VCC Christmas Show Teasers

This year The Christmas Show at the Vineyard will unwrap the nativity story on stage and screen. Six characters in six different art forms and styles that will work together to give you a fresh perspective on the nativity story. A mix of humor, drama, dance, original music and perhaps a couple streamer-launching cannons...turns out the Nativity Wise Men are a little miffed they were overlooked in the casting process this year...

Defying The Odds... Part 2

I really enjoy sociological research, but I don't like to read lengthy studies. Therefore, the studies yahoo posts on their front page are perfect for me.
So, a couple weeks ago I shared that the area I grew up in was the 3rd "Smokiest Area" in the country. Nearly 28% of the people in the area are current smokers, and the same area contains the nation's fattest city, the most dangerous stretch of interstate, and one of the highest cancer rates.
Keep in mind, I grew up in the Tri-State of Kentucky, West Virginia, and Ohio. Today, I read that after a study conducted to guage the overall happiness of our country, out of 50 states, Ohio was 47th, Kentucky 49th, and West Virginia 50th. Wow.
