Bicycle Lessons

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving”
- Albert Einstein


This week I contacted the San Diego Bicycle coalition to find a bicycle instructor for Phoebe and Naomi. They've been complaining for ages that they're the only kids in their classes who can't ride a bicycle. We don't own any. We have no where to store them. We're not allowed to keep them on the patio because we live with an authoritarian HOA. The only place it's allowed is in the bike lock-up in the basement and that requires we pay a number of fees. It also means they would be all the way in the basement, so my kids will never bother to try to ride them. Anyway, with their huge Spring break coming (five weeks!!) I thought it would be good to have something for them to do. So now I just need to get a couple of helmets.

Mike is home from his show in Chicago. This is a quick sketch video he made in the airport while waiting hours for his plane....






YAY! It's Conan. :)

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
