Ride for the Roses

Thursday night I will be leaving for Austin to participate in the Ride for the Roses. The ride will benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation. I am sure you have seen these little yellow wristbands on everyone from Venus Williams, Tiger Woods and Derek Jeter on down to every soccer mom and middle manager in the city.

I will be handling dual roles in this weekend’s ride as I am riding in the event, but also a member of the media. With press pass in hand and camera hanging from the strap around my neck, I intend to get some shots of the ride and the events that follow. It should be a lot of fun as it is always a great atmosphere.

RENFEST
As usual, RenFest was great. The Texas Renaissance Festival is held each year in Magnolia, just a short trip north of Houston. RenFest has it all..

It runs through November 14th and whether you have a taste for good comedy, bad comedy, good food, bad food or a wide range of libations – it is an outing to remember.
