Beach Clean Up

I've never been to a Beach Clean up.

 Next month our store is sending some volunteers to help with an area beach clean up. We will be given gloves and trash buckets to help dispose of debris. We also have to record any debris. I am not sure exactly what this will all entail but I think it's a great effort for our sportswear company to be a part of. There are two beach clean ups a year and I think we will likely stay involved in this effort.

 That I'd like to see.

House of Blues

I had never been to The House of Blues before.

A couple of weeks ago our family went to see Pentatonix at The House of Blues. It is a small concert area that served this group well. There is a restaurant downstairs that you can eat at before the show. We were able to call and make reservations. The food was fine, not too bad but overpriced. The venue for the concert was good enough. The stage is below and I am not sure what sort of seating is available downstairs. Upstairs we had reserved seats and were able to see just fine. After hearing this young new group I thought it might be fun to have some of their music. Of course I will have to buy akg k240 headphones to get the best listening experience.

Fit Myths Fit Clinic

I've never been to a Fit Myths Fit Clinic. This is all about proper fitting on your bicycle. Proper fit is not just for elite athletes; it is just as important, if not more so, for beginner cyclists as well. And a fit clinic can help dispel some of the myths cyclists may encounter when trying to understand bike fitting ("your saddle will break in over time", "if you can clear the top tube it fits".) Bike Barn Houston is offering a Fit Clinic (March 21, 6-7pm) to help dispel these myths and help cyclists better understand the importance of bike fit and how it can increase the enjoyment in cycling! That I'd like to see.

rock concert

I've never been to a rock concert.

The only concerts I've been to were at the rodeo and to see Neil Diamond in the '80's. A pretty far cry from a rock concert. My coworker went to the rodeo this week to hear Styx. Now that is more the kind of music I can handle. And about the closest thing to a rock concert I would attend. Why I would not be able to tell the new peavey guitars from the keyboard...well, ok that may be a stretch....but at least it would give me some decent music to hear other than country western or hard core rock....

 That I'd like to see.

Cheesecake Factory

I've never been to The Cheesecake Factory.

There is a fairly new one in our area that folks rave about. I don't like cheesecake so I obviously have not made the effort to give the place a try. But my daughter does like cheesecake and with her birthday coming up I thought we might take her there. I did ask someone who was talking about the place if they have anything other than cheesecake. To my surprise she said they do, even hamburgers and such.

 That I'd like to see.

Asthma Center

I've never been to an asthma center.

There is one nearby and I have wondered if it is something I should look in to. While my asthma is only exercise and environmentally induced it can at times get in the way of the things I am doing. Whenever I run, swim or bike I often have trouble with coughing fits or pain while breathing. And anytime I am around smoke-whether it be from cigarettes,  black & mild cigars or from wood burning fires-or lots of dust and allergens, my asthma can kick in. I have been told that I should and could have this better managed. I guess that  is why I wonder if an asthma center could help me keep it under control....
