f you’re single and the person you have a crush on is just standing there looking adorable, Monday’s the day to walk up to them and make something happen. Sure, it may be awkward, but the stars are aligned in your favor. Tuesday and Wednesday are not about your love life at all, although they might be about someone else’s: You’ll be arbitrating an argument between two people who have a lot of feelings for each other. Thursday and Friday return you to beds of flower petals, bathtubs full of citrus-scented bubbles and smooching. Saturday, a hot date is in order. Sunday’s nice and lazy. 6

Thinking Out LOUD

N

Hats Off to the Ladies of Great Britain

o, really. I’m serious. Please take off those hats! British fashion experts may call them “fascinators,” but my trusty online Urban Dictionary defines these “fascinators” as “a concoction of feathers, lace, and random dead birds,” and frankly, I have to agree. I mean, there I was, up at dawn and ready to savor all the pomp and circumstance of Will and Kate’s royal wedding, when the parade of hazardous hats began. In no time at all, my joyful anticipation turned to fear that the Duchess of Whatever might turn suddenly, skewering the eye of the poor soul seated beside her and causing others sporting equally menacing hats to turn suddenly, too, with similar results, thus ruining an otherwise glorious spectacle in…well…the blink of an eye. Thankfully, that did not happen — but there’s always a next time. And so, to England’s noble ladies, I say hats off! And do be careful where you put them.

Technically Challenged My dad borrowed my iPod touch the other day. When he asked how to switch it on, I told him to press the button then slide it across. He slid the iPod across the table top. JJK My uncle just decided to join Facebook, but has already forgotten what his login password was. So he actually called one of the IT technicians from the school that he used to work at to come over and help him change it because he wanted to make sure it was “done properly” in case it somehow managed to alter any of the other passwords he uses. Omar EB I was in Montreal for work, which is about 300 miles from my home town. When I was there, my mother sent me a text to “see if the message could make it that far”. She was very impressed that the message could travel that far. Roger M.

After 4 months, (they sent me an email once every week or so) I watched them type one to my parents, and saw my grandmother very carefully trying to press the bottom of the exclamation mark button. I asked why she did that and she said, ‘I’m trying to type a period, but you need to be very precise so you don’t press the line above it….’ And after explaining how to properly type a period, she claimed that her method would sometimes work too….

May 15, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Snips for Sarah. A cut-a-thon fundraiser for Sarah Esquivel. Sarah, a 7 year old Avon resident and daughter of Oscar and April Esquivel, was diagnosed last year with nephrogenic adenoma lesions in her bladder. According to her doctor, there are only a few known cases worldwide of children being diagnosed since 1950. Over the past year, Sarah has had to undergo multiple hospital visits, medical tests, and surgeries at great medical expense to her family. Sarah’s situation is more complex than most as the lesions are diffused throughout her bladder which will likely result in the removal of her bladder. Fortunately for Sarah the lesions are benign. Oscar and April have been the Coach and Manager of the Girls Avon Pegasus Travel Soccer Team over the past three years. They have given so much of their time to the development of the girls’ soccer skills while also providing them guidance on life long lessons regarding hard work, responsibility, respect, sportsmanship, and community. Oscar and April’s dedication to the girls and Pegasus Families is unmatched and we are showing our appreciation by raising money to assist with their medical bills. $50 for Wash, Cut and Blow Dry 100% of the proceeds to be donated to a fund set up to assist with Sarah’s medical bills. Complimentary Food and Beverages Silent and Tea Cup Auction. To Schedule an Appointment Contact The Hair Loft. Individual Donations can be sent to: Sarah Esquivel C/O Farmington Savings Bank PO Box 8, Farmington, CT 06034 Memo Line: For Deposit Only.

Technically Challenged My mom refuses to let me tell her about the “info” button on our Direct TV remote. So when she wants to know when a program ends, etc. she changes the channel up and back down again really quickly. Chelsey F My mother has had a computer for several years, and uses it quite regularly to type documents. I discovered recently that she has a single word document on which she has typed everything ever. She just scrolls down to the bottom every time she wants to write something new. The document is 223 pages long. Sam My dad refuses to write text messages because he says “the buttons are too small.” He will only use the pre-written text options. His response to every text is, “Thank You,” “I’m running a little late,” or, “See you later.” Mike 16

Anyone with an adult or child’s bicycle in working or repairable condition is encouraged to donate it to this great cause. We are also collecting working sewing machines. Over the last 20 years, Pedals for Progress has prevented over 130,000 bikes from entering our waste stream. Instead, families are living better lives because they have the simple mobility of a bicycle. The cost to collect, process, ship, rebuild, and distribute each bicycle is $40. A $10 minimum donation toward shipping costs is requested with each bike or sewing machine. All cash and material donations are fully tax deductible and a receipt will be available at the collection site. For more information call Jackie Johnson at 653-7758.

URGENT! Volunteer Dialysis Drivers Needed NOW!!! Canton residents who need dialysis are very fortunate to have volunteers who are able to drive them to and from their life-saving treatments. These people are dependent upon the good hearts of volunteers who drive once a week or more if they can. The rides are coordinated by Pat Swan, the Dialysis Transportation Volunteer Coordinator. Right now there is a critical need for drivers on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to transport an elderly woman from Canton to UCONN Medical. Please call Pat at 860-693-8619 if you can help. All mileage for drivers is considered a tax-deductible charitable contribution.

Canton Public Library is at 40 Dyer Avenue, Canton. For information: 860-693-5800 or www.cantonpubliclibrary.org May 19, noon Booked for Lunch with Author Ann Hood. Friends of the Simsbury Public Library are sponsoring their annual author luncheon! This popular event features a well-known author/speaker, a delicious lunch, in the gorgeous spring setting of the Hopmeadow Country Club. This year’s author will be Ann Hood. In 2002, author Ann Hood’s five year old daughter Grace died suddenly from strep. Three years later, Ann traveled with her husband and son to China to adopt a baby girl. As a writer and a “new” mom, Ann used her experiences to create her latest novel, The Red Thread. It is an insightful look into the adoption process, and the lives of the brave women who are forced to abandon their children in the hope of giving them a better life. The luncheon and talk will be held at the Hopmeadow Country Club on 85 Firetown Road in Simsbury. The cost is $25 per person. The public is welcome to attend! To reserve a seat, please call the Simsbury Library at (860) 658-7663, or get a printable reservation form from the web site at www.simsburylibrary.info. Please RSVP before May 11.

Calendar May 27, 6-11 p.m. All-Attorney Rock Band Headlines Tasty, Rockin’ Summer Kickoff to Benefit the Farmington Valley Arts Center. The Avon Senior Center becomes the Farmington Valley’s hottest venue for one night only, as the Street Vipers play the hot hits of the ‘60s through today in their first Farmington Valley appearance. Audiences rave about this (almost) all-attorney, nine-piece rock band, which plays just a handful of charitable engagements each year. Honored by the Hartford County Bar Association this month with a public service award for their charitable work, the Street Vipers have volunteered their talents to help sustain Avon’s Farmington Valley Arts Center (FVAC). Fire It Up!, a Tasty, Rockin’ Summer Kickoff on the Friday evening of Memorial Day weekend, is the FVAC’s largest fundraising event of the year. In addition to music and dancing, festivities include a BBQ dinner grilled on-site by The Meat House and a silent auction of unique items donated by artists and area businesses. There will be a cash bar. Reservations may be made by calling 860-678-1867 or printing and mailing the reservation form online at www.artsfvac.org. An early bird rate of $50 per person is available through May 9. Tickets reserved after May 9 are $65. Each ticket includes a $25 tax-deductible charitable donation to the FVAC, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides arts-related programs and opportunities for thousands in the region each year. The Avon Senior Center is located at 635 West Avon Road (Route 167) in Avon, Connecticut. For additional information, visit www. artsfvac.org or call 860-678-1867.
