Vanishing of the Bees @ Science Museum

Posted in Environment, Film with tags , , on March 31, 2011 by kozmicdogz

The Science Museum of Virginia ~ March 31 ~ 2:00pm & 6:30pm ~ SOLD OUT!

 

David Stover, local bee wrangler, is helping bring this screening of “Vanishing of the Bees” to Richmond. From an article in Style Magazine by Melissa Scott Sinclair:

Bees like living in the city, as far as Stover can tell — maybe even more than the country. For one thing, the varied yards, gardens and pots mean “there’s much more diversity in what bees can forage on,” he says. And the neighbors don’t mind. “Unless you’re messing with them, they don’t mess with you,” notes Helen Whitehead, who keeps the tidy garden next door.

Loversville @ Ellwoods – Saturday 6-8pm

Posted in Music with tags on March 25, 2011 by kozmicdogz

My last visit to Loversville - it's been a while.

It has been a long while, but it is time to take that long trip to Loversville. Gas up the car and find that map. It’s a hard place to find, but worth the effort.

You can go too, just show up at Ellwood’s Cafe this Saturday at 6pm and you can join me in that journey.

Elizabeth Taylor RIP

Taking a Spring Break of our own we went to the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Gardens and lunched at the Metropolitain which is surrounded by the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden. The photo above is of a piece by Roxy Paine.

Very beautiful,

There is never enough time.

Last Saturday we were listening to WCVE and I was expecting to hear Page Wilson on at 8:00. When his show did not come on, I thought  something was wrong. Virginia musician, Page Wilson passed away Tuesday at his home in Mechanicsville, VA.

There have been lots of tributes to Page, here are a few:

An American Family in Japan

Posted in Environment with tags , , on March 15, 2011 by kozmicdogz

I found this blog on a page from wordpress.com with newly published blog entries. “Hey from Japan – Notes on Moving” is a blog about an American family just having moved to Japan and their impressions and discoveries in a new land and culture.

Unfortunately on March 11th, Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes in recorded history now being measured at 9.0, then the terrifyingly destructive tsunami, and now nuclear meltdowns. This is one American family’s story.
