Tour de Cure is Coming!

It is biking season and this year we are doing the Tour de Cure! I am so excited to be riding again. We haven't since we had Jayne, nearly 4 years ago.I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with him and type 2 diabetes runs in my family, so my chances of getting it later on are high. I have also known many kids over the years that have had type 1 and it is so hard for them. I ride so that we can find a cure for myself, in the future, but also for all those coping with diabetes now.

We are running a special at The Crazy Elephant. 10% of our sales (through May 14th) will be donated to the American Diabetes Association that includes live shows as well as and

Our team will be riding 32 miles in the Tour de Cure on May 21st and your support makes all the difference. You can make a monetary donation to any of our participants at the link below or even join our team. Please pass this information along. The more support we get, the sooner we can find a cure!

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.
