Spell This!

04.11.11

Fancy yourself a gifted speller? Well, here’s your chance to test your spelling skills (publicly no less) and possibly raise $1,000 for your favorite charity.

My two eldest sons and I will be entering the $1,000 National Adult Spelling Bee Sunday at 2 p.m. in Long Beach in the hopes to come home with $1,000 for Jack and Milly, the two students in Kenya that I’m helping put through college in Nairobi.

I won Spelling Bees in elementary school, so why not? And you can compete against me too.

The entry fee costs $30, or $40 at the door. As long as you’re at least 16-years-old, you’re in. The winner will receive $500, and heir favorite nonprofit organization, school, or church will receive $500. For entry form, words to study, etc. check online at www.AdultSpellingBee.com.

At Bay Shore Church at 5100 E. Toledo in Long Beach.  See you then!

Off to Canada!

Have you heard that John Wayne Airport will start offering daily non-stop flights to Canada? Beginning May 2, WestJet, Canada’s leading discount airline, will fly from Orange County to Vancouver, British Columbia, and on June 13 to Calgary, Alberta.

This means you can take advantage of easy vacation experiences to Canada. And to find out more about Travel Alberta’s beautiful vacation packages, you can join Alberta’s heli-yoga instructor Kristen Stuart and YogaWorks Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a virtual heli-yoga experience at the Irvine Spectrum Center.

The event, open to the public, will virtually transport participants to an alpine meadow in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and one lucky attendee will win a heli-yoga vacation package to Alberta  and a one month pass to YogaWorks.

The first 200 people will receive free t-shirts, water bottles and totes. And the first 75 will receive a free yoga mat.

Near the Giant Wheel at the Irvine Spectrum Center at 71 Fortune Drive in Irvine.

Peter, Bjorn and John in OC

04.06.11

Peter, Bjorn and John, one of Greer's favorite bands, is headed to the Detroit Bar in June.

The three-piece, which has appeared at international festival and graced Southern California with its presence at Coachella in years past, will perform at the "comfortable Silverlake-meets-OC style setting with a reputation for top-notch, progressive musical programming" on June 4 - a far cry from the hot tents and dust-filled fields of Indio.

Performances by the Swedish indie rock band include guitars, harmonica, keyboards and haunting vocals that you can't help but learn the words and sing along to (you may know them best for the whistle in "Young Folks").

The show, almost guaranteed to sell out, is only $20 per ticket and you must be 21 or over to attend.
