Naps are Wonderful!

PS:  I feel better about selling the car.  It was the right thing to do at the right time.

car sold...

Car sold today at noon.  Mixed feelings.  It was my first.  And, it is another big change since my divorce.  Arggg.

Selling my car...

Hi Everyone,
Well, as it comes down to it I am nervous about being "carless".  Tomorrow is the big day and the plan is still on.  However, I don't know what the hold up is emotionally.  It seems so ingrained that having a car is somehow the adult thing, and might I say it the American thing as well.

I really believe that I don't need a car while I live in the Bay Area.  Months have gone by and I have not used it.  There is good and great mass transit here in the East Bay.  CityCarShare is wonderful, easy and cheep.  I will save hundreds of dollars a year (maybe even thousands).

Still I have this hesitation in doing the deed - finally being done with the car.   I will be healthier without it.  It is a good economic choice.  (and it is pretty darn eco-happy).

I love riding my bike, especially in the rain.

Car Owner,
PS My plan is to mail the Aids Life Cycle caps soon -- so I will cut off the give at the same time.  I wanted to give out at least 20 and I am at 18ish.  Tell your friends to email me if they are going to ride in the ALC 2010.  I will give them a cap -- for fund raising --or just for fun.

Hi All,
I can't find the attachment for my mac that lets me post photos.  Lucky for all of us this happy Etsy customer sent me this great photo of him on St. Patick's day no less!

Thank you Patrick!  He also has a cool Etsy page and here is the link:

Great shop in Hayward TU TIENDA AZTECA and Aids Life Cycle cap give a way!!

Hi Everyone,
   Walked in to this great shop in Hayward on B street.  It is called Tu Tienda Azteca.  This shop is full of wonders from Mexico.  And the owner of the shop Oscar is a fab artist as well.  I love his Mexican Wrestler Wall Mirror - he made it with stensles and spray paint.  It is just so nifty with a 50's vibe.
  Here i a link to the shop:  Or better yet go to the shop.  Lots of great Day of the Dead items too, and a new Loteria set of cards (& the old one too).

See you soon,

P.S.  Aids Life Cycle riders : If you have ordered your free cap for riding this year -- they will be mailed out at the end of March (I am making them now).   If you haven't resquested your yet... well why not.  Send me an email at with your address and I will add you to the list.  It is that easy.  The cap will be one of my Lupe caps and I will mail it to you.  You can use it for fund raising or just keep it for good luck while riding.  You are doing the hard part ... I just make caps.  :)X

City Car Share! I am so happy!

I am getting closer to my goal of being car free in 2010!  I just signed up for City Car Share in San Francisco.  I love it, them, the website everything/person about it.  Take a look.

I'll take a photo of the car in the a.m.
