Bob Weir Trio at Silver Oak Winery

June 11, 2009

The Rex Foundation is the charitable foundation created by the Grateful Dead to support grassroots organizations doing good work in the fields of health, the arts, education and community. The Rex Foundation created the Rex Musical Caravan where bands get on board to support Rex donating a portion of the proceeds to the Rex Foundation. Rex board member, Tim Duncan, whose family owns and operates Silver Oak Cellars in Napa Valley, hosted a Rex Musical Caravan featuring Taj Mahal. Rex board member Bob Weir performed, unannounced, with friends Jay Lane and Rob Wasserman. Here is a short video of one of the the tunes they performed.

Fire Arts Festival by The Crucible

June 4, 2009

The Crucible is an industrial arts learning and production facility in West Oakland, California. The Crucible provides classes in glass blowing, welding and fabricating, jewelry, bicycle repair and many aspects of the industrial arts. The Crucible provides wonderful community support for the youth residing in the surrounding community.

Every summer, The Crucible produces an event called the Fire Arts Festival near its facility. The Flamethrower Shooting Gallery, of which I am a Safety Range Officer, will participate once again.
