They didn't ascend, but they were gorgeous.

These hot air balloons had to stay on the ground this morning due to weather condition.

Asbury Park Zombie Walk 2014 III

Posted: 04 Oct 2014 06:41 PM PDT

A Zombie Walk is an organized gathering of people who dress up in zombie costumes and then converge quickly in a public area for surprise and fun. Walks usually in urban areas such as shopping malls or town squares. Participants arrive at a pre-determined time (often at a hidden location) and then emerge as a group to creep in a somewhat orderly fashion through shocked and amused crowds, towards a final destination (usually a cemetery, club, bar or after party).

Back in time: civil war re-enactment

Posted: 04 Oct 2014 04:58 PM PDT

The river through time is a civil war re-enactment going on this Saturday and Sunday October 4 and 5. This is a free annual event sponsored by the Gem County Historical Society taking place in Emmett, Idaho and it celebrates the people who settled the Payette river between 1859 and 1946.
Felicia Wilbur from Boise was wearing a green dress dating to that historic time and umbrella. She was accompanied by Deborah Byrd who was wearing a white costume and white umbrella and trading for furs with 'Smokey" Dave Myers from New Plymouth.

McKenzie Sheldon and Kathleen Derig were preparing beef stew outside their covered wagon and were handing out tasty samples.

Hong Kong Protests: Six Days and Counting

Posted: 03 Oct 2014 02:37 AM PDT

The scenes of protests in Hong Kong have started to become everyday sightings as protesters enter the sixth day (10/3) of street blockades. Heavy rain that had swept through the protest site in Admiralty did not deter a handful number of students continue to visit the protest site by the end of the school day. The wall outside the Central Government Offices complex have become a colourful mosaic of sticky notes posted by supporters of the movement, mostly youth.

Initiated by secondary and university student groups, the creative spirit is indeed embedded in the protests: from a cartoon drawing depicting the confrontation between police and students posted among the sea of sticky notes to the more known 'tree of democracy' erected outside the government offices by university students.

However, partially due to the heavy rain, the number of protesters were relatively low this afternoon compared to the previous days of protests.
