The most fit and disciplined groups I know are U. S. Marines and Dancers. As seen here, the instructors look about the same. Both groups are volunteers but Dancers may have more discipline, an observation that almost guarantees I’ll soon receive a spirited e-mail from Afghanistan. Semper Fi.

Kids in central North Carolina seldom see snow. The Town of Cary sponsored a man-made sled run at Bond Park last weekend. Lots of rookies and a few Moms and Dads who were using their kids as an excuse to be kids. Late in the afternoon, real snow fell. A fine time was had by all.
Late Saturday, we got some rare snowfall. I was photographing a man-made sled run at Bond Park when Mother Nature took over. Tar Heels will understand the title.
