Shakespeare in the Vineyard

Ooh, it was fun. We had beautiful outdoor event weather on Saturday night. We brought a picnic with us: French baguette, spicy cheese spread, sausage, grapes, cookies and milkduds, with water and sparkling water. And we bought a bottle of wine at the vineyard. Critter dropped us off and picked us up. The amphitheatre has cement block walls to its tiers, and roomy flat expanses between levels, so there was plenty of room for picnic blankets and lawn chairs. The performance was by the Actors Guild of Lexington. I haven't read the play before, so I'm sure that much of the niceties of it were lost on me. But, I was pleased to be able to understand the meanings, if not the subtleties, of all the scenes. It's been some time since I've been in Shakespeare-listening mode. ;)

After the show was over, Flar said he thought it was a very nice choice for date night.

Next month, it's Flar's turn to figure out date night.

Mom's iPhone

Mom loves her iPhone, so far. I love that she's on the same carrier as I am, so our calls to each are now free. She had a little trouble getting her email setup right, so she spent the afternoon in the Apple Store. They helped with email quickly, but then she needed to charge her phone. They offered to charge it there, so she watched a couple of iPhone workshops, and listened in on a Macbook one-on-one while she was there. She enjoyed spending the afternoon "being waited on by all those cute young men." They apparently brought her drinks and made sure she was comfy and stuff. Oh, and she told me that she probably learned stuff from watching the workshops.

She's really tickled about not having to stand in line Friday to buy the phone. She says they had 18 people tasked just on selling the iPhones. No wonder they were able to sell so many in such a short amount of time.

Quest at the Movies

Quest at the Movies

A new series has started at Quest. Last weekend, we watched clips from The End of the Stick, and listened to Billy Fray tell us about The Great Commission.

Next week, Sharon Clements will be telling us her spiritual insights from the Pixar movie Cars.

Other movies in the series will be The Guardian and Rocky Balboa. I think there might be one or two more, but I can't remember which.

It's a fun time to come to Quest - there's fresh popcorn for each service, and lots of film clips. Let me know if you want to join us, or if you want a ride.
