And My Heart Grew Three Sizes…

My love for Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield continues to grow. They were recently at a restaurant in NYC when they spotted paparazzi outside. Instead of reacting negatively to their presence, the couple turned it into an opportunity to promote not for profits close to their hearts. 

The notes in the picture below say,  “Good morning! We were eating and saw a group of guys with cameras outside. And so we thought, let’s try this again. We don’t need the attention, but these wonderful organizations do: www.youthmentoring.orgwww.autismspeaks.org, (and don’t forget:) www.wwo.orgwww.gildasclubnyc.org. Here’s to the stuff that matters. Have a good day!”

We’re in for a show!

 Tonight could be one of the most fantastic meteor showers we’ve ever had the opportunity to witness.So much show that they coined a new term for it – meteor storm. 

The show is expected to start at about 10:30 p.m. Friday. This show will peak from 2 to 4 a.m. Saturday and go all the way through dawn until the sunrise washes them out.

And the great news is the weather should be perfect for star gazing, 

But if  you’re stuck inside, NASA will have a live chat and live video of the meteor shower here. 

Columbus Lands on Indiana’s Best List

The Movoto Real Estate Blog compiled a list of the 10 Best Places in Indiana and I doubt it’s a shock to anyone that Columbus made the list. Columbus-Indiana-bridge(Photo credit columbusinproperties.com)

 

1. City of Carmel
2. Town of Fishers
3. Town of Zionsville
4. City of Noblesville
5. City of Jasper
6. City of Westfield
7. City of Columbus
8. Town of Munster
9. City of Greenwood
9. City of Crown Point

 

Coming in at #7 here’s what the blog had to say about our fine city:

 

Columbus knows how to flaunt its style. Besides having some truly amazing architecture, this city has lots to keep its 44,061 residents entertained.

Locals can enjoy ice skating at the Hamilton Center Ice Arena or enjoy one of the many lovely parks during sunnier months. People who want something fun and interesting to watch can drop in on a roller derby tournament at Skateland or take in a cricket match at Ceraland Park.

Just by the numbers, Columbus still looked like a really great place to live. The employment rate was high and the commute time low, which means workers can comfortably get to their jobs. The air quality was the best on our list, which makes this city a real breath of fresh air, and the average summer temperature is 73 degrees. If you like to be active, working, and enjoy some more eclectic pastimes, Columbus might just be the right city for you.

 

They chose some interesting things to highlight. Things you don’t normally hear about when Columbus makes these sorts of lists. Nice to spread the love a little, dontcha think? I often tell people who were born and raised here that they have no idea what a gem we have. As a Columbus transplant I’m always in awe of the offerings in Columbus. It’s really a fantastic city.
