I want to recommend a new book “Bouncing Back” by Linda Graham, my friend and dear guest at the Chanticleer Inn!
Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being offers new tools and techniques to help us recover our innate capacities to meet life’s challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters, with calm, clarity, flexibility and courage.
Bouncing Back shows readers how to harness the neuroplasticity of their own brains to strengthen the structures of the brain they need to “bounce back” and not only get through hard times but thrive in their midst.
The neuroscience is accessible; the exercises are powerful — a worth while read for all.
My friends Janet and Art want to get the word about the movie “42”. So in their words here’s the scoop …
Hi Friends, We hope you can make this event (see below). It’s a benefit screening of the new movie “42” about Jackie Robinson at the Varsity Theater on Monday April 15th at 6pm. “42” stars Harrison Ford as Dodger’s General Manager Branch Rickey, the MLB executive who first signed Jackie Robinson, played by Chadwick Boseman. The film is written and directed by Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland. There will also be a raffle of Brooklyn Dodgers memorabilia and speakers including John Cypher of Hill Street Blues and, of course, popcorn (can’t watch a movie about baseball without it!). Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling 541-488-7716. Proceeds will support Havurah Shir Hadash’s “Burn the Mortgage” capital campaign. Please come see a great film and support the Havurah all at the same time. You Brooklyn Dodger fans especially won’t want to miss it!
Stay at a Bed and Breakfast Ashland Oregon, hike the hills and marvel at the spring flowers
The early spring flowers are blooming on the valley floor. They look so delicate and sweet. In reality they are hardy perennials.
Picture here is Purple-eyed Grass. At the Chanticleer Inn Bed and Breakfast in Ashland Oregon, the related Blue-eyed Grass is abound in the south facing flower beds.
How can one resist all the Richard III car park jokes?
My friend and Shakespeare scholar Mike Jensen finds them … I just share them.
This one I related to. I am so glad for the remote key fob, I am forever locating my car via the remote beep.
To commemorate the plaza redesign for Ashland Oregon, the City is throwing a champagne party at 5:00pm on the (you guessed it) the plaza. The party will coincide with April’s First Friday Art Walk, during which the city will also bury the 100-year Time Capsule.
Artist Sue Springer’s ceramic frieze will have been installed as the latest Ashland Oregon public art piece. She is also known for the Peace Wall installed in front of Ashland, Oregon’s library.
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!
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.
Travel Video and Blog of Chanticleer Inn in Ashland Oregon Bed and Breakfast
Travel bloggers, Chris and Tawny produced a video of their stay at the Chanticleer Inn in Ashland Oregon bed and breakfast. View the video here.
I truly enjoyed hosting Chris (aka the Captain) and Tawny. For more of their trip in Ashland, check out their blog! Chances are we’ll see more of them and their work as they are planning to return to Southern Oregon later this year.
Well, this is a Chanticleer Inn first. I have never shared a guest book entry, but I’ve never had a guest pen a limerick either.
