A few topics to be considered at the end of Spring:

  • Downtown Revitalization The Columbus Commons – How fast growing cities are redeveloping urban areas with green spaces, new businesses and new jobs, while entertaining families. It’s genius!
  •  Spring and Summer Non-Alcoholic Punch Drinks – Some of these even contain fruit teas and one uses a coffee-ice cream punch. These are different, great for the whole family, but can be kicked up with alcohol for adults if desired. Very versatile. It’s been in the 90s F in Ohio during the last week of May, despite the deluge of rain storms. These beverages are not expensive to make, and just in time to break the heat spell.
  •  How the Retail Marketing Calendar Swallowed Patriotic Holidays – Patriotic holidays were ripe for co-opting for retail sales promotions way back in 1840, when one woman made up a Thanksgiving Story that people ate without chewing –they inhaled it like a drug. In the 21st C, all our patriotic holidays are but stepping stones to Christmas Shopping, but plenty of Americans still honour our armed services people.      
  • Series Capstone: Aboriginal Peoples In Canada – Many more bands of First Nations peoples are receiving recognition since the suceess of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. Big changes are occuring in recording the histories of these peoples.
