I’ve always said that HeidiTown was not a calendar of events,  but rather stuff the Mayor likes. Unfortunately, it’s starting to look a lot like a calendar, especially this weekly post. I’m going to shake things up. After this week, I am no longer going to give radio listeners a

Greeley Blues Jam 2011 Island Grove Regional Park

Oklahoma cartwheel candlelight

It’s time for another dinner theater review and this time I went back to Candlelight Dinner Playhouse  in Johnstown, Colorado for “Oklahoma!” I’ve been going to theater since I was just a little girl, but I had never seen a production of this famous play until last week.

I grew up visiting museums, and I really love them, so I’m not completely unbiased when it comes to writing about museums.
