I make the trek whenever I can, for sights like this. My daughter snapped these while we lounged on the grass, both of us with our own book. It's been several years ago now, and I [...]
