To all my friends and nonfriends. I’m sorry for not being responsive to your many notes. The Chinese Lantern Festival produced by my employer, Hanart Culture is coming to Broward County, Florida! This is truly an amazing event and one that mimics "THE BLOB" (for those of you who remember this crazy cult film, it engulfs everything it touches). But, this is a happy blob and I look forward to the event’s Grand Opening at Central Broward Regional Park (Lauderhill) on November 21 for 8 weeks, Thurs-Sun. So, click event link and meet me there! Otherwise, the Blob got me. Just be understanding if I’m not as responsive as before. This amazing festival may have as many as 100,000 visitors! 🙂
