He describes himself as a "LEGO enthusiast with a true love of the 'brick' who found many like-minded individuals to share the hobby and create, not only awesome builds, but an extended family through building and sharing."

Sunday, September 26, 3 p.m.
What happens when feuding fairies meddle in the love lives of human couples?
Find out when the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company performs A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Behringer-Crawford Museum on Sunday, September 26.
We are members of the museum and have visited the exhibit twice. It is worth it because it has a lot of history in it. It was great seeing all that Jim did in his career in baseball and government. We know the family from seeing them at church. Go see the exhibit because you will enjoy it.
