The Michigan Theater is a lovely historic theater in Ann Arbor on Liberty near State Street which has been remarkably preserved and continues to get the support of the Ann Arbor community, while it provides a lovely glimpse into the past and what the theater experience used to be for moviegoers.  The organ playing was the norm in the old days and she is a beauty from the outside as well as the interior!

Saturday evening Ann Arbor is a special evening for all folk music fans and the area’s most famous actor is going to perform. Consider yourself lucky if you get tickets to see Jeff Daniels & Company; he does a famous job of celebrating Michigan in song and has many local performers with him. He started this show a few years ago and always plays Saturday after Thanksgiving.  People have said he is funny on stage and can play a mean guitar. 
I’m sure most people think of Jeff Daniels from his acting career but he is from Chelsea, Michigan and … (4 comments)

ann arbor: A Sign of the Times: Library Rebuild On Hold - 11/24/08 01:55 AM
It is with sadness, but not surprise that I share the announcement that the Ann Arbor Public Library is postponing the rebuilding of the downtown library.  This is a great plan and very exciting but I must say I'm happy that the board has realized we can not afford this building at this time.
The plan is wonderful, exciting but very expensive and we are going to wait until our market turns around before they move forward.  The public library will continue to support the downtown library so we don't need to worry about failure for our vibrant downtown in Ann … (7 comments)

We have one of the best treasurer's in the country and I say this because of all the proactive things she does to keep people in their homes. Catherine McClary has a wonderful website and has been helping people long before it was in the public's awareness.

Oh there are many times when Ann Arbor, Michigan is the best place in the world...some would think of fall with UM Football or winter snows which are beautiful as well as the springtime when it's cool enough to run a 10K in the Arboretum.  But none of these wonderful times compare to summertime in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I have become a huge fan of some blogs in my hometown.  These are folks I met through Twitter and have since met in person.  They are very cool people and their blogs may not be on the top 5 blog list anywhere but they might be nice for each of us to review and learn something from.

ann arbor: "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" to Keep Us from Succeding - 04/30/08 01:42 PM
Remember the Titans! If you need some inspiration when it comes to this market just watch “Remember the Titans!” I say this because we must remember who we are in this market and work like those on the Titans team worked and people will remember us. I really believe that this teamwork dedication and hard work is what is needed today in this market.
When you are down due to the situations like empty homes, short sale negotiations, troubles with buyers who won’t commit, troubles with sellers who can’t sell at a low enough price…”Listen baby ain’t no mountain high … (13 comments)
