Frank's Weekend Faves, Feb. 18, 2018

With its annual observances of black history, romance and presidential birthdays, February seems like the perfect month to raise one's voice — not in anger, but in song.

And I can't think of a better celebration of just such an activity than this weekend's 12th annual All Out A Cappella Concert at the Unity High School auditorium in Tolono.

Letter from Birdland: An Art adventure in the Windy City

In Birdland, this morning bloomed bright, clear and cold. When I went out to the coop this morning, I could only find five of the eight pullets. (I bought them as pullets, but I'm pretty sure one of them is a cockerel. Sometimes that happens.)
