Soil: It's Not Just Dirt

How could I NOT select this event? The smell of dirt in April is like smelling espresso each morning, I feel hope and excitement, not just for a day but the whole growing season! Professor Schulz has an aura of genuine happiness, patience and intelligence that I cannot resist. I hope to see you there!

One Man Two Guvnors - Kim's Pick
KIM'S PICK: One Man, Two Guvnors

I am so excited to see One Man, Two Guvnors! As you may have picked up from the spelling, it is a British comedy, funny like Benny Hill. Francis finds himself with two jobs as a valet and his bosses (guvnors) don't know about the other. Insanity and hillarity in huge doses! I'll be the one with the big LOL in the audience.

JOHN J'S PICK: Sing Street - from the Foreign film Series
