Hotter than you-know-what

Two guys from Michigan die and wake up in hell. The devil stops to check on them and sees them dressed in parkas, mittens and bomber hats, warming themselves around the fire. The devil asks them, “What are you doing? Isn’t it hot enough for you?”

The two guys reply, “Well, you know, we’re from Michigan, the land of ice and snow and cold. We’re just happy for a chance to warm up a bit, ya know.”

The devil decides that these two aren’t miserable enough and turns up the heat. The next morning, he stops by again and there they are, still dressed in their winter gear. The devil asks again, “It’s awfully hot down here, can’t you guys feel that?”

“Well, like we told you yesterday, we’re from Michigan, the land of ice and snow and cold. We’re just happy to warm up a little bit, ya know.”

The devil gets steamed and decides to fix the two guys. He cranks the heat up as high as it will go. People are wailing and screaming everywhere. He stops by the room with the two guys from Michigan and finds them in light jackets and hats, grilling sausage and drinking beer. The devil is astonished. “Everyone down here is in abject misery, and you seem to be enjoying yourselves.”

The two Michiganders reply, “Well, ya know, we don’t get too much warm weather in Michigan, so we’ve got to have a cookout when the weather is this nice.”

The devil is furious. Finally, he comes up with a plan. These two love the heat because they have been cold all their lives. He decides to turn all the heat in hell off.

The next morning, the temperature is below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere, and people are shivering so badly, they are unable to wail, moan or gnash their teeth. The devil smiles and heads for the room with the two Michiganders. He finds them back in their parkas, mittens and hats,  jumping up and down and cheering. The devil was dumbfounded. “I don’t understand. When I turn the heat up, you’re happy. Now it’s freezing cold, and you’re happy. What is wrong with you two?”

The Michiganders look at the devil in surprise. “Well, don’t ya know? If hell froze over, that must mean the Lions won the Super Bowl!”

Grammy award winning artist returns to Greenville

“Christmas Songs & Stories with John Berry Tour” date announced

Grammy winning singer/songwriter, John Berry is bringing his “Christmas Songs & Stories with John Berry Tour” to Greenville High School on December 8 at 7:30 p.m.

There will also be two opportunities to meet him. He will kick off the day with a free meet and greet at Olivera’s Restaurant in Ionia at noon. Then at 6 p.m., fans can engage in a VIP Experience at the Greenville High School Performing Arts Center for $20. 

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. and concert tickets are $35. VIP and concert tickets are available www.johnberry.com/tour. Concert tickets are also available at Chemical Bank in Greenville.

John’s legendary Christmas show, “Christmas Songs & Stories with John Berry” will benefit Have Mercy, a faith based, non-profit organization whose purpose is to keep families together and off the street while helping them solve the issues that led to homelessness. To learn more, visit HaveMercyMI.org.  

 The hour and a half show is filled with traditional Christmas songs (including his a cappella version of “O Holy Night”), some of his biggest hits, and a few of his childhood stories sprinkled in.

John Berry’s Christmas song, “Do Not Be Afraid,” is included on the 2018 release of “Country Faith Christmas Vol. 2” by multi-faceted brand, Country Faith. The CD features top Country Music artists like Carrie Underwood, Chris Young, Kelsea Ballerini, Charlie Daniels, Hank Williams Jr, Darius Rucker and more. Distributed through Curb/Word Entertainment, the album is available now through digital retailers, including Apple Music and Amazon.

“I am beyond excited to have a song on the Country Faith Christmas project,” said John Berry. “Christmas is the most special time of year and I believe Do Not Be Afraid is a perfect song for celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.”   

“I can’t wait to get back and see my friends in West Michigan, we always have a great time in Greenville,” Country music singer/songwriter, John Berry, declares. “That we help a great organization like Have Mercy is icing on the cake.”

It is no surprise that John Berry quickly sells out venues all over the country. The Entertainment Nexus once described the award-winning entertainer as “one of the most remarkable voices in music.”  

Actively recording since 1979, John has one platinum album and two gold albums. Berry has also landed 19 songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including the number one single Your Love Amazes Me from 1994 and six additional hits making the top five.   

More recently, Mr.Berry’s 2018 single, Beautifully Broken, is the featured title track for the highly acclaimed movie of the same name. The song put Berry back on the music charts for the first time in 22 years. “Beautifully Broken is moving, emotional, relatable, and inspiring,” said Missy Wolf, Center Stage Magazine. “John Berry’s ability to deliver is what makes this song so much more powerful than the lyrics alone. It sends chills down your spine.”

“This song has opened doors and hearts in ways no one has expected,” states John Berry. “To be on the charts again with such an inspiring song is a gift and I am so grateful to be a part of this movie and all that has happened because of it.”

CSHS and H Productions proudly present Radium Girls

Maddi Huntoon, Omani Morales, and Hannah Vinton work tirelessly in the studio of the United States Radium Corporation.

This weekend only!

Cast of Radium Girls

The Radium Girls is a phenomenal drama that depicts the mistakes of the past. Picture this: the Roaring 20’s, the stock market is booming, people are dancing and enjoying themselves; however, along with the booming economy, World War I is looming over their heads. The women sit at their bench, painting watch faces for the military men, with radium paint. Their brushes going from the glowing paint, to the dials, and to their lips. The mistakes of large businessmen, the poisoning of young girls, and the daily struggle of life in the 1920’s are seen through the performance. 

The students here have been working persistently, trying to make this performance absolutely perfect. They’re traveling back in time, presenting to you all what happened during the war, what life was like at that time, and how they dealt with their problems. Of course, all parts of our history cater mistakes. And the Roaring 20’s, as wonderful as it was, holds its own misfortunes. The students show you all a darker part in our history. But what’s a show without its audience? Come support the cast, and take a step back into the past.

Shows are Thursday night (11/8) at 7:00 p.m., Saturday (11/10) at 1:00 and 7:00 p.m. There is NO Friday night show due to the football playoffs, so they added a Saturday matinee. Please support this group as they have sacrificed so much during the last 2 months. Tickets are only $7.00 and can be purchased at the door or online through the link on www.hprodcshs.com.

Out of the loop

 

Mr. Norton was in the hospital recovering from an operation, when the nurse on duty received a call from a man who asked how Mr. Norton was doing.

“Oh, quite well,” she told the caller. “We expect he’ll be released in the morning.”

“Very good, thank you.”

“May I ask who is calling so that I can tell Mr. Norton?” inquired the nurse.

The man chuckled. “This is Mr. Norton. The doctors don’t tell me anything!

Photo by Jen Rosenstein

After an epic and storied 45 year career that launched an era of rock n roll legends, KISS announced that they will launch their final tour ever in 2019, appropriately named END OF THE ROAD. The initial announcement was made a month ago on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, which sent the internet into overdrive with fans hoping their city would get one final KISS show. The band has announced the first set of dates and cities in North America, produced by Live Nation. International markets were also announced simultaneously. The tour will stop at SMG-managed Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. KISS will be offering VIP experiences and special KISS Army fan presales.

Known for their trademark larger-than-life blistering performances, KISS has proven for decades why they are hands down the most iconic live show in rock n roll. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide have said this tour is devoted to the millions of KISS Army fans.

“All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in…Unapologetic and Unstoppable,” said KISS.

Uncle Skinny’s Christmas coming to the Kent Theatre

The Rockford Area Theater Troupe is pleased to announce their upcoming fun-filled, western-themed and original performance of Uncle Skinny’s Christmas, coming to the Kent Theatre in Cedar Springs on November 16-17.

The story begins in the furthest saloon, of the furthest town, in the furthest county. The Boys are playing evening poker, the Ma’dam is tending bar and the Dance Girls are hanging festive finery for the upcoming Orphan Christmas Jamboree Competition.

A headline from the Sherriff’s paper alerts the townsfolk that infamous, villainous Tobacco Spittin’ Snake Venom Gang has been plundering all the nearby communities of their orphans’ Christmas presents…and that their little town of Rosewood is next in line.  

An unhinged visit from Holly Hatchet, followed Uncle Skinny, Niece Nance and Niece Noodles, a Red-Flanneled Stranger and then the Posse, isn’t enough to derail the townsfolks from falling into the hands of the villains.

Their fate, and that of the orphans’ presents hangs in the balance…until Uncle Skinny reemerges just in time to receive an unexpected, but not forgotten, Christmas gift.

The Rockford Area Theater Troupe is a group of old and new friends who laugh during practice and bond over post-practice beverages. Please come out to support their amazing efforts, while enjoying entertaining portrayals of classic and beloved characters that have yet to be discovered by the general public. Thank you!

The shows will be at the historic Kent Theatre, 8 North Main St., in Cedar Springs at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. Tickets are $6 for twelve and younger and $12 for thirteen and older.

Write it down

 

There was an elderly couple that noticed that they were getting a lot more forgetful, so they decided to go to the doctor. The doctor told them that they should start writing things down so they wouldn’t forget them. 

At home that evening, the wife asked her husband to get her a bowl of ice cream. “You might want to write it down,” she said. 

The husband said, “No, I can remember that you want a bowl of ice cream.” 

She then told her husband she wanted a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream. “Write it down,” she told him.

Again he said, “No, no, I can remember: you want a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream.” 

Then the wife said she wanted a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top. “Write it down,” she told her husband.

Again he said, “No, I got it. You want a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top.” So he went to get the ice cream and spent an unusually long time in the kitchen—over 30 minutes. He then came out and handed his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. 

The wife frowned at the plate for a moment then asked, “Where’s the toast?!”
