Cargo Bicycles for African Coffee Growers... 13 d
more about cargo bicycles in Africa
Throughout 2011, the customers of Yuba Bicycles were invited to donate money to send several Yuba Mundo longtail cargo bikes to Level Ground’s HOPE Project in Tanzania. Yuba matched the donations on a dollar per dollar basis throughout the year. In the end, six bikes were donated to the Ileje, Tanzania, coffee growers collective.
The donated bicycles arrived at the coffee growers collective on December 22 and have already made life easier for the farmers.

Why I Bought a House in Detroit...a very good article 3 y
interesting article about reclaiming property in Detroit
My first job out of college was working for a construction company in Detroit.
“We’re an all-black company and I need a clean-cut white boy,” my boss told me over drinks in a downtown bar when he hired me. “Customers in the suburbs don’t want to hire a black man.”
When a service call would come in, we would ask, “Does he sound white or black?” If it was the former, I would bid the job. If the latter, my boss would. Detroit is one of the most segregated metro areas in the nation, and for the first time I was ... read more

First Draft Done! 4 y
novel writer here! my short story is almost done and snow has arrived...yay...not.
Where did the year go? I am wrapping up a short story and my first spiritual semi-historical novel about world war two. Gosh I am looking outside and folks I MISS my bicycle even though it’s only ten degrees outside.
One of my goals is to get my bike riding back on track next spring even if I live somewhere rural and ”not exciting”. It doesn’t matter. It is ME that has the problem. Mother Nature isn’t boring and unexciting.
I’ve had a very intense year and my reading has revolved around world war two biographies, holocaust survivor testimonies, documentaries... very deep, dark stuff ... read more

Christmas at Emerson's Coffee House
I’ve been working on my first novel using the ”novel in thirty days” format. I started it while I was in school at the end of the semester. Really it came out of a need to contribute something to the world and also deep job dissatisfaction.
Every day I read from al anon One Day At a Time and spiritual books. I’m also in the midst of Sophie’s Choice. I broke my kindle reader so I finally bought a kindle fire HD for my xmas gift and also getting on the dean’s list.
It’s snowing and cold up here. I’d like to ... read more

Lyme Disease and my summer 5 y
recovering energy in the midst of lyme disease
Here’s a video from my recent walk... I’ve not done much in the way of riding this summer. I thought it was job stress and about two months or so ago, I noticed an odd rash on my groin that I thought was JOCK ITCH. YUCK. I don’t know when I was bit, prolly on a bike ride about two weeks before this rash showed up. I believe that I’ve had lyme disease for a while and had some atypical symptoms, like the constipation,etc. This whole time I was struggling with fatigue, depression,etc. UGH... So anyway, I’m on doxycycline twice a day for a month and am now starting to feel better.
I feel summ ... read more

too distressed to be blessed...don't yalls who live in cold weather areas miss summer fun!
My husband bought me a new laptop when my netbook shat the bed. I’m so blessed to live in the land of opportunity where you can buy laptops for under $400. I was going to the library and ready to go there for a while but he insisted. Who am I to argue?
Anyway, winter decided to show up. I went out for a few walks but no cycling. I’ve taken to using the spinbike at the gym. I miss bike riding and meandering about during the summer and fall. I was getting a little depressed for a minute and sensed winter blues sinking its fangs into me. The spinbike does wonders especially if I can perch ... read more
