Meet GLEE in St. Louis, Louis… Plus Some History

Don’t you just love that old MGM musical “Meet Me in St. Louis”? Such a charming picture, and such a catchy theme song! 

Meet Me In St. Louis - 1944

Guess what? Next weekend, you can find Glee in St. Louis by attending the 17th Annual Healthy Planet Natural Living Expo

Sponsored by The Healthy Planet Magazine, the Natural Living Expo is taking place on Sunday, February 22, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Webster Groves Recreation Complex (Elm Avenue & Glendale Rd just off I-44).

With live music, healthy samples (like Glee Gum!), exciting giveaways, free chair massages (*sigh*), and over 70 exhibitors including Whole Foods, Schlafly Beer, and Sappington Farmers’ Market, it’s sure to be a heck of a good time! 

Admission to the Natural Living Expo is $8.00 for adults and free for kids under 16. Back at Verve HQ, I’ve got five pairs of free tickets up for grabs! So if you live in the St. Louis area and would like a pair, comment on this post with your best tip for living green on a budget. Five best tips win the tickets! 

In other news, I just found a super swell photographic history of chewing gum on the Mint Industry Research Council‘s website. Presented by MIRC Executive Director Rocky Lundy, it’s filled with fun facts* and zippy pics of old-fashioned packaging. You can check it out right here

* Note that there’s just one fact that appears to be slightly off the mark. The (otherwise perfectly spiffy) presentation lists seventy years as the age a sapodilla tree must reach before it can be tapped for chicle. Actually, sapodilla trees are capable of being tapped for chicle between the ages of eight and ten years old! 

Before I go, I just want to show you a beautiful envelope I received in the mail this week. What was inside? Fan mail for Glee, naturally! Thanks, Jane! You are tops with me!
