Part 1 is here! It's kind of long, so skip to the last paragraphs if you need to. Please let me know what you think.

Another park review!
I want to share a bike-and-hike route I just discovered. It's autumn and the hills are deep in quiet. I looked for amorous tarantulas, but didn't spot any. From Pleasant Hill BART Station, follow the little signs to Iron Horse Trail. You have to cross Treat to what looks like a driveway.

Apple nectarine schnapp lattice pie, yum. The Veganomicon crust recipe is a bust, though. Glutins formed, too bready. Thanks to the north Berkeley folks who set out the pie pan with a note "Free," bubble wrap, and tote bag!

I'm now in the 13 episodes of CrashCourse Chemistry and draft a piece of music to help me remember the history of atmospheric oxygen accumulation since life began stage of an intense cold.

I intervened in a bizarre fistfight at a bus stop this evening. Lots of kindness to all. When called, never hesitate to be the first to step in.

I was surprised to discover my mutual fund (savings) was not excluding fossil fuels companies. I switched. Give back to our planet and divest from fossil fuels. I use Pax World Mutual Fund's Global Environmental Markets Fund.

I live nearby so go often. Light & humorous vibe. Very easy and patient transactions and exchanges. Never used their service but from conversions seem to know their stuff.

Staff needs customer service training! South Asian female worker at the window at 9am Sept 2, 2015 listened poorly and took out letter stamps when I asked for postcard stamps, then lied to me that she had no change for a $20 and told me to go to the bank next door, and finally changed the bill but ignored the exact coin change I had provided. While in line I watched her give a hard time to another customer for using the wrong kind of tape on a package.
