A couple of things from friends recently that may interest you.
For those of you who live here on the Front Range of Colorado, my ski buddy Claire Walter has a web site called "Mile High on the Cheap", which does exactly what you would think. Claire and her partner find freebies and bargains in the Denver-Boulder area on all sorts of stuff. Check it out, and sign up for the free daily email.
Another friend of mine, Zoe Katsulos, started a travel company a few years ago called Humanitourism. Their hook is this to combine humanitarian work with adventure travel. I haven't taken part in any of their tours, but if Zoe is involved, it must be fun and good for the world. If you're looking for a fun and meaningful adventure, please check them out.
Finally, thanks to Ed Ayres for sending this video of a standup comedian who calls herself Mrs. Hughes. She's the antithesis of Dane Cook.....smart and funny. Enjoy!
