Women's History Month: Batter up! Hear that call!

This weekend's Women's History Tidbits:
March 20, 1991: Supreme Court rules unanimously employers can't exclude women from jobs where exposure to toxic chemicals could potentially damage fetus.* 
March 21, 1943: Cornelia Ford, military pilot, died when another plane on the same air ferry mission clipped her plane's wing, crashing her plane.** 
March 22, 1893: Senda Berenson, the "Mother of Women's Basketball," organized and officiated at the first women's basketball game.***


I've been busy writing up a grant for work all weekend. OK, crunching numbers in Excel for the grant...but that means I was too busy with work to write here. Plus Senor Feminista & I went out for dinner & a movie with friends on Saturday.

In lieu of a real post, I bring you the one song in the world that makes me cry like a baby:


  • Batter up! Hear that call!
  • The time has come for one and all
  • To play ball.
Go to 5:38 of the video for the song! And bring me a tissue!

    I cry every time I watch that movie! Then again, I also cry in the Hallmark aisle of grocery stores, so it might just be me.

    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
