Circumnavigating the world in less than three months might not impress the modern traveler, but for 19th-century adventurer Phileas Fogg from “Around the World in 80 Days,” it’s a lightning-fast trip.

If you were in town for Easter Sunday you heard the unusual sound of thunder throughout Incline. It was strange to wake up to a real thunderstorm, and many locals actually thought it was an avalanche. Sure did make the dogs and cats in town climb back under the covers.

Forget Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, the greatest show on earth is the Big Dance. They run faster, jump higher and throw down alley-oops that make your eyes flutter in disbelief when you see it happen, not to mention knocking your beer over in the celebration.

CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. — Diego’s Umbrella covers music’s mirthful idiosyncrasies: the indefatigable spirit of Gorgol Bordello and Joe Stummer, the cleverness of Les Claypool and Roger Clyne and the theatrics, dare we say, of Tortelvis. This Camper Van Radiohead of a band brings all this to mind, but we might be too contemplative. “The idea is to be over the
