I don’t know about y’all but i HATE the smell of bleach.  A few years ago, after i had my daughter,  i decided to go all Eco with my cleaning products. I  found some great alternative to those harsh and icky chemical cleaners but sometimes they can get pricey. after doing some research i found that the same ingredients in the Eco products are things i already had around.  Today the Ogden nature center is having an Eco-friendly  cleaning product workshop This will be a fun and productive evening spent making non-toxic cleaning supplies for your home.  Learn some simple recipes for healthier cleaning products using items commonly found in everyone’s pantry.  Create household cleaners that will be both easy on the environment and on your wallet. You’ll leave with freshly made window cleaner, furniture polish, all purpose cleaner and a host of recipes to create your own green cleaning.

OK if your  wanting to get out and have some fun then enough lallygagging about its time to speed up the pace. head on over to the union station for jingle bell jazz at the station with the WSU jazz ensemble. Due to the closing of WSU on Tuesday because of a blizzard warning, the November 23rd concert by the WSU Jazz Ensemble was canceled. It has been rescheduled as part of the Jazz at the Station programming, Wednesday, December 8th. In addition to holiday tunes, this concert will feature the music of the Big Band era. Some of the pieces will feature vocalist Sarah Marshall. Also featured on the concert will be the WSU Jazz Combo. No music is more evocative of a period of American History than the Big Band sound. The remarkable thing is how it still continues to appeal to audiences of all ages. Expect to hear music by Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Stan Kenton, Duke Ellington and more, played with the youthful enthusiasm of our fantastic WSU Jazz Ensemble.Jazz at the Station provides an all-ages venue for jazz fans and students. Well behaved children are welcome to attend as long as they do not disturb the performers or members of the audience.

Hardcore music not your thing?  Then come out  to Mojos  and support the Nurture the Creative Mind Foundation as they host the BEST open mic in Ogden. ALL musicians, poets, singers, MCs etc are welcomed and wanted. There Will be no featured artist this month instead we are just having a completely OPEN mic. So shake off those nerves and show Ogden your talents.

Now to end the night there’s nothing better than a glass of wine  and some blues music.Harper and mid-west kind are playing at the wine cellar just for you. an amalgamation of blues, rock, funk, soul and world music, Australian singer/ songwriter “Harper” creates a heady mix of roots/ jam music through his creative use of the harp, and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. Borrowing from western and world music, this musical visionary develops a highly original take on the roots genre. For further information check out Harper’s website: www.harper.biz

Get out there, have fun , make a new friend and try something new. and as always be safe!
