Bear Naked Trail Mix Winners; Random Shots of Beauty

"What a cold and rainy day -
Where on Earth is the sun hid away?"
- 10,000 Maniacs, "Like the Weather" (video after post)

Keeping things short and sweet on a cold and rainy California weekend - but we do have a giveaway to wrap up, so here goes ... *~*~*Tracy and gregoryboytos, e-mail me your contact info - you've won the Bear Naked trail mix giveaway! Thanks to everyone else who entered, and to Bear Naked for sponsoring the contest.


Today's Random Shot of Beauty also doubles as a not-so-random reason why my family wasn't practicing on our slackline today:

The ridge line looking across Carmel Valley from my house - where the color of the sky as far as we could see was cold gray, bringing a steady downpour of much needed rain as well as a welcome reason to enjoy a lazy day indoors.

My girlfriend got me into this band when we were dating, and they became one of the first "bands with a conscience" that I fell really hard for back in the late 80s and early 90s. Combine that with the fact that the girlfriend became my wife, and there will always be a soft spot in my heart for Natalie Merchant and company.

My heart does a skip when I hear that song too, though it has nothing to do with falling in love. I used to hum it when I was training for my first marathon in rain. Nice randon shot of beauty this week, Donald. Even during inclement weather the place still sings.
