All this for only $30 +  $5 for shipping in the U.S.   Or, perhaps, just a copy of this wonderful book for $15 +  $3 for shipping in the U.S.  This is a gift that truly does IMG_0005real good and supports a great cause. (Note: “When you buy from a dolphin scientist, you are buying more than an object; you are buying thousands of hours of exploration and observation .. and years of commitment….a piece of heart…and a piece of soul…”)   Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- Info:   harzen@taras.org or  561-762-6473

By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan:

Dolphins-46252_452160841488131_696334330_nWhen it comes to dolphin performances in some form of captive environment, there has always been a great deal of dispute. You may have seen the movie ‘Black Fish’, which is specifically about killer whales (the largest dolphins), which addresses some of the concerns we must have when keeping dolphins in our care.While it is often a challenge to provide accurate scientific data on how animals feel I believe given all what we know today, we have all the reason to believe that keeping dolphins in captivity deprives them of almost everything these wonderful animals are supposed to do and experience in their lives. yes, we did and continue to learn many things about their amazing abilities, but usually only in facilities that are 100% dedicated to conducting research. All the other places, where people can go and enjoy the show, are fundamentally business ventures, where dolphins have tremendous value as the ‘workforce’, just like circus animals. ‘Swim with the dolphin’ programs are rather recent and even though they provide for great experiences to the human visitors, I am sure you can imagine how much stress it must be for the dolphins having people touch and pet them without any way to escape.  If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or just leave. But it is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.

The Wick-Mame-December 2014-mame-posterMAME! The Musical Sensation starring Leslie Uggams- Broadway and film star Leslie Uggams stars in the classic musical based on the novel “Auntie Mame” by Patrick Dennis. It tells the ageless story of Mame Dennis’ eccentric, bohemian lifestyle suddenly interrupted when her late brother’s son is entrusted to her care. But rather than adopt to any societal standards about child rearing, money-making and romance – Mame does everything with her own dramatic flair. Many of Jerry Herman’s most memorable melodies grace this production including Mame, It’s Today, If He Walked Into My Life and We Need A Little Christmas. The Wick is at 7901 North Federal Highway – Boca Raton, FL 33487-For Tickets, CLICK HERE

About Leslie Uggams:

Perhaps best known for her stirring portrayal of Kizzy in the landmark TV mini-series Alex Haley’s Roots (Critics Choice Award, Emmy and Golden Globe nominations), Ms. Uggams has performed to critical and popular acclaim ever since her first professional appearances at the age of nine at the famed Apollo Theater where she is now on the Board of Directors.

ballerina-e1274984263The Nutcracker- (Film of the Bolshoi Ballet) - Experience the excitement and the beauty of world-class performances from the Bolshoi Ballet. The story:  On Christmas Eve, Marie’s godfather, Drosselmeyer, gives her a strange toy: a wooden nutcracker carved in the shape of a little man. At midnight, when the celebrations are over, all the toys magically come to life. The nutcracker grows to human size and takes charge of the tin soldiers, flying to the rescue of Marie, who is threatened by the Mouse King and his mouse army. Based on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story, The Nutcracker is one of the greatest classics in the world. With iconic music by Tchaikovsky, charming sets and enchanting costumes, this beautiful tale explores the universal themes of love, power and evil. This choreographic version, created for the Bolshoi by Yuri Grigorovich, is full of romanticism and philosophical reflections on ideal love. Masterfully interpreted by the Bolshoi dancers, no one is ever too young or too old to be swept away by The Nutcracker. For information, CLICK HERE

Eat Scene-W Palm-Tony Solo-eatsceneEat-Scene Coming to West Palm Beach

The brainchild of long-time Florida resident, Tony Solo, Eat-Scene is described as being loosely based on such similar venues as New York’s Eataly and Seattle’s Pike’s Market. There will be 20 or so different independently owned businesses under the Eat-Scene roof, from purveyors of produce, meat and seafood to gourmet spices, chocolates and baked good, along with four different “micro eateries,” a deli and an outdoor beer garden.The idea, according to Eat-Scene’s website, is to create a “market culture for wine and food enthusiasts” and a “social venue that appeals to all your senses.” Located at: 501 Fern St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401-Info; 561-275-1550 or www.eat-scene.com
