Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Walking the Walk

A few weeks ago, I suggested that people find ways to add more walking into their lives. Well, great minds think alike.

A group of parents in south Boulder has started a "walking school bus" named the "Darley Dart", which takes children to Bear Creek Elementary once a week. They plan to add two more routes this spring.

Yes, anybody can do it. The parents in this case got a Safe Routes to School grant to help them get it going. And now, their are fewer cars on the streets, the kids are getting exercise and having more fun, the parents are spending more quality time with the kids. Is there anything not to like about this idea (other than the fact that more people aren't doing it)?
