So true in fact, that the actual year that it began remains in question, because in talking to the most senior members of the department, the dance was around before they were there! Originally an annual winter fundraiser for the members, spouses, family, friends, and any of the public...

I think I may give up on Entourage.
I've watched HBO's hit show, now in its sixth season, since the beginning. Entourage is not that bad of a show, it just is not that good. Each week, the premise of the show seems so good, and then 25 minutes later it ends disappointing. It's like you were expecting an A on a paper, and end up with a B-minus. So, why don't I just stop watching it? Because next week's is supposed to be so good! Mark Titus of the Club Trillion blog once wrote, "If wives and husbands gave each other as many chances as I've given Entourage, there'd never be divorce." I know how he feels.
They meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:30 p.m. at Porter County Aging & Community Services (1005 Campbell Street, Valparaiso). There are no costs associated with joining them and all levels of Bridge players are welcome. Anyone interested should please call Sara Nelson, (219) 241-2237.
