Saturday March 15th.

Beware The Ides of March. A day of rebellion and betrayal.
The word "Ides" got a really bad rap there!

Yesterday was spent filling out my schedule for the year. I have added Bead Fest Miami and several bead shops are scheduling me in September and October. I am also applying for the BABE show in November! More coming and more additions to the web site are on the way. I am also buried deep in getting ready for Portland’s Bead Expo. March 27-30. Keep looking for updates on my site!

Last night was an evening of theatre I saw a delightful production of To Kill a Mockingbird. A great American classic and one of the most beloved coming-of-age stories ever written, Harper Lee’s telling of life in rural Alabama during the Depression is filled with heartache and joy, conflict and conciliation. In To Kill A Mockingbird, Lee explores the last innocent summer of 2 children’s lives. Scout, a six-year-old tomboy, and her brother grow up quickly as their father, Atticus Finch, defends a black man accused of the rape of a poor white woman. The legal battle reveals the fires of prejudice burning through the South where black and white, rich and poor, young and old struggle to find common ground and survive.

Now, tonight holds a very different experience all together.
Tonight is Girls Tucson Roller Derby.
In a fierce contest of rolling wills and spills there will be two events!
Bout #1; The Copper Queens vs. The Furious Truckstop Waitresses.
Bout #2; Vice Squad vs. Iron Curtain
I am sure that it will be as entertaining as always.
