We're celebrating our 20th anniversary by going to see the live broadcast performance of "A Prairie Home Companion" at Blossom Music Center tonight! Host and producer Garrison Keillor will be relaying the News from Lake Wobegon, with special guests Jorma Kaukonen, and Robin & Linda Williams (whom I recognize from the movie).

Listen-in LIVE tonight at 6:00 PM EDT. Visit PriairieHome.PublicRadio.Org to find a station in your area, or for information on how to listen ONLINE. And don't forget to sign up for the newsletter from Lake Wobegon while you're there.

"That's the news from Lake Wobegon, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average."

I think I'll bake a rhubarb pie!
