Next to Newsletter
Last night, I was beside myself- despite my best efforts, I'd picked up a nasty computer virus. My mouse was erratic, I couldn't navigate and pages kept popping up at random.
All I could think was that I wasn't going to be able to send out the Next to Newsletter on time. Then came Arthur the PC Tech to the rescue. He ran scads of utilities, scrubbed my hard drive and rescued all of my data...my hero! Thanks, Arthur!

Coconut Lime Bars
This is in the tradition of lemon bars but with a nice twist.
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons lime zest
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine the coconut, 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and the butter in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times until a crumbly dough is formed. Press firmly into a greased 8-by-8-inch pan. Bake until just golden, about 12 minutes.
Sift together the granulated sugar, the remaining 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, and the 2 tablespoons of flour. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, lime zest, lime juice, and vanilla. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture, whisking to avoid lumps. Pour the filling over the baked crust.
Bake until the lime curd is set in the center, about 22 minutes. Cool completely in the refrigerator, about 2 hours. Cut into 16 bars and dust with powdered sugar before serving.
GHS Theatre Presents
LAST NIGHT OF BALLYHOO
The Freitags, a Jewish family living in 1939 Atlanta, are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season, than they are with the events that are taking place on the stage of world history. Events take several unexpected turns as the family gets pulled apart and then mended together again with plenty of comedy, romance, and revelations along the way. November 17-19
MY FAIR LADY
firstname.lastname@example.org or tickets will be sold at GHS outside the lobby on Nov.17-19 and Dec. 1-3 from 11:30am - 2pm.
Professor Henry Higgins takes a bet from Colonel Pickering that he can transform the unrefined, dirty Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, into a lady, and fool everyone into thinking she really is one, too! But when Higgins takes all the credit and forgets to acknowledge her efforts, Eliza angrily leaves him for Freddy, a young aristocrat. Suddenly Higgins realizes he's grown accustomed to her face and can't really live without it.
Tickets ($5.00) are on sale now for both plays. Email your request to
