Here’s our first of many Friday Round-up’s where we’ll pass along odds-n-ends from the most recent week…
We received some updates from the folks over at the FRESH AIR FUND, and your help is needed!
“We’re already well into July and I have 200 children who have yet to be placed with host families for August. …we need help getting the word out that we need host families who will welcome a child from the city into their homes next month. This is so time-sensitive and important to the lives of these children. Since we need all prospective families screened and vetted by the end of July, time is of the essence!”
MOUNTAIN BIKING – FOX DIRTPAW GLOVES
I’ve been getting into mountain biking quite a bit over the last year and as I’ve been pushing myself on trails have been realizing pretty quickly that I needed to pick up a pair of good gloves. There are a lot of mtb gloves on the market and you can easily drop $40 on a pair, but I found these Fox Dirtpaws for $22 – and they have been incredible! I’ve ridden some crazy trails, ridden downhills in the pouring rain, and they haven’t skipped a beat! Plus they just look badass… Retail, $21.95. Available at your local retailer or through FoxRacing.com
Seriously, if you enjoy wine, but don’t know much about it — here’s your crash course!
