Crochet a Reef in Meridian

by June Pickering
I’m not sure whether I will place this behind my fish tank glass or dip it in something to make it hard [perhaps plaster of paris] then paint it and place it inside the tank. I need to find out what materials I can use, that won’t affect my fish, Any ideas anyone?   I wouldn’t mind starting a group, perhaps “Craft Meridian” let me know if any readers here [you] are interested by leaving a comment below. Also does anybody have a pattern to crochet shoes? I am interested in any craft ideas.

Are You Hungry?

by Art Leslie
No, I’m not about to start a discussion on starving kids in other countries. I am, however, going to comment on two new restaurants that have opened in our area (39305). // Griff’s Bar-B-Que  and  Mugshots Griff’s Bar-B-Que is located in the old “Lonnie & Pat’s” location on Poplar Springs Dr. north of North Hills Street.  I’ve sampled the cuisine and I must admit it was absolutely delicious. They run regular specials on Tues/Thur and Wed/Fri … but don’t forget to ask about the “daily” special. Mugshots is located in the old “Landing’s” location just north of North Hills Street. […]

Do You Facebook?

by Art Leslie
Are you a Facebook fan that spends a lot of time interacting with your friends and playing games?  It can be addictive, can’t it … More than likely, if you are on Facebook and have a few friends, you see all kinds of cute or funny pictures shared by others. Would you believe they are consistently more viral than the YouTube videos that people share? I bring this up because I just entered a contest to create an image that was fun, imaginative and had “sharing” appeal.  Perhaps I’ll post them here later for you to see the lousy job […]
