Iris equips its students with the power to read quickly and effectively, reducing molasses-slow reading habits to rubble and replacing them with a laserlike ability to consume and comprehend literature. With a five-hour class, students will learn drills to drum up the speed of their reading, creative note-taking tips, and how to better retain knowledge gathered during reading. Different mediums of information conveyance will also be covered, such as technical materials, magazines, newspapers, and websites. Past students have reported reading up to five times faster as a result of Iris's instruction, leaving more time for hobbies such as carpet weaving or ship-in-a-bottle smashing.
Wheels whirl and records spin every night at Roller Time, as the DJs unreel a slamming mix of R & B, rock, hip-hop, country, and the classic retro skating jams for cycle-shod revelers. Groupon holders can make a skate date for two with their favorite friend or ventriloquist dummy, or plan two solo days of freewheeling fun. The glimmering disco ball casts its old-school sparkle on graceful skaters and sated snackers alike, who fuel up for their next bout around the rink with the included fountain drinks as well as scrumptious snacks and temptingly wheel-shaped pizzas (not included with this Groupon).
Star HB Farms’ prime perch atop Drake Mountain affords it not only sweeping panoramas of greater Huntsville, but also positions it for dramatic horseback trail rides down the rolling, leafy slopes. Managed by the Baker family since the 1970s, the farm employs 22 gentle horses ranging from ponies to barrel racers. The steeds excel as modes of transport for rides through the rolling wilderness or enthusiastic audiences for a recently purchased pair of rhinestone chaps. After hanging out with their equine partners, visitors can pair their trail rides with humans-only activities such as cookouts, birthday parties, or bonfires.
