Ballerina KIMBERLY GRAVES-HAMM Now Coaches Ice Skating Competitors



Marco Berg & Kimberly Graves-Hamm
Decades ago, while performing in a touring company from San Francisco called "Ballet Celeste"...

 I met a young girl named Kimberly Graves. She was the lead in all the dances, had exquisite taste in clothes, & held an uncommon authority in her craft. No wonder then, that she soon went off to become a Soloist with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet

While in Winnipeg, she spent four seasons. Graves then moved to NYC where we once again became acquainted. She joined the METROPOLITAN OPERA BALLET where she was a Principal Dancer for 17 years. I looked her up recently now that we are both living in different parts of California, only to learn her vision & talent have extended to new horizons in ICE! To follow is an interview she graciously gave to me amidst her many professional obligations.

MOLLOY: What triggered your decision to transfer your artistic skills & vision to ice-skating?

GRAVES-HAMM: After years of admiring Figure Skaters & watching the Olympics, I saw a need              for the artistic finish that a dancer has. The musicality & artistry was missing.


MOLLOY: Your protege' participated this year in Nashville with the National Showcase Parade                    Champions?


GRAVES-HAMM: I went with Competitor Marco Berg.

MOLLOY:  I wish you only the very best in your artistic endeavors. How would like to be contacted?

GRAVES: The best contact method would be to email:
         Kimberlygraceonice@gmail.com

Kimberly Graves-Hamm offers off-ice instruction that complements the on-ice activities of skating professionals.

Eureka CA has new Certified Craft Distilled Spirits being created!

CERTIFIED CRAFT DISTILLED SPIRITS 
being created in Eureka, CA! by Peggy Molloy

www.humboldtcraftspirits.com
 For "Shrove Tuesday" I went to our church's pancake supper. 
I was given some raffle tickets from a friend who could not stay for the entire event. It worked out that by the end of the evening, I had won some fabulous spirits! Perfect for an evening devoted to spiritual thoughts...

Living in remote northern California, nestled deep within the Redwoods, we do need our entertainment. Apparently the owners of Humboldt Craft Spirits is ahead of the game with their concoctions of gin, vodka & rye, but also some terrific recipes. I can tell these are tested to the finest detail! I will set them up for the reader below.

In general I dedicate this blog to the arts, but it could be argued that making fine spirits is an art form. 

Here are some recent awards:



 HAVE FUN!
