"Three men and three women make up the cast of this wacky musical that takes a comic look at the “age old” conditions and situations faced in MID-LIFE!"

"From reading glasses and mammograms to weekend warriors and proctology exams - all are lampooned with a Saturday Night Live non-sensibility. Everyone will relate to this hilarious, and at times, touching musical about the curiosities and inevitabilities of middle-age. If you bought some Gingko-Biloba, but can’t remember where you put it - then you’re ready for MID-LIFE!" Put on by Stage West Theatre Restaurants, this musical has only one stop in Canada, running from July 3 - September 7, 2008, in Calgary, Alberta. So if you're going to be in the area buy a ticket and join the experience! We did!

Same-sex Unions Appear Safe in California

Same-sex unions in California officially became legal on June 16, 2008, following a May 15 decision by the Supreme Court of California to strike down the state's ban on gay marriage. In the time leading up to the landmark ruling, however, petitions were circulated by various groups to oppose the impending decision as it would likely support gay marriage and were equally countered by pro-gay marriage petitions filed by groups such as the Million for Marriage Campaign.

"July 18, 2008 - Californians are likely to uphold the right to gay marriage in the state by voting against a ballot measure that seeks to override a court ruling allowing same-sex unions, poll results showed on Friday.

The Field Poll survey firm found 51 percent of voters oppose the measure, which proposes an amendment to the state's constitution recognizing marriage as only between a man and woman, while 42 percent were in favor.

Californians will vote on the initiative, which requires a simple majority to become law, while casting ballots in November's U.S. presidential and congressional elections.

The survey results follow a decision on Wednesday by the state's high court to permit the measure, Proposition 8, to appear on the ballot.

Supporters of gay marriages, which public officials in the most populous U.S. state must now license, had sought to have the initiative removed.

California's Supreme Court, in a 4-3 decision in May, overturned a ban on same-sex marriages, making the state the second after Massachusetts to allow the weddings in civil ceremonies.

The Field Poll survey of 672 Californians likely to vote in the November election was conducted by telephone in English and Spanish from July 8-14. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points."
