Bennie and the Jets is the premiere Elton John Tribute Band. Bennie and the Jets is led by Greg Ransom whose vocals, on stage mannerisms, and piano playing are exactly like those of Elton John. Backed up by an incredible band of musicians, Greg has the ability to make you believe that you're at an Elton John concert. If you were to attend an Elton John concert today, you would miss seeing the plumage and costumes of yesteryear. Add to that the smokin’ Bennie and the Jets band, the Opera House’s superb acoustics and its in-house, 9-foot grand piano, and you’ve got a riveting show that will please any fan of classic pop music. Tickets are $25.

Quiet Valley’s 27th annual Farm Animal Frolic is May 23 & 24, Saturday 10 am to 4 pm, Sunday 12 noon to 4 pm. Spring is finally here and that means baby farm animals are being born at Quiet Valley and they are just as cute as can be! The farm has so far been blessed with the birth of nine piglets, several lambs and an adorable batch of bunnies with more births to come. Chicks have arrived and more will be hatched in incubators during Frolic so visitors can watch this special sight. There will be a new calf for the children to meet and guests of all ages will be amused by the ducklings as they scoot down their slide into the water. All the mommies of the babies will be on hand as well, keeping a close watch on their young, so folks will get to meet them, too, and learn something about their role on the farm. Our Clydesdale draft horses, Gunther and Wilhelm, will take you on a wagon ride out to the ice harvest pond and back. Make sure to say “Howdy” to Janie, our mule, who doesn’t get to pull the wagon and sometimes feels left out.
Spring is finally here, I think. The brutal winter has left the residents of my often unheated shop worse for wear, particularly my motorcycles. It seems that almost every soft rubber part. The fork gaiters on my 75 Suzuki GT380 have just about disintegrated during the past two winters. The gaiters on the 1970 Honda CB450 have a crack and a few fuel lines did not come through the winter well. My 1989 Shelby Dakota and 1999 Dodge Neon SCCA car seemed to weather the cold much better, needing little more than oil changes and minor lubrication before they were ready to roll.
