GARDEN PARTY

Growing bored? Try another type of growing at the Gallivan Center Art and Garden Show Friday, May 15, through Sunday, May 17. It's a springtime celebration featuring display gardens, seminars, cooking demonstrations, art and garden vendors, children's activities, food and live music.Sharpen your gardening skills at one of a dozen Green Thumb seminars presented by professional horticulturists, floral designers, arborists and chefs.

Chef Barry Knabe will demonstrate cooking with homegrown herbs. (His salad of fresh red and yellow tomatoes, mozzarella, provolone and fresh basil is worth the trip downtown!)

The free event is open to the public and runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

AUNTIE "M&M" . . .

PR people from the M&M's Center for Millennium Hype revealed the winners of the recent "Official Things of the New Millennium" contest.

Utah residents B.K. Sonneman and Joseph Moore won the right to Millennium stuff. Mainly Hype. But hey . . . they'll be eating M&M's the rest of their lives.

B.K. (Barbara) drives the official 18-wheeler of the Millennium AND found the Official Construction Site of the Millennium (could it be the entire state of Utah)? Joseph owns the Official Piggy Bank of the Millennium.

Whatever that means.

BUT THERE'S MORE . . .

To continue the Millennium Hype celebration, M&M's is offering the chance to win $2 million (THAT'S TWICE THE MONEY THE DOUGH BOY GIVES AWAY!!!!!) in the Official Game of the New Millennium, which can be found on specially marked "INSTANT WIN" packages of M&M's Chocolate Candies.

Talk about mission statements. Dr. Covey would love this one . . .

"M&M's Center for Millennium Hype is dedicated to the fair and equitable distribution of millennium honorifics to every Tom, Dick and Harriet we feel are qualified. This lofty millennium goal is to be accomplished with dignity, fair consideration and before the other smart guys around the globe, who are planning on milking this millennium thing for all it's worth, even get outta the blocks. Hey, it's our idea, our initials so there!"
