Well, it was the week of culture. Last Thursday Sherry and I saw Paul Potts at the Mesa Arts Center. They were great seats (front row balcony) that she bought months ago when I had mentioned that I could not stop watching the following video of his on YouTube:
And here is his semi-final performance; goosebumps anyone?
How can you not root for this guy? He ended up winning the whole show and is now on tour after making his first CD. What a great story…
I also made it to the Banff Film Festival over the weekend, which included a one-hour documentary about a local Phoenix paraplegic who attempted to make it up Mount Kilimanjaro on a hand-cranked bike. My good friend Roger actually went on the expedition; read more about it here.
That bike weighs 53 pounds. No two ways about it; this man is a serious stud.
