Holy mother this weekend is busy. Bulleted lists for your reading delight below. Asterisks mean I’m probably going – feel free to join. Blog will be posted at atownpartytrain.blogspot.com v. soon.

· How long you think it took them to practice this? The most incredible jump roping I’ve ever witnessed.
· Nerd Alert: Check out how businesses are using twitter,
· This could be really fun or really dangerous: David Steele Company is selling an iBreath Alcohol analyzer.
· And speaking of awesome breath, bring on the onions. All you ever wanted to know about Taco Trucks in Austin: http://www.austin360.com/food_drink/content/food_drink/stories/xl/2009/04/0409xlcover.html
· Lastly, get ready for free music people. Summer series are starting. Every Thursday at the Triangle (7-9pm), Thursdays Unplugged at Shady Grove, Central Market community music, 2nd/4th Thursdays Jazz on the east side and Blues on the Green, no schedule yet.

Yours in working to live and not living to work,
Kelly
