Before they became the Next Big Thing in the late 1970s, seminal post-punk band Talking Heads did something that thousands of other young bands have done – they recorded some demos. And those early recordings are just now surfacing.
The demos by David Byrne, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth were recorded in 1975 at CBS in New York during the band’s struggling-artist phase (the label passed on signing them).
Nicer weather is here and I've made a few challenges for myself this summer.
Try to bike to work more.
Walk to where I need to do my errands after work instead of drive.
Eat meals by water instead of sitting in front of the T.V.
Take a walking tour of different areas in my community at least once a week.
Little things like this can help us feel better mentally and physically. We live in a great community so lets explore it and enjoy it together!

The Penguin Foundation has a global callout for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.
Knitter Lyn Blom is the receptionist at Phillip Island Nature Parks in Victoria and has knitted many penguin jumpers over the years.
The Penguin Foundation is based at Phillip Island, which is known for having a large penguin colony.
Lyn Blom says it's not just major oil spills that cause problems for local penguins.
"Fishermen might clean out a container or something while they're at sea," says Lyn.
"It's a continuing problem," she says. "We get probably about 20 birds a year."
One advantage of knitting a penguin sweater is that they are small.
"They're very quick," says Lyn.
The Penguin Foundation also distributes the jumpers to other wildlife rescue centres where needed.
You can download more information about how to knit for penguins, including the knitting pattern and where to send the finished product.
While the Penguin Foundation's website says it currently has a 'good supply' of the little jumpers, the organisation also uses them in educational programs as well as selling them as a fundraising measure.
In 2011 the foundation raised money for a new Phillip Island Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre which can house up to 1500 penguins in the event of a major oil spill.
