1. Free-Climbing. On January 14, 2015, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson completed the first free ascent of the Dawn Wall face of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. It took them 19 days. Shelley followed them all the way; Jen was impressed with their friends and family; and Cait was glad it wasn’t her. How does this climb compare to scaling the Biggies–Everest and K2? Check out the stunning photos.
2. Oscar Nominations.
Do we care, or is this just the self-indulgence of the movie industry? Cait singes are eyebrows with her vehement reply. Marko adds a new term to define an audience demographic–funny guy! Shelley tells all about the statuette itself. Jen gets us laughing with the sound effects of space.
3. Fat Tires. Fat tire bikes are the newest innovation for off-road biking in snow, on ice, and through sand and soft soil. Shelley and John tried them out, and as the saying goes, hilarity ensued. John’s characterization was unequivocal.
Enrichments or Enragements:
|Cait is enraged by the idea that what happens in one’s personal life and personal images of said personal life should negatively effect one’s professional life. Our ears are still bleeding from her vehemence!|
|Mom is enriched by the joy of riding bikes in the middle of winter. Aaah, technology!|
|Jen is enriched by a new game, “>Machi Koro, which is easy to learn and a fast play.|
