Riding Attire   I’m exercised out after reading the Indy article, “Council Puts Wheels in Motion for Bike Safety.” I’m excited that the Council put the pedal to the metal to discover alternate biking routes to Coast Highway. It can’t be soon enough. And then I thought, what if council members, Toni Iseman, Steve Dicterow, […]

I’m excited about Thursdays. The other days are boring because they don’t have outdoor movie night at the Ranch. Instead, on those non-Thursdays, there’s a never-ending rerun of men lying about their golf scores and handicaps.
