When your cat’s named Roxie Hart, what else are you going to do?

I suppose it isn’t all that surprising that someone who calls their cat after a small time Chicago murderer is going to mad about the performing arts.

New York city cabaret

This is one of those stories where someone’s passion and love becomes so much more than something to look at once in a while. It becomes the ‘thing’ they do.

Twenty years after creating New York city cabaret its owner Elizabeth Ahlfors is now a go-to person for all sorts of different theatre, musical theatre and on and off-Broadway productions. It was a love born as a result of living in the city which was edgy when she was born there, and where theatre has not changed from the living on the edge mentality.

Her views and her ability to write spread out over time and she started to write about the Philadelphia scene as well. What makes her different is her independent view. With all those years of seeing the good, the bad and the downright ugly, this woman knows exactly what makes for good theatre.

If you want to know a bit more than “I know what I like”, such as what makes good theatre or why this production had great sets but the music sucks, you can begin to get the inside steer by checking out Elizabeth’s website.

She’s not just a view of the theatre though. The other part of the job is the writing. Real writers have an interest in everything and they have the gift to make it fascinating and something you want to check out. Elizabeth clearly has that, she writes for all sorts of diverse needs.

If you’re going to the theatre in NYC do you a favor and read what she has to say.

Motivations For Wanting To Cancel Timeshare

timeshare cancellation

There will be any number of good, personal and business and financial reasons for wishing to cancel ownership of a timeshare unit. There are also poor reasons for doing so. These should have been avoided from the outset. But all to no avail. Previously, wishing for a timeshare cancellation would have been akin to trying to get out of a heavy traffic jam. Because of the financial implications, it could also be likened to trying unsuccessfully to get out of debt. It was like getting into a debt trap, never knowing how to extricate yourself from it.

It is still the case today that most middle income earners are able to afford at least one get away from home vacation a year. But these middle income owners, even managing to go abroad, would still have to be budget conscious with this luxury, a luxury that many others, still to this day, simply would never be able to afford. Back in the day there was great excitement when the timeshare concept was developed and introduced to the unsuspecting public. The impression was given that this was a holiday concept far better and certainly more luxurious than staying in a rustic caravan park or motel room.

The luxuries sold came quite close to those already offered by four to five-star hotel developments, but at a perceptively more affordable price. Also, these were not rooms to be rented for the duration of a vacation stay, these were self-catering apartments which you owned. A holiday apartment that you owned! An apartment away from home. The excitement soon died down once timeshare owners began to experience all of its inconveniences. Setting aside these, current owners now have the expert legal means to free them of their irritations. 

Knowing & Understanding Your Universe

expanding universe theory

Truly, would you be interesting in knowing everything there is about your universe. Perhaps this will come as no shock to you, seeing as though you have already been reading on the subject. The reams of information on this universe and others are just so voluminous, you would probably need several lifetimes to get through it all. But do not be shy. It is well known that you want to learn more. Perhaps this will make your reading and research even more interesting. Take yourself on a diversion for a while. And after you have completed your reading of all the introductions to the expanding universe theory, perhaps you will still be able to come up for air.

Yes, you may gasp. Whether you have been reading or not, you should know by now that this universe breathes and lives just like you. Perhaps you have stopped growing for now, but just so you know, this universe is still growing. And it is not alone. There are others. They are growing too. And before them, there were others. Those came and went. Millions and millions of years ago. Or was it billions. Anyhow, the reading material is just so interesting. It goes against the grain of what has already been taught. It forms part of the fascinating realm of alternative theories on how the universe and the others may have started and now continue to grow and expand.

Never for a moment believe that you are indulging in pure science fiction and fantasy. These are doable theories put together by scholars who have been reading and researching for just so many years already. And they are still at it. And by the time they have left, others will have taken their place.
