In August I learned that I needed some pretty serious surgery to correct cervical spinal stenosis that threatened to rob me of the use of my extremities. Because my REALTOR training taught me always to find the best at whatever I sought, I turned to the internet. That in turn lead me to the provider […]

Bell Building Rebirth

You know the Bell Building, even if you’ve never been inside. It’s one of the key features of Montgomery’s downtown skyline. It’s our city’s first skyscraper, and we know it a bit better than most because we went into and out of it for about seven or so years at the end of its first […]

We’ve been driving around recently and have noticed the lengths to which our neighbors will go to celebrate one of our favorite holidays, Halloween.

Tonight we saw the very best production we’ve ever seen at the Cloverdale Playhouse. That’s saying something since we have pretty much been reviewing plays there ever since 2011, when then-Artistic Director Greg Thornton quoted Rosencrantz and Guilderstern Are Dead in the epigraph to a Midtown Montgomery Living blog post about picking plays during that […]
