TimeBank Stories: More Volunteers

more volunteers talking volunteer things.

this still needs to be worked on. I'm just getting stuff out there. please comment. 

for you, jo.

clips from the Low Anthem show I went to last night. Fantastic show. Too bad you missed it, jo. (just so everyone knows, I'm not talking to myself... there is another jo out there). my camera doesn't pick up live audio so well but at the end of this vid I threw some in there from their last number that brought the house down.  yeehaw.

music is the low anthem. place is the radio bean, burlington. people are the low anthem.

Stay tuned for more stories from them... you have no idea how excited I am to work on this project!

another random adventure with barrett. I tagged along to his motorcycle club meeting where he showed his slideshow from his summer trip out west. I know nothing about bikes... I know little more now... but regardless, the people were the best and, who knows, I may catch the motorcyle fever some day...

music is calexico. place is essex jnctn. people are mr. jones and the rest are a lot older than me but oh so cool.

check out grassgrows, my regular (un-used) blog, over on the sidebar there. I sent out a letter to family and friends regarding my current adventure in Burlington. Just because it needed some explanation. It needed selling too. I've maybe got something to fight for here.

Maybe this will lead to more writings more often.


homemade soap.

I got to hang around while Amy and Melissa made home-grown (almost), homemade, all-natural face wash. Turns out a basil-lavender face wash could make a good cake too...

music is erin mckeown. place is burlington. people are going to change the world and a cat named stinky.


meet my new friend barrett. he wanted to learn about videoblogging so we went on a videoblogging adventure 'round montpelier. checked out an animal shelter near stowe (I got some cat-love), rambled around town, and got our cafe-fix.

everything was unscripted. which was nice.

music is the shiftless rounders. place is montpelier, vt. people is assortment of cats and one very mr. jones.

so back in december my whole family (one stemwedle and the colombian relatives too) went out for a ski vacation in Colorado.  My first time in the state, my first time rocky mtn. skiing... it was pretty great.

the following postcards are just little shots of the goings-on while we were there.  We drove from Denver to Vail, then later (when our flight out of Denver was cancalled) from Vail down to Montrose, skiing Snowmass at Aspen on the way.  Lots of tight car time with people, skis, and luggage.

here's to the open road.
