    From the Norwalk Reflector:

    My wife, Jodie, and I are celebrating our 20th anniversary.

    We were married Aug. 3, 1996 and honeymooned in early October of that year, taking an East Coast cruise that included stops in Rhode Island, Maine and Nova Scotia before returning to New York City.

    So to celebrate our 20th, we decided to take another early October trip that would include water, beautiful scenery and the onset of fall foliage. We went to Niagara Falls.

    From MLive.com:

    Annie Edson Taylor left her boarding house room in Bay City in October 1901 to take the ultimate bumpy ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel.

    The extraordinary achievement is told by East Grand Rapids-native Chris Van Allsburg, in his new book, “Queen of the Falls.”

    “I read about her in the early 1970s in an old Sports Illustrated magazine I spotted on the windowsill of a factory I worked in during the summer,” Van Allsburg, 61, recalled in a phone interview from his Providence, R.I., home with the Grand Rapids Press. “The story was about people who went over Niagara Falls, and I was amazed the first person to do it was a 62-year-old woman.”

    I’ve had numerous people email me asking when Sleep Cheap 2010 is going to be. I haven’t received any information, but I would assume the information would be released soon. Looking back on last year, at the beginning of October they were accepting applications from local charities, and then things were announced on Oct 23. In 2008 it was on Oct 17. Obviously we’ll find out very soon when the dates will be for 2010…
