I’m going to attempt to have a July free from single use plastic. Why? Because plastic doesn’t really get recycled like everyone thinks it does. The USA sells our plastic recycling to other countries who might recycle it but often just burn it or put it in a landfill. Lately many countries have started refusing … More Plastic free July
Controversial title? Oh yeah. I was going to use the word “hate” instead of “dislike” but it’s really not quite at the level that I would consider “hate”. Today is “bike to work day” in San Francisco Bay Area where I live. Lots of people will be riding their bikes today instead of commuting by … More Why I don’t like bike to work day.
Oh googlemaps, you’re so funny with your “mostly flat” when there’s actually two giant hills. Mostly flat? Well sure, but that bit that ISN’T flat. Yikes. I’m sure some google engineer that rides a high end road bike with lots of gears might be able to get up the hill, so the algorithm says “mostly … More Mostly Flat
Four years ago today, the contents of our house in Ohio got packed into a giant moving truck in preparation for our move to Silicon Valley. The high temperature that day was 28 F (-2C). It was cold, really cold. Packing up the house meant that we had the front door wide open for most … More 4 years later…
One of our neighbors gets a Blue Apron delivery once a week. Blue Apron is basically a box of ingredients and a list of recipes. From what I understand of the service, you choose the recipes you want to make (from the list on their website) and they send you the things to make it. … More Grocery delivery.
My spouse and I were talking about voting next week and how I feel like it really doesn’t matter if I vote or not. California is one of those states where the majority of the population (that is allowed to vote) all thinks one way. One vote doesn’t really make a difference. Either I’m voting with … More Alienation and alien nation
Except that sometimes you can. When we first moved here, we picked what we thought was an awesomely amazing apartment. It has a nice location next to a multi-use trail, a park that was nearby, and walking distance to a couple of grocery stores, and a cute little “downtown” with coffee shops, restaurants, and a … More You can’t go home again…
Our adorable precocious child will be 5 years old soon. That means he should be starting kindergarten soon. His birthday is very close to the cut off date for kindergarten entry. He’s very intelligent (I might be biased) but we don’t think he’s emotionally & socially ready to attend school with 20+ kids. So we will … More People will think we’re crazy.
Yeah…no…not gonna lie….I’ve missed three days and it’s only the 7th, so I really don’t think this is going to happen. Maybe next year? I just don’t have that many places I need to go. I hate the idea of having to go peddle around just because it’s May and I’m supposed to bike every … More The end of bike every day in May.
I didn’t bike today. We went to a local bicycle show that ended being a massive disappointment. Then we came home and I took a nap.
