Midtown's Farmers Market
Have you heard the latest weekend weather reports saying Houston will probably flood? Don’t let that stop you from visiting the Midtown Farmers Market. They will be at 3701 Travis Street one block north of W. Alabama,
in the parking lot of Monica Pope's t'afia Saturday 8 am - 12 noon, rain or shine.
The market has Midtown’s freshest produce, vegetables, fruits and herbs. It’s a great place to buy roasted, fair-trade & organic coffee. I can’t forget to mention the cut and potted flowers, and plants that are perfect for that empty spot in your home.
Midtown's Ann Bell
Midtown’s favorite artist Ann Bell represented by Darke Gallery, 5321 Feagan, works will be shown February 16-March 1 2008. The artist’s opening is Saturday 5-8 PM at the Darke Gallery.
Ann believes that art is as essential to life as water or air, and frequently shares her art with others by opening her studio to the public one Saturday afternoon each month.
Bell creates landscape paintings using non-toxic, water-soluble materials. Her painting capture the feelings of some of the places she’s visited and her fanciful visions. Ann’s Midtown Houston studio is at Art Square, 2711 Main St. in the building with Art Supply.
Do you envy the clean, uncluttered look of the Mac’s desktop? I don’t any longer. Once I heard about ObjectDock I had to have it for may PC. It’s my favorite download freebie.
Rather than having a bunch of icons on the desktop, your icons can be put along the bottom of the monitor into docks. ObjectDock can also be used to replace the Start bar entirely freeing up valuable screen real-estate.
