One of the local radio stations, KRMS 1150 AM/93.5 Mike FM, sponsored the Art and Ambiance Fair this past weekend here at the Lake, so of course the station gave the Fair a lot of play. I was invited to talk on KRMS AM about my art and the Fair. That was a first for me and I had no idea how I sounded on the air. Terrie had sent the radio website address to friends and family and my sister in Oregon logged on and not only listened to the interview (aired on a local AM station), my nephew also recorded it. The next day I received an email with a file attached and I was able to listen to the interview. What an amazing technological age we live in! And our very first sale was to a nice lady who had listened to my interview and came to the show to see my items.
We were very pleased with the local Art and Ambiance Fair. We got acquainted with some of the other artists, wineries, and restaurants in the area, we visited with some old friends, and we made new friends who were visiting the Lake. Unfortunately the weather was nice all weekend so many Lake visitors were out on the water instead of inside at an art show, but that is their loss. There is a lot of talent and skill in this area.
Festival of the Little Hills in St. Charles is next weekend. This, too, was a fun show for us last year and we're looking forward to it. Let's just hope that Missouri weather lends itself to the event!
Hummingbird fact for today: The Ruby-throated hummingbird was first identified by Carl Linnaeus, the originator of the modern classification system, in 1758 from a specimen from South Carolina.
