The Wedding Singer at the Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – The Roxy Regional Theatre is currently staging their production of the smash hit musical The Wedding Singer which takes viewers on a flashback to the 1980s, complete with the big hair, corny clothes, and some amazing music.

In the show, we are back in 1985 with rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart (Josh Bernaski), New Jersey’s favorite wedding Singer. He is the life of every party, until his fiancée Linda (Sara Fetgatter) ditches him at the altar.  He is “Shot through the heart” to paraphrase Bon Jovi, after which in his grief Robbie makes every wedding he sings at as disastrous as his own.

Lesson #2 from the cat on the deck

 
Frank White

Frank White

Once the fur ball on the deck got fed, he set up camp.  He had a bowls of food and water on a small deck table.  He had a cushioned bed in the form of a deck bar-level stool.

With the food close by, the cat realized he had a kingdom.  His kingdom was a small corner of the deck.  But, it included all he needed.  He had food.  He had water.  He had a cushioned bed.  He was sheltered from the rain and other adverse weather.

I observed that his universe had quickly become an area of about a three-foot radius.  I never saw him move farther than the deck stool to the small deck table.  He didn’t even have to go as for as jumping down on the deck.  He could jump from stool to table and back again.  And, he frequently did.

NASA explains the fascination of Venus before it’s Transit of the Sun

 

Written by DC Agle
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – A Venus transit across the face of the sun is a relatively rare event — occurring in pairs with more than a century separating each pair. There have been all of 53 transits of Venus across the sun between 2000 B.C. and the last one in 2004.

On Wednesday, June 6th (Tuesday, June 5th from the Western Hemisphere), Earth gets another shot at it – and the last for a good long while.  But beyond this uniquely celestial oddity, why has Venus been an object worthy of ogling for hundreds of centuries?
