March 20: Birds, Beers, Cooker John & News

Tonight: The Birds and the Beers
Time: 6:00 PM

You may have seen Sharon Stiteler, a.k.a., the Birdchick, on KARE 11. Tonight, you can see her in the pub. She’s hosting the monthly Birds & the Beers gathering.

Even if your interest in birding is only casual, even if you know little beyond the cardinal and the robin, spend a little time with this group. Great fun, great stories. Learn about or share locations for birding, technological wonders to use in the field, etc. It’s a casual group and it’s free. Get to know them!

COOKER JOHN

Later in the evening, Cooker John will provide the tunes. Cooker John plays finger-style and slide guitar, mixing folk, blues and originals that reflect a performing experience of over 40 years. Enjoy this opportunity to share a musical experience of unusual depth and expertise. Music starts around 9 PM.

NEWS FROM THE ISLES

* The reclusive British stage actor Paul Scofield, who won an Oscar for his role in A Man for All Seasons, has died.

* Charles Dickens’ novel A Tale of Two Cities opens with an imprisoned man being “recalled to life.” Well, David Beckham has been recalled to play for England in a friendly against France. If he plays, he’ll earn his 100th cap for the squad. Well done!

* Tardis House in Cornwall is for sale. This fine piece of real estate is located near Truro’s cathedral and can be acquired for just £19,950 on a 125-year lease. Oh! And it’s a former loo and offers 42 sq. ft. of space. That’s not a misprint. It’s perhaps the smallest office building–no joke, it’s a building, not a cubicle–in the UK.

* And English flags are repeatedly being stolen on the border of Scotland.
