The Last Straw

Winter has come and gone, and I am excitedly anticipating the spring and summer buzz. Sunny mornings, gardening, swimming, barbeques and beers… Fan-fricking-tastic yo!

My Cordial Thanks

Life continues to be hectic (show #2 opens in five days) so today I thought I would simply share a gift idea that I used recently. Behind the glitz and jazz hands of a stage show lies hours and hours of tireless work from a dedicated team.
