We had some fun with our Bike Everywhere Celebration Station.

Of course it rained on me all the way across town to our location (10mi) but then the sky cleared and we had lovely weather for the duration. My dad stopped by--family resemblance??

I went multimodal (today is going to be looong) and took the light rail north before finishing with another 4.5 miles to the branch I'm filling in at this afternoon. It's so great when work pays me to ride around town. I added a couple photos of sculptures from the Beacon Hill Light Rail station.

I hope you are all enjoying Bike to Work or Bike Everywhere or whatever bike day you are celebrating!

Local bee-lovers protect pollinators: The Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands is working to attract native bees, which do the most pollination. It's one of several local efforts to save and protect pollinators. Plus, learn how to create pollinator havens in your home garden! » http://pcc.coop/1OsrPrG

From my commute last night. My favorite hill to go down, and my least favorite hill to climb. Then my pink socks!

This!
Local music and the public library are getting together, and it’s just like watching two of your best friends turn into the cutest couple. Of course the library’s collection of over 2.2 million items already includes music. Besides physical CDs, they’ve had digital music through Freegal and Hoopla for years. Now the library is going beyond …

What a cool project! Great way to celebrate local music and expose library patrons to it. I wish Portland would do something like that.

Yes, he's quiet on the ploos. Much more active on the twitters and the facepage.

Bike parking at Safeway. Anyone lose a wheel and U-Lock?

I'm just here picking up some supplies for my outreach tonight. We're having nachos (as if those teens would let me near them ;). And .5 miles for my Bike Everywhere team! I usually walk, but biking is faster and easier.

Nah, Wedgwood. I think it would be more likely to get stolen if I brought it in and put it somewhere.

I had a few strange happenings on my commute in to work this morning.

First, a construction bunch up where several trucks all wanted to be in the same space I needed to get through.
Next I met two dudes parked illegally at a light, smoking dubies who wanted to know all about my camera (does that happen to you +Aixe Djelal?) I warned them about the parking enforcement officer across the street (in front of Ballard High School...).

At the infamous Aurora Ave, there was an egregious public display of affection between two people and their friend was really wacked out about it.

And then I ended up behind the Roosevelt HS Marching band for a block. I couldn't get my cell phone out fast enough to video them. Parents and kids were running out of their houses to chase them down the street.

Oh, I'm totally over it +Jessi Lucas and +M Shivik. I never even think anymore about how we had to play our french horns while holding them parallel to the fscking ground; or practicing in subfreezing temperatures, snow, and ice in Oregon in December to prepare for marching the Pasadena Rose Parade, where it was 80F (in full wool uniforms!); or trying to keep those goddamned white shoes clean between halftime shows in the mud and rain; or the fact that in my senior year our football team had the gall to win state, adding several extra games to the normal season; or that marches are some of the worst musical creations in all of human history (and I'm including "hip-hop" and Yanni here). See? Over it. :) :) :)

What a great lady. I'd read a book about her.
Tomorrow marks the start of the 99th Giro d'Italia, one of the three major Grand Tour races. Women are not allowed to compete in these male events, which are, by all standards, the toughest, most challenging and grueling exhibitions of endurance, strength and grit that our sport can demand of an ...

I've heard there's not much on Google Play. Check out Hoopla through your local library. It's free!
 
RIP Prince. Celebrate his discography on demand through hoopla. http://1.kcls.org/1NDXR3y

Good point. I'm happy to say that KCLS is not my library!

Story

Public librarian, mother, biker and sailor.
Introduction
I've been a teen services librarian since 2006, with forays into instruction and service learning coordination and a solid foundation in reference and tech help.

I have a son who's now adult and my boyfriend has three lovely daughters who live with us half time.

I ride a bike for transportation most of the time. We have one car in our household and it's mostly used to move kids. I ride for recreation as well.

We live on a Vagabond 47, which is a ketch (two masted) sailboat. Liveaboard life is grand. I am looking forward to retirement so that I can read my books in a warmer climate.

Everything here was just okay. If you play or sing jazz, you may love it. They have an open mic on Wednesdays and a good house band. Only one person waiting tables and she seemed really overwhelmed. The food was luke warm, the drink selection was blah.

Such good pastries. My favorite is the peach danish, but there are many lovely things to eat here. The coffee is also quite good. When you can get it, the seating is comfortable and it's a good place to chat with a friend over coffee. It is smallish, though and often all the seats are taken.

A very boring shopping experience. Very few stores, nothing unique. If you are looking for a Banana Republic and a movie theater, this is the place for you.

I love this marina. Most of the people are friendly, maintenance problems with the property are taken care of right away. It's a really beautiful location with the Olympic Mountains sitting across the Sound. When the bathroom facilities are upgraded, it will get 5 stars from me.

Local beers, nice cocktail list, plenty of room and good service. I'm not a sports fan so all the screens were distracting. They don't open until 4pm, so definitely more of a night spot.

The food is okay, the beer is okay, the service is okay. The atmosphere is amazing. The building has been beautifully redone and I love all the little touches. A very cool place to see.

I like the food and pickles, the service is okay. The overwhelming number of people who take their dogs here is a turn off. I don't mind a dog or two, but there were 7 in there the last time I went. This place is small enough without dogs sprawled out all over.
