Bernard St. Tree Removal...

As many of you know, I try not to make this blog too political. But, I received this e-mail today, and wanted to share it with you:

Greetings all!

Here is a link to a guest editorial in the Inlander written by the Mayor regarding the Bernard Street project. He still seems to think this is about trees when it is about the law and the comprehensive plan. Please let him know how you feel about his position. Let him know how you plant to vote the next time a Street Bond proposition is on the ballot. If you are so inclined, write a letter to the Inlander and copy to the Mayor.

New bike dealio

Pretty much ditched my car for a bike, a few months ago. Started researching ways to carry more stuff. The XtraCycle Free Radical attaches to the back of your bike where your rear wheel used to be. Then you take your rear wheel and attach it to the Free Radical. If you want to see more about this, you can click on the link in the title.

As you can see from the picture, you can load it up with a lot of groceries- up to 200 pounds worth! Recently met a Spokane family that has had one of these for years, and swears by them.

Concrete proof of the Loch Ness Monster or dragons, or something...

This was a very large delivery made to our neighbor's house, the other day. Unfortunately, it's not going in the front yard.
