A Walk On The Wildside Extra Quality

We open up on Brittas taking a stroll through the streets of Whitbury for reasons that are initially unclear. Once he makes it into the centre, the purposes of the walks is revealed, it's part of his "walking for health" program, which he had put forward to the European Commission and is now a Euro-Directive. As part of the program, he must find fifty interesting walks in Whitbury. Whilst he is preparing these walks, he finds out from an old map that a public footpath exists in the centre. Marking out the exact direction, he first gets Colin to create a hole through the ladies' bathroom, scaring a woman in the process.

A walk on the wildside

Whilst Colin continues marking the public right of way, he accidentally lets the vials containing the diseases to the ground. The walkers come in anyway, though Brittas has Carole and Colin spray them with a liquid in a bid to protect them from disease. Just then, Julie appears and reveals that the public right of way was repealed when the centre was built. Brittas proceeds to make Gavin get rid of the ramblers.

When you change your base of support (what you are standing on or in), your body reacts differently to balance, body control, and coordination challenges. Also, kids love walking on stilts or in bigger shoes, and it can be a great confidence booster when they realize that they can do it.

2. Create a maze on the floor using tape, or if you are outside, use sidewalk chalk. Place a few low obstacles along the path. Some suggestions are: twigs, a low hung rope, a ramp of some sort, or a pile of leaves. Allow the path to travel on both hard (tile, hardwood, or concrete) and soft ground (grass or carpet).

GRANITE CITY, Ill. – His back aching, his knees throbbing, his body unable to stand any longer, the pudgy, white-haired 56-year-old needs to sit down."Maaaam?" he says to the woman leaning on the empty bar stool. "Are you using that chair?"A pause.Bill Holden is walking across America, on a quest to raise money to fight juvenile diabetes."I just walked 1,800 miles and could really use a place to sit."

The woman laughs. "And I thought my Honda got great gas mileage," she deadpans. But this is no joke. The man who can barely walk across the room, the man who needs to lean on the bar just so he can stand, has indeed used his feet to get here.From Arizona."My name is Bill Holden," he says, extending one hand while balancing himself with the other. "I'm walking across America to raise money for juvenile diabetes."The seat's his.An hour later, a waiter takes Holden's dinner order. "Seth," Holden says softly after eyeing the teenager's name tag, "you tell the chef that you've got a guy out here that just walked 1,800 miles and he wants the biggest plate of spaghetti and meatballs he's ever seen.""Yes sir," the kid replies.

So this is how you get by. This is how you leave family, friends and normalcy behind, jam your life into a duffel bag and live on the road – literally – for six months. This is how you spend half a year by yourself, crossing the country step by step, on a pair of knees devoid of cartilage, searching for your soul. Strangers become friends. The unfamiliar becomes familiar. And your entire view of the world is refreshed."It's like sitting in an empty theater," Holden said. "And every day a new cast of characters comes across the stage to perform for me. You never know who it's going to be, what they're going to say, but it's always a great show.HOLDEN IN MOTIONThis Old Cub "It's renewed my spark in life."It's beyond comprehension. Walk outside, watch the ground pass under your feet and imagine heading for the next town, the next state. Imagine walking over mountains, across rivers, around lakes. Imagine doing it in snowstorms, thunderstorms and sweaty 95-degree heat. Then imagine doing it by yourself, your only human contact coming with strangers who don't believe where you've been and can't grasp where you're going.This has been the life of Bill Holden since Jan. 11, when, motivated by the story of Ron Santo, he hopped on a highway in Prescott Valley, Ariz., and headed for Wrigley Field with two goals: to raise $250,000 for juvenile diabetes and to arrive in time for the Cubs' July 1 game against the Nationals. (Today, Monday, June 6, he's in Springfield, IL, on his way to Lincoln, IL. About 240 miles still to go.)Until he gets to the Friendly Confines, the endearing Irishman with a deep voice, puffy red cheeks and an infectious sense of humor is a modern-day nomad. Unemployed, divorced with two grown kids, he wakes up each morning with a singular goal: to make it to the next dot on his map.

CandyAnn the MuleThis domesticated animal was integral to the success of the Erie Canal. The canal was the waterway superhighway of its day, with mules walking along tow paths dragging barges filled with cargo. CandyAnn lives in the Heritage Farm area of the Zoo in a rehabilitated historic barn. Nearby, visitors can learn more about Erie Canal, how locks work, and see a recreation of a river barge. 350c69d7ab
