Get Started on Ukulele or Guitar! (Virtual group class for KIDS)
Jul 14 @ 11:00 am – 11:45 am
Online

Image may contain: 6 people

During this 5-week online group class, Ben Brill will cover the fundamentals of ukulele and guitar and teach kids several cool-sounding songs they can play on the instrument right away. The group will even co-create an original song by the end of the class.

*For students interested in guitar, they’ll need to have a simple $10 device called a Capo to play along with the class.

This is a FUN, low-pressure way to have some enjoy music this summer. It’s great if students can attend all 5 classes, but they still can drop in any day and learn.

The event will happen weekly on Tuesday’s at 11 AM, starting July 7th, 2020. If you don’t yet own an instrument, Ben can make some suggestions. The cost of the sessions is $20 per class and can be paid upfront (all classes), OR per session.

If you’re interested in the group, send Ben a message so that you can receive the secure Zoom links to the meetings and farther instructions.

Claying Around

Image may contain: 2 people, text

Due to the covid, we will have limited seating and reservations will be required to paint in store.

Masks or face coverings must be worn upon entering and while you are in the store. We have hand sanitizer at the front door for your use, and throughout the shop. The store has been rearranged to accommodate a 6 foot distance between tables and customers, and to accommodate a touch less environment. The claying around staff will pull and handle all pottery until it is placed on your table, and the paints will be poured for you. We will have lots of employee only areas, so be mindful of the floor markers.

We are also wearing face masks, sanitizing and disinfecting after every customer and throughout the day while following CDC guidelines.

We want to make this a safe environment as well as a relaxing outing for you and your family.

So, if you or one of your family members are not feeling well, we urge you to stay at home and reschedule your reservation for another day.

​Reservations are to hold your table and time, your fee will be returned at checkout.

Understanding Hormone Replacement Therapy (Free Talk)
Jul 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Asheville Compounding Pharmacy

No photo description available.

We will give a general overview of the risks and benefits of BHRT and discuss newer topics such as the consensus statement on testosterone use in MP women and trends toward prescribing testosterone for men in andropause.

We will also discuss the recent support of continuing HRT in women over the age of 65 backed by data on the safety and efficacy of transdermal preparations in this population. Finally, we will discuss the impact of estradiol and testosterone on healthy aging over and above the typical discussion of heart, brain, and bone health. Research out of the University of California San Francisco demonstrates the importance of telomeres in helping to prevent DNA damage that contributes significantly to the development of chronic diseases after the age of 65. Both estrogen and testosterone help to maintain telomere length and thus prevent DNA damage as we age.

What is BHRT?

Bio-identical simply means that the hormone has exactly the same molecular structure as the one naturally made by your body. This is important because your body recognizes it and can metabolize it normally. The term “bio-identical” does not indicate the source of the hormone, only its structure. Bio-identical hormones are made by processing hormone precursors found in plants like soy and yams.

Virtual Exhibit: Hillbilly Land Myth and Reality of Appalachian Culture
Jul 16 all-day
Online WNC Historical Society
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

The hillbilly stereotype is one that is alive and well in American popular culture as a quick survey of the cable dial reveals with such shows as Moonshiners, Appalachian Outlaws, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and countless others.

Surprisingly, it is one often displayed among educated sorts here in Western North Carolina who would never dream of disparaging any minority or “out group,” but do not hesitate to characterize native Western North Carolinians, as a group, as ignorant, in-bred, hopelessly retrograde, violent, snake-handling, moonshining/meth-making rednecks.

The Hillbillyland Exhibition explores the power, prevalence, and persistence of the hillbilly stereotype from the days of its beginnings in the late 19th century to the present day. The exhibit takes a unique approach by focusing on photography featuring the people of the region, some of them stereotypical images, combined with poetry and short prose pieces that challenge and complicate these stereotypes.
