I hope it gets some people out and about on the weekends and away from their tv sets:) there is always something going on around here and sometimes it amazes me, but some things I attend, there are so few people there and I am wonder where everyone is!

I thought it was ironic that you had that great post about Harriet Tubman and Booker T ran a talk on her Saturday. Good timing!
