Just Crazy Scenic ...

Have you ever visited a place that just doesn't seem real it is so scenic? There is a place like this in Yellowstone that is visited by thousands every month. I am referring to Artist Point overlooking the Canyon of the Yellowstone and the Lower Falls. I mean come on folks ... this view just can't be real.

Clues From the Recession

The current economic recession is giving some clues on how employees can best deal with future downturns.

Fireweed 400 -- 2009 CW 24/7-11

So it's not THE Tour, but there is a major bicycle race in Alaska taking place yesterday and today...the Fireweed 400.





There are several levels...from a 50-mile fat tire roll to the 400 mile race from Sheep Mountain Lodge to Valdez and back. The longer races started yesterday. The winner finished at 8 this morning with a time of just over 20 hours.



Saturday is usually my day off. But at 5 am I was over the breakfast flattop… Continue
