Kids still play outside! They do in my neighborhood and I love to listen to them while I work. I especially like to hear adult voices. Children need supervision!
Floyd Fest is a great celebration of life !
The event began in 2002, and spans four days each year with on-site camping and multiple stages featuring rock, bluegrass, reggae, folk, Yiddish, Cajun, and world music performers!
In addition to music, the festival features local arts and crafts, dance workshops, morning yoga lessons, story telling, poetry readings, and a Children’s Universe tent.
Here is a promo for the Floyd Fest website! Be sure to check it out for more info on the artists that will be performing! FLOYD FEST
At FloydFest, we believe in the WHOLE SUM Festival experience- which is what makes our event more than just a music festival- it’s a total vacation package. Our beautiful Appalachian Mountain venue lends itself to breaking away between sets for a hike, bike ride, even a nearby float trip.
Our Children’s Universe features performances, workshops, play equipment, and basically enough FUN STUFF to keep the kids entertained (and educated!) for four entire days.
The Healing Arts area offers ‘hands-on’ healing ranging from traditional massage to the more nuanced alternatives, as well as morning yoga classes and other natural refreshers.
The Teen Scene provides a space and outlet for our ‘rising adults’ to both get space and make healthy connections, and our Workshops and Panels are educational, informative and engaging platforms for the exchange of information and ideas.
We are still fighting the ants with little success. I put out the glucose drops that contains poison and they just seem to party down! They looked sluggish the other day but now they are back to perfect circles around the stuff.
Maybe they are playing cards.
Until today the small species stayed clear of the large ones but I guess they either called a truce or they are good friends now. Both types are everywhere in the kitchen and bathroom.
I’m sure a manufacturer will come up with another fool proof method for getting rid of them. We are the fools that prove the pesticide works for a while and then the ants become immune to it!
In the 1970’s The Clyde Irwin High School was built just outside Asheville, North Carolina. What was left of the Old County Home Graveyard was dug up to make room for the school. The remains from the Potter’s Field were moved across the street and buried under wooden crosses. The spirits must not have liked the move as there are strange goings on since the transfer. Janitors that work the night shift at the school refuse to relate the strange incidents they witness!
Unmarked graves are said to still be beneath the Potters Field overlooking the School.
We continue to battle the big black ants and the small ones. I guess they don’t like each other because the big black ones stay on the slips of paper in one part of the the counter and the small ones are in another section. I guess they are worried about fist fights.
Anyway, when we first put out the slips of paper with the poison they all sat around in a perfect circle, laughing and shooting the breeze. Now there aren’t any perfect circles – just partial arcs and I have seen some ants look like they are about to fall of the paper on the ledges. Could it be they are drunk with all that glucose and can’t find their way back to the nest?
Still, I don’t see them waltzing through the shelves and getting into the food supply so I can’t really complain that much, but I like writing about them!
