Ringling Brothers Closes The Circus

Image
Ringling Bros. and Barnum Bailey Circus has been a household name for almost 50 years and now that is coming to an end. Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey Circus has been called "The Greatest Show On Earth" will hold their last show on May 21,2107 in Uniondale, NY. Feld Enterprises CEO, Kenneth Feld announced that the circus has seen declining ticket sales for several years and following their decision to remove the elephants from the show, further decline has occurred. He stated that rising production costs and declining ticket sales has made the show an unprofitable show.

The circus was not a part of my childhood as my mother simply could not afford to take us. As an adult, I have been to the circus quite a few times and I must say that it is one of the most magical shows that I could ever imagine. Whether it be Ringling Bros. or a smaller scale circus, it is simply magical. I hope to take my grand doll each year to see a show. The animals, the performers, the lights and musi…

Weather Alert - Weekly Report and Other Tidbits

To all my Blogger friends here, I must first say how very sorry I am that I have not been here much and that my reading is so far behind, but I will visit your pages and I will read the words that you have written. My life has been crazy to say the least for the last week. More on that later and now onto the important things in life.

It makes travel nearly impossible and it can cause power outages and other issues as trees and power lines become heavy from the weight of the ice. As I have been watching reports talking of this storm, I just pray that everyone uses common sense and stays in. It is nice that it is happening on a weekend as there won…
Happy New Year! My wish for each of you this year is for plenty of good health and happiness. May God Bless Each of you in the New Year!

2016 took many celebrities and family and friends and I am ready for a new year to begin. My hope for my family is that we all prosper and are healthy in 2017. I plan to enjoy life more and to do many things on my bucket list as it might be called. Spending time teaching my grand is the most important thing that I can do and we spend many hours a week together doing that. For a 19 month old, she is very smart, I think!

My youngest daughter turned 20 years old this past week and so I now do not have any more teens around but I know that the grand will be soon enough. Why do they grow so fast? My other two are 26 and that seems nearly impossible. My step son and my daughter are only 3 months apart and so most of the time they were growing up, it was like having twins. They are very different personalities and my step son is more like me and my daughte…
