Adults Are Creative Too!

99 Ways to Cut, Sew, Trim & Tie Your T-Shirt into Something Special

Remember when you were a child, how much fun it was to have a whole sheet of blank paper in front of you and a box of crayons within reach?  No limits at all on your creativity!  Maybe you drew imaginary creatures or maybe you tried to capture the essence of a familiar face or scene, though of course at the time you didn't think too much about how creative you were being.  Do you ever miss that?

Animal Friends Visit the Library

Mobile Dairy ClassroomChildren of all ages enjoyed visits from Molly the Cow and a colorful array of snakes last Tuesday, July 20, in back-to-back Summer Reading Programs at Baldwin Boettcher. Robert Koonce, of Southwest Dairy Farmers’ Mobile Dairy Classroom, and Thomas Davis, also known as the Snakeman, accompanied the animals and presented these informative and fun programs.

At 10 AM, right in front of the library, Mr. Koonce talked about dairy farming and, with Molly’s help, demonstrated milking techniques. Children lined up to pet Molly and to get a closer look at one of the working animals we depend on for nutritious food.

Mad Men Count Down

Madison AvenueOnly a few more days and perhaps we will know something of the future of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and the cast of characters linked to the fledgling ad agency formed in the last episode of Mad Men, Season Three. No question where I and many others will be this Sunday evening at 9 PM. But whether you’re waiting on your hold for Season One, Two, or Three, or you’re one of the first Maddicts from the Summer 2007 premiere of this Emmy-winning AMC drama, you might enjoy slipping into the aura of the era with these late ‘50s—early ‘60s movies with a Manhattan setting. How well do these movies tell the real story of Madison Avenue? Of New York? Or of America 50 years ago?
