When life takes me on a new journey, I simply remember the smile my first ballet recital put on my face and I move forward. – Andrea Thompson There’s something magical about going to ballet.

National Lame Duck Day National Lame Duck Day is an annual fun celebration observed on February 6th of every year. A lame duck is a term currently used in politics.
