The blog is fully updated! This issue celebrates Earth Day with an “Interview with Mother Nature” and some insight to the origins of this annual observance. Billy Phibbs gets us off to a good start on April Fools’ Day with his tongue-in-cheek “St. John is Sinking” Caribbean Connection column. In Exploring VA Wines, Doug Fabbioli shows us why it is important to "Get out of the Cab Once in Awhile." Lenny Campello’s Gallery Beat column echo’s what many of you may be feeling with "I Wanna Go to an Art Fair!" A Bit of History reflects on a controversial issue as Sarah Becker continues her look at Climate Change.
