We love living in Dayton, Ohio... a close knit community that pulls together to help their poor, impoverished, down trodden and those suffering temporary crises. Lots of companies give not only during “the season of giving,” but year round.

Women start discussing hats- and this year the talk was kick-started early due to the Royal Wedding. Heck, I even know the difference between a downbrim and a Fascinator, something my grandmother would have been so proud of, if she were still here.
