July 12 there will be a partial solar eclipse seen from Australia and parts of Europe and Asia. For the rest of us, Jupiter and Venus are visible, maybe the trained eye can spot them, they are prominent, amateurs like myself can upload a fascinating App called StarTracker and it will tell you the stars and the planets above in the sky. Just as a disclaimer, I do not know what else they track, read before you upload if that is a concern for you. I find myself starstruck by the App and its capability.

In Case You Missed it on July 4th Hedgerow Theatre celebrated the life of Janet Kelsey - "The Mother of Hedgerow Theatre". Janet passed away earlier this year, she would have been 95 years old on July 4th. I did not know her as intimately as the rest of the audience but she always treated me as a person of importance, not in I was any big deal but she listened, she engaged in a conversation, so many people do not, that was the special uniqueness I found in Janet Kelsey. Even if you did not know her well, you could not help but like her. She knew how to treat people, a valued teacher. I am so enriched by every brief conversation we have had. One of her friends mention that Janet said the fireworks were for her. I don't know about that but she was a firecracker with spark and an example of a strong and positive female role model.
