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

Sept 23nd, 2018: Did Viva Calle with Virginia. It was the kickoff event for the car free streets celebration. I did it at a walk, averaging about 20 minute miles. Mainly that was because of my bad back. Virginia did it at closer to 12 minute miles. Turns out her friend Becky also had a bad back, so we walked trading stories and learning about each other. She's a mom with teenagers who was born in Redwood City and has spent most of her life in this area. Nice lady with a day job who is looking forward to her kids getting launched. The miles went by quickly.

     

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!
