Friday Bulletin Highwomen

Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

The Highwomen Band

If you like music that’s a cross between country and folk check out The Highwomen, a supergroup of female music stars who released their debut album about seven weeks ago.  They made their first live appearance together in April 2019 at Loretta Lynn’s 87th birthday concert in Nashville.  The group is comprised of Amanda Shires, Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby and Maren Morris, all accomplished singer-songwriters.

Friday's best photos - the Guardian

The British newspaper, the Guardian, posts their best ten photographs every day on their site.  They post the editors’ favorite, and the 9 runners up, daily.  The photos are from all over the world and are fascinating.

Intelliskin shirts

Want to improve your posture?  Intelliskin is a line of men’s and women’s athletic clothing designed to improve posture. The line includes sports bras, tights, shirts and shorts that promise to align shoulders, spine and torso while you’re wearing them. Intelliskin was developed by a sports medicine doctor using elastic fabric panels and tight banding to promote good alignment.  The clothes are tight and need to be adjusted to your correct posture.  You also need to build up your muscle endurance over time.

Rough Magic, Lara Prior Palmer

 

 

In her debut ‘feel good’ memoir, 19-year-old Lara Prior-Palmer (she is just as English as she sounds) shares the story of her last-minute entry into the 1,000-mile Mongol Derby – the world’s longest, loneliest, toughest horse race.  Always unconventional, Lara enters the race on a whim and flies to the world of Genghis Khan to race ponies over mountains in heat, wind, and storms.  She brings haphazard equipment and a Winnie-the Pooh journal in which she captures her adventure.  If you enjoyed West with The Night by Beryl Markham, put this on your list.  I listened to the audiobook version.  It is full of poetry and adventure.  Goodreads only gives it a 3.75, but this time you should ignore them. Rough Magic: Riding the World’s Loneliest Horse Race, Published in 2019, $14.67
