Here are some selected events in the BG, KY area.

Today, like many days, I am dreaming of Spring and Summer too. I hope to plant some sunflowers this year. How about you?

I'm also thinking of my fellow citizens in the path of what could be a BAD winter storm. The next few days will be "interesting" (and hopefully not disastrous!) for people on the East Coast. I hope everyone stays safe and warm through what could be a BIG storm.

I will be watching the news too.

Art Matters! (I agree...) 
Last week, I took a tour of Teresa Christmas' Art Matters studio and gallery. It was so fun. There was so much artistic energy there! I hope to go back and take some photos sometime.

You can see their website here: Art Matters and they also have a Facebook page here: Art Matters' Facebook page. Call today if you want to go to the event coming up to 781-0361.
