JUST IN: The Green Kayak Market & Eatery, nestled on the shores of the Ohio River, is hosting live "open mic" style acoustic music on Thursday evenings until further notice. Come try out an original or play/sing an old favorite. Life can be tough at times and the escape of music at the Green Kayak at New Richmond on the Ohio is a great place to unwind. Participants play on what the Green Kayak calls its "Peacock Stage" which is in the front window. The backdrop looks across Front Street through a park and onto the Ohio River....What a great setting.....Come visit to hear some of the really great GK favorite players such as Nancy, Terry, "Bub", Brooks, Vince, Roy, Shay, Pat, Tammy, Jim and so many more....As originals are played don't be surprised to see such on our Blog or the Ohio Kayak Youtube page.

As we celebrated National Cookie month, we celebrated the chocolate chip, coconut macroon, fig newton and the classic sugar cookie. However, within National Cookie Month is a celebration of each day. October 19 is "National Evaluate Your Life" day. As we evaluate life on the river all looks good. The Ohio River has receovered nicely from the difficult days of the 1960's and 70's. The Ohio River provides us with pleasure, commerce and solace as it effortlessly flows towards the Mississippi. When we evaluate the soaring hawks, bald eagles and the great blue herrons, we find that the river is alive with the sounds, shapes and vibrancy of life. Welcome to the play-yard.....As part of your evaluation, where is your place for peace?

It seems that humor has lost its way. As we approach the upcoming election, the humor exhibited by people seems to decline and anger, judgment and general meanness reign supreme. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, the bottom-line is that one should refrain from taunting others and lashing out in a judgmental matter. Clearly our citizens care--and that's good. However, let's not forget about respect for others, understanding and "good judgment." Recently, we witnessed a mean-spirited attack based on assumptions, intolerance and otherwise judgmental behavior. Even when one reaches out, some folks simply won't listen. Perhaps we need to be to take a step back and stop the rhetoric and in-fighting. We are one Country, under one government, with hopefully one goal of seeing our citizens excel........Let's tap into the humor of life to help us find the common ground and grow our great Country. We're in it together, so let's act like it!!

The leaves are already beginning to turn and the whitecaps on the water remind us of the cold to come. Fall is a beautiful season on the water and there's just so much to do. Don't let a little brisk wind or choppy water keep you from enjoying the great outdoors. Just remember to cover up a little better with waterproof clothes and even a good pair of paddling gloves. There are so many accessories out in the marketplace that allow for year round paddling, even in the cooler climates
