Pepsi is running a promotion and they are giving money to the ten ideas that get the most votes. The Cottage Grove Kids park is one of the ideas and is currently in 131st place. It only takes a minute to vote, especially once you're signed up, and you can vote every day through the end of July. If we finish in the top 10 we would get $25,000 for the park!

about my lack of posting, but I guess having a husband with half a Titanium heart, a crazy neighbor who is intent on turning our side yard into a self-styled Gaza Strip, the looming birth of my third child, several fireworks displays and a new puppy can give me some sort of pass. Especially since I was recently invited to join http://www.channel3000.com/ 's new community page featuring news and commentary from Monona / Cottage Grove area as a blog-correspondent (corresblogger? blogespondent? someone with too much time on my hands?)
I'm not sure of the agenda this week, although I know we will continue to discuss the organization of our third annual Monona Family Fall Festival scheduled to take place this September 26th at Winnequah Park. If anyone is interested in vending, performing or volunteering, please drop me a comment or email firstname.lastname@example.org. In other FARC news, I am very proud to see the banners that our committee picked out hanging on the Broadway corridor. They look wonderful and add a cohesive neighborish feel to the street. Thoughts?
There was a great article about my friend and neighbor, Jens Carstensen, in this Sunday's WSJ. He has a summer show at the Jura Silverman Gallery, 143 S. Washington St., Spring Green until September 15th. Full disclosure: I've never seen him prancing around in the buff, but he did give me his car.
Avery and the new puppy!
