Life On The EDGEwalk X
Now We know it can be fun living life on the edge, but doesn’t it have to be this high up on the edge, does it..?? The EdgeWalk at Toronto’s CN Tower is home of the newest BREATH-TAKING tourist attraction for all of you travel and thrill-seeking enthusiasts out there.
Volunteers (Yes, We called them Volunteers due to the safety risks. Lol) are strapped into a harness that is attached to a guard rail (Sounds Safe) while they, pending their fear of heights, have the ability to Literally live life on the edge by walking around the catwalk and even physically lean over the edge (GASP!). The experience will run approximately 1.5 hours, with the walk itself lasting 20 to 30 minutes. Don’t look down though if you’re afraid of heights, as its a 1,168 foot drop overlooking Lake Ontario and the streets of Downtown Toronto. Take a look at these AMAZING photos …

The Perfect Prision X
And We thought incarceration was supposed to be “Punishment”. Halden, A Newly-Built Norwegian Maximum Security Prison spent roughly $1 Million dollars on Paintings, Photography and Lighting Installations ALONE. That part of the budget however, doesn’t include the personal flatscreen tv’s installed in the “Cells”, The Huge Flatscreen in the “Break Rooms”, the “Mess Hall” (See Where I’m Going With This?), and the new clean kitchen and bathrooms the inmates share during their prison tenures. Every 10 to 12 “Cells” share a kitchen and living room where prisoners prepare their own evening meals. NONE of the windows at Halden have bars.
There is also a RECORDING STUDIO with in-house Music Teachers (o_O), a Full-Size, Indoor Gymnasium that includes Basketball Courts with a Rock Climbing Wall among other things. Half of the Prison Guards are Female which the Norweigian Governor believes reduces tension and encourages good behavior. Now are We the only ones feeling like this prison sounds a lot like Elementary School, without the recess ..?? Wait that’s right, they have the full-sized gym. That sounds a lot like recess to us. Take a look at these interior and exterior photos of Norway’s Halden Prison …
PISTA SA NAYON: S&Y with Kicks & Tees
Community support is the key to Pista’s success. Throughout each year, volunteers plan, meet and raise funds to ensure its success. Over 150 volunteers work on Pista, now the largest outdoor Filipino American event in the country. Catering to everyone from birth to community elders, it has become the essential family reunion on a wonderfully grand scale.
Pista sa Nayon’s format has remained the same since 1990. Food booths operated by local nonprofit organizations and Filipino American restaurants are the fare of the day. Human service organizations provide free helpful information for children, youth, families and seniors of the community. Entertainment is donated by professionals providing displays of cultural heritage and enrichment, and amateurs wishing to showcase their pride and love for the community.
Come on out to Seward Park Amphitheatre on Sunday July 31st, from 9am to 7pm. The S&Y Crew will be in attendance alongside Kicks & Tees. Enjoy Fun Entertainment, Great Food for a Great Cause.
