In between the showers we spent a couple of hours on Wednesday exploring the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens.

We had seen a show on PBS about the glass artist Hans Godo Frabel a few weeks ago when we discovered he has an exhibit currently at Lewis Ginter.

The exhibit comprises of many of his blown glass pieces of balls, clowns, long fellows, flowers, lizards, masks, and frogs displayed all around the estate in an exhibit called “Glorious Glass in the Garden.”

The exhibit runs through January 10, 2011 and well worth a visit.

VMFA Presents “Some Like It Hot”

Posted in Film with tags , on August 11, 2010 by kozmicdogz

Critic-at-large, H. Hobart Cornell (pictured below in photo by Jeffrey Allison) muses about Billy Wilder’s 1959 film “Some Like It Hot” on the VMFA blog.

Follow two hapless musicians who change their identities — to put it mildly — while on the lam from mob bootleggers in 1929 wintery Chicago who end up in sunny Miami playing with an all-girl band.

Whether it is your first time or the twentieth, this one never runs out of steam.

Some Like It Hot will deliver the wit, cleverness, and belly laughs you so richly deserve.

As a part of the new Friday Film Series at the Virginia Museum “Some Like It Hot” will be playing this Friday, August 13th at 6:30pm. Often called one of America’s funniest films of all time, “Some Like It Hot” stars, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis.

Traveling north on Route 17 this weekend we saw two biplanes flying about.

This was near the famed Flying Circus Aerodrome & Airshow in Bealeton, VA just off Route 17.

Quite a site to see!

Check out their old-school web site! A true trip into the past!

Yes, it has been hot.

Confirmed – the RTD has confirmed that June and July 2010 have been the hottest on record.  Records have been kept since the late 1800s, or over 110 years. Whew!

Loversville – The Style Interview

Posted in Music with tags on August 2, 2010 by kozmicdogz

The interview in Style Magazine by Mike Rutz was finally been posted on line this past Friday. Cassandra Cossitt and David Stover discuss their new song, “Independent Woman.”

Cossitt: The lyrics are about a woman who finds herself in a bar at closing time. She may seem like an independent woman, but at that time, she’s feeling rather like a damsel in distress.

Looking forward to our next visit to Loversville!
