Monday February 8, 2016. In keeping with my tradition of putting a picture of the national debt up again every time it crosses another trillion dollars, here's proof that it's happened again. This time I went through the change in my pocket to see what the farthest apart Presidents I could find there were, chronologically speaking. The oldest was easy, George Washington, the first. They had high expectations for the Presidential dollar coins back then, so they made a lot of them. It's still the most common one of the series. He retired from the job in 1797. The newest turned out to be James Garfield, who held the job for a while in 1881. He was one of the ones that didn't complete even one term.

        

Jan. 2nd, 2016: That stack of cell phones represents a promise among the owners to be present at the table until our shared experience is behind us. Then they go back to being pocket connectivity in many ways. I like the concept, but not enough that I'm going to go out and get a cell phone just to put in that kind of stack.

     



Wednesday October 15th, 2015: The snap on my most comfortable helmet broke during EBBP last Friday. Turns out that the helmet I keep around as sticker decorated shelf art still had a good snap. I cut that off and figured out that threading it onto the newer helmet's strap wasn't that hard. So now the gray and white helmet is fixed. Yay! Maybe the snap has a snappier sound, but I'm not sure about that.

All the time my old helmet spent decorating my bookshelf turned out to be valuable yet again. It just saved me the hassle of getting a new helmet now. Usually I keep it around because I love looking at the stickers from time to time. Now it kind of has a giving tree quality, in that it's lost its snap on this page. Before it was just squished and scrapped from that time the railroad tracks on Market Street ate my front wheel during a critical mass ride. It was the helmet I took to burning man before that. The year I ran for office I wore it every time I went out campaigning by bike. The net impact is that now my helmet has playa dust in the snap indentations, even though most of it hasn't been within a hundred miles of Nevada.
