Badwater 135, taking athletes from Bad Water 135 miles to Mt. Whitney at over 14,000 ft. Next year, however, Death Valley National Park put a moratorium on foot and cycling races through the desert until they can find a way to make it safer.

I am now 52 years old and not once in my travels have I been asked not to mentioned the name Christmas. In fact, I go out of my way to say "Merry Christmas" to all strangers and business customers in Los Angeles.
This year in particular, I've noticed more and more department store employees using the salutation of "Merry Christmas." How refreshing! Those that do say "Happy Holidays," I will usually say "Merry Christmas" back or ask them what holiday they are referring to. In every instance so far..., they smile (as if I gave them permission), and say "Merry Christmas" back to me.
Merry Christmas, Everyone!
