Happy Samhain!

It's the new year for us tree-hugging goddess worshipers! So I wish you all a happy Samhain and a wicked Halloween.

But it also means that it is the end of the month and the last day for the DonorsChoose Bloggers Challenge.

While this blog did raise $165 (I'll donate over the weekend to bring us to a round $200...more if the hubby gets that job he interviewed for!) it was from two donors who are BFFs of mine. Thus this was a big FAIL. But don't think that this will be the last time I fundraise here readers! Oh, no...I already have one brewing for December. :D But if you want to leave me a small Samhain gift in the form of $5 for DonorsChoose, I still have thank you gifts available!

I'm attending the Chicago Foundation for Women's luncheon today, so hopefully I'll have some good stories to tell. I'm wishing you lots of your favorite candy today!

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
