Wednesday, October 25 - Meeting
The Vestavia Voters with Vision hold their first ever divining. They will attempt to find water behind the new Winn Dixie below the new soccer field where the old soccer field used to be. Legend has it that there used to be some sort of spring that always trickled down the rock wall behind one end zone of Arthur Young Field. Bring your rods and your fellow Wicans.

Sunday, October 29 - Exhibit
The Birmingham Museum of Art opens a new show of photographs by David Levinthal. The photos show Barbie dolls in various poses and settings.

Monday, October 30 - Workshop
Sloss Furnaces holds an avanced fabricating workshop. Only those who have mastered the basics of fabricating should attend.

Tuesday, October 31 - Spooky Council
The Birmingham City Council meeting will be even wackier than usual tonight as council members dress up for Halloween. Mayor Bernard Kincaid has already been seen trying on his overalls for another stint as Grizzly Adams. Other plans include Sandra Little as Glenda the good witch and Jimmy Blake as a doctor. Don't miss bobbing for apples in private lake water and the Michael Choy look alike contest.
Wednesday, November 1 - All Saints
Honor them today, but especially Thomas Moore the patron saint of politicians. And don't forget Birmingham's own Saint Bernard. Never forget how he saved us from puppetmaster Arrington and the shadow regime of William Bell. If nothing else, pray for rain.

Saturday, November 4 - Football
Watch the Alabama sideline closely this week to see if Dubose's head actually falls off. Or they could win the next three and the championship game and get a bowl bid with a 7-5 record. Did you pray on All Saints Day?

Tuesday, November 7 - Predilection Day
Ours is for making strong coffee. However there are many who have one towards obeying the ten commandments. Who are we to argue?
