Well, there are plenty of dismal things going on, and I'd rather not be going to work, but that's life! Some cheery little things I ambled onto in my Google wanderings include:
> When we go to do anything even remotely "dangerous," the sponsoring business makes us sign a waiver. Well, Coyote Blog has the ultimate of all waivers put out by a private nature park. A couple of snippets include: "

you are experienced or not, trained or not, equipped or not, though
training and equipment may help. It's a fact, climbing is extremely
dangerous. If you don't like it, stay at home. You really shouldn't be
doing it anyway." Another: "
By entering the Preserve, you are agreeing that we owe you no duty of
care or any other duty. We promise you nothing. We do not and will not

> The Bunny Rabbit is becoming an accomplished unicyclist. It turns out that there are all sorts of unicycling sub-sports and related specialized unicycles. You can go touring on your unicycle (see Unicycle Tours). A unitour in southern China with wonderful photos and a diary is worth a look. There is also competitive unicycling. See this amazing show by a Japanese unicyclist on YouTube. There are Unicycle Clubs -- the New York Unicycle Club presents a nice film on YouTube as well.
Have a great day!
