Review: Jersey Boys at The Fabulous Fox Theatre

Oh what a night! This past Friday we had the experience to watch the  Tony-award winning show 'Jersey Boys'  at the Fox Theatre. 
JERSEY BOYS is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the story of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide - all before they were thirty.

Jersey Boys is a full-fledged, well-produced, amazing Broadway experience. The show is straight forward biography and is a must see even if you are not into Broadway musicals. The songs are played exactly as they sound in the original soundtracks. The audience goes wild, and as much as you try to hold it you always end up singing and dancing with the crowd. I swear. I'm still humming the songs in my head.... The show has a lot of profanity, but is …

Scoop on Poop Dished Out by New Exhibition at the Fernbank Museum

I POOP, YOU POOP, EVERYTHING POOPS
Poop is really fascinating stuff. Some people are not aware that poop can be used to build homes. You can also use it as firewood, or toss it around as a sport. Some wild animals eat it, others use it to send messages, while some squirt it over themselves to cool off. As part of evolution trees started growing fruits in order to trick animals into eating seeds which they spread around in their droppings. Poop had a very important role during World War II. It was used to hide explosives knowing that German tank drivers thought it was good luck to drive over them. 
The Scoop on Poop at the Fernbank Museum is a interactive, Science-Based Fun Delivers the #1 Exhibit about #2! Is a must see for the entire family. It's on view from May 26 through September 3, 2012.

Memorial Day: ‘And Always Remember, Freedom Isn’t Free’

There is no happiness without liberty and no freedom without courage...Thanksgiving is the day we pause to give thanks for the things we have. Memorial day is a day we pause to give thanks to the people who fought for the things we have... 
Memorial day is much more that having a day off to hang out with friends and family. This is a day were we show our patriotism and gratitude for the sacrifices that have been made for us. 
On Memorial day please turn the spotlight on our fallen heroes and the sacrifices they made for our country. Always remember that freedom isn't free, it never has been and it never will be. It has been paid with tears, blood, and incredible sacrifices for the last 200 years. 

May God eternally bless the American heroes who gave all. Happy Memorial Day, America. Never forget.

Through My Lens: Inside World of Coca-Cola and The Vault of The Secret Formula

The Bluebird of Happiness has landed on liquid happiness. This Mother's day I was invited by World of Coca-Cola to visit their newest attraction The Vault of The Secret Formula. The formula for Coca-Cola is the most closely guarded secret in the history of American commerce. For the first time in over 85 years, the 125 year old formula is guarded in a new location. The secret formula was moved from a bank vault in Atlanta to the World of Coca-Cola and hidden in plain sight, in a brand new exhibit, where visitors can experience the world's most recognized brand like never before. 
The below clip shows how the tour unfolds. Visitors step through a huge vault door and are transported into a tale about the mysterious trade secret in history. It's contains stories, games, and installations allowing participants to directly interact with the mysticism surrounding the legendary formula.



"The move of the Coca-Cola secret formula is a historic moment for the Company,"…
