Quotes

"The Lancaster City Council is very excited about this year's event season," added Mayor Parris. "Each year, City staff works incredibly hard to ensure our community has the most fun, greatest adventure and best entertainment possible. They strive to put together bigger and better events and showcases all year-round. 100 Days of Fun is no exception, and is sure to bring big smiles, great energy and good times to our community."
Let me tell you this. So a dad walks up to me after a recital. And he says, "I didn't know what to do. I was losing my son. He was going with the wrong crowd. And then Harmony Project showed up. For the last three years he's been playing with a Harmony Project orchestra. He's a smiling, responsible kid." Tears filled that dad's eyes, and he said, "Thank you for my son."
...Thomas Hardy Three friends recommended this one, so it jumped to the top of the list. As Karen Swallow Prior adds, "Hardy applies the ancient rules of classical tragedy to a modern world which, bereft of faith and hope, turns futilely to love."
...his soap comeback, Moore is gearing up for yet another character-driven season on “Criminal Minds,” and he was just in Toronto promoting his film " The Bounce Back ,” which he produced, starred in and co-wrote. HuffPost Canada TV caught up with the actor to discuss his hiatus from daytime, why he had to rewrite his "Y&R" dialogue, and why he might not be an eternal bachelor for much longer."
