Sarah Uthoff By the Numbers June 2019

Show me the numbers they say and I was inspired by a poster for a concert at Kirkwood that included the performer’s number of Facebook likes. I thought, “I can do that!” I did previous posts Trundlebed Tales by the Numbers August 19, 2013,  December 14, 2013 June 8, 2014December 19, 2014, April 13, 2015September 20, 2015 , December 30, 2015April 6, 2016, and February 5, 2017August 20, 2017 , and February 25, 2018, and November 19, 2018. It’s a collection of raw numbers of my online activities. It’s interesting to track. Today’s post numbers are as of June 29, 2019.

Are you looking for a fun project for Wednesday, June 20th? Then come on out to Ushers Ferry Historic Village in Cedar Rapids.

Ushers Ferry is where I got my start in living history and first and third person historical interpretation. In the last couple of years I’ve returned for a couple of events and gotten a chance to cook on a wood cookstove again.

I’m going to be heading back next week.

Stop by:

Wednesday, June 21, 2019 between 5:30 and 8:30pm, tour Ushers Ferry and stop in to see me cook!

I’ll be in the Usher House.

June 2019 Presentations

June is a month where you see a lot more events than presentations, but I do have one of this month. Even though I’m not speaking there this year, I want to point out that a conference I often speak at the Country School Association of America (one-room schools) is happening this June. There is still time to register for that one.
