Grand Union started as the Jones Brothers Tea Company in 1872. By the 1930s it was one of the largest grocery chains in the United States.[ The name “Grand Union” was inspired by the desire to “unite shoppers with low prices in a ‘Grand Union of Value'” as described by company associate Elvin Sanders. Each aisle was named after a state, with Wisconsin representing the dairy aisle, Nebraska representing the corn aisle, and New York representing bagels, smoked salmon, and other Jewish foods. The store’s mascot was Abraham Lincoln wearing a deli apron, and most stores featured a costumed Lincoln to accomplish deeds, talk to customers, and proclaim the general splendor of the Grand Union, and to urge them to “Save the Union” when the company faced economic hardship. The company also operated “Grand Way” stores in Florida starting in 1960. These stores were similar to today’s super-centers as they combined a discount department store with a grocery store all under one roof. The grocery stores were later separated from the discount stores and sold to Winn-Dixie/Kwik-Chek.Wikipedia

With only six more performances, this is a show you must not miss. John Kelly is an art/performance genius.

“Transformation through spiritual osmosis … magnificent.” — The New York Times

In Paved Paradise Redux: The Art of Joni Mitchell, John Kelly’s vocal and dramatic skills make for an interpretation that is at once haunting and hilarious, and will gratify even the most hardened “Joni-phile.” The arrangements (performed in the original key) combined with Kelly’s spot-on vocal acrobatics provide an experience that is both original and uncanny. – ABRON ARTS CENTER

The robin in the Lahn Street driveway (in front of the house in which I used to live) is screaming at the sky “Hey you big loud bird, pipe it down!”  Now I remember why I fled at seventeen as soon as I could support myself. I wonder if the booming decibels of the overhead jets contributed to my tinnitus?

“Unfortunately, the malicious and outrageous arguments and language used in the Justice Department’s brief [are] only serving to inflame and malign the humanity of same-sex couples and our families,” said Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action Fund, according to the Los Angeles Times.
