Happy July Friends!  I hope that you all had a wonderful 4th of July.  I can hardly believe that we are in a new month.  July is always a busy month for my family.  It is a busy birthday month and of course there are lots of fun things to do.  I hope that you and your family will get out and have some fun.  If there is an event that you would like me to add to my calendar, please leave a comment.

Twelfth Night, written by none other than Wild Bill (Shakespeare, that is), tells the balled up story of two twins, Sebastian and his sister Viola, who are separated in a shipwreck. Viola is saved but, thinking her brother has gone up the flume, disguises herself as a young buck, Cesario, in order to get a job with Duke Orsino. The Duke is a hopeless romantic in love with Lady Olivia, but she gives him the mitten.  Meanwhile Viola, disguised as Cesario, is smitten with the Duke!  Confused yet? Well, just you wait until Lady Olivia falls for "Cesario" and let the shenanigans begin!
