    Every now and then, the heat and humidity of the Kansas summer gives way to a good ol' rainstorm. I rolled over in bed to hear the sound of raindrops hitting my roof. And it has rained all morning. It's a nice relief for now. It's cool and refreshing. Perhaps I'll go dancing. I might as well since as soon as the rain stops, it will be hot and even more humid and I'll be back to living in the AC or the pool. Until then, let it rain!

    Two phenomena occur in Manhattan, and thankfully they coincide. From the end of May until the middle of August, the population of this beloved city is nearly cut in half. I believe that's our best estimate. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Also, Manhattan suffers the attack of the orange cone. Yes, road construction. Fortunately, we have fewer people to get around town, and traffic is kept moving fairly well, but it can be a nuisance, nonetheless.

    The interchange at Fort Riley Boulevard and Seth Childs Road is being overhauled. I'm not quite sure what point they're trying to get across. I just hope the end result will be more efficient traffic flow. There's also construction on West Anderson Avenue, College Avenue, and Denison, to name a few more. One of my friends joked that Manhattan may have run out of orange cones. At least, I hope it was a joke, and I hope the orange tide will wane by the time the purple tide (K-State) comes in.

    I'm happy to have a home that has access to Kansas rivers. On Saturday, July 15, from 9:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m is the Little Apple Paddle at the Linear Park Trailhead. While I might not have time to register this year, it's good to know that the community is supportive of people who canoe and kayak for recreation.

    There are days that I'm especially amazed with the place I've chosen to call home. Today was one of them. It started out hot and muggy - one of those days you step outside and your glasses instantly fog over. And then the storm clouds started to form and the thunder started to roll. An ordinary summer day in July was interrupted, my glasses cleared and I was able to see new beauty all around me. It was the contrast of the graying skies with the bright green grass and the flowers in bloom. It was the song the sky was singing to me. It was the hope of life-giving rain (and that I might get out of having to water the garden tonight). Whether it rains here or goes around us, I won't know until it happens. It is Kansas, after all. Is it fair to say I really don't want to water the garden tonight?

    There are still some classes open for swim lessons this summer. They are being offered through UFM, which stands for University For Man. It's a community learning center in which anybody can teach and everybody can learn. They offer a variety of classes, including dance, martial arts, computers - even some college credit courses (K-State Global Campus)! Look for their fall catalog of classes in the mail.

    Enjoyed a swim today at the K-State Natatorium. Had to sneak into the parking lot due to road construction on Denison Avenue, but that's okay. The cool water more than made up for it.
    I've found that most people in Manhattan don't realize what a great resource the Nat is - and it's available to the public! Anyone can join the Kansas State University Alumni Association for $40/year. That grants you access to the pools and then it's $3/visit ($1.50 for children). Between the Natatorium and Manhattan's public outdoor pools, you could be swimming year-round.

    Last weekend I went camping. Last weekend was also Country Stampede so Tuttle Creek Lake was out of the question, as was Milford Lake since the blue algae was in bloom and I wanted to swim. So, I took a short 40-minute jaunt south to Council Grove Lake. If you're looking for variety in your camping routine, I highly recommend it. Richey Cove has many of the amenities that we love, it's not too far from Manhattan, and it's not too far from Council Grove. I would encourage you to check it out sometime.

    For anyone who lives or has lived in Manhattan, you know there is just something special about there. It is a place where kids ride their bikes on the sidewalks and people wave at their neighbors passing by! Usually in communities like this there is a lack of activities to do, always having to drive into the "big city" for weekend fun, but not here! There is always so many activities to choose from you actually end up missing out on some from being double booked! If you are looking for a place for you and your family to call home, look no further and the entire town will be here waiting to welcome you with open arms!

    In honor of the first home game being only days away, I wanted to share a video with you that really captures the passion this town has for its University! The city of Manhattan is special for many reasons, but what keeps this town vibrant is its purple pride! From pre-schools to nursing homes, you cannot go anywhere without seeing a K-State bumper sticker or a purple t-shirt.

    Even if you never thought college sports were your thing, they will be now! It's easy to join in with the town's support for their Wildcats! This is just one of the many things that make this town a wonderful place to live!

    The Aggieville business district in Manhattan, offers a variety of stores, restaurants and bars. If you're looking for Indian food, the Dancing Ganesha is the place to be and it offers a very posh dining environment. Hungry for breakfast? Varsity Donuts is a popular hot spot at all hours of the day and night. They even offer donuts at 2:00 am in the back alley behind the store, after you're done with the bars! Have an Irish pub on your mind? The Keltic Star Public House is a nice little pub that offers a wide variety menu including the popular, bangers and mash. The So Long Saloon is also a popular restaurant bar. If you have a chance to stop, be sure to order the black bean dip. Feeling a little ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream? Try the chain Cold Stone Creamery to fill that craving. Located behind the district is Coco Bolos. This is a must stop as they offer daily specials along with the best sangria around! There are several other restaurants and bars here like: Rusty's Last Chance, Pita Pit, Fuzzy's Tacos, Taco's Luchas, Kite's Bar and Grill, Annie Mae's Parlor (live music) , Buffalo Wild Wings, Tanner's Bar and Grill, The World Famous, Cozy Inn (burger shack), and many more.

    Throughout the year, several events are held in this part of town such as Fake Patty's Day. It has earned the name for the simple fact that students are gone for St. Patrick's Day because it falls during spring break when most students are gone. So, they created an alternative day for the students and Aggieville! A 5K kicks off the event, so be sure to wear green and enjoy the popular green beer at available locations. Looking for something to do for New Year's Eve? The Aggieville District provides a New Year's Eve celebration every year called the Little Apple Ball Drop. A much smaller event than the one held in Manhattan, NY.

    If you're a college kid looking for a night on the town, Aggieville is the place to be. There are several bars with live music, comedy, dancing and live trivia. The district is within walking distance since it is just a few blocks from campus.

    I encourage you, the next time you're in Manhattan, to tour the Aggieville District. Again, there's something for everyone and you won't be disappointed. Go Cats!
