It's really a drag
5:19 pm cdt
It’s amazing how a simple black and
white poster created such a reaction, and not in the manner you might assume. While walking into a local coffee shop, I saw
an 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper promoting an upcoming Drag Show.
Regardless of whether you approve of the poster’s topic or not, the purpose of this blog is
to point out an interesting observation: our community is healthy and growing.
Did you know cities which are considered tolerant and diverse are more affluent and prosperous than
those that aren’t? According to urban studies theorist and economist Richard Florida, regions emphasizing a creatively
and culturally diverse economy attract a more talented and skilled workforce. This, in turn, attracts more businesses to relocate
and expand. His research found that these cities “are likely to attract greater numbers of talented and creative people---the
sort of people who power innovation and growth.”
This Show represents that Hays is changing…and without change, you can’t have growth. Without growth,
things die or waste away. This is good news for me, because I want to call Hays “Home” for many years to come!

For my husband, the first day of spring officially begins with the opening day of baseball.

I, however, celebrated
the Vernal Equinox in another manner; a manner I believe will become my new tradition to welcome in the warm weather season.
Today, I got my first professional pedicure and it was WONDERFUL! Thanks to Casey Staab at "All The Rage Studies,"
I now have two tiny daisies adorning my "phestive phalanges."
Bring on the sandals!
