Interesting Tidbits

Here are a few things to consider on Saturday.

Blogger Bill Santos of Columbia Compass invited friends to join him for last night's Lakefront showing of "Frozen". It is clear that he has more friends than I had imagined. The Lakefront was packed. The MC/Projectionist said it was the largest crowd in forty years. It's good to have friends.

I might add that all his friends are enthusiastic singers.

Thursday's CA Board meeting revealed some interesting changes. The new president of CA is sitting at the table--smack dab in the middle of the table, next to the Chair. The first time I saw Phil Nelson at a Board meeting he was relegated to a little table to the side, rather like a child in a time-out chair. He eventually made it to the actual table, but somewhere in the periphery. I am intrigued to see how this central location for Mr. Matthews plays out.

Another interesting change: reporter Amanda Yeager gave us an article with facts, quotes, and numbers. Awesome.

This Thursday evening there will be a reception for the Columbia Archives exhibit "James Rouse at Leisure."

The exhibit opened on July 1 and will run through September at the Archives. A reception on July 17 at 7 p.m. will be an opportunity to visit after hours and enjoy a program highlighted by a Rouse family member recalling vacations and get-togethers. The reception will also feature some additional artifacts that will not be on display as part of the exhibit. (Columbia Archives)

I have been to several events at the archives and always enjoy the experience. It's not simply about fascinating documents, photographs, and artifacts, it's also about the interesting people you meet and get a chance to talk to. You should try to drop in Thursday if you have a chance.

I'm looking forward to another cup of coffee and a relatively slow day--what about you?
