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.
Weekly shopping trip to the neighborhood store. Tracking app only caught the ride back, but that’s ok 🙂 Only a mile, but it’s a mile that an awful lot of people would’ve driven a car. Slower than average speed, but hey…you’d be slow too if you were hauling 50 or so pounds of groceries on … More Day 5: Ride every day in May

We live in a decidedly suburban area. Lots of asphalt, concrete, and buildings. We’re not worried (yet) about wildfire. But wildfire smoke? Oh yeah. That’s a … More Where there’s smoke….
It’s not our city…we just live here. Looks like we’ll be moving soon anyways. Apartment complex is “upgrading” the apartments so they can charge a lot more for rent. We don’t know how much they’ll hike up our rent, but we’re guessing “a lot”. Also they’ll likely want us to move out sooner rather than … More It’s not our city….
Setup business in Cupertino, spend your money here, just don’t drive on our roads, live in our city (we don’t want more multi-family housing), go to our schools, or build/renovate office space for your company (Perhaps you’d like to set up shop in the Vallco mall? We have lots of space going to waste there, … More Cupertino in a single jpg
