Freebie Friday 4.15.11

Worthy Things to Do, Listen To, or View that Won’t Cost You a Dime 

Welcome to the April 15 edition of Freebie Friday. It’s been a busy week, and with that extra post yesterday, it’s going to be a two-thing week.

Thing One: All you tax-filing procrastinators out there, in case you don’t already know it, you have a reprieve this year. You have until April 18th to get that postmark stamped on your envelope. For those of you who are racing to finish, here are 30 last-minute tax tips from SmartMoney. 

Thing Two: It is hard to believe, but the first manned orbit of the earth took place 50 years ago! Documentary filmmakers on board the International Space Station recreated Yuri Gagarin's pioneering 108 minute orbit and combined this new footage with archival footage, Gagarin's original mission audio, and a new musical score to create the film First Orbit, which was released on YouTube on April 12, the anniversary of the flight. You can watch it in its entirety here. For more information, visit the First Orbit site

Have a great weekend! 

FYI Why a piñata? Just like a blog link, until you open it, you won’t know what’s inside.
