We happened to be on vacation when the solar eclipse of 2017 was going to take place. I was bummed because I suspected we were just going to miss the whole thing. But, thanks to The Wobblin' Duck Saloon, we even got to watch it (safely).
There was some buzz this last week about a music festival in the Bahamas that went terribly wrong. Basically, it was a cheap festival that attracted a lot of young people to go see some big acts.
