Hi. welcome back to winter.

Don't despair! Spring will arrive in six long, cold days. The snow will magically disappear and daffodils will pop up in all their golden glory. I can almost hear the birds singing.

Just keep thinking that.

Meanwhile, if you're planning your April calendar, you might want to think about taking a class in Continuing Education at Wenatchee Valley college. On April 18, two of our highly regarded, award-winning local winemakers will be teaching a class in home wine making.

The winemakers are two of the Wenatchee Valley Enological Society members: John Butler and Glenn Liner. The class will be held April 18 from 6-9 p.m. $45. per person. Only a few seats remain. Call the Wenatchee Valley College Continuing Education Program at 682-6900 or go to the website, where you can register online.

While you're at it, check out all the other classes being offered. While it is said that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, remember this: you aren't an old dog and you can learn new things at any age. For instance, I learned just yesterday that my cell phone - which I've had for quite some time - is called a Smart Phone, and takes pictures and videos and does lots of other things. I hope that soon my granddaughter will explain to me what they are. It is obviously smarter than I am.
