Stranded at Philadelphia's Airport -- kinda

Image
This is what a huge airport looks like when there's no one in it. I recently missed my connecting flight at Philadelphia International Airport. My Flight from New Haven to Philly was about 15 -20 minutes late arriving in Philly. 
    So, when we landed, ... a US Air agent asked everyone that was in danger of missing their connecting flight to see her.  I saw her. She helped some people on a flight to Atlanta.

Wide Open Bluegrasss

I guess it's better late than never. Wow -- here's another late post. Wide Open Bluegrass was in early October. So, still a whole month late on this one.  -- More late post to come.





















Raleigh Bikefest: Jason Britton

Image
I am really, really backed up on blog posts. It's because I've been really distracted lately. Really distracted. For example.

This dude is sick -- according to Wikipedia he started riding at the age of 2.. and is currently a stunt rider for several Hollywood films.
