<quoted text>You're my type of a person. What type of a festival would you like to see. I have an inside that we may be getting a new president of the Art's Council. The present director is very nice, but new ideas are what are welcome right now. I have organized festivals for artists, craftspeople, and musicians which have given many young people, retired people, and unemployed people a way to represent what they can do. I have volunteered as of this week to work for free on organizing festivals, probably at the Civic Center, who also has new management and is looking for new things, too. It has been suggested that a Father's Day or Men's Show be organized sort of on the basis of the Women's Show at the Merchandise Mart in Charlotte, only for men. A Black History Month Celebration, A Fall Festival, Native American month show which would also be at a time to cover the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons and a Spring Show that would focus on outdoor things, home decorating, plants, and other arts and crafts that would intertwine. What is your input?
How about ALL of the above, except for a men's show; they already have the car show.(LOL)Just kidding, as long as it's at the CC, it's ok. LOL.

You mentioned being in NY. Up there, they have street festivals and/or block parties. The food, oh my, don't get me started. True I didn't care for everything, but I loved trying new things that are unattainable here,(though that's getting better) and just experiencing the different cultures is so enjoyable.

Years ago, Hickory had an International kind of thing at the fairgrounds. In addition to the different foods,(German, Italian, Greek, African, French, and even Scottish) they had their music, with dance performances on stage, in their native costumes. There was even a horse show. It was wonderful, and I vowed to go back every year, but to my knowledge, it's never been repeated. With the influx of different nationalities, it's getting so that this could be feasible here. I'd love to see something like that here. Best way I know to teach Geography to our kids/grandkids.

Everyone loves crafts and music. The live bands on the square during the summer are a welcomed change. Great to see people on the streets on Friday evenings.

Oh!(see how excited I'm getting? LOL) And, other than Cherokee, N.C,'s rich history of Native American life is being neglected imo. I would love to see a festival on the streets of Lenoir, or elsewhere, dedicated to educating all of us on that. Food, crafts, demonstrations of how things were done in early times, games that NA children played, are good.

I also love the idea of a Spring festival. I'm interested in home decor, etc. also. I do faux painting, and love seeing what others do in that area, via sample boards, pictures, etc. Whew! Aren't you sorry you asked?(LOL)

Great pictures! Who's the pretty, skinny, little brunette in several pics? She looks familiar, like one of the news casters on TV. How on earth did I miss that?

I'm not a know it all, though. I can't rebuild the motor of my car. I don't fly an airplane due to not having depth perception in my vision. Not all the plants I set out live or multiply. I can't always put my computer back together when I take it apart to fix something. I never get the laundry caught up so I just gave away half my stuff because I realized I don't need to have that much. Some of my craft designs sux so I tear them apart and do them over. For everything I've had to succeed, I've had something else to fail or fall apart. That's just life.
Thanks for being adult enough to explain in a rational way. Hope you get your laundry caught up and your green thumb heals. Have a good day.

I did learn a lot from these people and from most of the other events that I attended either as an organizer or a vendor. All types of people from different places making their living or sharing what they know with whoever is interested. Never saw many problems at the shows either. People seemed content. No jealous or competative like on some jobs I've seen. It's like everyone has their own thing and they do it. Pretty simple.
BBG, were you ever in the military or ever worked in law enforcement?

That's it!!! I couldn't think of her last name. All nice looking. I wish I'd known about it. Any thing happening with the Expo building?

wow - that post just oozes with all the class we know you possess. I know this is going to be hard to believe but some people don't drop the F-bomb every other word in normal conversation, and since you are on a public forum, would it be possible for you to be a little less offensive. I know it probably isn't possible, but it's worth a civilized try.

Why is this thread getting so many pages? Nobody cares if bbg goes away but the original poster, which obviously needs to form an army of alliances.

That you can't spell Groomed, or Roosevelt for one. It's kind of funny that someone who can barely type a sentence without errors (or profanity for that matter) is so self righteous and quick to point out piddly mistakes in everyone elses posts. In fact it's your errors that point out to everyone who you really are.

Hey Einstien, NEWSFLASH....this isn't a private chat room. When you post something on here, it becomes everyone's business... if you want me out of it, then grow up and have your redneck brawl in person where it belongs. And what is this the third grade? I mean "stupid nosella" honestly! I can almost see you sticking your herpes covered tongue out when you say it.

You are all so sad! You start a topic and then it changes to name calling.
No one ever finishes the subject. Are all of you children, teens, or what?
Talk like adults in your discussions, we all get more out of it.
I came to this site for useful knowledge, but leave with nothing but childish talk.
Why would you even post something like, should (who ever) leave.
The folks that edit the forum need to delete some of the things said before it's allowed to post.

This site wasn't meant to ruin folks lives, but it appears that some get enjoyment out of that. I am not saying don't post your feelings, I am saying use tact before you post some crazy off the wall rambelings. Be the bigger person!

gosh, that insult hurts so badly from someone who monopolizes every single thread by spewing your mispelled, mispoken rhetoric in your 8 different screen names (all of which, seem to be under the influence). Your writing makes you sound like you are nearly mentally retarded and rarely even makes sense. I'll continue to respond to whatever I wish to respond to regardless of the childish rants they draw from you. I read the threads I'm interested in, at least I'm not going from thread to thread obsessively following BBG/BBB because I can't fight the impulse to hear what they have to say. Now don't you have some furniture to go varnish or something.
