Seems that The Governator has done a job on the people of our fair state. It is now affecting the noble profession of teaching. All districts are required to make 10% cut in the 2nd trimester spending budget. No district budget can be turned in to the local county board of education without the cut. It’s been on the minds of everyone at work and to be relaly honest it is slowly taking a toll on me.
On a brighter note, KH and DH invited LD and me to “Cirque Du Soleil — Corteo” now playing at the Del Fairgrounds. As a person that has involved in design (ok, it’s colorguard design) I was totally fascinted by the look of the show and the depth and complexity of the staging. The look of the show was deep, rich and had a European sensibility. It was cool, it was hip and it was trendoid.
The different acts included a group of bedroom tumblers, outstanding junglers, acrobats that hung by straps, guys and gals manipulating full sized hoops and gymnasts who’s precision timing as they swung in and out of each other was flawless. We were mezmorized for 3 hours. It was subtle, it was over the top, it nuanced, it was fabulous.
