Bikers X-walk Signal

Bikers X-walk Signal

Bikers X-walk Signal in Vancouver, B.C.  This is cool.  I live in Washington State and the bikers in downtown Seattle are nutz and all over the place.

As you can see the bike lane is actually separated by median.  Bikers seem to have there own light timing as well so they go with the walkers.  This seems like a far more efficient way of doing it.

I don’t know if this is like this everywhere in B.C., but it was in downtown Vancouver where traffic was dense.

Blogging 101 (Zero to Hero): Day Four

Blogging 101: Love Your Theme

Under Construction

Under Construction


So today I get to use the ‘web page under construction’ image.  Wow how retro.  Be that as it may, I am looking at different themes as part of todays assignment.

Hehehe you won’t see much, but be assured it will happen.  So I have looked at several themes as well as looking at some of those themes in active use to see how the customization differs from personality to personality.  I ask you what it is it, even if it is just one tiny thing, that drew you to your theme?

Weeklly Photo Challenge: On Top

Room with a view.

A small glass room, just big enough for two.

While I was not on the top floor of this high rise, I was on the 20th floor.  That’s the highest I have ever stayed overnight.  I can tell you it was an interesting experience.  I was able to watch the world move on and just sit in this little nook that was only big enough to hold a small round table and four chairs.  This nook was a corner window from floor to ceiling.  The table slid into the corner with one chair on each glass wall and the other two chairs along the edge of the kitchen area.  It was very exposed and for the first time in many year, I was not afraid to be or sleep the high up.

There was not much in the way of sound that high up and I found it very fascinating to watch and wonder what people were doing.  How was their day going as they moved along the street or drove their cars along the road.  Then there is the church across the street. This is St. Andrew’s-Wesley, a designated heritage building in Vancouver, B.C., nestled among the 30, 40, 50, and yes 60 story buildings.

On the other side of on top,  for me at least, was looking up and finding an amazing bust looking down at me.  I don’t have any info on the  building.  The sculpture was several stories up and about halfway up the building.  Reminds me of a ships figurehead.  There looks like a door behind her where you might be able to step out.  I wonder what she has seen form her place on top as the world moves on below.

The image is poor as a result in the height and weather, as it was snowing that day.

Blogging 101 (Zero to Hero): Day Three

Today’s assignment: write the post that was on your mind when you decided to start a blog.

A growing desire to talk to other people in other places. To exchange ideas and views. To share information.  I’m not a hermit or a recluse, but I’m not “social butterfly”.  I want this to be one of the balances.

I really do have something to say and someone somewhere will find interest in it even if I don’t think so at times. I have so much to learn… and share.

Daily Post: Junk Food Junkie

What’s your biggest junk food weakness? Tell us all about it in its sugary, salty, glory.


The first thing I think of is Larry Groce’s ‘Junk Food Junkie’ released back in ’76.  While I’m still a bit of a snacker, I’m not the junkie I was as a kid.

I think my most favorites are potato chips and pizza.  Now, as some of you know, I went gluten free last year.  If I could get a really, REALLY good pizza, I’d probably be in bad shape.  As it is, pizza is ok, so I don’t eat it as much as I used to.  Chips on the other hand… sigh.  I love just plain ol salty chips. No flavors, just dippers.  Lays classics and Ruffles classic are the best.  Kettle style? Tim’s and Cape Code.  The way they either just melt on the roof of your mouth or the crunch and snap. Its heaven.
