Welcome to the weekend! It looks like it’s certainly going to be hot – just into the triple digits – but not that unbearably hot like last weekend. No, no thank you!
Just a few fun facts:
Sunrise is currently right around 6 AM – 6:01, 6:02 and 6:03 AM on Sunday.
Sunset is currently just after 8 PM – 8:09, 8:08 and 8:07 PM on Sunday.
Remember that our days are getting shorter, and it’s just about a minute difference in the morning and another minute in the night. Cool pattern.
Looking at the moon it’s a very different cycle. 29.5 Days.
Moonrise on Friday is 4:45 PM. Saturday at 5:55 PM, and Sunday at 6:59 PM
Moonset on Friday is at 1:25 AM, 2:12 AM and 3:11
It’s harder to see the pattern here, right?
Here’s more info on the Moon than you probably care to know: https://www.timeanddate.com/moon/usa/fresno
BTW: The moon right now is called a Waxing Gibbous. Waxing means that it is getting bigger, while gibbous refers to the oval-to-round shape.
That’s enough about the Sun and Moon. Let’s get you out of the house this weekend. We’ve got some great things to do starting with an incredible musical.
When something as big as Les Mis comes around, it has to be the Featured Event.
“Les Misérables” is a renowned novel written by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862. It is considered one of the greatest works of literature in the 19th century. We won’t spoil the whole story for you, but we’ll give you a basic recap.
The central character of the story is Jean Valjean, a former convict who served 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister’s starving child. Upon release, he struggles to reintegrate into society and finds himself facing discrimination and hostility due to his criminal past. However, an act of kindness from a bishop transforms him, and he decides to live an honest and virtuous life.
The novel’s enduring popularity has led to numerous adaptations, including stage musicals, films, and television series, which have introduced the story to audiences around the world.
As for the musical…
Did you know that 130 MILLION people, in 53 different countries and in 22 languages have seen it? It’s billed as the Worlds Most Popular Musical. We can’t easily go to London’s Sondheim Theatre but lucky enough for us, it’s playing right here at The Saroyan!
Let’s do something a little different. Let’s go to the Friday Night Farmers Market in Old Town Clovis. It has a slightly different vibe than the early morning version. The Market features local Certified Producers and supports the NOSH Program (Natural, Organic, Sustainable, and Healthy). This “eat one – give one” program helps provide nourishing fresh fruits and vegetables to families in need, distributed throughout five Clovis pantries.
Yes, there will be music and food. The local band, PB&J is playing. Now if someone was really cool they would set up a gourmet PB&J food stand right next door. Seriously, picture some wonderful locally sourced, locally made peanut or pistachio butter, some incredible local fruit jam, and great artisanal locally baked bread, right? The line starts right behind us!
It’s funny because we just published a Back To School Shopping Poll this week and you know how we like our puns here. When we saw this “Back to Cool” event, it was just too good of a pun to not include in this week’s H&H.
Check out the “Back to Cool” Vintage Faire at Manchester Mall.
It’s this Saturday from 11 – 5.
Come inside Manchester Center aka Manchester Mall to enjoy over 80 vendors of vintage clothing, hats, sneakers, bags, plush, and toys. There are also other arts and crafts vendors for items like jewelry, plants, art, baked goods, and more. Outside Manchester Center there will be many delicious choices of food trucks to eat at and this event will feature a car show by Travel Team so don’t miss out on fun for everyone.
