Sigur Ros Video Featuring Down Symdrome Actors

What is it about Iceland? This unforgettable and award-winning video, conceived by and supervised by the musical group, Sigur Ros, features the Perlan special-needs theatre group acting out a simple but beautiful play about the elements. From what I hear, Sigur Ros are all the rage among college students.

Rancho Friends Faith & Nora

Someone's Got The Giggles!

Rancho Needs Your Help!

We just found out that our little Jack needs to get glasses! Does anyone know where we can find a good selection of styles for him. We (I) would like to find something that doesn't look like big rubber Harry Potter glasses but don't know if there anything other than that available for someone his age.

Also, if anyone has any strategies or resources for keeping a pair of glasses on a kid that absolutely HATES anything on his head or face. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Pimp My Ride!

Always looking to be a bit different, I decided to do a little pinstriping job to Jack's ride. I also added some bloodshot eyes to complete the look.
