OK,that's the pertinent stuff. Davis, Central Park, 6-8pm. $10 donation, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. There will be hot dogs and veggies dogs, and Soroptomists will be selling beverage, including wine.

And most important things:
1. Great and important charity, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease);
2. Performers include Duval Speck and OUR SARAH COHEN!!

Yes, Shakespeare Sarah will be doing her gig. So, for those of you not heading up Fri night to Tahoe, head out to Central Park, and watch Master Shakespeare's cast of characters pop out of Sarah's head.

Yep, Valhalla will attempt to do with a cast of...hundreds...Sarah will attempt to do by herself!!

See the ALS Benefit Facebook page for further information.

Have my reservation for Stebbins Cold Canyon Watercolors and the Outdoors Sunday 26 April.

Yay, and no cost.

And yay, found my watercolor travel box this past weekend.

Joys of BBC Radio: old comedy radio plays. From 1997 "Old Harry's Game" with screamingly wicked funny comic Andy Hamilton. Smart comedy set in Hell: Satan (Hamilton) up against a recent arrival genial skeptic of a professor (who's only sin is that he was an atheist).

Today's show: "Satan conducts interviews for a new assistant. In the running are Scumspawn and a dolphin."

I need to buy this from BBC.

Is anyone from Davis area driving to AC early enough for the lessons at 8pm(?). And no--I'm just going to *try* the lesson, I'm not going to dance with the big kids at 9pm.

Mainly want to see who's a true pentathalete.

And if you are going, can you drop me off in Suisun or Fairfield on the way home.

Here's what's up. I hope to take the train tomorrow. If I get a lift from Davis, I would need to be dropped off in Suisun on the way home, to get my car from the train station.

Or, I could get picked up from my home on the North side of Fairfield.
Or, in Suisun at the train station. (I get to Suisun about 6.30, home by about 6:45 or so.)

Just asking.

Planet gazing at dusk.
Either here, Davis, or in between.

This is going to require a coat, and hot tea. Fog? Oy.
Well, per weather.com, around sunset should avoid the later fog.

Happy Pi Day to [livejournal.com profile] barnabas_truman.

I checked NPR for ways to celebrate...and found to my distress that they are holding Pi Day at the Exploratorium from 1 to 3pm today! And I'm over here!

Pi Parade gathers at 1.30, and rumbles forward at 2pm.

And for those of you in Second Life, yep, they've got a spot for you!
Well, there's always Science Friday on NPR....and people who know their pi...one of them up to 50 digits.

Oh, and Happy Birthday Albert. Don't know why Google didn't say so, but Happy Birthday. Which Google refuses to translate unless you input happy and birthday separately. Gl├╝cklich Geburtstag!!
