If you are interested in ancestry, this is the year you must go to Poland.

We will be going to towns, villages and cities in Poland to find your family records.

The trip is being organized in September 2010 so that people of Polish Heritage can find their family roots.

If you ever wanted to know where your Babcia or Dziadzia came from, this is the year you must travel to the land of your ancestors. Please go to: www.polishtoledo.com/trip  for more information.

All you have to do is let Kathy know where your relatives came from, the name of the village, town or city, and the family name.

COSI Reopening Oct 12th - Now known as the Imagination Station
YAY! COSI IS REOPENING! I was so sad to see that it closed, as science, and cultural hubs for children are very important to the future of our city!

Their website can be seen at: http://imaginationstationtoledo.org/"IMAGINATION STATION OPENS THIS OCTOBER!

Thanks to the support of Lucas County voters and local business leaders, the new Imagination Station hands-on science center will celebrate its grand opening this October. It will feature the experiences visitors have loved plus all-new exhibits to excite the next generation of learners. As we put the finishing touches on the center, we’re also completing our exciting new website which will be as dynamic and fun as Imagination Station itself! For now, take a sneak peak at what’s in store. Imagination Station, a name chosen from 2,000-2,200 submitted from around the region, will offer an ideal environment to stimulate the senses and encourage interaction. It’s a truly “hands-on” experience that will have curious minds wondering what to do next! Check out our Frequently Asked Questions and Hours of Operation and Admission Pricing pages for more information. "

 I was reading the news, and noticed these 2 headlines. They were stacked atop alone another...

Must be hard to be an oil company. Even with the reduced rates we are seeing, the costs per gallon are actually suppose to be cheaper, around the $1.30s some mark. Barrels hit a new record low ar $66 each...thats mid to late 90s rates. Price gouging sucks.

ok, you all have been super helpful with every other question i've asked so far, so i figured i'd ask another!

i am thinking about joining a gym b/c the time i have to go is later at night, after class. i went to the gym on campus at UT, and it was really creepy and dark with no lights.

i'm wondering if anyone knows of a gym around central/secor that's about $20-30 a month, that has later hours? my latest class 9:30, so a gym open until 11 would probably be the best? 

i'm not sure if this exists, but i figured i'd give it a shot! thanks for any information!

Any Mike Birbiglia Fans?
Greetings from Columbus!  I have two tickets to the Mike Birbiglia show at the Valentine Theatre on 9/26 that I'm unfortunately not going to be able to use.  I bought them for me and my wife for a first anniversary present, but since then we've decided to buy a house and the closing date is 9/25, and we're going to be in no state of mind to drive up to Toledo after that hoo-hah.

They were $27.50 each, but I'll sell them for best offer - I just want them to go to a good home.  I'm open to any kind of payment - PayPal, Personal Check, I'll Pay You Next Year, etc.  Just give me time to send them to you by snail mail.
