ornaments bowlOne of my favorite shabby chic Christmas decor ideas for Bethlehem Pa apartments: a bowl of ornaments. All those extras, the old ones, vintage balls, or ones that have lost their ends can be used for a bowl of Christmas. Use as a center piece or on the buffet table. I have a clear glass bowls of blue, gold, and silver ones on my fridge top. Looks smashing.

Facebook Dilemma

I’m in need of advice.

I usually hit Facebook every week and give updates of the blog and “like” some people I follow etc. but today I cannot log into my facebook account without giving a cell phone number (they say it’s for security reasons). Since this account is for the business, and we don’t use a cell phone for the business but
a regular phone line, I’m at a loss, since they want to sent a text with some code to say it’s okay for me to use my facebook page.

I do not wish to use my own personal cell phone number for the business, plus
I have my own personal facebook account linked with it so it would be impossible anyway. In addition to this: Why do they need to collect cell phone numbers???? It seems like more and more our privacy is being taken away. I think that facebook is officially dead for Apartments i Like.

Does anyone have any advice for me on this issue?  It would be greatly appreciated.

Wilkes-Barre Apartments – The Arts in Wilkes-Barre

Choosing one of the lovely Wilkes-Barre apartments to live in give you numerous life-style amenities, including easy access to the arts of down-town Wilkes-Barre Pa. High on the art’s list is the F. M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts. This majestic theater was originally opened in 1938 as the Comerford Movie Theater. It was one of the grandest art deco movies theaters of the time, with a capacity of over 2,000 patrons. It soon became the most popular theaters of the city.

Located on the square in downtown Wilkes-Barre, this beautifully renovated theater is a quick walk or drive from most Wilkes-Barre apartments. The beauty of it has since changed from its original day, but the grandeur has remained, and has even improved, mainly due to the community’s support and donations from local business people. In 1986, the theater experienced a major renovation and went from an abandoned movie house to become a premier concert theater, the F. M. Kirby Center. In 2006, it underwent maintenance renovations to upgrade the worn carpets and seats, etc. from the 1986 restoration. The theater now boasts of the restored art deco look of the original 1938 theater.

The F. M. Kirby Center is home to the performing arts of the region and beyond. Living in Wilkes-Barre apartments will give you easy access to the great entertainment features of this theater including concerts by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic orchestra, which presents a regular Fall/Winter schedule, and the Wilkes-Barre Ballet Theater. Artists from around the world perform here including rock bands, musicians, comedians, opera performances, and Broadway plays. The theater also features Free movies.

The box office if open daily. Step out of your Wilkes-Barre apartments where you can view upcoming events including: the opera La Boheme, The Pink Floyd Experience, Free movie: Sleepless in Seattle, Comedian John Pinette, and latest Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic concert, coming this month.
