Events coming down the pike, or is it pipe?

Hello Blog Readers!

Welcome back to the blog! First off, I want to welcome Alexana Winery to the Willamette Valley. ecoShuttle looks forward to transporting many a guest to your new establishment, good luck to you and see you soon!
Secondly, I want to point out that there are some excellent events on the horizon, including Memorial Day weekend.


Do you have any plans for Memorial Day Weekend? If not, you should book a wine tour to check out Alexana Winery and then you could stop by Archery Summit and a winery of your choosing. Okay, just a suggestion!

Some other things we are looking forward to this summer: Waterfront Blues Fest (this year’s lineup includes the Steve Miller Band, Galactic and Booker T, among others), Pickathon (featuring Thee Oh Sees, Blitzen Trapper, The War on Drugs and Neko Case, among other amazing bands!).

 

And now, some random yet important facts:

The Cincinnati Reds were the first professional baseball team.

If a household switched to cold water laundry washing for a year, they would save enough energy to watch TV for 1,363 hours. 

Park benches and cosmetics products both contain toxic coal ash.

The first cell phone call was placed on April 3rd 1973.

On the average, the 140 million cars in America are estimated to travel almost 4 billion miles in a day, and according to the Department of Transportation, they use over 200 million gallons of gasoline doing it. 

Kim Jong-nam, the oldest son of Kim Jong-Il, was originally going to replace his father but lost his chance after a “botched attempt” to visit Japan’s Disneyland. 

Okay, that’s all for this week. See you next time!
