I'm heading out to Phili for a workshop at the end of May so I'm going to be busy - probably won't be able to make the whole weekend but I sure miss everyone (especially our most gracious hosts!!!) and will figure out a way to make it for at least one day/night. Thanks so much (and I've been voting for CVNP ALMOST every day =)
Click HERE to vote for (and send a little $ to) Cuyahoga Valley National Park - which has been so good to our group!

Do make the next event. Your friend Andrew Moore’s photo exhibit “Detroit Disassembled” runs June 5 - Oct 10 at the Akron Art Museum.
Something very delicious will be eaten in your honor and absence.

Thanks for the reminder about the CVNP $5,000 grant. For those not aware of it, here is earlier text. Please help fund the place we enjoy.
The second place park is beginning to catch up. Unless we vote and vote every day (I know, such a bother, but it is a free $5K).
Here is the earlier post and the details.
"We have the opportunity to give something back without it costing us a dime. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park has a chance to win a $5,000 grant if they can get more votes than four other parks. Our photo hikes plus all the other people who use the park could gain from this. Dolly and I would be grateful if you read the following and hit the vote button often. We have also asked the same of our Hiking Hounds group. Every vote can pay.
John & Dolly Powers"
CUYAHOGA VALLEY NATIONAL PARK ASSOCIATION
NEEDS YOUR HELP!
No money, just one vote a day
CVNPA is a candidate for a $5,000 grant from Tourism Cares, which has created an initiative called Save Our Sites, a grant opportunity specifically focused on national parks.
We are in competition with four other national parks for this grant. Our grant
will support scholarships for students who otherwise could not afford to attend our nationally renowned Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center. Please help us win this $5,000 competition! Help area school children experience Cuyahoga Valley National Park!
Here's what you need to do: between now and May 14, 2010 vote ONCE A DAY, every day. It's a fast and easy way to help CVNPA fund our great environmental education programs.
The park with the most votes by May 15 wins! Ask your friends to help too!
Got the dates on the calendar. Will be there for as much as possible. Thanks for doing this again.
I'm going out to the Michael and Paula Vision & Technique workshop - after which my buddy Richard and I are going to spend a couple of days in and around Centralia, PA.
I have only one request - I've yet to make it to Jeff's Ice Cream Central - can someone show me the way? I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Warning if you are a heavy meat eater, Paula cooks vegetarian and I hear very well. If you need meat, better get a burger on the way.
As to the ice cream, now that we know Jeff is not attending, but still reading, I think we should plan some ice cream outings in his memory. Dolly mentioned that the new place we have found has some 25 flavors. I don’t suppose you would want to try them all in one day, (did you read that Jeff?) but we could go back.
John, I am going to try to get up there finally. I'll keep you posted as the dates draw nearer.

I'm missing out on seeing everyone, and new ice cream to boot! Now I'm really sad!
