I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Mom's view: My Very Own British Invasion is a brand-new musical loosely based on Peter Noone, the lead singer of Herman's Hermits, story. The plot is not very original. It revolves around a love triangle, the classic bad boy versus the wholesome good boy both in love with  same girl. However, in this case, the good boy may not be able to save the girl. if she in fact wants to be saved at all. The show is a basically a showcase for a bunch old songs of the 50s and 60s introduced to American by such classic groups as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Herman's Hermits and more during the actual British Invasion of music. That is also it's strongest selling point. The acting is good especially that of  fresh faced newcomer, Jonny Amies in the lead role of the sweet and earnest, Peter. However, the story is just not all that interesting or original. The dancing and especially the singing are very enjoyable and it is worth seeing the show mostly for that.

And that's Mom's views.  Tune in tomorrow for this week's Sunday Scoop.
