5 THINGS: Can You See Russia From Your House?

We have the usual slew of reminders in Five Things, plus, happy birthday Tina Fey.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Friday, May 18, 2012:

Cawfee chat. I’ll be hosting a low-key event today, and by “hosting” I mean “sitting around at a local coffee place.” I’ll be at at noon, and sticking around until 1 p.m. at the least. Feel free to swing by and discuss the important (or not so important) news of the day. (Want to see me at some other place next week? Feel free to send suggestions to Stephen.greenwell@patch.com.)

“Frosty Drew” would also be a wonderful name for an ice cream place. Each Friday, the Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown holds a free public observation night. You can head on over around 7:30 p.m., you know, when it gets dark out. For more info, click .

Register for Narragansett or South Kingstown summer camp! Narragansett Parks and Recreation is now taking registrations for , which begins June 25. The cost is $135, and the camp typically runs into late August. South Kingstown is also , and to see their summer camp guide, go here.

Check out some wonderful photography. Downstairs in the Courthouse Center for the Arts, that is. The of Howard Rubenstein is free to view. The galleries are open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Blog blog blog blog blogggggg. At Narragansett-South Kingstown Patch, we’re always looking for new bloggers, despite our obnoxiously long name. If you’d like free exposure for your existing blog, or simply want to start writing, feel free to shoot an email to Stephen.greenwell@patch.com to get the process started. You can write about WHATEVER you’d like!

Yikes! On this day in 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted. The Wikipedia entry is actually really detailed and interesting, so go read it.

Happy birthday, don’t cha know? Happy 42nd birthday to Tina Fey, who is probably most famous for her impersonation of Sarah Palin. I mean, she’s also the star of 30 Rock and a former head writer of Saturday Night Live, but that’s probably her biggest “mainstream” role.
