Grease is the word - 07/21/14

Hope everyone had a nice weekend.  I spent part of mine at Chaffin's Dinner Theater where I saw "Grease" during its final weekend at the "barn." 

It was an excellent performance!

As I was leaving the theater, I talked with a woman who works there.  She told me that Chaffin's is up for sale and there's no guarantee it will remain a dinner theater once it is sold.

That would be sad.

Chaffin's Dinner Theater has been in business for 48 years.  And if other performances are like the one I saw Saturday night, it's been the home of some great actors and singers.

Here's hoping Chaffin's Dinner Theater stays in business for many years to come!

JAMAICA-MARIJUANA

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) -- Lots of folks associate Jamaica with pot. But the illegal weed is still illegal in the Caribbean nation. Now, things are changing a bit. The first legal marijuana seedling was planted in Jamaica yesterday. The symbolic planting on the University of the West Indies campus comes several days after drug reforms took effect.

WILD MUSHROOMS-OHIO

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) -- It's hunting season in Ohio -- wild mushroom hunting. As trees and flowers begin blossoming, some people have their eyes to the ground. They're looking for morel mushrooms. Walter Sturgeon is a board member for the Ohio Mushroom Society. He tells a local paper (Chillicothe Gazette) the mushrooms have a unique taste. The Morel Mushroom Festival will offer $1,000 in prize money to the mushroom lovers who collect the most morels over a four-day period.
