Here are a few things we will need
1. 1 8x10 current photo
2. A half page bio
3. Any pictures that you may have for a slide show from the Elementary years. (Please, I prefer you to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. That way they don’t get lost.)
4. Recommend others who have attended Midvale that would be a positive influence on the students currently attending. Please email me any information that could be helpful.
Thank you for you time and look forward to seeing you on April 20

Dear Hale Patrons
The fence or railing on the front row is part of the set and is not there for your personal use. Please stop hanging your canes and coats on it; please stop putting your program and beverages on it. I doubt that Tevye had a clear plastic cup with a straw in his day. Yes I am talking specifically to the 4 people who were on the front row last Tuesday night.
Dear C. J., S.M., T.M., and R.C.
I miss seeing you daily while working on a summer play.
Dear Lady Who Takes Her Dog Everywhere
I am very glad that you love your dog so much; it is nice that you have something in your life that you love. However, I submit to you that your dog will be just fine at home while you go to work. I also think that your dog will be just fine at home while you run to the store.
I saw your show this week, bravo!! Finest dream sequence I have seen in all my years. Well done.
For future reference and so you are not confused about this: People as a general rule will never pull an April Fool’s joke where the punch line involves telling you another coworker’s husband has died. So you are aware, when you assume it is a joke, it makes you look heartless and socially inept. Welcome to the human race where when we hear that someone has passed away, even if we hear about it on April 1, we react with concern for the wellbeing of others. p.s. when a coworker’s spouse has died, we all pitch in to do his or her work, regardless of how we feel about them personally… it is just what we do as human beings.
Dear Cast of Glee
I adore you, you complete me, I want you back in my life.
I love the new iPad … or at least the idea of it … I want to go to there. But I will wait, because I bet you are going to come out with a version with more memory and drop the price in about a year. That seems to be how you operate.
Dear Travel Agent
I sure wish I had my info on the cruise I am taking in 24 days. I do not think that is asking too much.
Dear The 4 Greatest Nieces and Nephew Ever
You are adorable and I love you dearly. You all looked really cute in your Easter outfits. Thanks forever for the kisses and hugs. And LilBud, never stop wearing tutus just for fun!
Dear Greek Chorus
Dear Text Friend
I love you, but please stop texting me early every holiday to wish me a happy holiday. I like to sleep in especially on these days.
Dear Wellness Program
I am having a blast!
Sorry I missed feeding you for about week. Glad you did not die or pretend to die. I saw that movie and know that all drains lead to the ocean.
Dear PLA Essays
You will not win, I shall conquer you!

Well yesterday I was actually pleased with the 'funny' of Google. Taking the vowels out of the Gmail; turning online books into 3D (which is of course all the rage right now) and changing their name to Topeka, to name a few. Funny. I was chatting with Brother online and he was calling it Ktalk (TopeKa talk instead of Gchat) and I used the word reflexive... then wondered if it was really a word. Brother says "Let's Topeka it!" Mwa Haa!! It made me snort!
