I), lighting by Donald Holder, sound by Scott Lehrer and casting by Telsey + Company/Abbie
Brady-Dalton, CSA. The King and I features choreography by Christopher Gattelli based on the

One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, The King and I boasts a score that features
such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance,” “I
Have Dreamed” and “Something Wonderful.” Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story
of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam
and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher, whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic
world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

PostHeaderIcon WHAT TO CONSIDER FOR THE PERFECT ROAD TRIP VEHICLE

*Sponsored Post*

TAKING A ROAD TRIP, OH MY! In 2013, my family of 3 became a family of 6, interesting human beings, (7 if you count the dog). This required a little more brain power on my part. My Mom and brothers live 500 miles away so taking a road trip several times a year is pretty common for this crazy bunch. We have also taken an amazing road trip to Washington D.C., in the summer of 2016, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan last summer.

Most people have a vehicle that holds 5 people because the average family size is only 4. Naturally, Patrick had one of those vehicles. Luckily for us, I have a Jeep Commander that seats 7 people. So, woohoo, I have the Mom vehicle, which is okay because I love my Jeep. Patrick has a Jeep Cherokee which is completely out for traveling unless it is just the 2 of us (like that ever happens) or for whatever reason, all of the children aren’t traveling with us.

PostHeaderIcon 6th Annual Truck Driver Appreciation Week

Image9How often do you think, “I wonder where this came from?”, when you are at the grocery store, sitting on your furniture.. what about the materials used to build your house? I bet your answer was never. Don’t feel bad, you are among the millions of others that never think a truck driver supplied it.

All too often, truck drivers are not thought of or appreciated. Most of the population doesn’t even understand the importance of this job and what these men and women sacrifice for US. The only “easy” thing about being a truck driver is physically driving the truck. Even that isn’t easy at times. Imagine how you feel trying to navigate the roads in the rain and snow… now add roughly 70,000 pounds to it. Doesn’t sound fun, does it? Most truck drivers I know love the open road. What they don’t like is 4-wheelers. That would be you, in your car or SUV.

Before I met one of my good friends, I had a lot of misconceptions about trucking and truckers. I bet you think they just get in the truck and go. That’s just so difficult right? Wrong… Before every driver can even head down the road, they have a multitude of things that they Semi Truckneed to do first. What do you do when you get to work? Punch the clock and begin. Not these men and women!  They have to know EXACTLY what the weight of their load is, what the tractor/trailer weighs, what to do if they are overweight, can they legally drive to a scale to even find out if they are legal weight. Yes, shippers do screw up and it’s on the driver! Which I personally think is garbage but, I digress. That’s not even all of it. They have to know if they have enough time left to deliver the load on time, take a shower, eat, do routine maintenance,  do I have the permits that I need, pre-trip inspections, bridges or tunnels on the route… *deep breath* I really could go on and on but, I think you get the idea.
