Real Housewife of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice and husband Joe, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you have been watching this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey you would have seen Teresa spend almost $2,000 on clothes for her three daughters; last season she claimed she did not like to live in a home that was already lived in by other people, thus building and furnishing a $1.7 million home. This move does not come as a surprise seeing as how the rest of the country is in an economic recession. The couple filed for $8.7 million in liabilities and, according to E! News, owes Nordstroms, Bloomingdale and Nieman Marcus $20,000. Well at least Teresa has good taste! As much as you want to feel badly for anyone who suffered due to the economic crisis, it is hard to be sympathetic to someone who frivolously spent money in order to keep up with a certain lifestyle. What kind of role model does that make the Real Housewife of New Jersey? They say people learn how to handle money from their parents your parents were careful with their money, most likely you are careful with yours; if you parents spent thoughtlessly, you are probably in debt. Especially now it is important for parents to show their children how to careful handle money. It seems like kids as young as seven I seen a seven year old with a cell phone understand what it takes to purchase things. We are so inundated with celebrities revealing bags and shoes costing thousands of dollars if it were the norm. Advertisements that are geared towards us come at us all the time.

A 4 hour time slot (that includes set up and tear down) is far too brief to enjoy all the events offered as part of Car Free Sunday. Last year, my wife and I found ourselves rushed to leave church, eat lunch (more on this later), and then find our way to Uptown by bike and participate in many of the activities before things were packed up and put away. Increasing the hours would allow more people to find time to enjoy these events. Make it more frequent. My wife and I tried to invite several friends to join us last year, and many had made other plans on these weekends. Kitchener single participation was spoiled by sweltering heat. Making Car Free Sunday more frequent and regular, to say, every one or two weeks, would give more opportunities for success. It would foster a greater sense of community to be able to see each other face to face out on the street more often, and hopefully inspire more cultural change. And nobody would be caught off guard or late for church if they could regularly expect King Street to be closed and plan their commutes accordingly. Serve food. You can host an event that covers lunch hour and not have something to eat!It was a major oversight last year that there weren many food vendors brought in. Where were the chuck wagons that surround Columbia Lake every Canada Day? I would like to enjoy food from all cultures, not just from Uptown one hot dog cart. (Arguably a culture all unto itself!) Selling food permits would also be a great way for the cities to recoup some of the costs. Invite more participation from community groups. Clubs, churches, and other organizations often relish opportunities for exposure to their community. Many churches today are coming to grips with the fact that they sometimes need to sacrifice a few of their Sunday morning services to interact with those who never pass through the church doors on their own. It a good opportunity to connect with the community in a visible way. Reduce the unnecessary police presence. One of the most expensive aspects of last year Car Free Sundays was the presence of a police officer at every intersection. We don post an officer on guard every time we close a street for construction. I sure motorists can figure out on their own not to drive down a barricaded street. Promote it. A lot of friends we talked to had never heard about Car Free Sunday, but might have been inclined to go had they heard about it ahead of time. Perhaps put up road closure signs like they do for days or even weeks in advance of construction. This would also have the added benefit of alerting Sunday drivers to plan an alternate route or choose to bike instead. Don let our representatives be ashamed of investing in healthy lifestyles, community, and civic pride. Our governments invest hundreds of millions of dollars locally on car centric infrastructure that keeps us isolated and is slowly killing us. There should be no stigma for investing a comparably paltry couple thousand on promoting and celebrating a healthier lifestyle and future. As citizens, we should be open about supporting and thanking representatives who have the courage and vision to make these investments, and urge them to complement these events with more permanent active transportation infrastructure. Change the name if necessary, but only with good reasons. Arguing that Free isn inclusive is a bizarre twisting of reality. Clearing away the cars makes King Street a level playing field for everyone to enjoy equally. This isn to say that we might want another name that promotes Car Free Sundays better. But we shouldn walk on eggshells, pretending that having King Street free of cars is a bad thing. Don misinterpret my critique. I think last year Car Free Sundays were a fantastic start. But I want to see them be made better and become ingrained into our local social and cultural fabric. I want to be able to continue to enjoy Car Free Sunday for many years in the future, long after the canard of the on the car has been put to rest. I see Car Free Sundays as DIY street festivals. I don think there are many obstacles to, say, serving food or getting community groups out. But I don think we can wait around expecting the city to do it for us. Do you have contacts at your church that would allow you to get a group out? Do you know how to contact food trucks and get them there? If we want these things to be successful, I think it going to have to be us that puts in the legwork and makes them successful. I can help, join in, and encourage various groups I involved in to show up, but I don have the capacity to organize. Do you? Could you talk to the city and coordinate with various community groups? I think that the sort of thing this thing needs. Thanks, and good questions Darcy. I like your perspective, though we still need some help from our public leaders, especially with allowing King to be closed to car traffic or issuing food safety permits. I also believe sponsoring the event is in the public interest. As for my own church, I no longer part of the board, so I can say what role we might be interested in playing, but I sure there are some individuals who would might be willing to help. I could see some of our musical people taking an interest (though in that case, Sam might not get paid sorry Sam!) Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR White Black Gold,Clutter is a confused multitude of unrelated objects that fill a space in a random and disorderly way. A collection of like objects can become clutter if it expands to a point where the collection cannot be maintained in a clean and organized way. Deciding what is clutter can seem difficult if an entire room or house is filled with stuff. By creating an organizing system it becomes possible to sort the clutter into necessary items and discardable items. This is a first step toward removing the clutter to improve health and reduce stress. Place items in the uncertain bag if you can't determine if or when you might use an item or if you would find it hard to replace the item. Once the bag is full, take the bag to another location and sort it again. Often an item you held on to early in sorting will look different later. Place items you remain uncertain about in a cardboard box that is dated and labeled. Store the box with the label out in a garage or storage area. If you don't use the items in six months, it means you can probably donate or discard them.

Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR White Black Gold The numbers posted for this trail are obviously for the hike to Rainbow Falls and back. The Falls/Bullhead loop is around 13 miles, and the elevation gain is substantially more. This hike is great. We went up the Rainbow Falls trail and didn't see a soul beyond the falls until we reached the lodge. The trail itself is void of most stair stepping rocks and such, which makes for a pleasant push to the top. The trip down Bullhead provided more scenic views than Rainbow Falls trail and, again, nobody was on this trail. This trail is loaded with ankle twisters, quality boots are a must. It's a fun loop. The trail was fantastic and Rainbow Falls was beautiful. The cascades along the first half mile are gorgeous if you catch it in the rainy season. My brother and I took Rainbow Falls Trail up to Mt. LeConte and back down so we didn't get to see Bull Head. The lodge has food available for purchase at the top. You can order dinner or a sack lunch (they take credit cards). They also sell sweet t shirts that bear the name of the mountain. The road was closed when we went so we hiked an extra mile just to get to the trailhead. We ended up hiking somewhere around 14 miles for the entire trip. The trail is very clearly defined but be careful, there was a wasp nest about 2 miles into the hike. As we came around a bend, hikers were jumping up and down but by the time we realized that they were getting stung, we felt the pain, we received half a dozen stings each (that includes the stings on the way down. we tried outrunning them but those boogers are quick). Despite the stings, we had a blast! (The tempurature change was about 15 degrees from bottom to top) I can't say enough good things about this hike. It took us approximately 4 hours each direction but we had perfect weather! All sun, no rain! There were some great views during the descent on Bull Head but I preferred the hike up on Rainbow Falls. The trek beside the creek was very pleasant. And the frequent crossings helped break up the journey. It was a steady climb but manageable with water and energy snacks and not as difficult as a I expected. Good shoes and socks are a must. The path is very rocky and uneven but that's what makes it so much more interesting! The views at the top are amazing! We will be returning next year with hopes of spending a few nights at the lodge. We did get to see the llama train, two black bears and one unidentified snake. We didn't hang around long enough to confirm or deny our Rattler suspicions. Definitely a must hike!! Doable in a day but next time I'll plan to stay up top. A beautiful trail to Rainbow Falls (2.7 miles from trailhead) as it often follows the creek to the falls. The trail is rocky and often muddy due to rain or drainage which sometime uses the trail for its path. From Rainbow Falls few hikers will be encountered all the way to Mt. LeConte Lodge (6.6 miles from trailhead). The climb is difficult and good footwear is recommended along with plenty of water. There are a number of overlooks with magnificent views of Gatlinburg and the surrounding valley's. At about 5,450 ft there is a side trail that is worth the view and a good spot for a break. In the Fall blueberries are often available. The side trail is through mountain myrtle which is beautiful anytime but have white and pink blooms in June. The side trail loops around and rejoins the main trail, so no need to backtrack. At mile 6.1 the trail joins the Bull Head trail on up to Mt. LeConte Lodge. I would recommend going up the Rainbow Falls trail and coming down Bull Head as they both link up to the same parking area. The Bull Head trail is about 7.1 miles in length and while a bit longer, offers great views along the way. Overall an excellent hike for those in good shape and wanting to get away from it all. It's well worth the trip! The trail was rocky and had lots of boulders in the path, but I like that. You hike up about 2,000 feet to get to Rainbow Falls, which is where we went. There were lots of people at the start and fewer as we went higher. The falls were fabulous because the area had 5" of rain in three days prior to the hike. We really enjoyed it and it was beautiful. There were too many people and many people were wearing flip flops. One man even had a stroller in tow. They didn't make it very far and we were thankful. Maybe the park should post more accurate information at the start of the trail. This is one of the most fun winter trails to do in the Smoky Mountains. Its a very steady climb to the top of LeConte where the lodge is. In the wintertime, you can see some cool ice formations at the falls. A lot of people hike just to the falls and turn around. We didn't see anybody once we continued on to the top past the falls. Past the falls, you are going to encounter a number of stream crossings that will be iced over if the temperature is cold enough. A pair of crampons is highly recommended. Otherwise you will have to climb up or down off trail to get around the ice patches. The Bull Head gets more exposure to the sun, so it has less icy areas, but they are also there. Most were passable either through rock hopping or glissading. If your are going to do this in a day, bring headlamps and start early (especially in the winter when you have less daylight). We didn't take this trail all the way to Mt. LeConte as we were really looking for a waterfall trail, but the portion we hiked to Rainbow Falls (2.7 miles each way) was gorgeous! I indulged my photo hobby, especially wildflowers; entire hillsides and moss coated trees were in bloom along nearly the entire hike. Make no mistake; even with the weather in the mid 70s with a nice breeze, my trail mates and I sweated on the way up! The trail is not hard to navigate but it's a VERY steady climb with only a few flat areas. With a good supply of water though, the scenery is well worth it and much of the time you're hiking through lush forests and over bubbling creeks. Do bring lunch for the falls, whether you're turning around or continuing on. My guess as to why not many attempt the upper part? The only sign AT the falls warns of the heights no marker point for Mt LeConte and the trail that continues is a bit obscured by vegetation and looks like it only goes to the very top of the falls. If you do only attempt the falls and come back out, be sure to save some energy for getting out to stop and enjoy the views and more waterfalls along the Roaring Fork Motor Trail that continues beyond the trailhead. We'll be back several times, for certain!
