Don't go overboard and launch yourself off a 20-foot jump, but DO actively be positive about your performance!

What cyclists want drivers to know - I think this list covers it all. Well done,  +Kathy Long 
Drivers get impatient with cyclists but sometimes what they criticize is their own fault. Here's what cyclists wished they knew to keep everyone smiling.

Jon me Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Fun, relaxing afternoon in beautiful garden overlooking the bay, listening to Celtic music and being delighted by tunes from the one of a kind accordionist, The Great Morgani, who makes his own wild head-to-toe costumes. It's an annual benefit for the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival.  $40 tix include wine and snacks. On sale now. https://scbf.tixato.com/buy/music-in-the-garden/05-24-2015-0200pm--4

I'm droning on about the new drone conference but off I go! Stoked to geek out. 
The drones are coming! The drones are coming! Actually, drones are already here, worldwide, and proliferating rapidly in industry, recreation, and of course, the military. But there is something new and exciting happening!What's new is that top executives from Google, Facebook, Amazon, UPS, GoPro, NASA and FAA are converging May 1-3 in my beautiful coastal city of Santa Cruz, California, (90 mins. south of San Francisco) to attend the first-ever ...

Use your blinker. Use your blinker at a stoplight in rush hour, when you can clearly see a half-mile of stopped traffic behind you. Use it at a dirt-road intersection on the high plains of Wyoming, with twenty miles of ...

Wait, that'd mean they'd have to stop talking on their cellphones to do that.  No way that'd ever happen.

+Richard Masoner, do you mean the wildfire smoke was bothering you here in Santa Cruz? I got a whiff or two. But nothing like when I had to cut a wonderful Tahoe mt. bike trip short due to blazing fires up there a few years ago.

Proponents of bike cameras say they're the key to holding reckless drivers accountable where enforcement of laws protecting cyclists falls short.

The Rational Moving team was super careful, fast, thorough and courteous. There were 3 strong, professional, movers overseen by Rational Moving owner George. I loved supporting a family-owned business. I can't say enough good things about all our communications (on the phone) prior to the move and during the move. On the phone, I spoke to George's wife, Abby, several times to coordinate all the details. Abby was super friendly, helpful and returned my calls quickly. The moving cost came within George's estimate. Rational Moving earned my highest recommendation. Thanks to my amazing realtor Celeste Faraola of Schooner Realty for the recommendation.

Rebecca Stark offers a wonderful blend of fun and professionalism while getting your portraits done. In my case, I wanted a professional headshot for business to use on my social media networks. She took a number of fabulous photos onsite in her studio, then quickly offered me a selection to choose from and touched up ones I liked best. Rebecca Stark Photography is an excellent and reasonably priced service.

Gutter Patrol and Window Shine came to my home for spring window cleaning for the first time in June 2013. I am very pleased with work itself; windows are gloriously clean. Clean and sparkly! Great workers. Plus, I appreciated the clear communications about price estimate, scheduling and the degree of professionalism. I will hire them again. Honestly, hadn't realized how much of a difference clean windows make. What a boost!
