For this year’s Thanksgiving feature, I’m going to give you a video of some solid hymns with example of some baking for today’s Thanksgiving feast.
The hymns are from my recordings for the Great Hymns of the Faith songbook album. I would have preferred to have Come, Ye Thankful People Come, but it is near the end of the hymnbook and I haven’t recorded it yet.
Stroll down candlelit trails through the gardens and woods at the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens’ Holiday Luminary Walk. The dates are the three weekends after Thanksgiving.
This fundraiser features a mile of candles, holiday lights, live musical entertainment, Santa Claus in the Depot, horse-drawn wagon rides, hot cider around a campfire and mystical Gnome and Fairy Villages.
Volunteers and staff members are transforming the Arboretum into a wonderland of candles and lights, music and holiday fun. Thousands of candles line the walkways and trails. Holiday lights will be on display from trees, buildings and bridges.
Children will be thrilled to see Santa’s Woodland Depot in the Train Garden and chat with him nightly from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The Luminary Walk will be held from 5 to 9 p.m., three weekends, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 24-25,Dec. 1-2, and Dec. 8-9.
2017 eTicket is $9 per person; children 5 and younger are free. Purchase tickets online. Tickets can also be purchased at the gate the night of the event for $10 per person
Today I am going to detour my fitness update onto Google Maps.
It seems that Google Maps doesn’t have my best health in mind when giving me a biking route through North Kansas City.
It takes me in Eastbound on Armour Road, but then turns south on Howell Street to Railroad Ave and 10th Avenue. Howell is not well lit, allowing a nighttime cyclist to hit unseen potholes, while Railroad avenue is a series of crossing railroad tracks that bump and jostle the rider.
A simple trip a couple of blocks further and one could ride down well-lit Swift Avenue, with no need to cross railroad tracks to reach 10th avenue. But Google Maps doesn’t seem to have the same sensibility that the average cyclist has.
