As we begin writing this note to you, it’s 1:11pm and the calendar reads 11.1.11. This is the warm-up day for the big one 11.11.11. Feel the excitement! Where will you be on this monumental occasion? We’ll be driving in our van, probably at mile marker 111 on Hwy 11.
It’s been a crazy ride this year. We’ve already survived not 1, but 2 ‘Ends of the World.’ Now we’re tumbling headlong toward 2012 and all the problems those Mayans started by not planning ahead far enough. Gosh, I hope it’s not as bad as the Millennium crisis was when they forgot to include the 21st century in the computers. But, I guess we’ll muddle through somehow.
Our new book/CD, Chicken Joe Forgets Something Important is still doing great. Last month, we told you about the NAPPA (National Parenting Publications Awards) Gold Award. Right after that letter went out, we got word that the book had received more Gold!
This is in the 2011 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards (Book with Music). We went to NYC last month to showcase the release at Symphony Space.We also recorded a show on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio. The book/CD really is a lovely project. Even our Moms like it… and they can be tough critics! If you’d like to listen to it on the radio, you’re in luck. We were asked to guest host a radio show called The Hilltown Family Variety Show. You can tune in Saturday, Nov 5th to WXOJ 103.3 FM – Northampton, MA from 9-10 AM or listen to the podcast at HilltownFamilies.org. We talk, say intelligent things, play some of our songs, play some of our favorite songs from some of our friends, AND present the Chicken Joe story in the middle. Don’t miss it! Don’t forget something important!
Please check our calendar as some new dates have been added to our schedule. Among other places, we’ll be in Dallas, Houston, St. Louis, Chicago, Fayetteville AR, Wilmington DE, and Ocean City NJ. We hope you have a wonderful 11.11.11 (especially at 11:11 AM and even at 11:11 PM!!)
