Well , that's the events for this week! Do you want to try and have your event listed on this blog? Just email me the info and I just might put it up. Remember that I try and post stuff with a few days of lead time so if it's less than 14 days out you might not want to send it to me,  not that I absolutely will not use events that are only a few days away! Just look at this weeks postings! But there's a better chance I'll post the event if I think people will have enough time to plan to get there and buy tickets etc. 

Here's a short poem:

Labor Intensive
By "Laughing" Larry Berger

No rest for the weary
but at least we have the concept of 
There are very few holidays
that do not invoke religion
In a country that was built on a separation between 
Church and State you might think there would be more

But now Politics is getting preachy
and  those in it are telling us we have to pay for our "sins"
of high debt and no real leadership from them

as if 9% unemployment were somehow the fault of the "Average American" 


Sorry folks ! That came out a little longer than I thought it would!
