The band also announced that their 7/3/2015 Red Rocks show and their 2006 concert Live at the Soundstage are also now available for streaming, and they will continue to add content in the coming weeks. Fear not, non-subscribers, as the service offers a free seven-day trial that should give you plenty of time to watch everything your Umphrey’s-loving heart desires.last_img read more

Bringing baseball to the backyard

first_img“Having something as simple as a five dollar can of spray paint in the backyard, to be able to get up in the morning and come out back and just throw some balls, there’s nothing simpler,” said Howard. Five-year old Emma created an “iSpy” game for the entire neighborhood, putting signs on telephone poles with balloons attached. (WBNG) — As the weather is warming up across the Southern Tier, parents are coming up with unique ways to keep their kids entertained. Austin said baseball is one of his favorite sports, and playing in the backyard is what he looks forward to every day. Meanwhile, in one Port Dickinson neighborhood, the Dancesia family is also getting creative. Emma said “it’s so fun,” adding she wants to do it every day. “Like” Nicole Menner on Facebook and “Follow” her on Twitter. “At each balloon there’s a paper that says ‘iSpy with my little eye,'” said Emma’s father Todd. The object is something nearby that people would be able to spot. “We’ve seen people young and old doing them all, having a great time doing it and thanking us on their walks,” said Todd. Austin said before the coronavirus pandemic, he and his dad would go to fields to play. When they were shut down, he asked Howard to bring the field home. It doesn’t matter how you bring light to your children during this dark time. “You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to have fun with your kids. From a parents standpoint, there’s nothing better than seeing a smile on your child’s face,” said Howard.
