      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

IMAGINE - A tribute to John Lennon with the Nutopians !

Last night on the eve of the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon's tragic and untimely death, I had the opportunity to witness an amazing tribute to this great legend. The Nutopians a phenomenal band of 8 incredibly talented musicians were playing in my home town. I had seen the advertisements and had made a mental note to attend. Honestly I got busy and forgot, plain and simple until my daughter asked if me yesterday if I was going. I highly doubted I would be able to get tickets butI logged on to the theater's website anyway. To my delight there were three single tickets left. My husband had no interest in going with me and my daughter was unavailable and that was just fine with me; I don't mind going to the theater alone, I actually kind of enjoy it. So, off I went to our new community arts center. I had a wonderful seat with a great view. I no sooner got settled when the lights were lowered and the Nutopians were introduced. For two and a half hours I was transfixed to this incredible talent of the Nutopians. They weren't your typical tribute band, while they stayed true to the lyrics of the songs they made them uniquely their own. The audience laughed and cried at each vignette that was shared about John's life as a poet, musician, and pacifist as well as his life with Yoko Ono and with the Beatles. We learned of the back story behind each song. The night ended all to soon with the poignant rendition of Happy Christmas (War Is Over) and just when I thought I couldn't love John Lennon more the audience was invited to sing along with Give Peace A Chance. I don't know when I have been so deeply moved. IMAGINE!

Thank you soooooo much Kalana, I love them and I love this rendition of a great song. I am just seeing it today as I usually am on my ipad and I guess it isn't visible on that device. Again thanks for a wonderful treat! Happy Holidays!
