Oregon Shakespeare Festival Play Reading “8”, 8/5/12


Oregon Shakespeare Festival Play Reading “8” by Dustin Lance Black

Sunday, August 5, 12 at 8:30 pm in the New Theatre

8” is based on court transcripts and interviews and chronicles the historic 2010 federal court case Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, which sought to overturn Proposition 8. The reading has renewed relevance in light of  the recent decision on February 7, 2012, when a federal appeals court overturned Proposition 8, ruling that Californians took away a right from a minority group without justification when they approved the 2008 ban on same-sex marriage. The reading is among those sponsored by American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) and Broadway Impact.

All tickets for this reading are $5.00 and will be donated to AFER. To order tickets, click the date of the play reading on calendar to the right or call 800–219-8161.

Cast lists for the readings will be posted when information is available.

Another Limerick from a Chanticleer Inn Guest


Gotta love Chanticleer Inn guests!

While taking a reservation, I glibly asked for a limerick about her little dachshunds, and here’s what I got:

There once were 2 dachshunds so naughty
One pretty and sweet, and one haughty
Come here said their master a little bit faster
but they couldn’t their legs were so shorty

Lucky me for creative, fun visitors to the Chanticleer Inn!

Baby Fawn at the door of the Chanticleer Inn


At the door!

Chanticleer Inn: a deer nursery!

It’s fawning time in Ashland.  A doe left a fawn at the front door — literally on the Chanticleer Inn B&B’s porch.

Mother deer will leave the fawns in order to browse and feed, and will later return to them.

Most of the time, the fawn is safely sequestered in tall grass or under a bush. Being so new fawns have no scent for predators to catch a whiff of, and the spots help camouflage the baby.  The deer in Ashland are so accustomed to humans, they leave them on sidewalks, in alleys, and now apparently at front doors.

The fawn is just left of the door in the corner.

Chanticleer Garden


Exclusively for the Chanticleer Garden…

Manure for the Chanticleer Garden

Only the best for the Chanticleer Garden!

The unending quest for the best ways to amend soil and feed plants in the Chanticleer garden has taken ‘au naturel’ organic to a new level.

Some friends bring a bottle of wine, some might bring flowers, but truly thoughtful friends consider what is most important to a hostess, those friends, of course, bring cow manure for the Chanticleer garden!

Exclusively for the Chanticleer garden, meticulously gathered, carefully packaged and labeled, and specially delivered from the lush green Roseburg, Oregon pastures. Just the thing to warm the cockles of a gardener’s heart!

“That’s No Bull!”

Oregon Wildflowers


Oregon Wildflowers Klamath Fawn Lilies

Oregon Wildflowers, Klamath Fawn Lilies

My favorite Oregon Wildflowers Hike at Grizzly Peak

First time I’ve been to Grizzly Peak this early in the year, only a few are starting to bloom: Trillium, Klamath Fawn Lilies, Fritillaria pudica, and Lomatium.

After the most recent late-spring snow melts, there will be more Oregon wildflowers to see! I can barely wait to get back to my favorite hiking trail.
