According to the website, Caltrain will not cut weekend service this fiscal year (ending in June 2011). It may be a possibility for next year.

Bike Lane

Evelyn was converted from two lanes of traffic in either direction to one lane in either direction, a central turn lane, and bike lanes in either direction. This has made my commute a lot more straightforward. I haven't seen an adverse effect on automobile traffic (I drive the road as well as bike it).

Culture Overview

Sometimes pictures speak louder than words. I have no words for this. This site has subsequently been cleaned up.

I took almost no photos at Camp Swing this weekend because I was too busy, or it was too wet to carry my camera around. This photo was taken in the quiet moments before the first class on Friday afternoon. I don't know the woman sitting down; the one on the left is a fantastic Balboa teacher from Auburn.

Lumotec IQ Cyo with V brakes

The mount that comes with the Lumotec IQ Cyo does not offer many options. It is designed to mount the light to the fork crown, but as you can see here, it doesn't work too well with V-brakes. I've heard that it also doesn't work particularly well with caliper brakes or low-profile cantilevers.

I tried to order the beers from most bitter on the left to least bitter on the right. There are a few more IPAs behind the Racer 5.

Late Night

We were only at Boogie by the Bay for one day, but we were there all day. Erin took 7 workshops from 9am until 5:30pm, then we watched some competitions and showcases, and danced. Erin even danced in a Balboa competition. By 1am I called it quits, but the party was still going strong.

This is a composite photo. The sign was posted outside the main ballroom, but the dancers are in the Lindy room.

Boogie by the Bay

West Coast Swing dancers from all over descended on the Hyatt in Burlingame this weekend for the annual swing-dance convention and competition known as Boogie by the Bay.

Egg McMuffin

Hi, what comes with the Egg McMuffin? Can I get fresh fruit instead of the hash browns? Maybe some fresh figs, grapes, and honeydew? How about sourdough toast instead of an English muffin? No? Okay, can you just leave off the muffin then? Oh, and the eggs, how are they cooked? Could I get those poached?

Goats being goats

Now that the section of the Bay Trail is open between Sunnyvale and Mountain View, I take the trail to work sometimes when I have time. It's twice the distance of my normal commute, but it's fun and I get to see stuff I don't normally see.

I took the new section of the Bay Trail home the other evening.

Placerville Bell Tower

My earliest memory of Placerville was one July many years ago my way back from the Sierras where I had gone camping for the first time in my life, encountered a bear for the first time in my life, and rode three passes of the Markleeville Death Ride. My companions included a college professor; a probation officer; professional photographer; and a grad student.

Beautiful skies at Lake Tahoe this past weekend. Heavy thunderstorms in the afternoon, and it rained all night Saturday.

Yet another sunrise

I remember many instances of seeing the sun coming up during my early days at the company; but these days, it's because I came in early, not because I stayed late.
