Easily riding along a natural bench trail, crossing the occasional stream you can wind your way out of another hollow, the steep climb to get here is nearly forgotten, nearly. Pedaling past unique rock outcroppings and ancient trees you get the feeling that your glad you brought your bike on this trip to the Ozarks of Arkansas.
Why ride Arkansas? Because it’s the place that everyone else is riding and not telling you about. It’s a place Northern colleges send their cycling teams to train because the roads and weather are perfect in the late winter and early spring. It’s a place where in the dead of winter when many mountain bikers stare longingly at their bikes hanging in the garage, Arkansans are riding sweet ridge-lines with unlimited views, no studded tires, no heavy coats, no worries.Get all the details on this Pssst Posters site...

Okay, I’ll (Claire Williams) admit it. I love Christmas. I love everything about the festive season: the twinkly lights that adorn every shop window, the fires that crackle in cozy local pubs, the one-click ordering on Amazon that sorts everyone out their presents without me ever having to leave my dented spot on the sofa, and the beauty of Sky+, saving me ever having to miss a single corny Christmas movie whilst I party the nights away at various festive events.
One thing that signifies Christmas to me the most is our annual trip to see a show in the West End. Every year my friends and I traipse through the crowds in Leicester Square and queue up with everyone else in front of one of the variety of neon-lit theatres that decorate the streets. The only thing that lets it down? The less-than-great drudge of restaurants offering numerous variations on, let’s face it, the same congealed pizza and pasta rubbish over and over again.Get all the details on this Pssst Posters site...

What seems like many years ago now, I was driving up to Naryn and as we passed through the town of Kochkor, I saw a sight that made me smile. Draped over the fences were row upon row of colourful shyrdaks, felt carpets. There were even shyrdaks laid on the side of the road. I mentioned this when we got to Naryn and I was told that they were cleaning the carpets. Apparently, twice a year you should shake the carpet and beat it with a carpet beater, stick or tennis racket, then lay it out in direct sunlight for about three hours. You shouldn’t try washing it with soap and water nor use a brush or a vacuum cleaner because this can destroy the felt.Visit Pssst Post: Pssst.... wanna buy a shyrdak?

The City of San Carlos introduced its website facelift….in stealth mode.
The refresh “went live” on Monday, November 7th. Four days later, the City sent out an e-notify email inviting resident subscribers to check out the “refreshed page.”
The new look is part of the city’s new branding campaign that aims to “market local businesses.” This includes a redesign of the City’s new logo, emphasizing the tagline, “The City of Good Living.” The website has a prominent slider of photos with captions that read: “Live Here. Dine Here. Play Here.”Visit Pssst Post: Pssst…The City’s “Refreshed” Website Is Up
