Kilmarnock Wine Festival, Boring Times

We decided to take a small trip over to the Kilmarnock Wine Festival today, June 27th, 2009. It was truly a very boring event. Hardly anyone there on either the vendor side or the customer side. If you were not aware of this event, there was no loss in that. We've seen several events held in Kilmarnock and let's say this one was right up there with the rest. Kilmarnock is a pretty area, but their events are not worth the time of day.

Historic St Luke's Church, English Chamber Organ

We have created another slide show. This one is about an incredible English Chamber Organ from the 17th century. This particular piece is housed at the Historic St Luke's Church in Smithfield, Virginia. This organ still works but has less than 100 plays left to it. It takes 3 people to play this piece. Historic St Luke's is trying to raise about $64,000.00 for the restoration and replication of this organ. We are asking those of you who can afford to make contributions to the fund to please do so. To learn more about the English chamber organ and where to send your much needed donations please CLICK HERE for the link.

If you send a donation to them and send us a copy of the receipt showing proof of the donation, we will send you a full size picture file of the organ that you can use to print out or take to a photo lab and have a picture printed to a size up to 16 by 20 inch prints. We maintain the copyright to the work, but we are allowing this with a proven donation to Historic St Luke's church. Thank you.

7th Virginia Regiment, Pictures From May 30th Event

Here are a number of pictures from the May 30th event of the 7th Virginia Regiment while they were at the Historic Court House Circle. If you missed them while they were here in Gloucester, there is another opportunity to catch them on the 4th of July in Yorktown. They will be spending the day there doing their live encampment interpretations for everyone. They do a fantastic job, so be sure to take some time and to meet them.
