"Truckin" Deadheads Celebrate Jerry Garcia's 70th Birthday

Elk Grove -- Mark Brock and his son, Tyler, celebrate Jerry Garcia's 70th birthday Aug.1st by viewing "The Grateful Dead Movie" in grand style at a local theater.

"Jerry Garcia was an amazing guy who went from one side of the track to the other with his music, lyrics and vocals," Mark comments, adding "He was phenomenal.  Happy Birthday, Jerry!"

Chris Ferris of Elk Grove also celebrates the birthday event because he's "a stay-at-home Dad enjoying a night out.  And I'm an Old Deadhead wishing Jerry a Happy 70th!"

Directed by Jerry Garcia, "The Grateful Dead Movie" is a monster jam session filmed at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom from Oct. 16-20, 1974.   Released in 1977, the "Dead" movie is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD and audio CD -- featuring the very best anthology of "Dead" music ever!

Canvas, Cocktails & Creativity with Artist Aimee Rebmann

Canvas, Cocktails & Creativity with Artist Aimee Rebmann

Fair Oaks -- When artist Aimee Rebmann's teaching career hit a bump, she invented a wonderful business called "Creative Juices Events" traveling around town teaching people how to paint... stuff. Aimee's budding artists meet at public places, restaurants and private home parties where we are instructed step-by-step how to paint on canvas blending acrylics (they dry quickly and wash out of clothing). During her professional teaching career, Aimee taught art to young students and explains basic painting from sketching the outline on our canvas, which brush to use, how to blend colors and layer paint. And she does this cheerfully because Aimee loves showing us how to create art. Many years ago, comedian Tom Dreesen told me he's a happy man because he made his avocation his vocation and life is good. Aimee Rebmann achieves the same result by teaching art to us all around town.
