A Few Links for you to Check out

I have been battling a cold for a few days and have not felt up to getting much done in the way of stitching or working on my Etsy shop.  But I think the worst is over, so I will spend some time photographing things I want to show you this weekend.  :-)

In the meantime, I thought it might be fun to show you a few things.

This video was made by UTCX (Utah CycloCross) - it was a cycling race held at Wheeler Farm three times during October, right in the middle of our busiest month.  But it was fun to watch, and even if you don`t dig the soundtrack, the footage has a lot of wonderful scenes of Historic Wheeler Farm, where I worked for 3.5 years as a bookkeeper (I just retired).  The Farm is literally a one-block walk from my home.

Secondly, DH Bruce is now volunteering at The Leonardo, a newly-opened arts, sciences, technology and culture museum.  In fact, he is not only on their home page, but was a featured interviewee on Veterans Day.  See that article here.   Later today (Friday) he is volunteering and will get to meet the first US Adaptive Bobsled Team. Each of the members wears a prosthetic limb.

So, that`s my short, picture-less post for today. But I`ll be back to talk to you soon.

The perfect spot for Bruce to volunteer! The Farm's so colourful in the Fall.
The race looks really tough, all those ruts, hills and obstacles the riders had to lift their bikes over!

Hope you're feeling better from your cold.
