Grand Rapids Premieres Feature Length Film “Urbanized”, At Wealthy Theatre

I love architecture!  Recently I sold a number of paintings that were done by architect Frank Lloyd Wright's last apprentice on eBay, his name was Robert Green.  I purchased a number of Robert's paintings from his son Matthew.  I think his paintings were so wonderful because there was just something so  different about them.  Maybe being an architect, that happened to be lucky enough to study under one of the most highly acclaimed architects of all time, may have helped Robert to look at things a bit differently.  I imagine that this feature length documentary will examine all of the aspects of building and how it affects our cities, neighborhoods, landscapes and nature itself.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Here’s What’s Happening Around Town

What does Memorial Day Weekend mean to you?  Over the years it has become an occasion, for many,  as a weekend to remember.  Many people visit the graves of their deceased relatives, whether they had served in the military or not.   Red, white and blue flags wave over the grave stones and flowers sometimes decorate the grave markers.  It has also become a long weekend devoted to bargain shopping, family gatherings, barbecues, fireworks, and trips to the beach. (Grand Haven and the Lakeshore is usually PACKED on Memorial Day weekend, if the weather in nice.)

Go Fly A Kite! At The Great Lakes Kite Festival In Grand Haven

Talked to Josh Depenbrok this morning from grNow and he mentioned the Great Lakes Kite Festival.   It took me back to my days in Detroit.  I couldn't wait for the springtime when the wind would start kicking up and I would head over to the church parking lot where there weren't too many overhead wires and I would run as fast as I could to get my kite in the air.  I would make it dip and soar.  I think kids who even spend a lot of time behind a computer screen or in front of the television flying a virtual kite might even enjoy this.

Join The “Lego Family Block Party” Inside The Grand Rapids Plainfield Township Library

When I was growing up, traditionally, Lego's were always given to boys.  Never mind the fact that girls may like to build things too.  Thank goodness, those stereotypes are no longer in play.  What kid doesn't enjoy playing with those multicolored, interlocking bricks, building houses, and skyscrapers, and cars, and well, just about anything your mind can imagine
