I hope everyone had a good weekend last weekend. Mine was nice and long. Then, Tuesday felt like New Years Day all over again. (stretching arms) To say the least, I feel like I am coming to you on this Wednesday as a new person. Fresh, and feeling like I just steped out of a four day spa.


Although this week does not have the theaputic films to escape from this big bad world, it does have a few other activities that I think you might be interested in. And… they are cheaper than the films.. they are… free!


So without further ado, I do invite you to see what there is to do that is fun, free, and fresh:
