Whippersnap Music & Arts Festival 2013 | Preview

By the fireside glow of the happy hippie house I heard of the legend of the Whippersnap Music and Arts Festival.  It is a family friendly event of the new paradigm.  I have heard of the mobile stage that visits the campsites as a parade for the kids that maybe can’t play well with others or for kids that prefer the shade of their own campsites and their iPods rather than communing together at the main stage.  I’ve heard of a miraculous place where grandmas, mommas, babies and party kidz alike were together in a fabulou

Why I Love Writing for Grateful Web

There is a geek inside me that prefers Times New Roman, 12 point font.  If I could do anything professionally, I would be writing all day, every day.  I wish to write well and to write often.  This got me thinking about why I love writing for Grateful Web. By trade, I am a server, a lowly waitress.  I once waited the table of a local musician and although I was probably too busy to engage in conversation, he is a really talented bass player. I couldn’t help it.  I lollygagged about and eventually it came out.

2012 Shoe Fest | Manteno, IL | Review & Photos

The time of year has come where that childhood anxiety of change and new adventures both excites and frights us to the bone. Mother Nature tells us that it’s time to progress. After Labor Day we all start to feel it. This is the time when some of us head back to school, and this is the time when some of us start packing away our wonderful toys of summer.  We say goodbye to our wonderful wilderness festival dance companions. The end of summer draws near. Festavarians, especially us in the Midwest, know that our times together are going in a new direction.

Hoxeyville's 10th Anniversary | Review & Photos

I must admit, it was a definite benefit to be in the Mitten beneath the starlit skies of the 10th anniversary of Hoxeyville 2012.  Michigan people have manners that transmit an infinite welcome.  Their wit submitted to my ultimate delight as I attended my first ever Hoxeyville Music Festival.  Ten years of Hoxeyvillians got together over the August 16 – 19th weekend and threw an exquisite party to celebrate the beauty of a tight knit family in the Northe

10th Annual Hoxeyville Music Festival Preview

Fresh water and blue skies await me this weekend at the 10th annual Hoxeyville Music Festival.  Life has been rough for me the past few weeks.  I’m gonna pack my rain gear, a few hoodies, my golf bag, and for this special weekend, I am actually going to skip the sandals and bring some real shoes.

Work sucks. Bill collectors are calling.  I’m ready for an escape.
