|Good Friday Morning, |
Here's the weather for this weekend:
As you can see, Today and tomorrow may be glorious days and if I hear that you spent it in the house I'm going to bring down a ton of Jewish guilt on you... and that's a promise. I'm dialing my mother right now...
So, what to do? Garden! Turn the soil this weekend and lay in some of that compost you've been making since last winter and if you're adventurous, you can get some peas and radishes in and start eating from that plot in as little as 28 days.

8 p.m. at the Melrose School, Federal Road, Brewster, NY. Also, March 27 and April 3-4. This is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty authoress who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. When the authoress decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp.
