Earth Day

April 22- is Earth Day!

Don't squeeze the Charmin and don't read the books, either

 
A friend of mine snapped this picture yesterday at a local antiques co-op.  The shelf behind the hand-written sign was lined with well-worn children's books of no particular value.  At first, my friend thought the seller must be an incredible book snob to post such a notice. Then he had another thought, that the books might contain material some might find offensive.  If I'd been there, I would have asked the seller directly.  Other theories?

Seventy-six Trombones for Opening Day

Eastman Professor John Marcellus will lead 76+ Trombones on the field at the Rochester Red Wings Opening Day baseball event at Frontier Field on Saturday, April 11.
 
If you go, you'll see 76+ trombonists from the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester, Ithaca College, and Penn State University. Others in the parade will include Rochester drummers John Beck, Michael Burritt, David Mancini of the Doc Severinsen Orchestra, and Rich Thompson from the Count Basie Band.
 
They'll march from Main and State to Frontier Field and be joined by Rochester Mayor Robert J. Duffy at 12:30 p.m., at Frontier Field. Then they'll play a few numbers to draw attention to the Rochester Literacy Movement. You're invited to show up with new or gently used books to donate to the city’s youth. All family-friendly books are welcomed, including recent books on tape or CD and ethnically-rich and diverse books, too.
 
Fun+
