Look at this guy!

This is Scott L. Schwartz.
If you ever get into trouble, you'll want him on your side.

This guy means business.
And his business is playing big and bad.
Big may come easy, because he's 6'10" and weighs about 300 pounds.
I'm not sure how he pulls off the bad part though, because he actually seems to be very...

Well, never mind. Just click on the banner and get ready for some action.



Once upon a time there was a man with a gentle voice and quiet charm. He made several movies and worked in a TV show playing a character who rode a motorcycle from town to town, touching lives, and singing a little here and there. Then some of us didn't hear much of him for awhile.
We wondered if he would ever come to sing for us again.

Michael Parks is singing, and he recorded 17 songs for us to enjoy, including:

I'll Never Be Free
Basin Street Blues
Don't Go To Strangers
Easy Street

This CD was a long time
coming, but it was
worth waiting for.

Take a trip to
Listen Recordings
where you can order your copy.

Joan Garnand
creates from her home in Tennessee.
Her design styles range from simple elegance to whimsical fun. Joan does hand-painted stationery, uses spare moments at festivals to paint faces, and entertains children at private parties.
A sample of her work is illustrated online.
Talk to her about what you're looking for!

William Malmskog Ever since William Malmskog and I began a dialogue I've been impressed by his willingness to share openly the details of his life. Most of us hide a lot of our lives from others and present only the parts we can polish and make look acceptable. He isn't afraid to talk about how his difficulties, including physical challenges, have guided him to an increased sense of abilities and possibilities.

I have a special place in my heart for people who allow themselves to be vulnerable enough to show us their pain. But this isn't about being a victim. It's about using adversity as a stepping stone to new challenges and then helping the rest of us do the same. When he sends me welcome updates of what he's been doing I know he's going to bring me something I can bite into and use in my own daily challenges. Please take time to visit his web site and explore the man who calls himself the Crazy Viking.

A Little Browsing...
The Hotel Hershey in Hershey, Pennsylvania will offer chocolate special events to its guests all during the month of February. For a partial schedule, see Chocolate-Covered February. Among the fun offered are chef demonstrations, a chocolate dessert buffet and chocolate afternoon tea. Some events include child guests and some do not. You must also make reservations for most events at 717-534-8800. If you've been planning a trip to Hershey anyway, this is a great opportunity to enjoy some chocolate-centric fun.

One of a million non-tourist attractions: The Tiled Steps on Moraga Street in San Francisco.

The reputation of cigarettes has certainly changed. A pack of smokes was once considered an elite presidential gift.
If you love to sing you'll be pleased to know that there are quite a few choruses and chorales doing auditions this time of year, in preparation for spring concerts. For instance, those in the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut area cam find an online listing of auditions. If you live in another geographical location you can find listings on Craigslist, in local papers and even in postings at churches, colleges or other public places. Talk to music teachers or do searches at local web sites. Or find a discussion at Google Groups. Quite a few choral groups also invite singers without a formal audition, so keep looking around if you love music but shudder at the thought of being competitive about it.
