    My brother was part of the fencing team in high school and was the saber champion for two years in a row. So my family low-key keeps tabs on the sport of fencing. Fencing has always been dominated by the Europeans, but I'm so happy to say that the US has finally gotten gold in fencing for the very first time in this year's Olympics at Tokyo, by Lee Kiefer!

    The following video is a fantastic interview with Lee Kiefer which gives us insights on what went on behind the foil, her love for the sport and her "almost retirement" after the Rio competitions and the elation at winning the very first gold for herself and for the US!

    Congratulations, Lee Kiefer!

    I'm a Gen-Xer and was browsing some heavy metal music that I hadn't listened to in a long time and came across this one:

    Anthrax - Indians (Official Music Video)


    It's an amazing song but also effectively brought awareness of the plight of Native Americans. Near the end of it, it has a really fantastic section where the lead axe man would cry out "WAR DANCE!" and everyone in the mosh pit would dance their heads off and go crazy!

    Well, decades later, the band is still together. This second video is their concert in Chile, 2013. I have to say that this is THE MOST AMAZING MOSH PIT WAR DANCING I've ever seen! If you want, you can skip ahead to 4 minutes, 40 seconds to the War Dance part:

    Chile, you ROCK! 🤘🤘🤘

    Hilary Hahn, one of my most favorite solo violinists. Technically perfect when she plays, but such a fun person herself! She can wear anything wack and I would still love her, lol!
