Celebrating Autumn a time for outdoor sport and recreation

Now that the heat of Summer is over and just before you start using the cold days of winter as an excuse it is time to stand up and do some outdoor exercise
Hike, Jog, run in the park or ride a bicycle (my personal favorite) as long as you breath the fresh air, smell the changing season and get your heart rate up

But don't over do it. Take a look at the The American Heart Association has a table with the target heart rate zone for each age group

Louisville Slugger baseball bat factory

The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, a museum located in Louisville, Kentucky's "Museum Row" in the West Main District of downtown, showcases the history of the Louisville Slugger brand of baseball bats made by Hillerich & Bradsby, and of baseball in general. Inside the production of the bats is presented, along with historical examples of bats (such as an 1880s Pete Browning bat they recently discovered or the bat that Babe Ruth used to hit his last home run as a Yankee). Outside is a six-story bat that appears to be leaning against the museum building but is completely free standing, the bat weighs 68,000 pounds. (It is billed as the world's largest bat, although it is hollow and made of steel.) The building also serves as their corporate headquarters and a production facility.

Home improvement

And now for something different
A personal post not related to stock photography nor image sales

After two weeks of preparations out painter has arrived today. All our belongings are packed in boxes all the big furniture is covered in plastic and now the dust begins

And next week I anticipate the joy, fun and excitement of unpacking all our junk from the boxes.
At least we have discarded a ton of stuff: clothes, books an encyclopedia that nobody wanted
I am hoping that next week, while we unpack we can get rid of another ton
Who needs belongings when you work from home and meet all your friends on facebook

Enjoy your summer holiday
