We appreciate the coverage of the First Little Free Library in North Beach, our Little Yellow Barn! Our Little Library has had quite a few customers, especially children!
    I got a chuckle that my daughter Tiffany was credited in the photo as being me. Told her she looks more like me every day!

Re: Like Moths to a Flame: Turn on a light to observe National Moth Week; July 28, 2016; www.bayweekly.com/node/34080

I loved the article Like Moths to a Flame in the July 28 Bay Weekly.
    About one week later my daughter, Maggi, had a large luna moth fly onto her pant leg on our front porch late one evening. Then, it landed on the side of the porch. Two days later, a wild-looking Pandora sphinx was spotted by Maggi in the same location. She got these great pictures that I hope you will enjoy as much as we did.

Re: The Secret Treasure: How some of the world’s most famous art found safe refuge in early-America’s Annapolis; August 18, 2016; www.bayweekly.com/node/34432

I hadn’t been to Riversdale in ages, so I went and was very much gratified to see the great restorations — and the old masters. Received a comprehensive tour too. Well worth the $5. Recommended!

Bay Weekly’s Labor Day parade of working people

Summer is swell. During its short stay, we imagine a vista of fun, sun and long vacations. The reality is a little different, with heat, humidity and the necessity of working for a living.

How a monthly get-together grew into an arts festival drawing thousands

I love a good mystery, and I was staring at one on West Street in Annapolis on the first Sunday of August as I enjoyed the First Sunday Arts Festival. Not my first time, but the first in at least a year — and something was different. What was it? Larger, more interesting, more vibrant, more alive? Had the Festival changed, or had I?

Millennial musicians break bigger

The capital city music scene is thriving. Over the last decade, the downtown bar scene and plentiful local venues have bred musicians now flourishing on a larger scale. Reggae rockers Joey Harkum — whose band Pasa­dena honors his home town — and Brandon Hardesty — who inspired Bumpin Uglies — went from strumming on the docks and breaking into open mikes to selling out local venues and touring coast to coast....
