IN TODAY'S BLOG:  Crosby, Stills & Nash kick off Eagle Fun Days; How high is high/how deep is deep a graphic to get a perspective on the depth of an oil rig; A Hunk of Burning Spud-Mr. Potato Head; The Daily Page with convenient facts.

The new venue The Eagle River Pavilion is the site for the CSN concert tonight.  Here's a taste of an acoustic concert from a couple of years ago.   

The concert is the kick off for the Eagle Fun Days.  Famous for it's Rocky Mtn Oyster Feed, the Wet and Wild parade and the rodeo. 

 

Well this certainly puts things in perspective. Check out this graphic which shows from the tallest peak on Earth's surface to the lowest point in the ocean. Bonus: it gives you an idea of just how deep the Deepwater Horizon oil rig reaches.

 

 

As Tracy put it "he's a Hunk of Burning Spud." The new Mr. Potato Head is the King. The first of the Elvis potato heads will be released for Elvis Tribute Week in August. The toy will be in a jumpsuit. A second version — with the likeness dressed in black leather — will be on the market for Christmas
