Because you got a double dose of trouble
and more than your share of contempt,
Your inheritance in the land will be doubled
and your joy go on forever.

After having conducted a controlled experiment, I can confirm that it’s the dried apricots themselves, not the preservatives in store-brand dried apricots. Sorry, anybody who has to be around me for the next 24 to 48 hours, but it was for science. And my taste buds. Yum.
Is this turning into a food blog, or it just me?
Anyway, today I had two good things happen: I made initial contact with a City of Kirkland official about converting a vacant lot in our neighborhood into a park (he was cautiously willing to entertain the possibility, and I have the OK to see what neighbors think); and I pitched an initial outline for organizing the volunteer program to Every, with a quite positive response. Tomorrow I run a meeting with the Bike Alliance staff and will pitch it to them. Each day varies, but I detect a generally positive trend in my effectiveness overall.

Thank you for your contribution to science. Jordan is probably glad that you conducted that experiment, not me.
Is the park going ahead? I’m in contact with Every right now (getting a bike locker! Yay!) and would be happy to help as a volunteer.
Knot – awesome! I’d love to have you volunteer for us, and maybe we can meet up to talk about it. The park CAP idea is still on the books, although I just talked with somebody who thought it could take 1 to 2 years, rather than the 10 months I have. I might still try though.
