September 4th, 2018: Loving the license plate theme in these two race medals.

Sept 2nd, 2018: Did the RACE TO THE END OF SUMMER with Virginia. We were a couple of mile from the end when some guy on a bike going the other way told us "The party at the end is going strong already." When we got there it was mostly over. The volunteers were gathered for a group shot in the finish line chute when we got there. They gave us a nice cheer. After that dissipated learned that there was a big box of last years metals. Picked up the small version of that medal, because I like the license plate theme. Goes nicely with the bronze and yellow thing I earned this year. That was also available in a small version, bit I liked the fact they gave me a big one. Don't remember another time when medal option seemed to be a fashion choice.

     

4/20/18: It was fun being a honcho for San Jose Bike Party's Green Ride.

5/1/18: Got a nice email from someone that wanted me to look at this website. Seemed like good information on a topic we all care about.

5/9/18: After we talked on the phone Nassim made this great "postcard" out of my words. Couldn't resist putting the version above here.

          

Green shirts are on Tian & Virginia at the Go Green race start in Hellyer Park. Tian finished in a PR 3:27:17. We got about the same time.

August 5th: The microwave oven that inhabited the kitchen for many years made a loud noise and stopped cooking stuff a few weeks ago. Probably I got at least a dozen good years of cooking out of it. Took me a while to get around to ordering a replacement. Didn't want to get one from the same company, that one should have lasted a bit longer. Ordered this GE at Lowe's because they had bike parking for customers, unlike the other store around here that sells built in microwave ovens. It finally got here on Sunday. So happy to be able to heat water without warming the kitchen again!
