Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

We Repeat Ourselves Because We Must !
Joie de Blog has been blogging for over a year now . . . so we write this post with an odd sense of deja vue, we wrote about it a year ago. However, the event we write of is so wonderful that we will write about it every year from now til Kingdom Come! What is this wonderful event? The HONKfest - a two day event - features lots and lots of crazy, talented musicians playing brass band music with quite a difference. The performers are all ages and come from all over the country. Lots of them wear zany costumes. There are girls performing with hoops. Dancers. Loud & excellent music. They'll be playing in and around Davis Square Saturday from noon to 6 or so, and Sunday, they all march in a giant parade, along with local floats and paraders, right past Joie de Vivre en route to Harvard Square where they do it all some more at the Harvard Square October Fest. If you can catch any of it - you won't regret it! (then come and say hi to those of us who must work inside - unless we decide to run away and join the party!) For more information - Honkfest.org !
