Upcoming Article in Lansing Community Newspapers!

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

Chris Wardell of Lansing Community Newspapers interviewed me via email yesterday, for an article regarding The Fabulous Heftones (and in particular our 8-9pm New Year’s Eve show at Lansing’s El Azteco basement, now called the Aztec Room). He says “The story will run in the Towne Courier for sure, possibly some other papers.”

The Fabulous HeftonesI am not sure what the publication dates are. I think his deadline was Wednesday. It will surely be printed before Sunday, though, since that is the date we perform.

I will be on the lookout for the paper, though it mostly focuses on the East Lansing, Haslett and Okemos (Meridian Township) area and I am in the City of Lansing. Do keep your eye out for the article if you are in town. The Towne Courier does not have a web presence at all, so I won’t be able to share a link to it from this blog.

I’m pretty excited. I just found the email address for performance announcements at these papers, the week of Thanksgiving. I got an email thank you from the editor on Thanksgiving day, believe it or not. And already they are doing an article. I feel very supported. By the way, I grew up in the area that the Towne Courier covers so it is a little like being welcomed home. Way cool.

If you are interested in the show or The Aztec Room as a venue, you can check out the location’s MySpace page by clicking here.

Recipe: Diana’s Sunshine Orange Shortbread

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

Diana has been cooking all things sunny lately, in celebration of the sun’s return. Golden beets rather than red, yellow bell peppers, chard in yellow and gold… and citrus.

She posted a recipe for Sunshine Orange Shortbread on her blog yesterday. I know how much you like recipes. Diana is an artist in the kitchen, I can assure you that these cookies will be delicious.

Tracy a Three-Time Winner!

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

Tracy (who test-knit my Button, Button, Who’s Got the Hat? pattern last year and I swear also tested my tea cozy the year before but I can’t find the documents to prove it to myself) is my first winner. She took the LynnH SockTour and found three embedded links (in descriptive text paragraphs) to pages/sites that do not exist anymore, including one of mine. Big oops!

Tracy, therefore, has won three patterns of her choice. That’s a great way to prepare for the mighty month of January, Tracy! I have always declared January to be “Selfish-Knitting Month.” We set our own needs aside for the month of December and sometimes before that, to knit for others. Or so it seems many of us do…

So January is Selfish-Knitting Month and Tracy gets to choose three patterns from which she can knit her projects for *herself.* Or not, her choice.

In any case, thanks for starting off the contest so quickly and thoroughly, Tracy.
